Slowly but Surely

I joined SP in May of 2011 to get out of a rut of poor food choices and too little exercise (resulting in a slow but steady weight gain of about 10-15 pounds over several years). I am Catholic, and realized that I was not treating my body as a temple of the Holy Spirit. I don't want to become obsessive about the numbers on my scale or clothing tags, but I do want to be a good steward of this body God has given me.

I lost about 15 pounds between May and December of 2011, and then lost my motivation, and gained around 5 of it back. By October 2013 I was within a few pounds of my goal weight, and then got pregnant! So for now I'm trying to have a healthy pregnancy, and worry about my goal weight after that. My lifetime goal is to stay around my final weight, but more importantly, to make sure I get good nutrition and an adequate amount of exercise each day. I still struggle a great deal with choosing healthy foods over junk food, and that's definitely something I need to overcome. Though since I got pregnant, I haven't been craving sweets like I used to. I hope this stays with me!

Stand In Faith

Stand in faith
Even when you canít see your way
Stand in faith
Even when you feel like you canít face another day
Stand in faith
Even when the tears want to flow from your eyes
Stand in faith
Knowing that our God will always provide
Stand in faith
Even when you feel that all hope is gone
Stand in faith
Knowing that He is always there for you to lean on
Stand in faith
Even when you feel like giving up
Stand in faith
Because He is there ... saying, "Just look up"
Stand in faith
Even in those times you feel so all alone
Stand in faith
Hold on and be strong, for He is still on the throne
Stand in faith
Even when itís hard to believe
Stand in Faith
Knowing that He can change your situation, suddenly
Stand in faith
Even in those times you feel itís hard to pray
Stand in faith
And believe that He has already made the way
Faith ... is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen
So stand in faith
Because you already have the victory!

--Evangelist Johnnye V. Chandler

Day by Day

You can do it, I know you can,
I trust and believe in your plan.
It has been processed in your mind,
The ideal path, you shall find.

It's clear that you have what it takes,
You simply won't need any brakes.
Since you have so much passion inside,
This dream of yours will be a special ride.

You can do it, I know you can,
I'm your first and biggest fan.
One more thing I'd like to say,
Enjoy the journey - day by day.

Some people come into our life and we can see they are a gift from God . All it takes are open eyes and ears and the willingness to see miracles. Having friends that inspire us to rise to higher and greater levels is an awesome gift. You are that special friend from God that I am so grateful for.
