Yesterday I made myself a meat free soup that was healthy and made my family meat one. We all enjoyed our veggie packed lunches. We shopped at Sam's Club and bought healthy items and had dinner at Panda Express. They opted for meat and I got fried rice and broccoli. I felt great afterwards.
I am thankful that my family is supporting me in my choices and likes to be healthy, too. I am grateful that I have a family to share my life with.
It's the holiday season, so now is the time to give yourself the gift of health. Every time you work out or skip junk food for a piece of fruit you are giving yourself a gift. let's all list our gifts, our victories, and what we are thankful for this season.
I started my weight loss journey December 2010 after a visit to my Doctor and found SparkPeople the first of February. My gift to myself is going a year in maintenance mode and keeping the 50 pounds I lost off. I am thankful for all the wonderful people I have met on this site and all the help I have received. I am looking forward to reaching my two year mark with SparkPeople and many more great memories.
I've found without question that the best way to lead others to a more plant-based diet is by example - to lead with your fork, not your mouth. ~Bernie Wilke
