A Journey Not a Race

I started my WL journey in September….a little wishy washy, not 100 percent motivated but I plodded on. And I’m glad I did

I can now walk twice a day up to an hour at a time where as before 10 minutes was a struggle. I can swim 30 minutes without stopping. I can take an hour long zumba class without being winded.

On the food front I was doing everything today’s society tells us is good for weight loss (low carb to everything in moderation) but it left me very hungry, grumpy, with severe gall bladder pain, always feeling swollen and bloated and my sugar levels were sky high.

Obviously it was not working for me.

And so after reading a few books and doing some research (life changing foods, liver health by medical medium, eat to live by Joel furhman and The starch solution) I challenged myself to go plant based this Summer (high carb lower in fat) for furthering my commitment to my health. It was a foreign concept at first but it’s working!

So far so good! A few weeks in and my body is responding. Sugar levels have decreased and inches melting. I eat a lot of beans, oats, veggies and fruit 😂💯 I have a long way to go and maybe you do too but this is not a race. Every body responds differently and it’s trial and error.

Sometimes we need a reminder of that. This is not a race. Our health and vitality has to mean more than that. Let’s enjoy the journey and learn lots while doing so!
