I feel as though I'm trapped in a dormant shell of a body. There once was a time in my life when I was fun, carefree, and full of energy. I still feel this way inside, but it's slowly fading and no longer expressed outwardly.
My body is causing me to feel unllike my normal self, tired, and moody. I'm not going to blame it solely on child bearing. Especially since my baby is 4yrs old. But that did play a major part in my wieght gain. It was the period at which I stopped caring as much about looks, I began to put my families needs before mine. Then eating, which I've always loved, become what I did for fun, for pleasure, and for me.
Looking back, my unhealthy lifestyle began in childhood and exercise was something we did in gym class at school. Since I've always eaten based on what I could afford and what I enjoyed. Not what would meet my nutritional needs. Only in my late teens did I start learning about healthy eating. Now in my late twenties will I begin appling what I've learned and seeking more knowledge. I desire to learn and exhibit a healthy lifestyle for the seek of my children's health so they can a have a fullfilling life.
But it seems like the more I try to diet and exercise the more wieght I gain. Craziness, right? So I figured that my greatest problem has been not having a plan or goal for healthy lifestyle. Just sort of drafting though life not planning for much but doing what seemed right or what came natural. But now "Thank God" for great tools and resources like Spark People I can plan for success! Even more I've found that I work well when I have to account for what I do, so Spark is perfect.
Although I know this proceed is going to be hard-work, I'm prepared. Now starts the Metamorphosis and by spring, I'll be a vibrant butterfly!!!
My goal is to lose weight and keep it off by adapting to a healthylife! To restore my body's health so that I may live the abundant life Jesus provided for me.
Plan is to do alot of walking and menu planning. Close the kitchen at 8:00pm.(Dr. Oz idea)

Just dropping by to say goodmorning.
I pray that all is well with you today and every day.
My confession for today is also my "Today's Bible Verse":
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:13,14 / KJV

I just opened my mail and found a wonderful surprise, a new membership to Letís Walk.
Welcome, Welcome, Welcome. Having members that are willing to work hard and go the extra mile, are necessary for a successful weight loss team. More importantly, going the extra mile is vital to your health and future. Itís not so easy to bypass the tempting snacks that are lying around on the kitchen table, or to push yourself to exercise when your favorite show is about to begin. I know. Itís a constant battle for me. I get through it with the support of caring members. As a leader Iíll be here to support you and provide any help that you might need. Together we can make it. God bless and stay healthy. Marlene
