I was moved by this message i received on facebook just yesterday and wanted to share it with you. If you are just sitting on the fence about getting healthy and in your head you are already convinced that it couldnt possibly work for you then i am here to tell you that it can.
And its wonderful examples like this one that fill me with so much happiness. Congratulations Staci Fosenburg. You are truly and example and inspiration to so many.
Last year, I got really serious about losing weight. I exercised regularly and followed what pop culture considers a “healthy diet” packed full of empty carbs and artificial ingredients/sweeteners. After losing around 30 pounds, I began to train for a 10K this past summer. I realized that the “diet” foods I was eating were actually hindering my performance when I ran. Then I stumbled upon your website. Your recipes and helpful advice on foods, when paired with my own training and motivation, helped me to not only run that 10K, but to lose 75 pounds overall. Having never been this size or looked this way, you have no idea what your help means to me. The looks and compliments I have received are nice, but the personal satisfaction from knowing I’m living a truly healthy lifestyle means the world to me. At first I was asked quite often if I had developed an eating disorder, but it makes me so proud to tell them that a healthy diet and exercise were literally the only things I needed. So thank you, Joey, for being passionate about what you do and about spreading healthy information to as many people as you can. You truly are making a difference in people’s lives!
