The Challenge of Obesity
My Personal Health Journey
I always struggled with body fat. Losing that battle caused me to also have to struggle with diabetes, hypertension and etc. It cost me more than I can account in the form of my eyesight and possibly lifespan. However, I have faith in God’s grace, and that all things led me to right here just so I could tell you my story.
To the end that along with the telling you might be helped or blessed in some small way in your own struggles. I struggled and failed for 32 years. I admit for many of those years I just gave up all struggles and dwelt in depression, sickness and pain of my own creation.
This is the story of my journey from that state to this. Not only to weight loss and wellness gain, but in growing to a life that I love within a disability that I have adapted to. Its a series so subscribe!

Achieving a better state of health was only part of the growth process upon which I embarked. Going places, hiking or at least walking a lot there and taking pictures became my go-to thing.
Its just what I do. The fly in my ointment is that being blind in the legal sense its really all a bit of a blur. Ok. A lot of a blur.
But I am good at framing a shot is a skill. And when my eye is a few inches away on a really big screen, it almost looks okay. With my beautiful and wise companion Margaret Webster and the little dog Aby, we roll about and do and see stuff. I cannot tell you how profoundly grateful for this woman I am, or imagine how limited my life could be without her.
I have found that being grateful is the key that opens oh so many doors. But I’m human, I forget sometimes. But the journey continues, and I along with it by the grace of God for now. Let me share with you!
