  • Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. --Ralph Waldo Emerson

". . . it surprised me that what I saw as comfort food from my past left me feeling so uncomfortable." Now that's quotable. Personally, I keep telling myself that I need to make healthier choices in my diet. Then I look at my 94-year-old mom, who has high blood pressure but is otherwise obviously not suffering from having eaten whatever she wanted to (in moderation) all her life, and I talk myself out of doing anything about it. Because why challenge myself or have to retrain myself, or God forbid have to make the choices that will be hard? Your results are making an impression on me, I have to admit. Especially when I also have to admit that I often feel kind of "blech" and suspect that it's tied to the amount of carbs I consume. Good for you that you decided to eat better, stuck to your guns, and saw the positive results.


Well done you Brenda on making the necessary changes. My wellness eating road is covered - no make that - littered with too many carbs, pizza & frozen yoghurt. I can go for days eating the correct choices, then bam, a bad day and life just looks/tastes better with a slice of pizza or a dish of frozen yoghurt (see at least I gave up ice cream). I keep trying to make those correct food choices. As Yoda says there is no trying, there is only Doing. ;)
