Aging doesn't have to mean total deterioration!

I joined Spark People on April 4, 2010. It worked for me right away, and by November I had lost the 30 pounds I came to lose. I held onto that really nicely until about July of 2011 and then a little crept back. Then a little more in December. Turns out that maintenance really is harder than losing for me.
In January of 2014 I realized my sugar consumption was again out of control and I was creeping back up. In February I began the To Quiet Inflammation Diet (terrible name) by Kathy ...

In January of 2014 I realized my sugar consumption was again out of control and I was creeping back up. In February I began the To Quiet Inflammation Diet (terrible name) by Kathy Abascal. It has changed my life. It's all about eating mostly fruits and vegetables -- eliminating all processed foods (thus no white flour, added sugar, chemicals and so on), and testing to see which foods cause trouble. Wheat causes trouble.
I feel better than I have felt better in a very, very long time. And I have a revived interest in cooking. Food tastes great!

"Direct yourself, consistently and persistently, toward the places, situations, experiences, people and results that you wish to have in your life.
You have more than enough energy, opportunities and ability, when focused in a specific direction, to achieve whatever you choose.
So choose to choose. Decide how your life will be, this hour, this day, this year, this century, and live the true richness of making it happen."
-- Ralph Marston

Hi. I just joined the Anti-Inflammatory Diet team too. Your TQI Diet sounds similar to what I am doing. I'll have to see if I can check it out online. Hope to get to know you as we travel our personal journeys.
