In October 2010, I read "Skinny Bitch," and it changed my life. It literally changed my thinking about food. As a result of the book, I started cutting one bad habit out a week. Soon, I'd given up meat (except seafood and eggs), caffeine, dairy and a lot of processed crap. I tried to follow the "Eat to Live" phylosiphy, and it really agreed with me. I'm a total believer in that way of life. In following this lifestyle, I'm at my best. My mind is more clear, and I have an appreciation for my body (well, as much as I can....it's always going to be a struggle).
And here I am, just a few days ago....believe it or not, this was the re-take. The first one, I was leaning back on Brian and you could see all of my ugly fucking chins. Clearly my weight is up again. It's totally on me...not enough exercise....days of eating shit and drinking soda...and then being good for one or two days. Working on the calendar the past few days, really smacked me upside the head. I saw my weight in all of these areas and in between. It's disgusting... I recently lent a new friend my "Skinny Bitch" book, and she loved it. She's changing her way of eating, and the way she feeds her family because of it. Her enthusiasm, reminds me of when I first started. I'm excited to help her along this journey, but I'm even more excited to rediscover why I love this lifestyle so much. I'm so inspired that she took it upon herself to try some of the recipes I've got on here. I'll be adding more... For my sake, her sake, and hopefully your sake. Look back at your pictures. Find where you want to be, and make it your focus. Let's do this together. Let's make 2012 our healthiest year ever.
P.S. If you want me to post your goal photo, or where you want to start getting toward, I'd be happy to. Just send me a pic.
