Hi! Long time since I've been here, but hopefully I will be here more often. I began this journey a while back, but I haven't updated my progress in a long time. I have lost 28 pounds since May 2013, but still have a lot to go. I am following Wheat Belly way of eating and have gone off diet drinks since August. I am loving the changes I see and can't wait to see what changes are in store. I feel better than I did with my previous way of eating. I don't have the miserable bloating I always had before I came off wheat and other grains and my diet drinks. I have more energy than I've had in many many years. I give my daughter credit for encouraging me to get on this new health plan. I saw such a difference in her. She is following the Paleo way of eating and is off wheat, too. There is still so much to learn about foods I can eat and new recipes, but I am on the way to becoming a new me!
1. Get healthy.
2. Exercise 20 minutes three to four times a week.
3. Get stronger.
4. Change my attitude toward food.
5. Eat and exercise to live.
6. Lose excess weight.
7. Live longer.
1. Drink at least 8 8 oz. glasses of water per day.
2. Cut carbohydrates to a minimum.
3. Exercise using Wii Fit Plus and walking and track it on Spark.
4.Track what I eat on Spark.
5. Not rely on scale readings, but on how I feel and look.
6. Love myself enough to work to reach my goals.
7. Read Bible daily for strength.
I am from Alabama.
I'm 55 years old. I have been married for 35 years. I have two beautiful children, a great son-in-law, and a precious grandson. I also have a beautiful daughter-in-law. I am a Christian and will lean on God to help me on my journey. Phil. 4:13 says "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

Teresa: I did stop by your homepage and you look wonderful and happy, Your grandson has really grown, but he still has that sweet little smile. I'm so glad your new diet is working for you, I too have totally stopped drinking any kind of soda, diet or anything else, I drink 7 pints of water a day and sometimes decaf tea or coffee plain. It has made me feel a lot better, and I don't eat much wheat either, but haven't completely given it up yet. Its so good to see you back to sparking, Thank you SOoooooooo much for sharing your journey with us. My son has been on this Paleo diet, I really haven't checked it out. Guess I better do that.

Today is not a holiday
It isn't even your birthday
But I still thought I'd like to send
A special message to my friend
You make me laugh and make me smile
You ease my troubles for a while
When clouds are thick and skies are gray
You put some sunshine in my day
You're really thoughtful sweet and kind
A friend like you is hard to find
I know I've told you once or twice
That I think you are very nice
But someone who's as great as you
Should be told more often than I do
And so I send these words with love
Why did I send them?.....just because
You have brought so much joy into my life....
I am Blessed to call you friend!

The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling
deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments,
propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts
and start searching for different ways or truer answers.
