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!

And always IGNORE the doubters & unhealthy examples that
that want to fee your mind.

YOU are worth more than you realize!! emoticon

Thanks for stopping by my "accident status".

I saw my chiropractor this morning. My neck is a little stiff, and I'm a little nervous driving, but otherwise, things are almost normal.

Enjoy your weekend retreat!

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.
