Feeling rough due to not taking the best care of myself.

Saturday, May 03, 2014

For the past two days I've been feeling lightheaded and tipsy. It's almost like being drunk without drinking being involved. I had my blood pressure taken and it's up. Am planning to see my doctor Monday to make possible change in blood pressure medicine. In thinking about my diet, I have room for improvement. Especially getting rid of sodium.
Many times I ask myself why I wait it I feel bad until I take action in taking care of myself. I'd like to take good care of myself before I feel bad. I hope I'm not the only one who waits till long to take action.
So here I am on SparkPeople, looking for good ways of taking care of myself. Am also saying prayers that I actually follow through and be consistent in taking good care of myself.

    Will pray in agreement with you. I so understand the feeling of wondering why I have to be half dead before I try and take care of myself. Thats why OA refers to it as insanity!
    I friended you. Maybe we can work through steps 1,2 & 3 together as I saw your blog while I was posting on the OA team page. emoticon

    A Lifelong Journey
    We who began working the Steps in order to recover from compulsive eating now find that through them we have embarked on a lifelong journey of spiritual growth. From the isolation of food obsession we have emerged into a new world. Walking hand in hand with our friends and our Higher Power, we are now exploring this world, using the great spiritual principles embodied in the Twelve Steps as the map to guide our way. We gratefully follow in the footsteps of many others who have walked this way before us, and we’re gratified to be making footprints of our own for others to follow.

    Those of us who live this program don’t simply carry the message; we are the message. Each day that we live well, we are well, and we embody the joy of recovery which attracts others who want what we’ve found in OA. We’re always happy to share our secret: the Twelve Steps of Overeaters Anonymous, which empower each of us to live well and be well, one day at a time
