I am taking the fasting route to give my gut a break and my mind a break away from food. On day 3 and feeling great, I have been drinking my water, having a coffee with coconut oil which is why i think I am feeling better at this point. I also have some lemon water to help with cleansing. I have come to a lot of realizations on this journey and one that I have tried to ignore is leaving dairy alone. I am not sure about nuts, since I was overdoing with both these last few months. So I will remove most of the dairy and either lower the nuts or eliminate them also. Since I have been flirting with having so much in my diet, my runny nose and eyes have returned. Not what I want to deal with since I know I can do without both symptoms when I watch what I add to my meals. Having to be careful and keep my foods simple seems to be the path I need to go. Getting completely away from the reward mentality with food. I have lived a lifetime with food as my ever present companion. Having vacation memories swirl around where we ate and if the food was good. So much of my life wasted by eating and being overweight. It is time to work for better. I have been adding more walking, even dancing some and I have pulled out my camera, dusted it off and using it again. Baby steps in the right direction, moving through the maze of choices I have made. Getting healthy is the game changer.

    Sharing good eating memories is not bad. You will start sharing good eating memories along with any other activities you like to do. I love walking, swimming and reading for example.
