Embarking on a Path toward a Better, Happier, Body

Good Morning, God!

Several days ago Kit found an OLD photo of me at the beach — me looking svelte. Oddly enough, God, I did not immediately turn my face away. That was my former response because I thought those days — and that body — were gone forever and that made me sad.

Now I am pretty sure I can get part way back — if not to svelte, then surely to “fit.” This is a major shift in my mindset! Thank You, God! Partly, it is because I did shape up under the No Grain Diet. Only to fall — in slow motion — back into a more normal diet. So, I have experienced the joy of a happier healthier body.

Now, it would be TRUE HUMILITY if I took a photo of myself today — in a bathing suit. Not going to happen, God! But, it did occur to me that sharing how I am doing, or not doing, might help me. A small step toward confession, openness, and transparency? Hmmm. Actually, I think “Going Public” means I would be opening myself up to being ACCOUNTABLE!  Yuck!

Meanwhile, Sandy, who is visiting an ever Svelte Suz, is beseeching me to GO BACK on the NO GRAIN DIET! She wants an “Improved Role Model!”  Me too! So, to help with that, I have sent away for Gut and Psychology Syndrome: Natural Treatment for Autism, Dyspraxia, A.D.D., Dyslexia, A.D.H.D., Depression, Schizophrenia. That’s a book that focuses on first developing healthy gut flora.

Next, I shall make a calendar and track my weight weekly — and report back here monthly. Please, God, help me focus on Health and Wellness. And yes, God, re-retiring is KEY to having the energy to invest in these changes. Thank YOU!
