The title of this entry is a bit deceptive. I hit an all time HIGH in my weight in December 2015. :( I hit an all time LOW in my mood and health and I was feeling absolutely miserable. SO, at the beginning of January, my husband and I both went on a mission to get healthy. We cut out junk food, late night snacking and drinking pop/soda. AND THEN, the biggest change ever happened. On January 25, 2016, I started a nutrition class hosted by a friend called RESTART. If you haven't heard of this program, I highly recommend it!
A friend of our's is a certified NTP and hosts this class in our area. Little did I really know what I was getting us involved in! The course includes a three-week sugar detox, and when I say sugar detox, I don't just mean sugar. It is EVERYTHING sweet, and very limited.

I'm happy to say that it has now been 7 weeks. During the first three weeks of official detox I lost 13 lbs! And since the beginning of the year I have lost 17. It has been slow and steady most of the way, but I am feeling amazing by just making better food choices. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this program as a way to re-train your tastebuds, cut cravings COMPLETELY and start your path to a healthier view of food and nutrition, etc.

I haven't come to SP at all in these past months. I think I have avoided it because it makes me feel as if I'm just not doing enough to see that SO many are working out so much more than me, etc. I have made a huge change and giant strides in my nutrition habits. I may not be running yet (which I do aspire to do someday) but I am already able to do more. It takes time and I know I'm headed in the right direction.

Just wanted to check in. While this post started talking about my all-time HIGH in December, I am telling you that I am FEELING well and energy is at an all-time HIGH (at least for all of my SP years). Here's to many more positive changes to come.

    Thank you for all the kind words! I've watched my progress (and LACK of progress) over the years here on SP and have gotten pretty fed up with myself. ON to bigger (SMALLER!) and better things! Thank you! emoticon

    "Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life."
