Talk about a timely blog! This story is exactly what I needed today, the positive motivation I needed today, to continue my journey. I was just reading about sugar addiction and decided to go read a few blog posts instead and this is exactly what I needed. The whole idea of it taking 2 years for a transformation is a little disheartening! But, it is beautiful to know that I am indeed on the right path! I was planning to work on the diet next.

There wasn’t much of a choice otherwise I wouldn’t have made it further, so I put in the cheapest amount of diesel I needed to get to the next stop.
How many of us do this with our bodies on an ongoing basis? We often live such busy lives the thought of preparing every breakfast, lunch, dinner or for snacks, busy days, rushing about, is just too much & we grab a quick fix to get us through to the next quick fix & so on.
