Exercise has been hit and miss and now my treadmill is broken. Tomorrow I see my doctor for my 3 month blood work check up. He was pleased with my results in May and I have lost some weight since then.
RS: Please tell us more about what you are doing. Your success is fantastic.
Libby: I just got tired of getting more and more unhealthy, which increased my weight. I basically only eat vegetables, fruit, and occasionally beans. My diet is 90% raw. This was difficult at first. I have lost 62 pounds in 3 1/2 months. It seems so overwhelming to me to think how much I have lost and that I still have more to go. I am working on changing my thoughts and feelings along with healthy food choices. It is a life long change that I have made. I am approaching my half way point. Once I reach it, I will share my whole story and progress pictures. I am so grateful for people like you that lend me support. By the way, great job on the weight loss and blood tests.
Valkyrie: Hi and nice to meet you. I agree that unhealthy food seems to be cheaper than healthy choices. I know our grocery bill has almost doubled, since fresh fruits and vegetables are the main source of protein in our household now. Good luck!
Mern: Where are you? I miss you!
Terri: Nice to meet you. The wedding picture is beautiful. You both look so happy. Congrats and good luck!
Kocialapcia: Good luck with your goals and adding more fruits and veggies. Once it is a habit, it's easier to keep up with that type of food choices.
