Hi Krystal! Welcome! We have a pretty good team here, and there are lots of tips going around. I head up the two-week challenge threads you'll see under the discussions board. You can jump into any of them at anytime-they are always ongoing, and intended to build on each other. We started with food journalling to identify what habits/foods might need some adjustment. Now we're on the second challenge, which is to add clean protein in with each meal to allow for a more stable blood sugar. Some of us have also added fish oil into our daily regimen, as well as multi's to make sure we are getting all the vitamins and minerals needed. Even though it's ideal to get everything you need from food, we can't always do this right away because we may not be ready to totally scrap everything and be perfect over night. So, we do it in baby steps..."leaning" into health vs. trying to change too much too soon.
I see you've lost over 40 lbs! Congratulations! We would love to hear your experience and input too. Consider joining us on one of the challenge threads-we'd love to have you! TG

My name is Krystal and i am 27. I have a family of four and i have been changing my lifestyle for the better since november. I have gotten rid of most boxed foods in house and trying to be a fresh, clean family. Excited to learn new ideas and come up with different ideas to eat clean and teach my family how to be healthy the rest of their lives:)
You are beautiful. Everything about you, makes you a amazing treasured child of god. Don't let anyone make you feel like less.
