My New Journey

Beginning on January 1, 2010 I am embarking on a new journey. I am beginning the Daniel Lifestyle to a Healthier Me. This is NOT a diet. Diets don't work. I have tried them all. They are just gimmicks to trick you into thinking you are going to lose weight. Don't buy into it. The Daniel Lifestyle is a new way of eating and living. Your body is the temple of God and it should be treated that way. I have failed in treating my body like a temple. I have abused it, drugged it, filled it with junk and just plain hurt it. I suffer from diabetes and thyroid disease. I have polycycstic ovaries and am overweight. My husband and I want to have another child, but I know that I have some work to do to ensure that I can carry a healthy baby to term. Although this lifesyle is Biblically based, you do not have to be a believer to join me on my journey. I would love to have everyone join me. Each day I will be posting tips, hints, recipes, changes in the types of food you eat, and lots more. I will begin with cleaning out our cabinets. There are some things you must eliminate from your eating that are not good for your body. I will be using a couple different reference books to help me along. I will post things that I find important or enlightening. I hope you begin following my blog and keep me posted on your progress. I need all the support I can get and prayers too... Emily
