NOTHING Tastes as Good as…

Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels

Have you heard the saying, “Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels?” Well..I have a different saying. NOTHING tastes as good as being HEALTHY feels… I will never be “thin.”  I will be healthy.  I will be healthier than I am now.  And…nothing tastes as good as it feels to be healthy.
