50 Pounds

Saturday, June 01, 2013

Well, It's been a fun road getting here. I learned a lot. I had some ups and downs. Mostly ups! I love my new body. I am sure I will love it more another 50 pounds from now. I love my new lifestyle. I get out more, I am with family and friends more. I eat better. I have found new foods and discovered I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. I never knew a person can eat all the foods they enjoy and still become healthier. I love every meal I make and I get so excited when I cook for someone and they love it too. Just by changing my attitude towards food, becoming more active and applying the same reason and logic I use in everything else in life to my food choices, I have become a stronger healthier and happier person. My wife has even noticed the muscle growing in my shoulders and arms. My nephew has even pointed out that I don't look so "round" anymore. That makes me feel so good. I am so looking forward to reaching the next half of my goal. I want to thank my supporting wife for encouraging me to keep living my dreams, and I want to thank SparkPeople and it's community for supplying the reason and science that has changed my life.

    Great blog! I love hearing things like this: " I have found new foods and discovered I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. I never knew a person can eat all the foods they enjoy and still become healthier." THIS is such a break-out of the "diet" mindset, which is usually geared towards "restriction and denial" when in fact, adjusting to a healthier lifestyle can offer quite the opposite - "new" foods to love, and the ability to experience the full enjoyment of a varied diet of delicious foods. Congratulations!

    Congratulations. I give a lot of credit to Spark People, it is an awesome site. I still have not got too much into cooking new recipes, but that is a goal. Keep up the good work.
