Last week amongst the stress of my sister's life, and my mistake with my medicine, I realized that even though I have made a lot of progress in therapy, I still have a long way to go. It reminded me of how I revert to my old ways of coping. I just didn't see that one coming. Now aware, I will move on with this knowledge in effort to make better choices in the future.
Right now, I am riding high with a great attitude. Everything seems to have pulled together for the good of my life. I went to the dietitian and my results were impressive. I have now lost 25 pounds. My blood sugar is in check. I am feeling so good with very little pain and my well being is in a steady and peaceful state. I am eating well, exercising and making lots of progress in therapy. Amen is all I can say.
I have waited all my life to be a whole person. I know I have a ways to go, but from my perspective I am doing really good. It is like a magic formula. You have to have all of the parts working for the good of the main project (me). For years and years, I could not get it together. I would exercise, but always felt hungry. Never completely getting it right. Now that I have made this much progress, I am amazed at how hard it was and yet, once I learned the key facts, how easy it is.
Today, I am happy with my life. Why did it take so long to understand it all? I am hopeful and encouraged with my progress. I go to my family doctor in June and I pray that my numbers are as good. Cholesterol is down from 212 to 147 at the last visit. Blood sugar and triglycerides were still high at the last appointment. I know I can do this and I believe that my eating habits, taking medicines, and exercising will make all the difference. And I am finally sleeping. Yeah!
And lastly not to be overlooked, I thank all of you for your positive support and love. Of course I could not have done it without your support. Big hugs to all of you.
