Default Changes are good for me!!

Since January, I have made 3 major changes in my life to increase my health

- going gluten-free - I was diagnosed celiac and found I had much more energy eating gluten-free.

- going sugar-free - I am also diabetic and stopped eating sweets and added sugars and I now have even more energy. I still eat fruit, I don't consider than a harmful sugar.

- going to the gym - Guess what??? Even MORE energy. I used to have a pity party when I had to go to the gym. Now I just tell myself I gotta "take care of business". My health is my business.

I've lost 6 pounds in the last month. I view that as a bonus of these changes and as proof that these changes are good for my health.

Well good for you! If those changes aren't a big giant leap in the right direction, I don't know what is.

And the best part of it, is of course, you are reaping the wonderful benefits from it.

And I simply adore your signature, it's "it" in a nutshell.
