10/15/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Monday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 12. October 2013 16:49

I met an amazing women who inspired me the other day.  She was at the small gym where I work out with my trainer once a week.  She said that she was grossly overweight (her Dr.s explanation), and had been debating with her doctor whether to do a stomach stapeling procedure or to try to make changes in her weight through diet and exercise.  Clearly, she was giving the diet/exercise route a try.  She said she wanted to be able to walk to her car without being winded and to change the shape of her body.

We talked at length about clean eating and she talked with me about the foods that are pitfalls for her.  She was upbeat and interested in hearing about some of the ideas we discuss regularly in this blog.  I found her to be an inspiration!  She was making 'baby steps' but giant leaps nuntheless.  I forwarded a e-mail periodical that I get about Diabetis and issues surrounding that disease, for which she was appreciative.

Her strength gave me energy and reminded me why I  love reaching out to people about what I love...nutrition and exercise!  I hope I have a new friend, and with renewed dedication I continue my own education about how to eat clean and feel great.
