Your children, spouse, co-workers, friends and peripheral people in your life are greatly influenced from you.
My son’s ask questions regarding clean eating such as nutrition, and cooking. I love their interest even if they do it because they know that it pleases me. It all sinks in on some level for them.
My friends ask me to help them evaluate their food choices and pantry’s, as well as their workout regimes and what has been a success for me. I enjoy knowing how much we can learn from each other.
My home-cleaning helper (who has worked for me for 15 years off and on depending on whether I could afford the help), asks me questions over the years. She has seen me prepare my lunches and prep for evening meals. Recently, she started using a food diary at my recommendation when she was feeling stuck with her weight loss goals. She made changes in her diet. Last week she texted me that she had dipped below the weight that she had been unable to move off of for years! She credits my tips and motivation for her improvement. I couldn’t be prouder.
I am influenced by reading articles, success stories of others, and feedback/comments from all of you.
-Thank you. Together we will succeed in our healthy living goals!
