So this week has been a real eye opener for me. On Wednesday my wife had to go to the hospital for a kidney infection and when they done bloodwork on her they discovered she has diabetes. Her sugar was over 300 and she hadn’t even ate anything that day. She too has always struggled with her weight since she became an adult and has attempted many times to loose. It’s no coincidence that I’m back doing rbl this year and learning and applying good eating habits and now my Wife is following my lead. As soon as this kidney infection passes she is going to come with my to the Y sometimes.
Unfortunately this year has been a rocky start for my Wife. A little over a month ago we experienced the tragedy of losing our unborn son. It’s way too easy to get caught up in the hurts and the emotions and turn to food for comfort, even in the most tragic situations. No matter who you are, life will always throw you curveballs. I’m learning to lean on my Saviour for strength. I must alow the Holy Spirit to keep me encouraged to look past the temporary hurt, and keep focused on how much better life will be being healthy.
