Life Style Changes Update #1

Well, I just started my 3rd week of my new life style change and the First Line Therapy program. I have to tell you, I feel fantastic. Not only have I lost 15 pounds in the first two weeks but I feel like a new person.

I am amazed at how easy this change has been. I have not been hungry at all and I have had absolutely, no cravings. I do not even miss the chocolate.

When you hear that eating healthy can cure you, it is true. I have not had to take a single aspirin in 2 weeks. My blood pressure has dropped 10 points, my moods have changed (for the better) and I just “feel good”. It has been so long since I really felt good that I forgot how nice it can be.

I am exercising with my Wii Fitness program and having a blast. I am now a hula hoop champion.

I met my goal of drinking 100 oz of water per day. My next goal is new jeans, one size smaller, by next month. I don’t think I am going to have any problems doing that and will update you when I make it.

Anyone considering a healthy life style change, I highly recommend this program, it’s easy and very satisfying. The hardest part of the whole thing has been planning my meals. I was not use to planning ahead. Now, I have to wonder why I never did it before.

Healthy living everyone!

Cat Fern

Those of you that know me, know that I am an avid cat lover. So, I just had to share this picture with you.

I had finished painting this pot and just picked it up from my ceramic supplies dealer. My kiln was not big enough to fire it so I had to let Ann do it for me. The pot is huge!

I set it down by the desk, planning on potting one of my ferns in it. When I came back in, arms loaded down with a gigantic fern, this is what I found.

Needless to say, the fern is still not repotted and the pot is sitting under the glass shelf. All of my furry babies love it. So of course, Mamma has to spoil them and let them have their toy. I guess I will just have to make another one. Good thing I hadn’t sold this one. And then again, maybe that would be a good selling point for my pots :-)
