MY BODY - HIS TEMPLE

Hi, I'm Kathryn. I've finally accepted the fact that losing weight is no longer the easy process it used to be when I was younger. The combination of menopause and mid-life crisis threw me into a depression . I turned to food for comfort and the pounds started to creep up.

Hi, I'm Kathryn. I've finally accepted the fact that losing weight is no longer the easy process it used to be when I was younger. The combination of menopause and mid-life crisis threw me into a depression . I turned to food for comfort and the pounds started to creep up. Initially I was looking for the perfect diet or "magic pill" to lose the weight. Thankfully a health crisis brought me to my senses and with much support and prayers I got on track with a healthy lifestyle. Been a member of SP since Aug 2008 and it has been a blessing. It helps me stay on course from one day to the next and gives me the accountability which was sorely lacking before.. Each morning I say to myself "How can I honor God today?" Part of that requires that I put healthy food in my body (His Temple) and keep as fit as I can. I find that the more my perspective and attitude line up with His will the easier it is to live a healthy life - but I have a long way to go still.

UPDATE Jan 2015

I've been all over the map in the past 6 1/2 years. I knew that changing bad habits and establishing a healthy lifestyle would not be easy, but I did not think it would be this hard. The hardest part for me is staying motivated. I need accountability - that's the best thing about SP, it will keep me honest. I have slacked off and my weight and health have suffered but there is no option but to get back on track or fall farther behind ( and I've got way too much "behind" already)

Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people stay for awhile, and move our souls to dance.
They awaken us to a new understanding,
leave footprints on our hearts,
and we are never, ever the same.
Happy Valentine's day.

Hi Kathryn,
Thanks for checking in and commenting on my spark page. We are dealing with record snow here in NH and have had to cancel Valentine dinner plans due to yet another blizzard hitting us this weekend!
We'll make a romantic dinner at home instead (and save ourselves a bundle of money.... Lol)
Peace and Grace,
Tim emoticon
