  • Words of Wisdom/Encouragement

    When I first joined this forum I noticed a lot of members had nice little quotes and sayings in their siggys. For some reason reading them was nice, encouraging, uplifting. It sort of puts things in perspective, especially for someone like me who's still struggling.

    Although I haven't yet benefitted fully from the primal way of eating, I thought it was still helpful to come up with a bunch of little 'conventions' for eating. Here's a few (Even though some of these are stupid, don't laugh!)

    -Eating is a give-and-take relationship. Donít take from food that has nothing to give.
    -Vegetables are sexy.
    -Refined sugars are the enemy. Donít let them trap you with their beguiling bright and shimmery packaging. THE CAKE IS A LIE!
    -Sometimes being a zero is good. (read: referring to water/tea/coffee having no calories)
    -Eating healthy foods wonít kill you. Eating crappy foods can.
    -3 Sís. Slow and steady wins satiety.


    I have others but I find these pretty helpful, silly as they might come off. What do you think? Lol!

    good ones!
    I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.

    You're never going to get to the top of the stairs if you don't walk up them.

          Noctiluca: Thanks. After I realized I was consuming empty calories (like juice and dyed sugar drinks) and just plain "junk" food, I realized that all the things I was eating was not giving me actual nourishment.

              "if you drop one egg on the floor, do you drop the rest of them on the floor too?"....in other words if you slip up, does that mean you have to totally blow your whole day? This is something I still need to get through my thick skull lol

                Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

                    I let this one happen way too often.

                        Success is a journey, not a destination

                        :-P My favorite quote for everything. It's true, isn't it? When you don't eat that pizza, you've already achieved success. Keep going!
