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!

emoticon Keep those dreams and wishes close to your heart. Especially on this wishful Wednesday. After all, wishes can fuel your motivation and determination. Who knows, one of your wishes may soon become a reality!

Wishing you a Wednesday that is wonderful!

Praying for you and your son....take him on a bumpy ride. He's too comfortable where he is.

WooHoo, it's Tuesday! How thankful I am for all the truly wonderful Spark friends, especially YOU! Living out here in a small-town, rural area, people are not quick to befriend anyone. So your friendship means a lot to me.

True friendship opens our hearts and gives us the courage to show what we keep hidden from the rest of the world.

Here's to the start of a marvelous new week....be mindful of your thoughts because they will determine not only this Monday, but your entire week.

(coffee can sure help start off a Monday too, so I brought you a cup emoticon )
