No times the right time to start

Just got a few weeks of the blood sugar diet left to complete.

I am away next Saturday for 2 weeks and I honestly feel like I don't want to undoo all my good work.

I have realised that no time is the right time to start, as I could come up with reason after reason reason not to start.

People are saying well you are away so don't worry ,but for me I think I will just be back to where I started.

I will eat and drink sensibly ,and I will be walking alot.

I have never felt so good and that's priceless.

Thanks

Gary

You have learned a lot about yourself in this process Gary and that knowledge won't let you self destruct. You are already mindfully thinking about what you will eat and what excercise you will do. Use these new found skills and enjoy your holiday. Don't focus on it when you are away, have fun and we look forward to hearing from you when you get back.😎🌞

It's my second home,I am so chilled out when I'm there .

I first went some years ago and as soon as I got there I felt so relaxed.

I would live there there if I could .spend my days helping others .

I am so envious. It's a country I would love to visit. If you are doing lots of walking in the heat you will burns loads of calories just remember to drink lots of bottled water. Enjoy the experience.

Do you know I sometimes do that Gary. I am frequently amazed at what I see others eat and drink. I don't pass judgement I just wish everybody could understand how to eat well for the sake of their health.

Yep, funny how people think we can't continue to eat well because we are on holiday.

Thank goodness we have changed our mindset. I certainly feel so much better for it.

No, I think it is just habit and that is what they have always done. Plus of course people still think eating low fat products are healthy.

Hi Gary

From the sound of things your new lifestyle is so ingrained in you that wild horses wouldn't make you deviate from it!

I so admire that you have completely changed your mindset, and that you completely embrace your new healthy lifestyle.

Have a wonderful time in India and ... Happy Birthday!
