I'm Debbie and I'm taking it a day at a time

I've been overweight all of my adult life. Getting tired of the yo yoing. In the year 2000 i was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes. Turning a deaf ear to the diagnosis i felt "now that i'm taking meds i can eat what I want and not worry aobut the diabetes" How wrong i was. It took an almost fatal accident stemming from a blackout after a 400 blood sugar reading and a fall down a flight of stairs which could haae been much worst in the injury area. I was so lucky. Someone was watching ...

Turning a deaf ear to the diagnosis i felt "now that i'm taking meds i can eat what I want and not worry aobut the diabetes" How wrong i was. It took an almost fatal accident stemming from a blackout after a 400 blood sugar reading and a fall down a flight of stairs which could haae been much worst in the injury area. I was so lucky. Someone was watching over me. Finally some sense was knocked into my thick head. I've been eating healthy ever since. Not only making healthy choices, i exercise 6 days a week. Since last November I have lost 40 lbs. I enjoy using my sense of humor along the way. It helps burn calories when you laugh. Today i have normal blood sugar readings. I feel good, look good and I'd like to love aobut 40-50 more pounds. I've come this far, I know I can do it. I have faith in myself and Love me more today than i ever have. I'm so glad i was introduced to Spark People by a friend. It really helps to track my food and exercise. I like writing about my feelings, my emotions, my dreams.

Being almost totally Deaf/legally blind has it's drawbacks. But today I am comfortable with myself for who I am. It has not always been this way. It is the main reason for my Emotional eating disorder that triggered Binge Eating normally at night. That is in my past thanks to SparkPeople.

I just read this poem & felt it too good not to share on this CHRISTmas Eve! God bless!

{This is another version of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' }


'Twas the night before Jesus came
and all through the house
Not a creature was praying,
Not one in the house.
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed.
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter.
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

The light of His face made me cover my head
It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame.

The people whose names had been written with love
He gathered to take to His Father above.
With those who were ready He rose without a sound.
While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There's only one life and when comes the last call
We'll find that the Bible was true after all!


(by Reverend Edward M. Gionest, Sr.)

To those who receive Him, He gives the power to become the sons of God, even to those that believe on his name. Repent and declare with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.
