Time for change...again.

I don't know why it is so difficult to eat healthful. I caved and joined Weight Watchers because I have a need to track and monitor myself. When I was faithfully posting on this blog, I was successful and very focused. I stayed free from eating any meat for one year. 365 days. That experience was a life changing experience for me. It made me recognize that if I put my mind to something, I can do it. I can do anything. Fast forward almost 2 years later. Now, I am eating meat sparingly, milk products and eggs. After feeling bloated and uncomfortable, I started to research and re-motivate myself to return to a more natural diet. I watched several documentaries and read several books that have reminded me of where I was then and where I want to be. They reminded me about the pain and suffering that the animals go through so that they can be processed for my sandwich or my glass of milk. Originally, I wasn't avoiding meat for the sake of the animals. I was doing it for me. It was about my health. After doing some research and doing some introspection, I have come to the decision to eliminate meat entirely from my diet. With that, I am going to drastically reduce my sugar intake. If I eat eggs or milk products, they are going to have to be locally sourced and organic. I work in a farming community and know of family farms that have these products from animals that roam around in large fields. I see them on my drive to work. This is where I am starting. I don't know where I will end up, but I have to start somewhere; for me, for the animals. I know that cows and chickens are not going to be saved just because I am not eating meat. What I do know for sure is that I am going to eat will have less toxins, less hormones, and no dead animals rotting in my body. Yeah, to any haters who say. "What is wrong with this girl? She keeps starting over again." I am getting a vegetarian mulligan. I am going to start again; a rebirth of sorts. A vegetarian reincarnation.
