The changes are amazing

Friday, February 15, 2013

I started on this weight loss journey thinking just to rid myself of excess fat. I didn't realize all the changes that would come with it. I started cooking more from scratch and found it really didn't take that much more time than a prepared dish from the grocery. And it tasted a thousand times better. I also didn't realize that once I started eating healthier it would kill most of the cravings for the unhealthy processed foods. In fact, the processed stuff tastes so unflavored, I would rather not eat it. Forget the Lay's, go for scratch made kale chips!

Today, I got another big surprise. I recently purchased and started using a FitBit One. That one little thing has pushed me to move better than anyone or anything ever has. For the last couple of weeks, I have been surpassing my FitBit goals and I have felt the difference. Today, however, I was not able to do all the walking and movement that I usually do. I MISS IT!! I have never been an athletic person. My hobbies and pastimes are more sedentary (reading, computer games etc.). I can feel the loss of the activeness. That is amazing to me. Thank goodness I can be active again!!

    Do you recommend the FitBit One? I'm thinking of getting one but wondering if it really is truly worth it.

    That is so nice isn't it?! Good for you that you are enjoying exercising. And preparing your own meals.
Three cheers.
