I've joined the ranks who have decided to get healthy and stay healthy. I have started the "no white flour-no white sugar" elimination program, although I'm doing it with no real program. How much of one do I really need? It's no white sugar, no white flour. I think I get the concept. Since I am eliminating bad things from my life, including debt (hopefully), I also decided the other day to eliminate all the clutter from my work space. Now my table actually has a place for me to work without having to move 17 things aside to make space. It feels so good to purge. I am really hoping this change in diet will aid in better digestion and help me lose about 30 pounds. I am so tired of having back problems, which I never had when I was thin. I don't mind getting older as it beats the alternative, but I don't want to do it in pain and over weight.

I also cut this matte the other day:

I really needed a way to display my new lily pad pics that I took at the monastery. I loved the fact that the flower was bent under the water, not quite ready to rise to meet the sky.

Anyone out there try the no white sugar, no white flour elimination? I have heard you drop a lot of weight because it eliminates those things that turn directly into fat. If you've tried it, let me know what you thought of it. I'm anxious to hear some one's take on it.

Good luck with your healthier diet :o) I still have things with white flour on rare occasions...but it's easy to subtitute things: I brown rice, whole wheat bread, whole wheat pasta. When I bake, I usually use whole wheat flour as well. The sugar is a whole other story though :o) It goes in phases. I have found that moderation works best for me. That is wonderful that you're taking steps to better your life in many ways! Good for you :o)
