Food Diary

Due to some very wonderful friends on MedHelp, my lovely daughter, a dear friends in London, Costa Rica and Washington state ... and an unexpected and most sincere heartfelt message from a beautiful woman in California ... I am back on track ... emotionally, physically, life-plan-wise, food-wise ... and I am happy and smiling.  

There have been a few burdens eased, but the truth of the matter is the unending, caring, loving and unconditional support has truly meant the world to me and sustained me when I stumbled badly.

I believe in being positive and continued positive affirmations and counting my blessings throughout ... but I still needed and received the support of these people and this wonderful WL&D community .. and MedHelp in general.  I am forever grateful for this chapter in my life.

Using my Food Diary, Weight Tracker, Mood Tracker and Exercise Tracker .. and being brutally honest with myself and everyone else with what was happening ... signaled I was in trouble.  It did to me .. it did to others.  That is why these tools are so useful and critical for our own awareness and to allow others to assist us in our journeys.

Thank you each and every one ... you are truly one of the greatest joys of my life and I am blessed with untold riches in the friendship and caring you so willingly extend to me ...

I'll do my best to pay your kindness forward ..

Love you and GREAT BIG HUGSSSS to you ...

Yes, my Friday was a bit better.  I managed to step away from a family feud and I was feeling a bit better physically today.  Thanks so much for asking.  So tell us what you bought at the market!

I'm so happy to see you back, heading in the right direction again.  

Keep moving forward.  Great distances are covered by only taking a single step at a time.  (and don't I know it--ouch, my feet!)
