I did make some awesome changes for myself last year and will stick with it all through 2011. I eat extremely healthy all the time and have been for a long time. It's a habit and a good one. I didn't do this for weight loss but to improve my overall health and I am feeling better every day. It was a little difficult during the whole Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday but I stayed with it! Yay me!

I do hope to add in a good workout routine now that I am feeling better but don't want to make it a resolution just in case I fail.
Good for you Christmas A Holic !!! Yay You Indeed !!!!! It is SO tough to eat healthfully through the Holidays !!! I slipped a little but seem to be back in the groove. Mine was primarily for weight loss though and so far so good by the grace of God. Still keeping off the 40+ pounds I lost and I want to keep it that way if possible !!!

I don't see any problems eating certain things that are not considered very healthy in moderation. It works for most people and doesn't interfere with how they feel each day. Unfortunately, I suffer really bad even if I slip up a little. I have had a very rough year of fatigue and getting sick easily. Blood test all come back normal but I still felt awful all the time. So I figured I will take matters into my own hands and study nutrition, eat the best food possible and I started healing! I already ate decent before with a little junk here and there and paid dearly for it. Ugh! My system is way too sensitive! I have also been tested and have dairy and wheat/gluten allergies. I gave that up along with caffeine and sugar. It is really easy to eat very well while I am at home but going out to eat I have to be very careful but it can be done just about anywhere I go. Instead of being miserable 24/7, I am started to do well and have a lot more energy and better days.

Prior to this I went vegetarian to correct stomach issues I had FOREVER! I was on numerous medications and they didn't help much. After a couple of months of being vegetarian my stomach issues went away and got off all the medication. The fatigue never went away though. It will be 2 years this February that I have been a vegetarian.

I am very jealous of those who don't have to be that careful with food and feel good all the time. My mom is one of them. She is almost 70 and feels great all the time. She does eat a little junk food here and there. I wish I could! Lol!

My way of eating is not for everyone but it has saved me! =)

It's ok to slip up a little Louanne! You will do just fine.

I am proud of you sweety, I am so glad you are doing this and feeling better. Although I am not eating as healthy as you are, I am following your example somewhat, I am gonna cut down on the junk this year, i haven't actually said this to you yet, but i will before you read this. I love you and want to live a long and healthy life with you.
