Week 010 – Day 067
You may have noticed that I did not take my last shake last night. My gout is bad and I have found that I wake feeling good after taking drugs to clear up my symptoms from the day before. It seems as I take the Fasting Shake and Bars, my gout flares more with each… thus I have cut out the final shake. I may be getting stones as well. My entire lower back hurst all the way around, and I have been having steady growing pain under my rib cage. This could be several things, however…. gas…. hernia…. stones… pulled muscle…. etc. We shall see, but it has been for days now… and is getting worse each day. I am praying about what to do, and shall continue to do so until I have the answer I ask of. I press on.
Of note: I get stopped on my morning walks by several people now who are recognizing my weight loss. They all had been seeing me each morning as I wave to them and say “good morning”, with a smile. Sometimes I compliment them on something that is theirs that morning. Now they do so to me….. which is an amazing feeling. This morning I had a rather famous Football Player stop me, as he sees me daily as well. It is interesting how just being recognized for your efforts may push you to work even harder. That is a great lesson for everyone. We can choose to have a good day, and share that with others. I stand amazed once again.
