This Sparked Me!

Keep in mind a great way to eat and exercise that you can see yourself doing 20 years from now. This frame of thinking helps us move away from a "dieting mentality" and towards a "lifestyle change mentality", which will keep your results lasting for the more rinsing and repeating!

    I must admit, 20 years sound like a distant point in the future even though I understand the reason for saying so. In our age of instant gratification, it seems a long commitment.

A worthwhile one, all the same. I'll try my best not to focus too much on what I'm missing in sweets/excess/laziness, but rather on what I'm 'buying' (time) for me to keep breating/smelling/smiling and enjoying.

Thanks for making me think.

    'Diet' is almost a Dirty Word in my house. But I can eat healthy, and I can make choices that are good for me related to food. That is VERY empowering, and that is what I wish I could share with everyone I meet.

    Then I will be 87. Wonder if I will make it. You make a good point.
