spirits up, weight down

I feel like a dang teeter-totter! My emotions are wacko, my weight is wacko and my brain is, you guessed it. I must be going through my second menopause or something . . . I have no other explanation. I’m craving chocolate [but am able to resist it the last several days,] I’m not sleeping well, I’m freezing cold, and have a sore throat. My immune system is probably not what it should be. I had two huge pimples erupt on my face last week just minutes after the candy bar incident, but they are gone now. And I was up those 2-3 pounds, but am back down to 141. I can feel my spirit strengthening and I’m more in the mood to pray. I’ve eaten completely healthy for two days in a row. Lots of fresh fruit and veggies, whole grains, skim milk [I even bought some coconut milk, Camille!] eggs, plain yogurt, healthy nuts and berries, and vitamins. My insides are getting much better, thank you.

Wow.

What a learning experience! Hopefully I’ve got this figured out by now. I read this great quote and it seems to fit.

I think forgiveness may be the greatest virtue on earth, and certainly the most needed. There is so much of meanness and abuse, of intolerance and hatred. There is so great a need for repentance and forgiveness. It is the great principle emphasized in all of scripture, both ancient and modern. Somehow forgiveness, with love and tolerance, accomplishes miracles that can happen in no other way.
~ Gordon B. Hinckley

Now, go make a difference!

Live Well, Love Life!
