I still get so amazed by what a difference making small changes can do. Two days ago, I was concerned about sleeping and wondering if I would ever be able to get this weight back off since being put into menopause. I'm not gonna lie, I was scared! Two days later, I am sleeping like a baby and have lost 5lbs!
What did I do? I changed up my diet. I quit drinking caffeine and replaced it with nothing but water. I'm eating lots of protein and raw veggies and fruits. I continue to get on the treadmill a couple of times a day for about 10 minutes at a really slow speed. My body has responded. It likes what I am doing. It is thanking me for not intoxicating it with sugar, caffeine and fat. I am sleeping, I am no longer dieing of heat stroke at night, I have more energy and feel like I am on the home stretch of recovering. I also have no need to call the Dr. at this time and ask for a prescription for my symptoms.
It just goes to prove that you do not have to "diet" or go to extremes to make your body respond. There is no magical formula or pill. It just wants a little TLC. After all it does for you, is it too much for it to ask you to hydrate it with water and feed it with real nourishing foods? Stop reaching for the next quick fix and slow down. Let your body process the goodness you are giving it and it will reward you.
