The only two things on my mind when I started my weight-loss journey were diet and exercise. I was about 30 pounds overweight, and I was convinced that these two factors were the only ones that mattered if I had any hopes of getting back to my healthy, fit self once again.
Before I was even able to change my eating habits and start working out again, I cleared out all the toxic relationships in my life.
What you eat and what you do are certainly two important parts of getting your health on track, but what many people don't realize is that overall health doesn't only come from the food you eat and the workouts you do. There are so many other facets of your health - adequate sleep, hormonal balance, emotional and mental health, etc.
