My Mother, an Inspiration!

We all struggle with our weight. I used to think it was just people within my circle, but it’s everybody; its me, my husband, my friends, my co-workers. It isn’t necessarily related to food either, but can come as a result of different things our bodies go through in life, stress levels, current health status, etc.

The Paleo lifestyle (notice I said lifestyle) has helped me manage my weight on a consistent basis, which only helps me feel better. Learning about food, cooking, ingredients, and new ways of cooking food have been an enjoyment for me, that I want to share with others (because it isn’t as hard as some may think!), hence this blog. It’s truly inspirational and empowering when I receive feedback and questions from readers or followers, that they’re slowly making changes in their life, way of cooking, things they’re eating, education, etc. Knowing that someone else feels so much better as a result of these changes, is amazing.

My mom (my most loyal blog follower 🙂 ) started making lifestyle changes back when I started my blog (unknown to me at the time), she texted me over the weekend to let me know, that she has lost…55 POUNDS! She, like I, understand that it’s a slow progression, that takes time, but the rewards are aplenty. I would like to think that some tips/tricks/recipes that I’ve shared have helped, but really, she’s the inspiration to me!! I am so proud of her and I love that she is taking ownership of her health!!

It is not always easy, but it is worth the effort.
