"Seventy years are given to us! Some may even reach eighty. But even the best of these years are filled with pain and trouble;soon they disappear, and we are gone."(Psalms 90:10)
You cannot change your life until you change something that you do every day. ~John C. Maxwell~
The wellness center said they need to take a course in nutrition 6 weeks before transplant, is this what i read. How could they expect any one to lose enough weight in 6 weeks, and it woukd not be healthy. I think it would endanger a persons health if they were overweight and donated a organ, this is my thoughts on this any way.
Im starting to take control of my life today. I will take care of me, love my self., be good to my self, I am strong, i can do this.
