Changing how we eat....

My husband has been talking to a great friend from our church about how to implement some real changes to the way we eat.  How to be intentional about eating healthy.  Here is a part of his most recent letter:

It is hard. It is totally opposite as to your lifestyle. It is simple. You will be very disappointed as to how much food you will NOT consume. 


Seriously - this is true.  At least, I'm finding it to be true, as I am just beginning to make these changes.  Compared to how much I *was* eating each day - I eat hardly ANYTHING (or so it seems).  Yet I am satisfied - not hungry.  I was just eating way too much.



....very disappointed.....yes, I am.  Or rather, was.  I'm working on it.....



p.s.  if you are this friend's wife, I hope it was okay that I posted this anonymously.  It just really struck me - actually the whole email did.  Thanks so much~

Changes like that are never easy and are something you definitely just have to push through and it does get easier, I promise. Brian and I had a really hard time at first, but now I can't even believe how much I was eating before and literally feel sick if I try to eat even close to what I used to. So, hang in there, you'll be so glad you did. I'm rootin' for ya, Lori!
