Last spring as soon as we started camping I put on five pounds. By July I was at an all time high. I had my “annual” doctors appointment and getting on the scale made me come face to face with my unhealthy lifestyle.
As I would sit on the deck reading I would THINK about how I SHOULD be moving. I did try a few exercises ONE day (seriously, I did it once) but I didn’t do anything consistent. I knew the way I ate should also play a role but I didn’t know where to begin and what would work for ME.
I needed a clear-cut plan that would make it simple for me. I needed someone to tell me what to do, what to eat and have it be something that wasn’t a diet but a new lifestyle.
I had a well-check with my regular doctor and she said my cholesterol was very high, but so was my good cholesterol. She said if she put me on medicine it would also take down the good cholesterol. She asked if I exercised and I said no. She said if I started just doing that it would probably take down the bad cholesterol and I wouldn’t have to take any meds.
Leaving that doctor’s appointment I knew something had to change. I wanted to be healthy and I didn’t want to take medicine to get there.
I love how God works and how He answers prayers that aren’t even spoken.
The next day I found my answer in my inbox.
