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 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!

“When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but creatures of emotion.”— Dale Carnegie

People need to feel valued and loved. I pray this is how I make my friends feel.

Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received-only what you have given: a full heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage.--Saint Francis of Assisi
