My goal is to improve my families health and not just my own. We still went out for breakfast this morning, our normal Saturday ritual, but I made wiser choices. Afterward we walked around the farmers market and bought lots of fresh veggies and fruits. Then dropped off the family, over to church to meet with my prayer partners (have not mentioned my new health plan with them, I probably weight 100 pounds more than the two of them put together) Instead of laying around this afternoon we went to the park and walked about a half mile, before the rain started, may have been as much as our daughter could handle, she was not a happy camper when we started off. Change is hard, we just need to decide we are an active family. I am feeling so much stronger and healthier. I did start the new diabetes medicine this week, not happy to need more medicine, but I am not sure how much of the feeling better is the medicine or the exercize or the diet or combination of all three. If I keep going with the exercize and diet, maybe I can back off on the meds eventually. All in all I am praising the Lord for this new perspective.
