Get Inspired by others

Lose Weight Permanently - Get Inspired by Others

ripped-absThe internet has some awesome lose weight resources. I admit it - today I have a bit of writers' block. I've read a lot of excellent articles the past couple of days and nothing I've tried to write has measured up.

So today I'm taking the easy way out. I'm going to share some inspiring articles about people who've conquered their eating issues and achieved vibrant health.

Here’s a story about a man who lost over 400 pounds by adopting healthy habits little by little. He rejected the easy ways out like weight loss surgery. Wow if he can lose 400 pounds, surely we can all be patient enough with healthy lifestyle change to reach our goals!

Here's a great Zen Habits post on 3 simple ways to help the environment and get fit at the same time.

If you think vegan food is boring, here's an enlightening article on cooking gourmet vegetarian food…and I'm not even much of a cook!

Here's a mother who lost 3 stone (that's 42 pounds) because she didn't want to pass on her bad habits to her kids. Remember those commercials in the 70s that showed a young boy copying his father's smoking habit? What message is unhealthy eating and lack of exercise sending to our children?

I also have to share a new blog I found this week by Susan Bodendorfer. Her situation is so similar to mine it's almost scary. She also has an auto-immune disease and found that a whole food, plant-based diet improved her condition dramatically and also helped her lose weight. Check it out:

Which lose weight resources on the web inspire you?
