The other morning at 430 am, I spent about 45 minutes outlining and writing this new post on my IPAD. OOPS…I must have bumped something and lost it all. I will save often next time I use it to write. I wanted to get my thoughts down before they flew away. Any how, It was a great post. A bit long-winded, telling of my family history from child hood on. Oh well, it is lost. So sorry you didn’t get to read it, but it did fly away.
Today in writing this brief accolade, I am EXCITED! The South Beech is a diet. I decided a few years ago not to ever diet again as my metabolism has suffered from yo-yo dieting. I am not dieting, I am simply learning how to eat. At age 52, I have realized, I really don’t know how to eat. I learned a lot about food groups and balance through weight watchers at age 16 but that way of eating isn’t the best way for me. I got the South Beech diet book back from Jenn on the Lords Day, and all week I have followed the guidelines he gives. He is a cardiologist who designed this diet for his patients to get their blood chemistries in balance to prevent heart disease and diabetes. My blood chemistries are awful and balanced somewhat by pills. Yuk! I am so excited to learn how to eat. How to DAILY plan and prepare foods that will help me live a longer life.
Many of the things he shared are things I want ALL of my kids to learn. Not at age 52 after a PE, and stroke, but at age 20, 24, and 25. I hope that my learning how to eat, may inspire each of you to look at some bad habits that even your dear mother may have tought you. I know I never knew about portion control. I have served and fed your father HUGE, WAY TO MUCH portions for 27 years. I began to learn portion control for me after 5 surgery’s 4 years ago. I am so much happier feeling satisfied and comfortable in eating. I used to think you should be FULL if you ate right. I have not eaten correctly my whole life.
I am so thankful for what I am now learning at this great time in my life. I am looking forward to having healthy blood chemistries. Maybe I can take less medicine. I also look forward to be comfortable in my clothes, especially the smaller ones!
I will keep you posted on my progress as the months pass.
