|Depiction of Purgatory|
With occasional diets as the exception, my Mom was obese during most of her adult life. In the end, cancer and chemotherapy claimed her extra weight. Throughout this process, I feel like I'm walking with Mom. She's urging me to get healthy now and not go through what she went through. Either way, the weight is coming off.
This past week I've been a bit lax. Last weekend we went to an ordination and partied for two big meals. Those meals weren't a problem because we (my family) didn't do much eating on those days besides the parties. What it did though was give me a taste for dessert again. I've been fighting it ever since. Thank God for the morning walks or I'd be lost.
I've been listening to spiritually and motivationally edifying podcasts and music. I'm working exercise into my life and getting up more from the couch. I'm eating whole foods and reading labels. I'm praying at meals. Please pray for me. I really need the help.
