I'm back!

Friday, March 16, 2018

Stepped on the scales at the Dr's office and was shocked to learn my weight had gone up from 175 to 206 lbs. I was eating chips and Cheetos which are loaded with fat. Even though eating chips does not show on my Blood tests, it shows on the waistline.

After going off the chips about a week and a half to two weeks, I am now losing again! For me, it doesn't happen overnight but over some time of doing without. Then it finally begins to happen.

Also, concerned about worry. I wake up in the early mornings and stay awake worrying about my grand kids, about this and that. Basically I worry about anything and everything, needlessly. It's related to the Diabetes 2 but I am trying to figure out ways to worry less or none at all. My wife is not a worrier. I envy her. She lets nothing bother her. Wish I could be more like that!

    Prayer is the only way I was able to release worrying. I just say "God's got it" and that statement eases my mind. I guess we always will have concerns about our children and grandchildren. It's a different world they're growing up in. But the worry is gone, thank God.

    Worry can increase cortisol which can add to our weight. Take care and keep on keeping on.

    Welcome back, Dennis,

    Kids and grandkids - good reasons to be awake worrying about them. When you are awakened with thoughts of them, maybe it's the Holy Spirit prompting you to pray for them. I always start praying when I'm awakened in the night - even if nothing in particular is on my mind. No prayer is wasted. I always tell myself that God is in control.

    I agree with 1CrazyDog - yoga or meditation might be helpful.

    Back to basics. Do what you know works for you.
