Hi, welcome to the team.
Growing your own veggies is a wonderful inspiration for healthy eating. And it saves you a lot of money. Since a hard freeze took out most of what was left of my veggies last week, I had to buy things I was growing at the store this week, and really relized how much I was saving. What a inspriation to buy that frezer I have been wanting. It could pay for itself in a couple of years just with the savings on veggies.
If you can't have a garden where you live, check to see if there is a community garden near you. I have stopped by one near me on their busy days and it is inspiring to talk with the people

my sister walks 15,000 steps a day at 63 years
old and has lost 105 pounds. she went from a size 24 to a size 10. all her health issues dropped off as the 105 pounds dropped off. took 16 months.

i gave up grain and sugary products and have lost 44 pounds at age 60. i went from a size 18 to a size 10 shorts and medium tops from a 1 or 2x. took 7 months.

use a salad plate as a dinner plate

use fruit for your sweet tooth cravings, an apple works great. helps with the chewing sensation.

fill your salad plate with half vegetables.

we are both still loosing weight until we reach our goal

Welcome to the team. Make sure that you get organic soil and not that garbage and not top soil either. Top soil is dead soil. Nothing will grow in it;. I know because that is what I was using to try to grow plants. They always ended up dead!!


If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

I have been around a while but never took the time to say hello. I love flower gardening and vegetable gardening. I hope to have an organic plot some day so I can grow my own healthy foods and can them, so I can have them all winter as well. I struggle with good food choices so if I have LOTS of them around it will be more convenient than the bad ones.
