Each morning is a fresh start...
Lord, help me to choose wisely...
"It's foolish to ask God to direct your steps, if you aren't willing to move your feet."
I want to be healthier than my parents were at my age. I want to be able to know that I tried my best to honor God by taking care of the body he's given me.
I need to lose 40-45 lbs. but more importantly, I need to retrain my mind to think of health vs. weight. If I lose weight just to fit into smaller clothes, it won't last.
I am reading practical articles here at Sparkpeople, and asking God for wisdom in the area of portion control, when my body signals true hunger, and when it signals that I'm done. I grew up in the clean-your-plate era, which I am learning to overcome.
I've been married for almost 37 years to my college sweetheart...a mother, grandmother, sister, niece, and friend. I love photography, reading, camping, music, history, and travel.

Stopping by my friends' pages to see how they are doing!
I read once how it does you no good for God to steer a car if it isn't moving.
Don't you love the Lord and His wisdom!
I just realized we share the same fav food: Chinese.
Just like the Bible says. All things are permissable. Not all things are beneficial.
