I am addicted to sugar. I realized I was really liking sugar way too much when I started making sure I always had something sweet around to eat. I was lonesome and used that for my excuse among others. Then I changed my thinking and decided that I didn't want to live what little years I may have left fat and unhappy and not feeling good about myself.

I am addicted to sugar. I realized I was really liking sugar way too much when I started making sure I always had something sweet around to eat. I was lonesome and used that for my excuse among others. Then I changed my thinking and decided that I didn't want to live what little years I may have left fat and unhappy and not feeling good about myself. I battled with myself at first and said I was a grandma now and we were supposed to be cooks and I didn't have to be sexy anymore because there was " no man to please". Then I decided that I did not want to be like that. I could change my mind to enjoy the time I have more if I am not self conscious about my appearance and feel better about life. I will be free and not addicted to any substance or person except the Lord. With his love for me and help I will be an overcomer! You too.
When I started this my main goal was to lose 50 pounds for my 40th class reunion in the summer of 2014. I have never been to one. I havn't seen these old friends since then but I have connected with some on facebook.
I have been keeping track of my food and I knew I had to get completely off sugar. I have been walking/running around the lake 1.2 mile at the park daily when weather permits. I also do a Richard Simmons work-out daily rotating between Oldies 2,3,4. Drink water! Sometimes I will allow Sunday off or another day. Actually, my daughter-in-law and I have started walking the 4 mile hike through the park after church on Sunday.
I am a single 57 year old Christian lady that still has many good years left - Lord willing! I have one grandaughter I cherish. (She is not really liking this change in Me-Me because she used to get a lot of sweet treats here.) I live in central Mississippi but I used to live on the coast.
I am trying to work "The Daniel Plan" by pastor Rick Warren, and 2 doctors, into my life and it has really opened my eyes to so many harmful things I was eating. I am trying to find a balance as I started a Sunday evening 6 week study of "Gods at War" by Kyle Idleman.

Life is short,Break the Rules.Forgive quickly,Kiss SLOWLY.Love truly.Laugh uncontrollably,And never regret ANYTHING That makes you smile,keep Smiling. Thanks for stopping by and also for the goodie,have a wonderful weekend.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, It is not proud. It does not dishonor others, It is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, It keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. - Corinthians 13:4-8 Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
With gratitude, all life appears as a blessing - without gratitude, all of life is perceived as a burden. Avoid the tendency to compare your life with the lives of others, with your idealized hopes for life, and with your own life when you were younger. Every moment of your life is a gift -- not something you are "entitled to" or something you "deserve." Practice zero-based gratitude. Zero-based gratitude is being grateful for everything in your life -- grateful that you woke up this morning, grateful that you have enough food to eat, grateful that you can walk and breathe and see. have a wonderful and awesome day.thanks for the goodie.
