On being healthy

Monday, September 22, 2014

I am determined, today, to eat healthy. I would like to spend the rest of my days not fixated on looking thin and good, but on my state of health. I have been ignoring the fact that the older I get the more my body has deteriorated. High cholesterol, arthritis, thyroid disease and by now diabetes is starting to weigh me down. As well as added lbs over the years. So, now my newest craze is smoothies. It's really quite fun and I'm trying to make them with healthy fats and nutritious ingredients. I've also decided to not weigh myself every day anymore. I find that when I start concentrating on eating less and commit myself to loosing weight, that I start obsessing and weigh my self every day. Sometimes more! So starting today, I will wake up and say to myself. Today I will eat healthy food. Real food. Food that was once alive. I will have my smoothies everyday and eat till satisfied. I will walk everyday. I will limit my drinking. I will start to feel better soon.

    Thank you all for the encouragement. So far I'm not doing so good. Weighed myself a couple of times.. need to get rid of that darn bathroom scale. Woke up with a cold this morning. But then I think maybe my body is cleaning itself out of toxins.. so I will go with that and say this too could be a good thing. Keep positive :) My smoothies are a really great way to start the day.

    That is the way to do this. When I stopped thinking about how much thinner I wanted to be and started focusing on healthy food and activity in some way every day, things started clicking for me.

    A big round of applause for working on breaking the scale habit. You are more than a number.
