Healing My Way Thin

I stepped away from Sparkpeople for a while to undergo medical care and do a rigorous restriction of food. I feel infinitely better today because of my long-term elimination diet. Now that I've identified and eliminated triggers, I can begin to heal.

I stepped away from Sparkpeople for a while to undergo medical care and do a rigorous restriction of food. I feel infinitely better today because of my long-term elimination diet. Now that I've identified and eliminated triggers, I can begin to heal.

In August I spent several weeks eating raw vegan as a way to treat a handful of chronic illnesses, and replete on nutrients. The exorbitant amount of whole natural plants was nothing short of a miracle for my body, remarkably improving several debilitating health conditions.

On Sep 3rd, I started my journey to new habits, a new lifestyle, a new normal. I have committed to losing 4% of my body weight by Sep 30th. No crazy programs or diets, just tons of whole natural plant-based protein, vegetables, fruit, sprouted legumes, and the occasional pastured animal protein as tolerable by my body.

My ticker reflects my September goal. I'm well on my way!

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal. And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach. But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.....
It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"

Be your own hero, one choice and one step at a time! You might not see visible signs of progress right away, but as long as you keep doing your best, you will make progress and you will be victorious! I'm rooting for you! Remember, you're worth your best effort!
Hugs,
Pixie
