Uncovering a Healthy Lifestyle: Post 2

Your friendly neighborhood archaeologist here.
Since I started Sparkpeople on October 8th, I'm down 3.5 lbs! I was floored!
I've also noticed that not only am I staying away from unhealthy choices more in general, but that when I do eat less healthy things, I feel it pretty quickly (often during the following day too). That in it of itself is something of a neat revelation.
My body and I are communicating better than ever. In my profession, that is crucial! I have always been able to read the signals it sends if I am starting to get sick or if I have pushed a muscle group too far. The fact that it's telling me now about what type of fuel it does and does not take is so exciting! Maybe it was telling me all along, but I couldn't/ wouldn't hear it.
As for the archaeology, I was working in a trench originally dug in the 17-teens. This is a fragment of what was likely a chamber pot. It is made out of a German stoneware called Westerwald. It dates to sometime right after around 1710.
