Wednesday's Word: Health

With my husband's new job came a new health care company.  My husband told me that if I were to lose 10 pounds it would be worth $600 (savings on our insurance for good health, including an acceptable BMI). So the past few weeks I've been working hard and shed the pounds. But more important than the $600 I gained, is the way I feel. I feel great. I can't wait to go walking in the morning, rather than having to drag myself out there.

I basically know how to eat and exercise, etc., to maintain my health. I think we all do. But it is  so easy to slip off track, succumb to the dark side (refined foods and sedentary lifestyle). My weakness is potato chips. What's yours?

Good health is more valuable than rubies and gold,
yet it can not be be purchased,
nor can it be sold.
It must be created all by one's self,
and once its obtained
it can't be placed on a shelf.
It must be worked at until one's dying day.
And if one's vigilant
that milestone may be pushed far, far away.


  1. Congratulations on your weight loss and gained health! I too have been working on getting healthier. My scale is broken, so I don't know how much I've lost pound-wise, but I've dropped a couple of sizes. I'm feeling stronger, too!

    My weakness is anything with sugar, especially if it contains chocolate. :)

  2. Love this post. I wish I had an incentive like cheaper rates to motivate me to lose ten pounds. I should have more inherent will power, huh? Good luck with all your new changes!

  3. Way to go! My weakness is dessert.
