Love the protein myth article and Stacey's chicken.

But Jersey Mom's post has me most intrigued. I was one of those kids, far ahead of my grade level (almost skipped a few grades, but my parents nixed the idea). I was always told how smart I was, by my parents, by my teachers, by everyone I met.

And as an adult, I am admittedly lazy about achieving my goals. I never finished college. I am also slightly afraid of failure, but even more terrified of looking stupid. I also cheated once or twice in school.

Jersey Mom, any time. That was a really insightful post.
