Today I learned my neighbor lady died, due to complications related to obesity and diabetes. My mother lived the last 15 years of her life mostly in a chair or a bed due to complications of obesity before dying last week.
Food addiction has a powerful hold on the mind, even when we know we are literally killing ourselves with the food choices we make.
For me my Sparkpeople BL team is one of the best tools I have to fight my addiction. If it weren't for the Blue Sapphires support, I would be much heavier. I have learned so much researching food addiction, but it doesn't change the fact that I am still responsible for the choices I make.
My focus today is to get out of my chair and do a bit of yard work along with 3 good meals and a healthy snack this evening.
I need to think about the world outside my door a bit more too. Life has more of a purpose than just work and eating. This morning I bagged a meal for a homeless man and used my little Julia's flea medication to treat his poor pit bull that is suffering from fleas. Didn't know what I was going to do with Julia's medication after she passed a couple of weeks ago, but God found a use for it.
Just for today I will take care of my health both physically and emotionally , I will let tomorrow take care of itself.
I wish you peace.
