|My Weight Loss Bears from Nutrisystems|
If you know my story you know I suffered chronic illness and pain for over a decade due to my Type 1 Diabetes.
It is a miracle from God that I found my way out of the dark bowels of sickness, negativity and pain. I use to pray so hard that He show me the way out of that suffering. What I never recognized was the answer was right in front of me. Eat the foods God has made and not men!
My Dad was the only one growing up I knew who really cared about his fitness and his health. He tried to get me to think about how important it is to take care of myself and I never listened. It is a lot like religion, it doesn't hit the person or mean anything to someone until they find the truth.
When the light turns on you want to share it with everyone, but not everyone wants to listen or hear what you have to say because it makes them feel like you are passing judgment on them. Am I judging them?? I don't think so except I think to myself “only if you knew what you were truly eating”. My objective in sharing this good news is that I want to help other people. I want them to benefit from being healthy and fit like I have the last 4 years.
To not have to suffer bad health and disability is what I call freedom the way God intended us to live on this earth. Yes, sometimes eating right and exercising isn't enough to fight some diseases. However, it will give you a better chance to live longer and have better days on this earth, so why not take it?
|My New TENs Unit for my feet|
I am still as sick as I was 4 years ago, I still have neuropathy that hurts and use my TENs unit regularly. I still have to wear my insulin pump, but because of eating the right foods I don't have to use as much insulin as I once did, which also helps eliminate fat from my body.
By controlling my blood sugar eases my neuropathies, its a win win situation. Can I still go blind? Yes. Can I still lose kidney function? Yes. Can I still lose a foot? Yes. However, my chances of survival are greater now than ever before due to the change in eating.
What if no one shared with you the things I am telling you today? To me if I don't share my story with others I wouldn't be a very nice person. I want to scream from the roof tops for others to hear the truth. You don't have to suffer! Yes it takes work! Yes it takes guts and strength! If I can do it , you can do it!!
Do you share your healthful views with others? If so, what kind of response do you get?
