I'm always happy I can say that Jesus lives in my heart! Unfortunately the poor guy is surrounded by blubber and watching body strain and struggle to stay healthy despite the cookies and ice cream an caffiene and extra 65 lbs. My bood has not turned to syrup yet, but was higher than it should have been last year at my annual physical. My cholesterol and all that ok, but at two separate times my blook pressure has been above normal in the last month (two separate offices, two separate machines) and 'normal' has always been above normal for me!
Between April and June this year, I lost 24 lbs. Yea! I was motivated and stoked! And then I got lazy, and in the last two months I put it all back on! Arrgh! I've never been one to diet and try to lose weight. I didn't yo-yo at all; I just didn't "yo" to begin with! When I quit drinking alcohol, I had lost a little over 20 lbs. and I've never put that back on.
I've really got to do this though. I've got a ton of risks for heart disease and diabetes, and I need to manage the risks I can so Jesus' house doesn't fall apart around His ears.
Today, I pray that the Lord will guide the choices I make regarding my health and that He will strengthen me against the temptations that would keep me in less than good health.
