There are commercials airing here in Canada that state that the average Canadian will be sick for the last 10 years of their life.
I want to enjoy ALL of my life! My weight matters but the most important thing I want is to be healthy!! I also want my kids to learn a better example from my husband and myself -- I want them to have a long, happy, healthy life too!

I want to look good and feel good! I look at people every day who are in terrible health, often due to self negligence and I will not ever be one of those people. No excuses!

Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.

VCOOTS61: There are good reasons to avoid taking statins, such as risk of memory problems and muscle weakness. If you are reluctant to take them, see another doctor for a second opinion. There is substantial medical evidence against statins. (I teach at a medical school, and while I don't specialize in this area, I have looked into it because my father was thinking of taking them.)

Honestly because I can't imagine eating any other way. We're so lucky to have such a diversity of foods in this country. I can cook with authentic ingredients from India, Thailand, or any other country, and often it's just as easy as using convenience foods. I have easily 20 types of legumes in my pantry, and 60 herbs and spices. Since I started making my own chicken broth, I can even use the recipes that call for chicken broth.

(Save the bones from every chicken that we eat. Yes, off people's plates. And put them in a quart size ziploc in the freezer. When the ziploc gets full, put in crockpot with water and turn on low overnight. Strain in the morning and freeze.)

And exercise feels good.

For all those same reasons. I have a blood test on May 1st and if my cholesterol comes back high again, I have to go on meds and I do NOT want to do this unless I have to. I have been eating very healthy (low cholesterol of course) drinking my water and exercising. So, I've been following the rules to lower my cholesterol. Fingers crossed!

ps. I'm 51 years old and I'm not ready to start taking pills like several members of my family do. But, if I must, then I must.

Time to take care of ME!

You absolutely positively can lose weight and reach your goals by making small changes to live a healthier life and STICKING TO THEM!
If you don't believe me- go to the success stories section and read a few of them every day- there are literally THOUSANDS of them over there!

I'm new here:) Part of my weight problem is I'm an all or nothing person. I dive in to diets and exercise with the thought that if I don't work out every single day or eat only the healthiest of foods, I've failed. Then I quit trying at all until I can't stand myself any longer. How do you tell yourself it's okay to start by changing a few bad eating habits or that it's okay to work out a few days a week until you build up?? I carry guilt when I fail. I carry guilt when I don't try hard enough. I carry guilt even when I'm successful, but always feel it's not enough. I need support. This is hard for me because I'm shy and even posting this is making me feel so vulnerable. Anyone out there feel like me? Anyone need motivation to keep on, like me?
