No time like the present

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I hate the word diet. It is truly a four letter word in more ways than one. To me the word diet is the same as fail. In my case, epic fail. That being said, the word healthy eating, healthy lifestyle fits more into my overall health goal. A diet is something you start, then stop, then re-start. A healthy lifestyle incorporates all the ups and oops and downs and is a learning process that is constantly evolving. I am an emotional eater. I eat when I'm stressed, when I'm happy, sad, etc. My biggest problem is healthy choices. When I start stress eating and not exercising it is a free for all with the food choices. I have to start focusing on a way to minimize the stress to enable myself the ability to make wise choices. "Today is the first day of the rest of your life". Learn it, love it, live it.

Peace out!

    emoticon It's a healthy lifestyle for me also, definitely not a diet :-)

    I have never once thought I was on a diet. Now there are certain things in my diet and not in my diet, but I am not "on" a diet. Therefore it is nothing I can quit, nothing to give up on. It is a lifestyle and to quit and give up would be giving up on my and a healthier longer life. Just not an option.

So glad you have made the decision and joined Spark! It really made all the difference for me in my journey.

Thanks for sharing!


Smile and Enjoy the Rest of Your Day!

  I call it my Health Plan. It is never a diet with me either.
