I Give Up

Wait...I am not quitting the weight loss agenda or the 8 week challenge...I give up trying to do this on my own. I have been doing everything right...eating, exercising and still no real results. So I have decided that like in AA you must first admit you have a problem (done) and then take it to the Lord.
I will continue to do all I can do and then just put the rest on the Lord. I have been going to this little Santuary Cove on my bike rides and taking advantage of the ambiance and praying. I have been asking for help, pleading for understanding, begging for an unbroken metabolism.
I know that all the diets and all the times I have lost the weight and put it back on have destroyed my metabolism and I don't want to do the drug route so I have asked the Lord to repair it. I have been blessed with miracles of healing before so why not now?
Since yesterday I can really feel a difference...I know that sounds stupid...one day? But I can! I feel like this is the first day of the rest of my life. I don't feel alone anymore.
Don't get me wrong Cory and the girls have been so over the top supportive and that has really helped but I have been alone inside...but not anymore.
I know my Heavenly Father has always loved me...I am glad I remembered that he can do hard things with me.

Being a Canadian has it disadvantages at times...voting is one of those times. I believe in voting and when people complain about the government I always ask, "did you vote?" and if they said no...I would reply...you forfeited your right to complain! So I try not to complain...but heated discussions are always fun.
My father was always active in politics in Canada and he instilled in me a sense of responsibility when it comes to voting. I feel like such a loser when elections come around and I cannot vote. I tell myself to get off the pot and get my US citizenship already!
People ask me all the time what I think of socialized medicine because Canada had it. Well it is nice to be able to go to the doctor without the fear of the cost...but nothing is ever free. What you gain in peace of mind you lose in higher taxes and patient care.
A lot of people are fired up and can't wait until November to vote...the more the merrier. It is always better when the majority of people vote...then you know it is the will of the people.
I love the United States of American...and I love my fair share of Americans...I hope everyone will vote tomorrow and keep their right to complain!
