MY BODY - HIS TEMPLE

Hi, I'm Kathryn. I've finally accepted the fact that losing weight is no longer the easy process it used to be when I was younger. The combination of menopause and mid-life crisis threw me into a depression . I turned to food for comfort and the pounds started to creep up. Initially I was looking for the perfect diet or "magic pill" to lose the weight.

Hi, I'm Kathryn. I've finally accepted the fact that losing weight is no longer the easy process it used to be when I was younger. The combination of menopause and mid-life crisis threw me into a depression . I turned to food for comfort and the pounds started to creep up. Initially I was looking for the perfect diet or "magic pill" to lose the weight. Thankfully a health crisis brought me to my senses and with much support and prayers I got on track with a healthy lifestyle. Been a member of SP since Aug 2008 and it has been a blessing. It helps me stay on course from one day to the next and gives me the accountability which was sorely lacking before.. Each morning I say to myself "How can I honor God today?" Part of that requires that I put healthy food in my body (His Temple) and keep as fit as I can. I find that the more my perspective and attitude line up with His will the easier it is to live a healthy life - but I have a long way to go still.

UPDATE Jan 2015

I've been all over the map in the past 6 1/2 years. I knew that changing bad habits and establishing a healthy lifestyle would not be easy, but I did not think it would be this hard. The hardest part for me is staying motivated. I need accountability - that's the best thing about SP, it will keep me honest. I have slacked off and my weight and health have suffered but there is no option but to get back on track or fall farther behind ( and I've got way too much "behind" already)

We live in a wonderful world that is
full of beauty, charm and adventure.
There is no end to the adventures that we can have
if only we seek them with our eyes open.

If you want to feel rich,
just count all of the things you have that money can't buy.

Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves
to recognize how good things really are.
I am leaving tomorrow for my vacation,so I am wishing you
a Happy Easter and a healthy Holiday,

Thank you so much for the spark goodie. Wish I could say I am feeling better, but i'm not. Still coughing, sneezing. Called the Doctor's again today, if they don't call soon, will probably go to a medical unit. So tired of being sick and tired.

Hope you are having a nice day!!

The little victories are great too - when I first started doing p90x a few years ago, I couldn't do a chin-up, touch my toes or do push-ups on my toes. Now I can do all those things plus a few more.

Kickingit, it's actually been two years, and as far as websites, Sparkpeople has been the main one, although I have used Myfitnesspal to track my food, and Pact (not a website actually but an app) to keep myself motivated to track my food and eat my fruits and veggies - I make a little money on the side with that one!

Choose your goal and keep your eye on it. Never give up.
Perhaps you will need to change your plan
and approach you goal from a different direction, but don't quit.
Keep thinking. Keep re-planning. Keep going.

Determination gives you the resolve to keep going in
spite of the roadblocks that lay before you.

I've seen enough things to know that if you just keep on going,
if you turn the corner, the sun will be shining. emoticon

Thanks for reading my blog on my Cruise vacation,and for your comment.
it won't happen again not with these people not even my DH.
