My “D-Day”

Well, Folks, it’s finally here! It’s D-Day! No, it’s not June 6th – that’s the day that the world remembers when 156,000 American, British, and Canadian forces landed on the beaches of Normandy, France, starting the effort of the Allied forces to liberate Western Europe from Nazi Germany. That was an amazing “D-Day “- that’s not today. No, this is “my D-Day,” which basically means – I started my diet today! Now – don’t laugh! This may end up being a “day that will live in infamy!” I know, I know – that’s Pearl Harbor Day!” But, this is an important day to me.

Today is the “day” that I made the “deliberate decision” to “do” something that all would “deign” needed. I have “dwelt” most of my adult life “dining” on “desserts,” but I have “deemed” it to be “damaging” my joints and “dampening” my spirits. It has “dragged” me into “depression” so many times. So, it has “dawned” on me that I “don’t” have to “duplicate” my past over and over. I have “discovered” that “darkness” truly does come before the “dawn.” “Despairing” over my past is only “defeat” if I “determine” to continue “dabbling” as before. But I have “deduced” that “dreams” can come true, if I “determine” to “decrease” my intake in order to “develop” healthier habits.

So I pray that food “does” not “dominate” my thoughts and hunger pangs will “diminish” as “days” go by. May I “dream” of new “dresses” and “devote” this time to “deepening” my “desire” to “do” better. May I “discover” the “delight” of eating “dishes” of salads and “drinking” those “delicious” protein shakes. I have no “doubt” that I will be “disheartened” from time to time, but may I “disregard” those feelings of “doom” and gloom, and remember why I “decided” to open this “door” in the first place. I may “depend” on you, my Friends, in the future – to “draw” on your insight and help me “dismiss” “discouragement” that’s “destined” to come.

Thank you in advance, for we are all simply blessed, Courtney
