Real Change

Posted by Trewben on 3 years ago

Weight loss is the side effect! And what a great side effect. More than that, we have to change from the inside. That starts with the heart; how we feel about ourselves; seeing ourselves as more than an image in the mirror.

This is the place where the better you is! We have to do it together. If our bodies are our temple, than why is it we treat them like garbage cans? When the garbage overflows, we have to empty it and start fresh.

Be aware! Candy-bars don't grow on trees or come from the ground; and bags of chips aren't from a freshly speared boar. Be aware of the smells, the tastes, the colors that set off those "I wanna's" in the brain. Be aware that our food-like product we were putting into our bodies were designed and manufactured to smell better, look better, taste better. Who wants to be a slave to food-like product and those who manufacture it.

Next time you want that goodie... Take a look at a piece of dog food (kibble). Is there no difference between that and the cheese curl that's in your hand? Have you ever seen what happens to a piece of dog food when it gets wet? It turns spongy and rubbery. Imagine what it does inside our bodies, because the junk food we would eat is no different. Burn the image into your mind.

    Wow! What a day! Woke up sunnyside up and shared a smile with everyone I met. I was able to provide 15 organic seeds for my son's 7th grade "Farm Show" seed project! Now that's a way to be of use that I don't mind today! It's Like handing out a slice of life! The coffee shop is a place to share your motivation and enthusiasm on life, and building a support group.

    More than just juicing! It's more than just juicing. If I do a long reboot and then treat myself afterwards, more than likely I'm setting myself up for a massive failure. If it doesn't come naturally in the world, I don't put it in my body. I eat meat, local, grass fed organic and nitrate free. I eat nuts and seeds for protein as well. My experience has taught me that the moment I say I "can't" have that, then on the next opportunity, I will gorge on it. I need to remember it's not that I can't, it's that I can, and do I want to? The juice fast was just the beginning for me. Just enough to detox my body from the pollutants of preservatives and GMO's and get back to the natural me. From there, whether I eat or juice, it's about keeping anything manipulated by man, anything not naturally found in it's raw state, out of my body. It was about changing from the inside out. Once I detox my body and start introducing the good fruits and vegetables and nuts and berries and seeds, I start giving back to my body and treating well; hence, my body treats me well and says, "now let me shine for you!" everything got better. No more acid reflux meds everyday, no pain medicine for aches. I started feeling better and the weight loss was just a terrific side effect of treating my body good. Even before I lost the weight, I started feeling confident about myself because I knew I was treating my body great. I felt great telling people "no" when they would offer me junk food of any kind saying, "I don't put that stuff in my body". After a while, I started realizing how much of a slave to manipulated food I was. I started feeling so great physically and mentally, I started feeling almost like I had been no different than cattle - letting the food manufacturers taunt me, mainipulate me, and keep me wanting more. I was fat, lazy, depressed. That's no way to live!

    Today, I am no longer a slave to corporations and the food industry. I refuse to eat "food-like product" I will only put mother nature in my body. Today I am good to myself. But I have to watch going to extremes. For me, I cannot swear off to one thing entirely, It was a gradual process of adding in the good until it crowded out the bad to a point that I felt so bad when I snacked on junk, that I just didn't want to feel that way anymore... and I didn't have to. But when I run to extremes and just dramatically go toward one direction, I have to be very careful. I thank God for all the awful feelings I had to feel when eating bad every now and then after eating good, because I had to feel that bad to know how really good felt.

    Have a great weekend everybody! Support is here; you just have to stretch out your hand and ask for help. Stay plugged in! Be amazing today! You're worth it!
