Eat To Live

Today marks what I hope to be a lifestyle change for me!  Inspired by one of my beautiful sisters, I have decided to Eat To Live.  For any of you who know me, it's no secret that I LOVE food and because of that I have gained more weight than I'm happy with and in turn have tried numerous diets through out the years.  While some of the diets worked, I would always eventually slide back into my old ways and gain back everything I had lost plus some.  It has been soooo frustrating to say the least.  But now I have been introduced to the book Eat To Live by Joel Fuhrman, M.D.  Although I have not yet read the whole book, I decided that I could not wait another day to start this lifestyle change!  And I am so excited about it!  Eat To Live is not just about weight loss, it's about eating to improve the quality of your life!  How could you say no to that?!?  I am going to retrain my taste buds by cutting out processed foods and sugars (and numerous other tasty foods), and in turn gain the healthiest life possible!  I know it will be a challenge, and there will most likely be numerous days when I just want a Big Mac, but in the long run I know a Big Mac will not add to my happiness (no matter how yummy it is).  By posting this on the web, I am hoping it will be a source of accountability for me, because I really want this to be a success!  To start off this morning I had my first green smoothie (delish!).  I made it from almond milk, spinach/arugula mix, frozen mango and banana, and ground flaxseed.  Talk about yummy, I can definitely get used to this for breakfast every morning!  Take a look:
