I couldn't leave for the hospital until I wrote and posted this...
So much has happened since I came here.
I've met so many wonderful Sparkies, and am beginning to truly care about many of them who have come alongside me during this difficult beginning.
I am already seeing so many amazing changes in my life, even though there is tremendous stress as well.
I have lost right at 10 pounds, and 7.5 inches overall...2.5 in my waist and 1.5 in my hips...just by walking three days per week, most weeks, and tracking my food....with a LOT of support and encouragement from my Sparkies.
I'm coming out of my shell, and feeling, for the first time in decades, as though I can actually do this...that I really do have something to offer to this world. I haven't felt this way since I was in my 20s or early 30s and I am in my 50s now. That is what battling with weight issues and social phobia will do to a person if she just gives in to it and lets it win.
I am now learning to take each day as it comes. And I am so grateful for the crisis that came two days ago and that shook my world to the core. Today is new day. Yesterday is gone...forever in God's keeping...and I know that He will judge it fairly and with mercy some day. Therefore, I will not look back on any of my yesterdays. I will take each day as they come, thanking God for them, and living each one to the best of my ability for His glory. And when that day is over, I will give it into His hands for safe keeping until I see Him face-to-face.
ok...NOW i'm gone.
