All or Nothing

Sunday, November 04, 2012

It has been a long time since I have had an All or Nothing kind of attitude.

I learned years ago that a slip up means nothing in the big picture of health.

I learned not to feel guilty or have those automatic negative thoughts rule me.

I also learned long ago not to "diet" but change my way of eating and think of it all as a lifestyle, so you can't be upset by the ups and downs of life we all have.

It isn't an easy road for many to self discovery, but one that helps your entire life not just your "diet".

I wish everyone a wonderful day and a wonderful life!!! emoticon

Doing So Well

Monday, October 15, 2012

I have been eating Vegan for over 3 weeks now. I am doing it to help with my migraines. I am not eating typical processed food, it makes a huge difference!! I am going to be completely Vegan for 6 weeks then eat 90% plant based foods.
I read the book Eat To Live by Dr. Joel Fuhrman it is very eye opening.

Why I do this.

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

The challenge today at Spark Coach is to blog about why I want to be healthy and lose weight in the process.

For me it is to be around to see my grandson grow and perhaps see more grandchildren and even great grandchildren.

I want to be a smaller size so I can shop in the "normal" section, not the big women's section of a store.

And except for being fat I am healthy and have been even at my heaviest (390), but I can't depend on that forever. I had gastric bypass which is only a tool, a tool that isn't working any longer, so I have to do this like everyone else!!!

I can do this and will do this, it is my life!!!

Adding Gratitude

Friday, August 10, 2012

I am a firm believer in the power of gratitude. So when I am tired from work and really don't want to do my workout because my feet, legs and back are sore, I have to remember to give thanks.

I give thanks that I have a job, even if I do get tired, because so many don't have a job and I give thanks for being able to walk and have sore feet and legs as so many can't even walk.

There is always time to add gratitude in your day. Even a small thank you to a friend, coworker or even stranger can make that person's day. Hey even saying thanks Spark People for being here and helping me on my journey to health!!!! emoticon

  You are so right! What a blessing you have to have a "thankful" gratitude. Call it an attitude of gratitude! Once you truly begin to count how many blessings you have- - there is no room for stinkin' thinkin'.

Best of luck to you on your journey to a healthier and leaner you.
