Refreshing My Life!

I'm pleased with the progress I've been making on changing life habits. Giving up things and doing new things is a challenge to me since I'm so used to doing things out of habit. I'm finally looking at changes as being in my best interest especially on an emotional level, not just the intellectual level. I have much less feelings of deprivation, and my new changes are turning into habits. Now they are things I want and need, not just hoped for. I'm also really embracing the concepts of one step ...
I'm pleased with the progress I've been making on changing life habits. Giving up things and doing new things is a challenge to me since I'm so used to doing things out of habit. I'm finally looking at changes as being in my best interest especially on an emotional level, not just the intellectual level. I have much less feelings of deprivation, and my new changes are turning into habits. Now they are things I want and need, not just hoped for. I'm also really embracing the concepts of one step built on another, baby steps are progress, and no time limit- only progress. I've decided mistakes are made only to educate me and are only a sidestep, not a change in direction. The more I learn about health the easier it is to make choices.

Thanks for visiting my blog. In those 2 days I gained 10 pounds, a number I will not long forget, in the last 4 days I have managed without exercise to lose 4 of those pounds by eating very healthy and controling calories to less than 1500calories per day.

Thank you for your advice on my blog "Fresh Start". Everything you said is true. I think starches are my downfall. I just love breads, crackers etc. I do well actually until late afternoon. Then I grab an apple, pear, almonds, or something which does not satisfy, then go for the starch. I love apples! It's just that 4 o'clock slump. I need an entire meal at that time to get me going again! Or maybe a nap - which never happens! emoticon

hi! I just saw your question about choosing a running shoe. here is a very good explanation. the thing that helped me the most is the "wet" test. its easy to do and figure out.
