My older brother who just loves to torment me said that he was really proud of me yesterday-that I was working hard at educating myself on nutrition and fitness and that even though I was still a little nerd(his words)that he was inspired by me -he hadn't eaten his beloved McDonald's in six weeks, and he was eating more fruit and actual vegetables. He asked me what the big deal was about organic fruit(as he was swiping one of my bananas)and after I explained vowed to get some for himself. So that had me smiling a lot yesterday evening
Then today my father saw me making my weekly chili for my food prep(it is the PERFECT food in my opinion, veggies, beans, spices!)and as I was browning the soy crumbles he asked with a worried face was I cooking ground beef ? He was scared I would be sick because I hadn't eaten it in so long and he knew prisoners of war who got sick when they started eating meat again after eating a sparse diet. So even though he won't eat my food, he was worried about me which I took as positive support for my choices
I am a happy woman!!!
So has my diet and exercise helped me? I think so :

Don't ever let anyone tell you it's not possible--because it is. It won't be easy and it won't be quick--but it is POSSIBLE and DO-ABLE!!!
