Proof, It's the FOOD! I'm Getting Younger

Last month I had a birthday and needed to get my license renewed. In North Carolina, we only have to renew every 8 years. In the picture below, left side is 2007 at age 40. The right side is now (2015) at age 48. http://blog.eatplant-based.com/my-jo...ger-not-older/

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

Ha! I've looked drunk a a few myself! Many people from other states have told me they aren't allow to smile in theirs. I wonder what's up with that? They want it to look like a mugshot? lol!

In Florida (at least where I am) we can't smile. It's weird.

You look cute in both photos! You've really transformed your health, though!

You really do look younger and healthier in the later photo. That's just more evidence that a whole-food, plant-based diet is the healthiest diet. Please continue to keep us updated as to how your diet is positively affecting your health. You are an inspiration to all of us!

Thanks so much everyone! I really do feel THAT much better. Even after going on 3 years of eating this way, once in awhile I'll do something and think, "I used to not be able to do this!" Some time back, I was leaned over, scrubbing our bath tub, and realized that my knees, hips, and wrists didn't hurt at all. I remember overwhelming thankfulness coming over me when I remembered how difficult that used to be for me. Still have to pinch myself sometimes....

I will definitely continue to update. I'm so passionate about getting my health back, I couldn't shut-up, even if I wanted to. And thank you so much for the encouraging words.
