I achieved good health, happiness and vitality.
I haven't weighed myself yet this week, but let me tell you I feel amazing.
In the past few days I've had to stop wearing my rings because they're too big for my fingers. And my boots that were hard to zip over my feet? They're now sliding up and down when I walk.
In the past year, I've taken all the necessary steps I needed to take to better my health. I took my time doing it, because I knew it wasn't going to be easy.
Last July, I quit smoking cigarettes cold turkey. I knew I had to get off my asthma medications in order to lose weight and I had to quit smoking in order to start exercising again. I ended up gaining weight in the short term, but I didn't let it discourage me.
A few months later, when I was ready, I quit eating meat for ethical reasons. I also started going to the gym on a regular basis... Still didn't see any results. Got a little discouraged.
Last month, I quit my last addiction: Diet soda. No more aspartame for me! I knew it was making me gain weight and retain water. Not to mention the neurological effects it was having on me, and blocking my path to good health. It had to go.
Started using fit day.
Annnd last week I was finally able to stop taking my last asthma medication. I also started using The Gabriel Method.
The weight is finally coming off, and I can feel it.
It's been a long journey. A hard one full of ups and downs. Slow and uncertain at times. But I did it. I achieved good health, happiness and vitality, and my weight is following close behind.
