Wow. I had not realized it had been so long since I had been on here. Anybody still here?
Oh, well. I don't mind talking to myself. Besides, my narcissistic tendencies are starting to overpower me.
So much time has passed. And so much has happened.
Or maybe not so much.
Let's see. I have gained 14 pounds since my last recorded weigh-in (which was in July). Gasp! 14 pounds.
Eek! That's a lot. Wow (shaking my head)....sorry, I'm just shocked that I have gained that much. No wonder I was starting to feel heavy. No wonder I was starting to feel like a stuffed sausage about to explode from it's casing. No wonder my entire body was starting to moan and groan while all this strain was put on it.
My poor body.
It has gone through so much. And yet, it has never let me down. I have used and abused my body for more than 22 years. I have fed it with the most unhealthiest foods you can think of. I have let it sit idle while it screamed for activity. I have let it balloon to the size it is now.
And again, it has never let me down.
I have never had a major illness or sickness. Never broken bones or severely injured myself. Besides being overweight and the slight high blood pressure, I have never had any major problems with my health.
Never has my body failed me. And all my life, I have failed my body.
I truly am an ungrateful person. There are people battling for their lives because their bodies are giving up. There are people who are wishing they could run or walk or do normal physical activities, but can't because their bodies won't let them.
And here I am, with a body that would do anything to please me, and all I have done is laughed in its face and I have treated it with such inconsideration.
Writing this brings tears to my eyes because I can't believe I have been so careless. I can't believe I have been so evil and mean to something that has been so good to me. The way my body looks is my fault. But the way my body functions, moves and heals itself is a gift from God.
It is time to start showing a little gratitude for this precious gift.
