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)

    We live in a wonderful world that is
    full of beauty, charm and adventure.
    There is no end to the adventures that we can have
    if only we seek them with our eyes open.

    If you want to feel rich,
    just count all of the things you have that money can't buy.

    Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves
    to recognize how good things really are.
    I am leaving tomorrow for my vacation,so I am wishing you
    a Happy Easter and a healthy Holiday,

    Thank you so much for the spark goodie. Wish I could say I am feeling better, but i'm not. Still coughing, sneezing. Called the Doctor's again today, if they don't call soon, will probably go to a medical unit. So tired of being sick and tired.

    Hope you are having a nice day!!
