Thank you for the post about Amanda! What an inspiration. I'm not sure how I would do 1200 calories a day with a family. She just had herself and her husband to "do food" for. I guess if I was truly ready I could do it.
I have been wanting to post about a recent encounter with an inspiring woman. I was in church Sabbath of Mother's Day weekend and Pastor Dan was giving out flowers to the different women in church (who has the youngest baby, who has the most children, etc.) One of the things he mentioned was women who had run a marathon and a handful of women stood. Then he started whittling them down by age. The last woman standing was Gladys, age 92. I was awed!! She looked no older than in her early 70's to me. I was so impressed I came home and googled her. (My mother taught me that) The search came up with an article from KITV.com about the Honolulu Marathon in December 2010.
