so i begin today with a prescription to a sparrow weight management program, not sure how long it will take to begin the program and with our 10 yr anniversary cruise coming up, i am a little nervous how this will all play out.
i am on a 3 week break from class, so the stress should not hinder the beginning of a program...
i have been earnestly trying a G-F diet and have learned it is time to learn more about the ingredients i need to stay away from rather then just the wheat flours...i notice a BIG difference as i consume foods and the way i feel physically...this journey is tough, but my doctor and i fully believe it is what my body needs at this point in order to fend off some of the many health problems that i currently face as well as those that are on the near horizon if i do not make some significant changes!!!
now is where i ask "WHY!?" "Why me Lord!?" "Why am I not allowed to enjoy 'normal' food like the rest of the world!?" "Ugh!" :(
this is what i'm learning...my faith is lacking and so is my self control! i have been struggling w/ being still and letting go for some time now and i believe this is a lesson that God wants me to begin learning and this is the first step...letting go and letting God!
so here God goes...
stay tuned for my progress...
in 1.5 wks i have lost a total of 4 lbs!!!
my DREAM goal is 75 lbs, my 'happy place' goal is 60 lbs
