Two things come to mind. " Every thing must change" " The more things change the more they stay the same"
Time has marched on, My changes have only been mental and emotional but they have yet to lead me to my weight loss goal. I am eating smaller portions and much more healthy food. I have been a couch/car potato. Lots of pain and other health issues and some grieving over sudden deaths of people I loved contributed to this, My daughter has taken the step of lap band surgery. I am proud of her. It has been almost 13 years since my gastric bypass. I lost a lot and gained 75 pounds back over the years. Many changes have required emotional and spiritual adjustment. I have done fairly with those changes. However I still fail to put my health first. I will soon be 66. Much of what I thought I would accomplish after having the surgery at age 54 remains undone. Time is bringing about changes but I have some to bring about myself and time waits for no one. There is so much truth in what we call cliches'. The best change I see in myself is that I am gradually becoming a creature of truth when it comes to Jacqueline.
What I have yet to acknowledge is how I have dealt with the health issues that have surprised me over the past two and a half years. I am amazed that exercise fell by the wayside in the face of that. Time in the doctor's offices and labs should have ben augmented with time moving my body. I am an embarrassment to my self! Now there is an epiphany. Thanks be to God from whom all blessings flow. (one more time!) Onward and downward !
