What shall I do now? Anything I want!

I find myself at a turning point in my life.  I just recently lost my job because the woman I took care of moved to a nursing home.  Doing that same kind of work is OK but I feel myself gravitating to doing something else.

What that something else is…I have no idea!  I feel like the whole world has been open up to me.  When I think of the jobs I have had over the past 30 years when I was in the food, I can’t believe how many of them I settled on.  I was so limited by my physical body.  I could only do certain things.  Some jobs I took were very physically difficult for me (other people…probably not so much).  I suffered through each and every shift!

One odd job I took was a level supervisor in an area stadium during pro football games.  I was on my feet walking all around this huge stadium for about 12 hours.  I was the crabbiest supervisor in the entire place because I was so physically uncomfortable that it made me extremely irritable.

Let’s not forget about the sweating!  I was always so hot and uncomfortable.  Sometimes I would hide out in the beer coolers just to cool off!  I sweat so bad that I looked like a drowned rat by the time I got off of work!

I can’t quite believe right now the limits that I had made for myself in my ability to earn a living.  The thought of my inability to physically handle so many jobs was downright frightening!

Now that I have to find another job, I am just now realizing that I can do just about any job (within reason) and I do not feel that I have that many physical limitations anymore.  I don’t get hot anymore or even sweat, for that matter.  Even though I am 55 (at least for another week), I have never in my life felt that job wise…I am open for anything!

It isn’t easy for me to wrap my head around this.  In the past, I always had to worry about being able to physically perform for anything I wanted or had the chance to do.  I still think that way and have to restructure my thinking accordingly!

The amazing thing about being in a right size body is that you feel like your limitations have been lifted!  Why did I live so long with so many limitations?  How many opportunities have come my way that I had to pass up because I was physically unable?  All because I couldn’t control my food!  All because I didn’t know how to control my food or what was wrong with me!

In finding a solution to my problem, I found my real life!  I found the journey that GOD always had intended for me! Thank you God for this miracle!   I am going to follow God’s lead on this one!

Yes, I have lost 150+ pounds! I am a food addict and arresting this addiction was the key to being able to live in a normal size body...finally at the age of 55! I am interested in helping anyone who suffers from the obsession of food.
