Diabetes, fatty liver, high cholesterol

If I knew more about these health issues I might be feeling scared right now. First, I don't know if I even have any of these problems; still doing testing. I should know more in the next week or so. Right now I feel more in a fog. But the more I hear from others who have the same issues or know of someone with the same issues, the more I realize "this is serious business." I have been trying to work on my health here and there, but not enough to really see any results, especially in losing weight. The gym once or twice a week, drink more water, less fast food (hoping to cut that out entirely, unless it's Subway or something like that), and walking. These have been goals and I keep trying to be consistent, but when you've been out of those elements for so long, it's hard to begin again. This has to be my wake up call as my daughter stated.

My friend, Lisa, gave me a calendar, "Renewing the Heart" that has "spiritual refreshments for each new day". I happened to have it open to April 20th...don't know why because I've been pretty good about flipping it over each day. But it just seems so appropriate:

"A life change is not always easy; but then, God doesn't always want to 
make it easy for us, for it's in those stressful times that 
we grow closer to Him. Sometimes God allows us to go 
through an experience for the powerful lessons 
we could learn no other way."   
Susan Miller, After the Boxes are Unpacked

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28 (NIV)

And even if my health is better than presumed, I still have the chance to change things towards the better and that gives me peace.
