i have always taken care of everyone else.. my mom, my friends, my kids, my husband. i figure it is finally my turn..
its difficult for me to lose weight right now because i am going through menopause and i am on high blood pressure and high colestral medicines. i take multi vitamins to help with things, but man when that hot flash takes over my body.. i just want to either cry or eat something to make myself feel good. i have trained myself to work through these epsiodes and to breath.. and not to run to food..
i joined weightwatchers dec 28th. i needed someone to hold me accountable. someone to weigh me in. someplace i could go for encouragement.. i have tried everything before to lose.. so far with the point plus program.. the weight is slowly coming off..i track everything via e-tools and i LOVE it.. i think i can make it this time! i know i can!
my past has been one of struggles and triumphs, like most people.. i have found that i need to look at everything as an adventure.. realizing the bad part shall pass...
when i was little my father kidnapped me and the neighbor lady and took off across country.. back then.. there wasnt allot mom could do.. she hired a private detective and got me back.. i never saw my father again.. went through allot of abuse through the years.. but have come through a stronger person..
i have had a stent put in already, a stroke and mini strokes.. i have taken a more active part in my health care both emotionally and physically and feel so much more in control. doctors are human.. they dont really know me completely.. i have found my voice.. over the years and i am now using that voice..
i have always wanted to someday run a camp for christian misfits.. a camp where you arent judged by other christians.. that is my dream..with everything i have gone through.. i know god has a plan for me..and i want to follow his plan..
but first i have to take care of me for once..
i wish you all the best in your journeys.. this is YOUR journey.. make it a good one for YOU!
