FringyLiz's Journal, 02 September 2017

Just a little bit at a time, and I'll get there eventually. Keep drinking my water, keep eating many small meals instead of gorging on big ones, keep avoiding nutrient-free carbs (like sugar and flour, not my green leaves and veggies), keep moving, keep making many small healthy choices and I'll keep making many small healthy gains.

This is not a single, heroic, one-time effort. There is no battle to win, no goliath to stand over, victorious for all time. Health is a garden that needs tending with a gentle touch. You plant and water and weed, you work with the soil and sunlight that you are given, and over time it will blossom.

A horrible storm swept through my garden of health this winter and destroyed everything. It's taking a lot of work to put things right. All the beds were mangled, and while I rebuilt the basic earthworks, I couldn't even start planting. It's easy to despair when you don't know when, or even if, things will ever bloom again.

But hope is a choice, and a healthy one. And it's the hardest one I've been making. I'm grateful to all my friends who are helping me to keep making it.
