Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, May 06, 2012

Thank you for reading my blog. I also appreciate it if you were among those that checked off, I Like, because the Blog did hit among Popular Blog Post. It was an important message that just needed to be discussed. I am happy a lot of people will now become aware of the dangers of this diet.

Just so you know for the future how important it is to click on the " I Like This Blog"

If a particular blog of someone really touches you or speaks to you, then consider clicking "I Like This Blog." By doing this other people who may never even know that person blogs on Spark People may never get to read that blog. If you feel that the person wrote a great motivational blog and it may possibly help others that are struggling, then consider clicking "I like This Blog."

Others in Sparkleland can only benefit from reading that blog if they know it exists. Most people subscribe to their favorite blogger but there are so many others out there with different views. If you think it is a great blog you have just read, then please check it so that others have the opportunity to also read it and walk away with some info that could also help them on their own personal journey here on Spark People. After all isnt that one of the best things about Spark People, sharing. I have learned so much on Spark People from people sharing their knowledge, sharing about how they succeeded on their journey, sharing tips, sharing recipes, and just plain motivating other people.

Sidenote:
A lot of people because of my 80/10/10 blog have visited my Spark Page and have checked out my progress and my journey here on Spark People. Thank you for that because the whole idea behind Spark People is to come together as one big community and help each other better themselves, to be successful in their journey to becoming healthier.

Even though I follow a Raw Food Diet (because that works for me and my Diabetes); I don't push it on others. I do blog about it often to try to get more people to add Raw foods to their current diet. Heck, adding a nice dinner salad and/or a piece raw fruit as a snack will do your body good. Making a small adjustment and doing something that little, really helps your body in so many ways and sharing that little tidbit makes me happy.

I do make sure I get enough protein in raw nuts, raw seeds, and sea vegetables and heart healthy fats. In fact all fruits and veggies have protein in them, some are trace amounts because let's face it people eat bigger portions of meat. Pound for pound most greens have more protein than meat.


Sooooooooooooooooo Here is to a healthy lifestyle and weight loss journey on what ever path you choose to follow. Again emoticondo your homework and research yourself to make sure it is a healthy one.


HUGS! Yvonne emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It's like Coach Nancy is so fond of saying - we are all, each, an experiment of one. What works for one person may or may not work for another. Or, it may work to some extent, but not to the extent it will for another. The best thing about a community of this size (no pun intended), is the bounty of ideas. You can take whatever works for you and leave the rest. Thanks for adding to that wealth!

  Thank you. It is obvious that you respect your fellow SP members and are willing to let them live as they wish without judging. I like your approach -- you are a very motivating person.

Take care,

    It is very refreshing for someone like you who is pretty "into" a particular food system like raw foods to be balanced and open and sane about everyone's choices. I had never heard of that extreme diet you blogged about and it was a good warning. Thanks for your community participation - you add a lot to Spark People for all of us. Spark ON!

    Thank you for thinking to remind us to remember our freggies. I sure try to, but I do lean more on the fruit. I do love our asparagus right from our garden and then steamed. Mmmmm! Thanks again! emoticon

    Finally someone speaking up for the proteins in fruits, vegetables, nuts, tofu,
brown rice. I just became vegan and I have never eaten better. People have a lot of misconceptions about food, particularly protein. I think if people stopped to think that the largest and most powerful animals are vegetarians, perhaps they would reconsider. Or what cows actually eat to become juicy steaks and hamburgers.
Keep speaking up and I will keep backing you up. Great blog.

    Thanks for the reminder and what if your thank you blog hits the popular blog too from so many I liked this where hit. LOL

Anyway I think you came on top with all this and your concern and care for others really shined.

Now we can rest assure or can we? LOL

Have a great day!
