Maintaining a new lifestyle

I have made changes in how I think and feel about food, and
I have created new habits of eating and exercising.

I am learning to be consistent with those changes - and not lapse back into old ways.

This SP community is helping me to succeed.
My SP friends here inspire me and help to keep me motivated.

I began here in January 2010 as PennyAn45, and I will most likely continue for a long time to come.

I'm so glad about the reconciliation, and that it's never too late.

I have a lot of G.I. problems, such as GERD, IBS, etc. so I have difficulty with foods that most people love like too much salt, tomatoes, garlic, and raw onions. I am supposed to avoid gluten and I have hypoglycemia so I have to avoid sugar and too many carbs. I am picky too and there are several foods I won't eat, most of them aren't healthy. I'm always relieved when I eat somewhere that has fresh fruit and veggies that are simply prepared, meat that isn't breaded and fried in oil. It is actually easy to have food that fits my needs but you would be surprised at how often I go to functions where they offer nothing that is on my diet. My husband even notices and he will worry as he knows it can be a huge problem for me. I usually just pretend to eat, don't consume much, and hope people don't notice. A lot of young people do not eat healthy.

I think you and I have a grip on what is best for us and how to accomplish it. We are fortunate in that we don't have to keep searching for answers. We just need to follow the plan.

Thanks for your comment on my page and on my blog !!
Actually, all the international Holiday Inn people did was to apply pressure on the local Holiday Inn hotel to give us the money back that we had already paid !
The Holiday Inn had our money for 14 nights and had previously refused to give it back ! Not sure what made them decide it was right to give a refund. Anyway, the money was safely returned to our credit card account. Yeah !!!
