My Journey

I give my opinion in this matter, for this is to your advantage, who were the first to begin a year ago not only to do this, but also to desire to do it. But now finish doing it also, so that just as there was the readiness to desire it, so there may be also the completion of it by your ability.

I found out about SparkPeople about a year ago, and signed up, eager to start eating healthier foods, get fit and lose weight. However, as I have so many times in the past, I gradually abandoned my efforts to adopt a healthier lifestyle and slipped back into my old ways.
But since last year, Iíve gained about 20 pounds. One thing I did discover during my last attempt to lose weight is that itís much more difficult for me to shed the pounds now that Iím in my fifties. As I age, Iím also finding that itís harder to ďget awayĒ with overeating and eating the wrong kinds of food, and with physical inactivity. So part of my motivation now stems from the fact that I simply have no choice: a healthier lifestyle has become imperative.
Another motivating factor is my quest to honour God by honouring this templeó the body He has given meóby living a healthy life and using it to glorify Him. In the Scripture verse above, Paul is appealing to the Corinthians to provide assistance to another congregation, so in that sense, itís a bit out of context here. On the other hand, Paul is trying to get the Corinthians to carry through with a good work they began the year before and turn good intentions into action, which fits my situation.
One thing I failed to do last time was to enlist the help of others, so this time Iím taking the big step of creating a Spark page and soliciting the help of the online community. So hereís to a new day, a new year and a new opportunityÖ
