4.7 real goals

Sunday, April 07, 2013

Now that I'm at my goal weight, its time to review why I had the goal in the first place. Why did I want to loose the weight? Pain control was a big part of it. Diabetes control also. Being able to keep up with little ones when the time comes for grandchildren. I just wanted to feel better, really and I do, so much so! My life has improved along with my health. I have found my calling. I am now a caregiver for the elderly and disabled. I love my work! I've been doing this version of it for 16 months. Before that, I worked as a personal assistant and biographer. I'm always happiest when I'm helping people. I'm on my way to building credit and buying the house I live in. None of it would have been possible if I still felt like I did when I began my journey.
