After seeing the documentary "Cowspriacy" I'm thinking about trying to be a vegetarian. I've never likes fish or red meat much, but do eat chicken and turkey. I thought maybe some people on spark are healthy eaters and vegetarian. So, please give me some ideas and pointers if ya can. Thanks!!!

    My advice is to start slowly. I still eat chicken and turkey and fish. I haven't had any kind of "meat" in 25 years. Do what feels best for you. I just decided to not eat mammals any more. Works for me. Some days I don't eat any animal protein and sometimes I have chicken. Don't just jump in and do it all at once because it will be overwhelming. Good luck!

    I do not like to eat a lot of meat but my husband does and he tells me that when I add sauces to the meals that helps him not miss the meat as much. He is a meat and potato guy and when I gravy-like dishes to the menu I think it reminds him of the comfort food. Mushrooms will give a "meaty"feel to a dish.

For me, I find added more beans and lentils helps me not miss the meat at all. Check out Dr John McDougall, Joel Furhman, Engine 2 Diet websites to get meal ideas.

I just wanted to say HI to my spark friends. I'm a bad friend for being gone so long. But, I am back and ready to lose the pounds and more importantly - the inches. I have big plans! I'm grateful to be able to use Sparkpeople and ready to get this party started! LOL!

And, wouldn't it be nice if labels looked like this:

That's how I feel these days. Lost and this "whatever" state of mind. It's just food. I starve or over eat the evil foods. So sick of the constant war and battle with myself. Sick of the heartbreak in life that makes me turn to emotional eating. Girl breaks my heart (yes, a girl), friends break my heart, job, Mom and the list goes on. I'm annoyed that I'm annoyed by these people who hurt me. Ready to give up. I won't. But, I'm ready. Just had to write this publicly for accountability. The end. Tomorrow is a new day. Not different or better...just new.

    St Balderick's foundation is amazing! I will see what I can do. I was introduced through the family of another fallen angel. I was thinking of organizing a 5k and fun run through them.

Watch 'Hungry for Change'. It'll CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

I watched a documentary last week called Hungry for Change, my son was baptized yesterday and many other things have led me to this feeling inside of healing, growth and peace that I've never felt before.

When I found this movie on Netflix on my phone late one night while lying in bed not being able to sleep I think it was answered prayer. A friend of mine is working alone in Louisiana and asked me if there were any good movies to watch on Netflix. I logged in and accidentally found Hungry for Change in the newly available section. I have watched many food documentaries over the last few years, so I thought Iíd try it. Let me tell you - THIS movie changed me!!!! It helped me trigger that place inside of me that reads labels again and knows the difference of right and wrong when I'm putting products into my grocery cart. Your body image and healthy self really does begin with SELF LOVE. I highly recommend watching this movie!!!! It's VERY informative and gets you in the gut and it wonít leave your soul or brain. It sounds extreme, but Iím dead serious! I watched it in sections, because life is so busy, but I will watch it again and again. This movie helps to understand what is really in the food when you read the labels, why it's there and that we have to resist what we know isn't right, so put down the bad stuff (or donít order it) and re-train your brain and body that you donít want the poisons inside of you anymore! We need nutrients and good fuel for these machines we call our bodies.

If you watch it - please let me know what you think. I like to discuss ideas and opinions with other people.

emoticon Remember to love yourself. Affirm your love for yourself and believe in it and visualize the REAL YOU, the healthy you in order to make the change happen!!! emoticon

I love yíall!!!! emoticon

Hereís the link to the site. Watch it on Netflix or try and rent it somewhere or buy it! emoticon

    This documentary also really changed my life too, I watched it about 8-10 weeks ago and since then have made drastic changes to my diet and am working out more and am down 19lbs!

There is a book as well, really all the same info, but I have read the book a couple of times too!
