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!

"The purpose of life is to matter, to count, to stand for something; to have it make some difference that we lived at all."--Leo Rosten

If the only way to make life worth living is to make every day count for something truly special, why do so many people allow so many days to slip slide away, inadvertently permitting the best of times to pass them by as well? Good question; yet the answers are never so easy.

More likely than not, they don't see themselves as a person who comes out on top; a winner who deserves to live life to its fullest. Yet that is precisely what our Creator made each and every one of us to be. A winner worthy of enjoying the greatest treasures life offers up daily. None of us, not even one of us, is incapable of coming out on top.

But we need to face the music here; the only way we're going to make our lives everything we have ever imagined they could be and should be is to stop counting those days as they pass us by and instead start making the days count — right here and right now. We need them to count for something super extraordinary, something super sensational and something that words alone can never express.

Time after time, the only difference between living your life the way it was meant to be lived and living a life that consistently comes up short is whether or not you really made a difference. So why not make that big difference by making a difference in the way you utilize your days, starting right now?
