It is time to change, to get fit, eat healthy & lose the weight!

I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
—Philippians 4:1

It isn't where you come from; it's where you're going that counts. -Ella Fitzgerald


1) Do not skip meals. Skipping meals may cause your metabolism to slow down or lead you to overeat at your next meal.

2) To lower your risk for chronic diseases, such as coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes, select high-fiber foods like beans, fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain breads and cereals.

3) Choose lean beef, turkey breast, fish, or chicken with the skin removed over fattier meats.

4) Have three daily servings of vitamin D “fortified dairy products, like low-fat or fat-free milk, yogurt, or cheese. You can also take a daily calcium and vitamin D supplement.

5) Choose foods fortified with vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is naturally found in foods that come from animals, including fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk, and milk products. Also fortified breakfast cereals.

6) Keep healthy snacks like dried apricots, whole-wheat crackers, peanut butter, low-fat cheese, and low- sodium soup on hand. Stay away from snacks that are high in fat and sugar, like cake, candy, chips, and soda.

7) Drink plenty of water or water-based fluids.

    Thanks for the comment on my Sparkpage. I am all about self help books. I live in Indiana, I have all of my life. Hope we can become sparkbuddies!! How long have you been divorced?? We are actually separated right now, but I know divorce will be coming soon. I am trying to stay active on sparkpeople to get my mind off things and to get some friends and support!!
