What was your resolution? When and why did you make it?
In early 2014, I just didn’t like the way I looked or felt. I have been an avid jogger and exerciser for years but was getting tired quickly and having lots of pain. I ran into an old friend who had just lost 12 pounds by eating gluten- and sugar-free. I thought, “Why not give this a try?”
When did you achieve your resolution?
After a few weeks, some amazing things began to happen: my trainer could not believe the difference in weight-bearing exercise I could do and my endurance skyrocketed.
Had you tried and failed to keep this resolution before?
I tried it all! We’ve gone through the low-fat, low-carb and Paleo approaches without success.
What other positive changes have resulted from you achieving your resolution?
I am able to enjoy life to the fullest. I work long hours with my patients, and being healthier allows me to do better for them. My doctor has supported me coming off blood pressure pills for the first time in over 20 years. I don’t get heartburn and indigestion as I did before, and I sleep much better too.
