Well, it has been a long time since my last post, but I have still been working on my health. These past couple months have been a roller-coaster. I have been trying to eat healthy & exercise but with absolutely no results. I did a spiritual fast in January that also included only eating fruits and vegetables. I didn't look at my scale all month so I would focus on the real reason for the fast. Of course, at the beginning of Feb I checked. 2 lbs. What!? Only fruits & vegetables for a month & only 2 lbs. Ugh. I do everything by the book. Eat every couple of hours, staying on a non-processed diet, exercising, keeping my stress down, & many many more. After this I felt defeated and lost a lot of hope. So of course I went through a couple of days where my body got abused with very processed crap.
I talked with my husband and we decided to do some blood work. This gave me a little hope again. I figured he would find something & boom- it would be fixed. Well, nope. Guess what, I'm healthy. Ugh. There are a few small deficiencies that I have that could definitely cause weight gain or block weight loss. But I was hoping for a direct--here this is what is wrong. Instead I got, well this is low & this is low, so you can take some supplements and it Could help. So that's my next step. I just pray that is the problem. Being 30lbs over my healthy weight is taking massive toll on my emotions. Thank goodness I have our father God to help me stay up beat & joyful. But of course that only happens when I am able to give the problem to him which doesn't always work.
