The goal of my blog is to provide information, inspiration and support to anyone pursuing a healthy lifestyle. My hope is that by sharing my knowledge and experiences of developing healthy habits in an unhealthy country, you will feel empowered and encouraged. Let’s win together!
If you keep losing weight, you DIE!
Throughout my life, I tried every major marketed diet program and noticed they all have one thing in common – success is measured by weight loss. When I was only rewarded for losing weight, I began developing habits for losing weight (not eating the day before weigh in, binging after. Wearing a lot of clothes one week and then a bathing suit the next, etc.). Since these habits weren’t easily sustainable, I usually gained the weight back. Then one day, I realized that if I ever DID master this habit of losing weight – and never stopped losing weight – I would die. Clearly, weight loss in and of itself is not a sustainable habit!
Knowledge is POWER and POWER is Habit!
This realization started a journey to discover more about the habits of healthy living and habits in general. Over the last 3 years, I learned amazing facts about not only our bodies and how they work, but also about the impact our culture, trends and environment have played in creating a very unhealthy country. I’m happy to say that today, I have developed a solid foundation of healthy habits (and I’m continuing to build on that ever day), and in the process have lost a few clothing sizes. I have also learned a TON of facts about bodies, metabolism, psyche, history and other tidbits that I cannot wait to share with you.
You are UNIQUE!
The most important thing I learned is that in order for a habit to be sustainable, it must work for you and no two of you are alike. This means that while the concepts of creating the healthy habits may be somewhat universal, the applications will vary for everyone. The good news is, we do live in a country of choices, and you can continue to try until you find what works for you! Welcome to my page – I’m so happy to be a part of your journey!!
