Oh Weight!

March 7, 2016 at 9:20 pm 1 comment

It’s that time of year again, when I excitedly clean out my closet and begin to think about weight 2buying new outfits to wear. Normally by this time, I have started my Lenten fasting and am comfortable looking at myself in the mirror. This year is a little different. During the fall and winter months, I was busy going back and forth to the various hospitals and nursing homes that took care of my father. I thought about eating healthy foods and tried, but I really found that food made me feel…better… while I processed the fact that my father was dying.

As I attend my different women’s conferences and workshops, I look around and notice my heavily figured friends and associates who too are carrying extra weight. I can’t help thinking how many are care givers for ailing parents or family members, and just don’t have the will power or time to eat a healthy meal. How many of us are emotional eaters? When I think about women like me, I think about all the issues that increased weight brings to us in the way of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer. Oweightkay! I’ve got my own attention again. No more candy and I suppose I can give up cookies too!

    Very nice thoughts Dr lynn, l am impressed by the sincerity, emotion and clarity you brought to this post. l guess that is why the issue of learning to evolve is a must do for all of us. The challenges of life can be a draw back to doing the right things all the time. Wrote an article on the importance of evolving at my website http://theevolvingdele.com/2016/01/30/learning-to-evolve/ . Thanks for always being there to encourage us.
