This news honestly had me down a bit, but I'm grateful I've found out before too much damage was done and there's still time to reverse this trend in my health. I want to be around for a many more years for my family, my church, and just to see some personal goals come to fruition. Pray for me that this news will be the kick-in-the-pants that I needed to get back on track. I believe it's important to have some level of discipline in all areas of your life. Taking care of "my temple" is the one area of my life that I have definitely been undisciplined and, honestly, sinful. Hopefully this marks the end of that chapter of my life!
Extreme "Temple" Makeover
In the interest of continuing this theme of changes to our family, I'll share some news I received a couple of weeks ago. I got a call from my doctor's office informing me that I'm diabetic. I was not expecting that one. My triglycerides are quite high as well, so I've started a new regimen of drugs, diet, and exercise. I've been losing some weight since we moved to Dixon (about 11 lbs. so far), but it's just been slow-going from minor diet changes. Time to get serious!
