CHANGING FOR THE BETTER

Updated 4/2016:
I've experienced some of the same things many other people here have. Overweight, decades of dieting, being successful, regaining...over and over...eventually achieving a higher and higher weight in the end, the exact opposite/outcome I was shooting for.

I've experienced some of the same things many other people here have. Overweight, decades of dieting, being successful, regaining...over and over...eventually achieving a higher and higher weight in the end, the exact opposite/outcome I was shooting for.

I ended up weighing more than I ever dreamed (223 lbs.) and was slowly destroying my health as well. In 2013 a diagnosis of severe hypertension among other health conditions motivated me. I decided I HAD to change - once and for all ... to live.

The past 3 years I have been trying to turn things around ... to eat healthy with a diet based in whole foods and plant based transitioning off of packaged/processed foods, etc. Consistent exercise, admittedly, has been harder for me to embrace.

I have had many successes with the above change in diet ... great improvement in many areas of my health reversing and/or eliminating most of my health issues. I lost a solid 28 lbs. I never plan to see again but after that I have lost/re-gained the same 10-15 lbs. for the past year. Mostly due to going 'off plan' ... over and over. And little to no exercise.

Now I find myself back saying 'this' HAS to now change - once and for all ... to live. I want to commit to eating what is healthy - no going 'off plan' - and TO EXERCISE. I'm retired and want to enjoy a better outcome/better future for what is left ... I do not want to give up/give in ... I want to thrive ... be fully alive ... once and for all!

The best way to get things done, is to simply begin.

Thank you for the cheery smiley! Brightened my day! I'm actually doing a challenge at my work right now, spring training, so I'm exercising more than before because I can't let my team down. Thanks for the encouragement!
