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 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!

I think everyone should be told they’re beautiful until they believe it - Unknown

Personally, I feel you cannot hear, "You are beautiful" enough. So I am reminding you today that you truly are beautiful to me. I only ask that you honestly believe it.

Sure hope that you have a Tuesday filled with many memories of being blessed and thankful.

Today I plan on making this my Toss Out Tuesday. I will toss out one item that is clutter, eliminate one unhealthy habit for this week, and toss out one unnecessary time consuming task by saying, "No".
