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.

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)
Achieve a normal BMI ; make exercise a daily habit; control binge eating and get off of BP medication.
Winter 5% Weight Loss Challenge for 2015
Meal planning is the cornerstone of my program. I use the food tracker to help me stay in my calorie range. Exercise includes Strength Training and cardio 5-6 days per week. Stress reduction techniques to avoid binging.
I am a transplanted New Yorker now living in FL. Eager to pursue a new career in health and wellness.
Favorite book is The Bible. I love music, reading and learning to live calmly and peacefully in the techno-crazy 21st century.
Ever mess up and can't fix your mistake Only have one friend, cause they're too hard to make Ever feel alone, by yourself in the world sit in bed at night as your brain starts to twirl ever been hurt so bad that you can't recover no one to talk to not a friend sister or brother all you got left to do is pray pray for a better way. cause when life gives you trouble, what can you do? pray that god sends an angel to you. cause if you had an angel to brighten your smile sit and talk to you once and a while imagine your problems disappear if only a friend would appear so pray, pray for a better way, it's all you got left to do pray God sends an angel to you. you are one of my angel,Thank you.
