Week 010 – Day 068
Again I have had to cut out the last shake of the day due to gout. I must apologize for typing a bit of frustration regarding what happened in the program a few days ago. It is my own frustration… and not an issue of the Program, or anyone involved. My pain levels have been so high that I sometimes forget that the staff is doing everything that can for me… and have helped save my life!! They are doing that with everyone that makes that decision to do so. They are great…. and I very much appreciate them all.
I have received an answer from the Father, through the Holy Ghost. He lead me to the program and got me started…. He has carried me all this time. It is now my time to carry a bit more and make myself responsible for what I do. As I type this, I find myself a bit emotional, and full of the Spirit. I will be leaving the program… and continuing on my own, still with the Father’s help. It has become obvious to me this is what is to happen. I will be able to control my gout and get off these hard core medications I take to control it currently. It is simply the right thing to do at this time. I will miss my team mates… the staff… pretty much all of them. This group of people are quite incredible, and they can do anything they decide to do. I will miss them greatly, and I will never forget my time with them. One of them, Veronica, texted me with concern after reading my outburst in this Blog a few days ago. Veronica is fantastic, and has lead our group in “effort” since the program began. I have actually been trying to keep up with her, as she inspired me. That stated, her text comes as no surprise. She is likened to the person whom always wins the Biggest Loser. She cares about those around her, and pushes us all. There are many like her in this group…. they are ALL amazing! I shall miss everyone. Thursday will be my last meeting and weigh in at the Program.
I wish to thank everyone involved for a great journey in this program. Nutritionist, RN, Staff, Doctor’s….. everyone. You are doing great work.
