So because this artical is so long I have decided to break it into two (2) parts.
Well I have talked about where I have been so lets talk turkey. I have been Obese for most of my life. Not just overweight but obese. There is a saying out there , used by most of these "weight guru's"; about being thin and feeling better than anything you can eat. I do not remember the exact saying right now. My question for the is, what if you don't remember what thin felt like? How do I know? Now don't get me wrong, I imagine that being thin or less would feel great. But there are a lot of us that "thin" is just another word [four letter at that] lol; in the dictionary. It is something we would like to be. Do you think people wouldn't like to go hiking, ride a plane without buying two tickets, or shop in a store that didn't start with "Big &Tall". Obesety is a "disease". If you are addicted to drugs or alcahol some people say well they had a hard life and need a little help or rehab. Those same people look at a heavy person and say they a just lazy. They need to exercise more. As you can read in the blog from June what I think of the lazy statement. Ok enough of the soap box. sorry about that. Me I went to school in public school system all but one year. We had health class in the winter because it was to cold to go outside for activity and the gym got old fast. Lets face it we had a "coach" teaching us why and what we should eat and God bless them for trying, But What we should have had was a dietician teach us right habits and bad habits. I am not saying this would have stopped the obesity crisis we are in now but it could have helped some people. Anyway I made the decision to drop out of school my Senior year. That was one of the wrost decisions I could have made. But I did regroup and get my GED and went on to college. I was studing for a secondary teaching certificate. But money was an issue and I never got to finsh that. But remember I believe God has a plan for us all. So from college at 21 I joined the US Army. Well I got my knee injured in Ft Benning and was given a discharge. I now know I got played there, I was told I could have a TDP or wait a few months and maybe get a medical discharge, and I would have to recycle into basic where I had just been injured anyway. Being young and not understanding the situation I chose the TDP. Which is a "Trainee Discharge Program". So I got out of the Army with an honorable discharge but no benefits for my injured knee. But life went on. .... (more to come)
reading the bible
Remember that everyone is different and what works for one person does not mean it will work for you. remember that especially with weight reduction.
May the Lord continue to Bless and Keep you all.
