We are in it together....

Since the time Garvin and I have been married...we have nearly stayed...toe to toe in being "100" pounds apart...I was 125 and Garvin was 225 when we began holding hands...down the pathway of life...

Today, we are once again..."100" pounds apart....I have to smile at that...We both were at the HIGHEST we have ever been in our lives in weight...Due to Garvin's lymphoma, we are now...EATING to LIVE and not LIVING to EAT....

Due to so many precious friends...we are being directed to BLOGS of good health...Piles of BOOKS have been lent to us...PRAYERS...petitioning not only for recovery...but, HOW to DO IT...Figuring out WHICH course to take...One of the hardest things we have ever had to face...for there are SO MANY VOICES....Yesterday, I hit...a point...that I am now begging...to hear a SINGULAR voice of the SPIRIT...so that I can discern...and that Garvin can discern...how to do it FATHER'S way....in HIS particular case...

We have come up with a plan....For now...I will restrict the comments...to our ATTITUDE on HEALTH....

We have been given the "Word of Wisdom"....How SIMPLE it is....how COMMON SENSE it is...to the well being of our bodies...We have been making all kinds of juices...different combinations...plus...taking the bulk of GREENS (after juicing them) and simply adding them back into the juices...for an added punch....(we don't have a blender in our motel room...just the juicer...so, this works for now)

MOST of our intake...is in raw form...though, I have more "cooked" things than Garvin is doing at this time...I LOVE SOUPS...so...I indulge myself...in that arena...Besides, when it is cold outside and snow on the ground...SOUP seems to call my name....to balance nature's current wintry weather...

Garvin has now lost 20 pounds...and I am still limping along...but, thrilled nevertheless...in my progress...small as it is...

I am hearing GREAT things out there....Sounds like many of you have found...a way...to make progress in your weight loss...But, I believe more than ever, now, simply EATING HEALTHY...the LORD's way....will achieve that goal....DIETING is NOT THE SAME...LIFESTYLE and ATTITUDE...of EATING TO LIVE...more than LIVING TO EAT...will have greater results...

  1. I love this, I was studying the word of wisdom just last night and I love hearing how good you are doing with it and the change it has made for you. I'm trying to copy your example. I agree its a life style and the thing that has worked best for me is not restricting myself about what I can't eat but making myself eat good things. When I meet my goal of eating at least 3 veggies and two fruits everyday I'm full and don't want to eat other things. Plus I like the idea of focusing on the good and not on all the things I'm "missing."
