Thank you for your kind words on my blog - as awful as those "things" we've been through are at the time, that's how we grow into who we are. And you're right. We define ourselves, not the things that happen to us, although I do attribute the person I am to some of those events because (like you said) they do change us profoundly.
I hope you don't mind, I've added you as a friend. Looking forward to taking this journey with some pals close by. The road is long but time does pass so quickly. Thanks again. :) 1434 days ago
Thank you for commenting on my tracking blog. So glad someone else completely understands what it does to my journey!
The final straw on the soda happened when a fitness trainer I was working with over the summer told me that the soda I was drinking was eating away at my bones and raising my risk for osteoporosis. I am already high risk for that and I watched my Grandmother die from it...have a leg amputated prior due to brittleness of her bones. I decided right then and there that I would finally give it up. I'm not going to do anything to my body that increases my risk for that awful condition. It took at least 3 months for the craving to go away but now I never even think about soda.
Keep trying! It is a totally awful product to put in your body! Nothing good about it at all. Worth giving up! 1571 days ago
Thank you for popping in to read my blog... it's a good feeling to know we are not alone on this journey and we have much to learn from others and what they are doing that works for them and just might work for us too! 1576 days ago
