Craving Good Things Now..and the Good Life!


Sunday, April 21, 2013

I look forward to the healthy foods now....my body craves them. Can't get enough greens and raw veggies!!! I am 59 and never felt this good! When I was in my 20's I smoked and drank almost no water...just diet soda. Never ate in a healthy way. Quit smoking in 1997 and gained a lot of weight, so didn't even feel very good then, but now.....Heaven! I feel like I could run a foot race! Over the years there have been enough "exercise times" that I have a lot of muscle mass already (but you can't see my muscles for the fat, lol) so I was in ok cardio shape before I got here, but I would either eat in a semi-healthy manner or exercise....not both. Thanks, to you Sparks and to Sparkpeople for making this lifestyle change so easy!!

  Thanks a million, Beth!!! Your encouragement is greatly appreciated!!!!

So glad your body is telling you what it needs!! That is half of the battle!!! Every day is full of opportunities to feel better and have more energy!! Energy out, energy in!! Using energy makes energy!

Just at the beginning of my journey, have to force myself to hold it down, exercise-wise. If I overdo it now, then when the plateau comes, there will be no way for me to increase my activity. Feel like I could move my house!!!

I used to think that fat was what God put in food to make it good....now I know that food (the healthy food, that is) is packed with energy!!!


emoticon and let's emoticon until these changes are so much a part of our lives, that we couldn't go back even if we wanted to!!!

Cheers,
Judy
