In the past year I have been on that on/off again diet we all do before the real deal. It's taken me a year to lose 20lbs but with out trying. What I have accomplished in this time is changing my eating habits. I never really was trying to eat perfectly healthy but some how little by little my taste buds and feelings towards the food I ate changed. Now it's not a chalenge for me to eat healthy, it is hard for me how ever to eat something unhealthy. It's really been like a step of maturity i've taken. Since i'm only 16, it's hard to eat healthy when all my friends want to go to McDanolds and eat brownie's all the time. But luckly I just don't care for that kind of stuff anymore. I stoped drinking soda because of a throat problem and with time I lost the liking of it. Some people think i'm weird cause I don't like soda, but I would'nt have it any other way!
It all started by the fact that i'm addicted to gossip magazines. When I would bye a gossip mag, I would also get one like Women's World or Fitness. And all the things I was learning about foods and the way our body reacts to it made me want to learn more. So everytime I would log in my homepage at msn I would click on the articles about health news. Now I always try to find books about health at the library and am always searching for the next thing to read about in the magazines, being articles or recipes. The knowledge is really what has gotten me to where I am today 20lbs down 35 to go, and great health!
