De Ja Vu Epiphany

Friday, July 15, 2011

Yes I know I have had this epiphany before -- many times. At almost 41 it is something I have known my whole life. Yet even I -- in a pinch -- lose sight of reality. This time is no different. The pinch is from my clothes as they become tighter because I have gained back some of the 40 pounds I fought so hard to lose. I panicked, and decided to try a fad diet -- the 17-day diet. Seventeen days of virtually nothing but protein. Uuuggghh.

I know now -- again -- with assurance, that God is right when he says that bread is the staff of life. I also know that there must be a disease of protein-induced psychosis. Because I felt psychotic. I have said this before, but never so publicly "never again." I know that the only way to be truly healthy is to eat a balanced diet, get enough exercise, sleep, and enjoy myself in healthy ways.

    I have done "fad" diets for as long as I can remember to lose 5lbs here, 10lbs there for whatever event happened to be coming up. They never last and are horrible for your health. I recently joined SP on July 1st and am trying to train myself to live a more healthy lifestyle rather than be on a "DIET", it is a four letter word after all. This site/community is the most helpful and supportive healthy living motivation I have ever found. Glad you're here and good luck with your journey, have a great weekend :)
