CHANGE YOUR LIFE
date: March 18, 2014
Weight at start: 263.8
Weight today: 246.8
I don't know what motivates you, everyone is different. what motivates me is real. Things, people and actions that are sincere and truthful. I am like you and everyone else in that I am hit with daily loose weight fast strategies and products and the fact remains, most do not work. If any of them do they certainly have limited results. This is almost always because they are not based in reality.
An electronic vibrating belt is not going to change your life. A drink mix that you shake up and consume every day, even in various flavours is not going to motivate you or change your life. The reason why is because it is made up of ingredients that are so processed that what you get is so much less than you should be getting. The drink ail loose it's ouster in no time at all. A magic pill that when taken before every meal will decrease your appetite and make you want less food will only get stuck in your throat and in no time you will tire of the monster sized thing, even before you finish one full bottle of it.
Most people I know who are on diet programs almost invariably still walk around with their large double double (even if they use sweeteners) to keep themselves alert and awake all day.
The fact is that diet programs do more than loose a little weight. They usually deplete you of energy and the will to continue.
I'm NOT on a diet.
My goal is not to loose weight. No. My goal is to become healthy and in great shape.
So I am now a full fledge and consistent juicer. I admit it. I thank God that I am blessed with a wonderful wife who, with nursing as her qualification, is my strongest advocate and motivator. I know she is selfless in her desire to see to it that I do well. So she has made well certain that I understand the importance of electrolytes, proteins, and utilizing the various colours of the food I consume. Thank you Tess for keeping me safe!
Today I hoped up on the scale and I am very proud to say I have lost 17.8 pounds in just 23 days. No gym work out of any kind, just Juice. That leads me to my next point:
You could not possibly imagine the energy I have enjoyed since about 4 days into juicing! That energy alone made me swear off caffein and I have not been through a drive through since. No craving, no desire, period. Now, my daily energy level is astounding. So, I signed up at my local gym. why? Why go to a gym if I have no goal to loose weight and am loosing weight anyway? The reason is BECAUSE I CAN! yes! I now have the energy to do 40 mn of walking every day. I now have the stamina to endure an elliptical for as much time, and my stamina is improving every day. So off the gym I go.
Stay tuned for more developments on my road to Change and better health.

This sketch above became this finished painting below
The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
