Wednesday Weigh-In: Changes

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

I've experienced many changes since I've started this diet. Some people can see; others they can't. The ones you can see are weight loss, positive attitude, and clearer skin. People can't see the energy I feel, the lack of fatigue, and the way I don't have that heavy, full stomach feeling. No one sees how the cramps during my period have gone from debilitating to so mild I barely notice the one that occurs. Only my husband has really noticed the fact that my PMDD has pretty much disappeared. Sure, I have bad days. I get in some bad moods, but they aren't part of mood swings because of the food. My relationship with food has changed. I eat until I am satisfied because that's all my body needs. I eat a variety of foods that keep me running, and I feel wonderful. It's made a huge difference in my life.

My dogs decided to run out the gate tonight, so I ran out the front door to track them down. In the Arizona heat. With no shoes on. My husband did the same. So holy eff our feet HURT! I did more running than he did, so my feet aren't as bad. But wowee wow wow. Something was totally up with my feet this afternoon too. I stepped in gum in the Walmart parking lot. Then I stepped on a rock when I went in the backyard to check the pool level. Finally I burned the eff out of them when running after my dogs. I'll try to learn a lesson from all this. Back to editing for now.

Eat your fruits and veggies, kids.

Hahaha! OMG!! What is with all the feet things today? But I love your attitude about learning from it. :)

And I love your paragraph about how much your life has improved with a healthy eating style. We benefit sooo much more than just weight loss when eating healthy. Thanks for being a great example to me daily. :)

No idea about the feet stuff, but seriously!! Perhaps I should have just been editing right after work. None of that would have happened! ;o)

Thanks, girl. I'm glad you're reading and enjoying. People say things about this diet, but they don't see it all. They just see me eating bananas and think I'll turn into a monkey. LOL!
