It's only been five days since I got serious about losing some weight and eating well, and already I feel MUCH better. I've lost almost four and a half pounds (it always comes off fast that first week!), I'm sleeping better, and my IBS issues have calmed down considerably.

Absolutely! I was having lower back pain and that is gone. And I'm just more comfortable in my skin now that my weight is heading down rather than up.

It's still new for me, but I find I'm already feeling a little better. I have a bit more energy and my knees don't ache as much.

for me it's about all the things I can now do that I had trouble with before. I can bend over and tie my shoes. walking up a flight of stairs is no problem. I had asthma and now it's gone. I don't need junk food any more either.........don't miss it.

I feel horrible when I "cheat"

The only "diet" that works is consistency!

I've cut way back on sugar and salt so my BP doesn't spike the way it used to after I ate.
I eat a very healthy diet (aiming for 5 to 7 servings of freggies a day) and I feel much better for it. More energy, less cravings, no indigestion, and no crazy spikes and slumps from sugar rush

Not if I don't eat enough carbs, my husband says I act like an old fishwife, nasty bad mood, he would rather I eat more and smile more.

Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

Feel better with more energy and sturdier from working out, especially stronger legs.

Yes, I have more energy, my asthma is not as bad, and I sleep better when I am following a healthier regime.

I definitely feel better. A few that come to mind:

1. Most days I have more energy
2. Emotionally I feel better. I like that I am making healthier choices and taking control of my eating habits. I feel better shopping for smaller clothes.
3. My garden has expanded with my desire to eat healthier, so I'm proud of my garden and eating from it.

Since you have healthier habits, do you feel better? How?
