It's Time!

I have been a Christian for 25 years. I have a great family and am happy and content. But I know I need to be healthier. I know that with prayer and determination I can do it.

Congrats on the Perfect Attendance Award!!! I hope that you are doing well and receiving many blessings! I miss you! I am working on getting on track - getting a grip on my blood sugars and taking insulin like I need to. I signed up for BLC29, as I hope to have time to participate - I am taking a few months off from work to get refocused. My mother is still ill and went through a Whipple procedure - major surgery for pancreatic cancer - and she is possibly going to follow with chemo. So, the trials continue - but I am reminded of the book of James, which opens with the statement that we should be thankful for all kinds of trials, as these build perseverance - So I am thankful in the midst of it all! I know that God has walked with me every step of the way - carried me in fact. Well, old friend, I hope to hear from you soon!

I am so glad that you didn't let that thought in your head slip through the cracks! I have to tell you, when I gained the 10 back, it's easy "it's JUST 10 pounds, I can get them back off again!" Well then it was 15.. okay so 15 isn't great but I can get them back off again... now to see 20, it's like pump the breaks! What has happened here? And yes I can't wear the smaller pants I have to wear the one size up, and some shirts aren't fitting and I just avoid them. But avoiding it won't get us anywhere. I FEEL the regain, I actually feel that I am heavier (which of course I am, but to FEEL it is the worst) and I have to get this turned around. If I feel this heavy and uncomfotable up 20, what happens if I gain the 70 that I still have off? I don't even want to think about that. We will get it turned around, one day at a time. Thanks so much for always commenting and sharing, it always helps to know I have someone who understands. emoticon
