The Choice to Live a Healthy Lifestyle

Healthy and abundant living begins with good food choices.

Healthy and abundant living begins with good food choices.

It has been years since my diet underwent a radical change.  It took months to adjust to eating a more healthy diet.  I changed it because of the many relatives that I witnessed dying prematurely because of not eating healthy food.  I am glad that I did.  It was not easy having to answer to so many people who believed I was doing the wrong thing, people who chose to eat whatever they liked, regardless of how it made them feel.

Initially, I lost weight, although, that was not my goal.  I felt more energetic.  I was eating organically grown food.  It was expensive, but I shopped at a healthfood store for several years.  I tried new recipes and finally acquired a taste for the vegetables, fruits and grains which I added to my diet, eliminating red meats.  I still crave vegetables, I am happy to say.  But, maintaining this lifestyle has been a choice for me, because I choose to live.  I feel I have a lot to share with others.  I would not be able to influence others unless I was exhibiting wise lifesyle choices.  For me, it has been spiritual and physical.  The two seemed to go hand in hand, which I thought was interesting.

So, it has been over twenty years that I have been eating this way.  Oh, yes, I made mistakes along the way, but I feel better overall.  I created this blog so that I can share what I have learned about weight loss.  Come back for the next posting in which I will discuss weight loss.
