You've heard it before but it's worth repeating. Before starting a nutrition and exercise program, it's a good idea to get a complete physical. It will give you peace of mind when you start working hard and feeling the changes that will come with a new and improved YOU!
Starting a garden is a great way to get some exercise, get some healthy veggies to eat and in the end you'll have a sense of accomplishment that will motivate you to do more!! Learn to can or freeze the extras at the end of the season and you can enjoy your garden year round!
Through the 12-Step program of OA, I learned that I had a disease, and that will-power and self-esteem did not help me stop eating compulsively. Through working this program and defining my own meal plan, I have lost weight, but more important regained my emotional and spiritual balance.
