Keep in mind way may work for me may not work for you. This is just what I’ve been up to.

This title may have been inspired by the fact that I need to convince myself of this. If you’re like me you think of being healthy or being on a diet as eating terrible food you hate for the rest of your life. That’s not true, and changing the way we think about it is the first step to becoming healthier with the added benefit of losing that weight you don’t want.
