Wow, so much has been happening in my life lately that I almost feel overwhelmed, but it's all good!
First, as I posted in my last blog, I've been reunited with my daughter, Ashlyn, who will be 15 years-old this month. So far we have majorly clicked and have loads in common with each other, so my genes must be really strong in her. She even asked me if I have wide hips, because even though she is of a normal weight, her friends tell her that she has child-bearing hips, LOL! I told her I sure do have a big butt and hips! I love my baby girl so much! God has truly blessed me to have joined our paths again!
Secondly, I signed an agreement with one of my therapists yesterday that states I will maintain sobriety and abstain from using any drugs or alcohol anymore. While I'm not addicted to anything, I have been "escaping" from life for quite a while now by using various drugs, whether prescription or illegal, or even over-the-counter, to help deal with my life. I have realized that God is trying to work in my life, and I have so much joy that that I no longer feel the desire to have a head-change anymore in my daily life. I have never told anyone about my drug abuse, so I'm hoping that you all will still accept me on here, especially considering that I'm giving them up for myself and for our Lord. I don't need drugs to make me feel better anymore, even if they were just a temporary fix to my problems.
Lastly, I began a weight loss challenge in the Weight for God team that started yesterday, so I'm pretty hyped about being back on track with my eating habits and doing something fun and challenging with my dear friends on the team!
