Another Sunday, another call from my brother in Ohio with updates on my Mom. She's in a nursing home, because the level of care she's needing now is beyond our capabilities. The main reason for this is the years she spent not eating right, not exercising, not controlling her weight, not taking care of her diabetes. Now I catch myself acting so much like her, and I do NOT want that! At the age of 78, my Mom can no longer walk, can no longer control her bodily functions. She has mild dementia which seems to be getting worse. My gosh - what is wrong with me, that I can see how she is now, and know the main reasons for it, and still want to eat all the wrong things, still want to rebel against the exercise I know I need? I am determined, I WILL stick to a proper diet and exercise. With the help of God and my friends and family, I will. I will.
