Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Hello Friends,

I’m so grateful for my wonderful, awesome healthy family!  I’ve been thinking of everything that God has blessed me with.  The people who are here, the ones who aren’t anymore but touched my life, the lessons, the gifts, everything – even the things that have seemed so hard….sometimes especially the things that seem hard…..because they have turned into something magnificent.  I’m grateful for no longer feeling the need to stuff myself on this day….actually, it would usually be at least 3 days : )  I’m grateful to see what is really important….and it’s not the food….but the food I’m eating today will be very enjoyable, healthy and abstinent.  I’m just grateful to feel grateful!

I hope you have a very special Thanksgiving…..I’m also very, very grateful for you!

Lots of Love, hugs and kisses to you…..Sandee

God’s Perfect Plan for You

When we first started this website a few years ago, it was pretty much to just swap recipes within the group that I…and very few other people where in….for an eating disorder connected to eating sugar and flour. It has grown to so many people using it for various reasons…we all have the common theme of eating no sugar and no flour but also to just live happier and healthier lives…that’s awesome!

The way that I found the “right” diet for me to do was to do a “Daniel Fast”. There is a blueprint in each of us that is unique to each of us that if we can get in line with….our lives will be the way they are supposed to be. After doing the Daniel fast I was led to the group that I am now in and have been in for nearly 6 years…it’s a strict way to live and not meant for everyone….but I believe that it is meant for me….I’m still amazed that I have been able to do it for so long….well, not me….God, my sponsor, my group, then myself. I’ve seen a lot of people come and go…they see the results that we get and want those…the day to day part of it is too much though. Maybe because it’s not the right path….exactly. The good health ideals are a pretty common theme throught the successful plans…it’s just finding the right vehicle for you….and sticking with it….when it’s the right one….you will have a strenght and power from within that will help you stay on track….you still have to do the work….but you will have the desire and stamina to do it.

By doing a Daniel Fast, you can get in touch with God in a way that you never have been able to before….and you can let him remove strongholds and guide you within your blueprint. People ask me questions about their health and which diet to go on….I am a nutrition consultant….and a recovering compulsive eater…but if you have gotten to a point of complete confusion and feel that you’ve tried everything and are still at a loss. I highly recommend doing that….and asking God…..what is the right way for you.

I love so much how this community has grown and the amazing people that I’ve been blessed to talk to….keep coming back! We can do this together! I love you guys/gals!

It’s time to get extreme baby!

Hey, how’ve you all been?  I’ve been busy with a new workout….Eric and Alexis are doing it with me too.  It’s called “CHAlene Extreme“.  It started because I kept hearing about “P90X“, a

woman at my church did it and looks amazing…I don’t know how much weight she lost…she wasn’t fat, but now she’s in great shape….and I saw it on line a few times too….it’s an hour though, 6 days a week….when I thought about it realistically…I knew that I wouldn’t want to stick with that for long, so I looked at “CHAlene Extreme“.  It’s 5 days a week….two of the days are about an hour and the other 3 are from 35-40 minutes….and it’s only a 90 day commitment.  We have now been doing it for 5 weeks and are very happy with the results.  I have not lost any weight….and I’m so glad that I measured myself because of that….my weight is already right for me, but I would have liked some more food : )  My main hope with this work out was to get nicer abs….even in skinny size 2’s and 4’s I seem to have an apple body…..my waist went from 30.5 to 29, the abs went from 36 to 33.25 and my hips went from 36 to 34.25…..hourglass….here I come : )

I also wanted it to keep my mood up now that it’s fall and going into winter….and I do notice a difference with the work outs…..even when I don’t feel like doing them, the movements feel good and so do I within a few minutes….and definitely after I’m done!  The other thing that I wanted it for was more energy….and it has come through for me there too….I even did an extra one Saturday because I had so much and didn’t know what to do with it : )  Eric and Alexis like it too….it’s a fun family thing to do….we keep a chart on the refrigerator and write our initial in it when we’ve done it….dorky, I know, but we get such satisfaction out of putting our letter up and saying that we got extreme : )  There are very few products that we personally endorse on this site….VitaMix is one….and now this will be another.  We paid less than $150, (including shipping) for the entire set that all 3 of us get to use….and we can use it again….I probably will….I like to do the same thing over and over…..Eric is already thinking of the P90X….I think his testosterone got bumped up a few notches : )

I’ll start talking soon about the “Daniel Fast” again as well.  I want to start another one the first Monday in January….I like time to prepare….to think about what I want to release, what I want to gain….and to just start thinking in that direction so that God can take over more….I think that I’m pretty good about letting him lead the way….but sometimes there are blockages that I’m not aware of….I just like to give him the first of the year anyway….then the rest seems to go so much better.  I keep remembering the first one that I did.  I asked for help with my weight….and was taken to the right place on Feb 4 of that year….2005….I asked to do better in the job I was in….it ended up being that I really didn’t need to be where I was and was much happier and fulfilled by releasing it…..I asked for help with some personal issues that I was having that I had no idea what to do with….and got the help that I needed….it wasn’t what I thought it would be, but it was just right.  It always amazes me what God will do….and how He will do it….if I can just let go….now I look forward to it.  Will you think about a Daniel Fast with me….no animal products or processed foods for 21 days, prayers, goals and surrender….Daniel 1:8….you don’t have to be a Christian or Jewish to do it….it’s fun and powerful to be doing it with others : )
