Success Secret: Learn to love the feeling of healthy

Thursday, November 14, 2013

There are two feelings that I have loved for many years:
1. The feeling of sweets in my mouth, and that satiated full feeling after a tasty meal.
2. the peaceful feeling that I have after a good run, or when I am on top of a beautiful mountain.
I have taught myself to pass up #1 whenever possible. I save that satiated feeling for special times with friends and family. Even then, I hold myself in check. I know that overeating is a weakness of mine. On the other hand, I enjoy #2 whenever possible.
I am teaching myself that that fabulous feeling of health is the BEST feeling in the world!

    For this gal good health is the #2 best feeling going.

#1 is knowing that I am loved by my precious Creator God & my cherished MrV & our treasured offspring.

God bless!

    AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME! You smile I the picture says it ALL! It's all about getting that "feeling" from something that we enjoy . . . not always food (yes, as you say, save that for special times!)

BTW, just have to tell you, you look gorgeous in the picture. I LOVE the coat. Just adorable.

    I can't believe how much better I feel after I changed my diet for the better and started getting much more exercise. I have more energy, feel less fatigued, get less colds and sleep more soundly. I used to get so winded just going up a flight of stairs and my knees, damaged by ski accidents many years ago hurt all the time. Not any more. I just wish that I had realized that I needed to do it sooner and maintain it!! But then I would not have met all these fabulous people on this site. So there really is a reason for everything and is a win-win for me!!

I love the picture!! You look health and happy and just downright beautiful!!! emoticon
