What has happened to me??



Before the New Year arrived, I planned on making huge changes to my lifestyle.
And I have.
I am in my fourth week of this huge lifestyle change and have never felt better.
Honest.
I have lost 8 pounds.
15+ inches.
Can run 2 miles and not feel like I am dying after.
Really.
Crazy huh?

When I entered this "change of life", I prepared myself for alot of change.
What I didn't prepare myself for was the many new foods and textures I would be eating.
I have serious texture issues my friends.
So when I saw cottage cheese, oatmeal and smoothies in the recipes, I threw up a little in my mouth.
Ok, alot.
Ew.

I am now eating tofu {in smoothies}.
Soy nuts.
Wasa bread.
Veggie Ground Round.


And you know what?

I actually like it all.

Congrats. That is really impressive in only 4 weeks. I am trying to make a similar change but I am not doing so well but I am still trying. Great job!!

That's so cool. I encourage my kids to try foods they haven't liked every once in a while and also to try them in different recipes because things taste different as we get older. I didn't like avocados, onions, nuts, and vinaigrette dressing when I was younger. I do now!

Good for you, too! You are doing great!

Good for you for making such a great change. I have to admit that I have had a hard time doing the same for myself. I've never been able to get used to eating real brown rice. Gaggggg.

Congrats on the weight and inches loss! You are a much stronger woman than I - I could never bring myself to choke down that array of 'stuff'. ;)

Good for you! I've always wanted to make tofu, my mom makes it in a pasta sauce and it's pretty good. Glad to hear you like it and the other foods and are on the road to good health. Congrats and keep it up!
