My Personal Mission

 

7/22/2014
Healthy eating is my personal mission. It has been part of me for as long as I can remember. One can say, it was important to me long before the rest of the world jumped on board with the idea. I’ve always been ahead of my time.

You see, my own father was obese. He struggled with his weight most of his adult life and eventually the complications and diseases associated with it, took its toll and took his life prematurely. He was only 72 when he died. I think he would have lived to be 100, if he wasn’t overweight. So, I understand and empathize with those who also struggle and their families. 

Fast-forward to years before, when I was in my first year of college studying nursing at Jamestown College. I decided to take matters into my own hands. I was going to help my dad and mom, by preparing menus of healthy meals for them to make so my dad would lose weight and become healthier. I spent a great amount of time preparing and mailing them. That was in the 1950’s and I’ve being doing this for awhile now…more than 60 years and counting. 

Unfortunately, circumstances were what they were in those days, and it was not fully understood how to control one’s calories and eat healthy portions. Helpings were heaped onto plates at mealtime. If you had it, you ate it! The sentiment that carried over from the Great Depression I suppose.  Waste not, want not. 

I am happy each day knowing I’m helping more people like my dad by providing portion-controlled meals. I am overjoyed when I am contacted about someone who has lost a significant amount of weight and is no longer saddled with complications from obesity.

My goal was simple nearly 30 years ago when I started the business that is now known as Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating: to help improve people’s eating habits and overall health. I’m living my dream, but I have so much work left to do. There are more people than ever who are obese.

    Success in so many ways. After five weeks, not only do I feel so much better, I have lost 11 pounds. Eating healthy has made me want to increase my time exercising also, so great for weight loss and just feeling good about myself. Thank you Seattle Sutton!

    So very true. It reminds me of the movie, Wall E where everyone is overweight, sitting in recliners, using push buttons and being moved on conveyer belts. Honestly, I never knew what "super energy and vitality" could feel like until I started your life changing program last year. All of those food additives are killing us in more ways than obesity, ...

    I had been having cramps in my legs, very painful. This was going on two or three times a week. If I laid down for any extended amount of time, like to watch a tv show in my reclianer, or even on the bed. When I went to stand up, the cramping would begin in my legs. I started looking for answers, over time I talked with many doctors and nothing the ...

    All "drinks" are likely to give you heart problems, etc.  All pop/soda contain something that is bad for you.  Whether it be sugar or artificial sweetener.  Unless you shop at a real health food store, you are going to get something that is bad for you.  Live your life to the fullest each and ever day because you never know when it could be your la ...

    This is quite honestly the most delicious food I have eaten recently!  Amazing... the margarita flatbread was gourmet!  I don't feel like I am dieting, at all.  I am on the 1200 calorie plan and was concerned about being hungry.  I have not been hungry yet and have so very much enjoyed each of these meals.  I more impressed than I can express.  Tha ...
