Facing Realities

Friday, February 17, 2017

There has been a lot that has happened with me the last 6 months and I am having a very difficult time processing it all, accepting limitations I never thought I would have to face again, and dealing with health issues that were both unforeseen and unwelcome. The culmination of all these things is that I have had to limit my physical activity greatly and that is affecting every other aspect of my life. As I have PCOS to boot, despite eating a healthy, low carb menu, the weight is starting to creep upward (I am bouncing within a 10 lb bubble to date) and I am frustrated. I REFUSE to go back to my old life and I have no intention of letting these setbacks WIN!

I am doing the best I can to combat the plethora of persnickity things plaguing me. I am doing as much shallow water exercise as my body will allow and am pushing through the pain to log as many steps as I physically can. It certainly has added to my tiredness factor and it has definitely upped my analgesic usage, but I cannot and will not let it take me back down the road of being hopelessly unhealthy. Any and all prayers and positive energy would be greatly appreciated!

    I will be praying for you. It is not easy when dealing with a health issue. I deal with thyroid condition which makes it hard to lose weight and can make me feel fatigued at times.
    Please remember that every step you take does make a difference. It is good you have found creative ways to help get your body moving, especially when it is hard for you to move .
    God will help you every day. His word promises to do so.

    Praying for you. Hardest thing is to do is face the realities when your realities are as much as they are. Take it one day at a time. Bless you

    I have PCOS too, on top of a couple other things. I completely sympathize with you - it's SO hard. Just know you're not alone in your struggles and you can overcome it
