I have been lurking the site for a while. I need a lifestyle change. While I don't have major health issues now, I am on a path that will inevitably lead me there. I want/need off that path. In less than a month my son will be two years old. I am at the beginning stages of metabolic syndrome. There is history of heart disease and cancer in my family so I need to get things straight so I'll be here for my family. OK, so theres a vague background of where I'm coming from, now to where I want to go. I need to be healthy. I like meat. I like veggies. I like fruit. I also like bread, grains, corn, sugar, cakes, pies, beer, and wine. Basically I like everything except peas - oh and shrimp but only because I'm allergic - it sucks. Last night while planting my fall cool weather veggies in my garden no shirt, bare foot, a thunder storm rolling in and it started to rain, I had what I think was my first "grok" moment. I think I even grunted like Tim Allen on Home Improvement! Although I think grok would be wise enough to come in the cave out of the thunder and lightning. I think I'm ready. So now what? I don't want to dive to hard core in and get discouraged and give up like I have on so many other of my past weight loss endeavors. This is not a weight loss plan... it's a lifestyle change that HAS to happen. I'm open to all comments and ideas.
My next post won't be so windy - promise!
