"Always bear in mind that your own resolution to success is more important than any other one thing." – AbrahamLincoln
I went on to read "Rich Food, Poor Food" (the entire book, not just the information on what and what not to buy), I watched "Food Matters" and "Hungry for Change" (available streaming on Netflix), and I listen to Jonathan and Carrie's pod-casts everyday, and on Facebook I look for (and "Like") other sites that ratify my choice (e.g. I "Liked" Metabolic Effect, EAT SANE, Food Renegade, among others) . This has helped me get past the emotional (and addictive) cravings I have for inSANE foods. I am now 7 weeks into my life change and I feel free! This is what it must feel like to be a recovering/recovered addict - JOYOUS and IN CONTROL!
Clothing is no longer "tight" and some of the bigger body lumps-n-bumps have all but gone away. I am on a mission!!! I look for new recipes to try (not all of which work out but most have been successful and YUMMY) and "pin" them. Some of the "keepers" are Almond Parmesan Squash, Sour Cream and Chive Biscuits, and Cinnamon Raisin "Rice" Pudding.
I was also recently given a cookbook called "The Food Lovers - Make it Paleo," which has a GORGEOUS picture for EVERY recipe - YAY!
So am I motivated to keep going? YES!... there is no turning back now - this is my life AND I LOVE IT!!
