That's heavy mannnnn...

Updated: Aug 4, 2020

Actually this post isn't about anything "deep" or intellectual. It is just about overall mental and physical, and spiritual health.

I had a very stressful year in 2019 and ended the year with about a 50 pound weight gain. I went from 235 to 285 and have been holding steady there from mid-winter until now.

My psychiatrist and family doctor are aware of this and I trust them completely to guide me regarding my mental and physical health.

My therapist, whom I also trust completely, told me that you don't want to start yo-yo-ing with your weight too much either. Apparently that is very dangerous as well.

I have belonged to a non-profit, international weight-loss club for at least 10 years now. We support each other mentally, spiritually and emotionally in achieving our medically prescribed "ideal" weight which we determine by by consulting with our primary care physicians.

There is a hierarchy of importance though regarding overall health. For me that is spiritual, mental, emotional and physical in that order.

That is not set in stone mind you. That is just the model I am using to stay healthy and connected and working.

Overall life balance is needed though and that is a constant conversation and series of compromises and negotiations so to speak with God yes, but also with the people that care about you and respect you as a person.
