One month later

One month later, 10 pounds lighter, and training hard to learn the skills, and knowledge necessary for my upcoming rank.

One life decision that I have made, only due to the knowledge that I have the will power, and ability to do this choice successfully, is to cut out all junk food from my diet.

I have slowly improved my diet over the past 6 years, and now I feel ready, and willing to stop eating those empty calories that have had me in their grip for so long. I'm talking about chocolate, chips, pop, etc. I know that I have been addicted to them for so long.. using them as a crutch to bring happiness to my day after feeling overwhelmed by the stress, and demands around me. Now, I feel mentally strong enough to walk away from these temptations. I know that they do nothing for me.

Another life style change for the better, this I am sure. It will only enhance my good health.. but first I have to survive the withdrawal period. I've already warned my family, and friends that I have made this decision, and that the next 2 weeks may be difficult for me as my body adjusts to less sugar, fat, and salt in my diet. I'll work towards controlling my emotions, and reactions using all of the mental Martial Arts training that I've accumulated so far.

Mir - I thought you had already embarked on a healthy diet to combat your eczema? Whatever it is, sounds like you're on the right path! I like it. Colin

Yes Colin, yes, I did change my diet to help my skin condition, but that change involved separating my starches from my carbohydrates. This new decision involves refraining from junk food in addition to the above diet change.

Thanks for your support.
