Keep Your Joy!

July 31, 2017…A lot of you know that mom was in the hospital for a couple of weeks. She is doing a lot better and went home last night. Yea mom!
I can hardly believe it is one day from being August. Wow, it is just a hop, skip, and a jump from Fall, then you guessed it, winter. Nooooo, I am not ready for winter.
So I guess you are wondering how I am doing on my weight loss journey. Not to good but I did lose 4 pounds and that is great if it is not all water weight, lol.
I am happier than I have been in a long time. I was like the walking dead. When we live in the past we are not really living, because the past is dead, it has no power except what you give it. Bury it and go on with your life. And don’t be so hard on yourself, God’s mercy is new every morning. Confess it and forget it.
I am going to tell you a secret, I like to eat. There is not to many foods that I don’t like, but because of my weight I can’t enjoy the foods I love the most, like Mexican foods, (I love Mexican food) and Chinese food, foods I call soul foods, collard greens, chicken, fried potatoes, corn on the cob, and Thai food. I can go on and on. I do not like a lot of sea food, except crab, shrimp, cod and halibut. Oh, I almost forgot, I love pasta, just about any kind of pasta. Hahaha, gotcha, I enjoy all those foods way to much or I wouldn’t be as big as I am. But that is ok, it will all work out. I will get better at it. I have a lot of people encouraging and walking with me on my journey.
Well I got to go, I have flowers that need watered and then I have need to get to work on cleaning my home. Have family coming on Aug 20th and I want them to think I am an amazing housekeeper. I wish! UGH, it will take me to the 20th to get it clean because I have to go so slow. But not to worry I will get it done.
