In January of 2012, I decided to embrace the Paleo diet (with some modifications) in hopes of helping my migraines and other chronic issues. I wish I could say that the migraines were completely gone, but they have improved a great deal. In addition, I've been able to lose 43 pounds. While I don't agree with the Paleo diet entirely, I have tweaked it to work for me and I tend to eat food the way it should be eaten. Years of trying this and that have never done what this program has done for me.

In June of this past year, I had a rather unfortunate accident, which stalled out my weight loss and left me with an injury that may require surgery. It's only been since Christmas that my weight loss journey was finally able to continue down the path and I'm optimistic about the healing process that I have yet to go through. It's truly been a faith journey as I see how the Lord has been working through it to make me a stronger person. Hopefully though it all I'll be able to encourage others.

    I am unlimited.
    I take responsibility for my life.
    My every action is a conscious choice.
    I can accomplish anything good that I truly set my mind on.
    I keep focus, and persevere.

    The Knots Prayer

    Dear God:
    Please untie the knots
    that are in my mind,
    my heart and my life.
    Remove the have nots
    the can nots and the do nots
    that I have in my mind,
    Erase the will nots,
    may nots,
    might nots that may find
    a home in my heart.
    Release me from the could nots,
    would nots and
    should nots that obstruct
    my life.,
    and most of all,
    Dear God,
    I ask that you remove from my mind,
    my heart and my life all of the 'am nots'
    that I have allowed to hold me back,
    Especially the thoughts that I am not good enough
