Yesterday I had to have small physical, weight, height, blood pressure, ect. for the company that I work for. If I am healthy, the company gives me a discount on the cost of medical insurance. Standing on the scale, I weighed the same weight as when I graduated from high school. I am saying that I weighed the same; I certainly do not look the same. This is something that made me very happy and I feel is quite an accomplishment. I like to eat rich foods, dairy is something that should be cherished and I have rarely ever turned a good beer, wine or port away.
Four months ago I was ten to twelve pounds heavier than I am now. I started jogging with my dogs around the vineyard, I would swim laps in the pool (occasionally) and I started doing sit-ups at work as I waited for my lap-top to shut down. I have also started watching the portions that I eat as well as what I eat and when.
So start down this path of health, so that I can live longer and enjoy this wonderful life that the Lord has given me.
For that, I am grateful.
