Hello, Blogger Friends and Family!

I know it's been a while since I last posted, but I am slowly coming out of darkness.

Most of you know that I have been struggling with depression since my hubbie went out on the road truck driving a couple years ago. Thankfully a few months ago, he found new work just 15 miles from our house! What a blessing. It is hard work since this is a very busy time for the business, but he is doing great. I am proud of him.

It's like coming out of a gloomy cave. The winter months were especially tough, but God is good, and we see the light and it feels good! I have started exercising and eating better. It's amazing how quickly the body suffers from depression as well. I am off my medication now and my body and mind is healing.

It's weird. The medication is good for depression (in most cases) and some of the symptoms, but it is very hard on the body--rough on the liver and kidneys. When I stopped the medication after a few weeks, my body bounced back to life, like some weight has been lifted from my shoulders that I didn't even realize was there. I don't know all of the medical explanations, I just know that I feel lighter. Of course shedding a few pounds in the process helps!

Lisa's tip of the day: Need a few inches off in time for that pool party or day at the beach? Head to your local health place for body wraps. Remember those? Please treat yourself! Plan on doing at least two or three before you see a big difference. Please make sure to drink lots of water and eat balanced diet as you detox to help rid yourself of those nasty little toxins! You'll be so glad you did! Leave the sugar and eat more vegies! (My reminder as well!)

Remember in our times of trial, God will not desert us!
