Taking it One Day at a Time

At nearly 40 years old it is time for me to really make a change. One that will stick.

I am bound and determined that this is going to be my time. My day. My year.

In my lifetime I was at a fairly normal weight until I was about 19. Since then though, I've only been close to that normal weight again a couple times. The past few years I've managed to lose 20 - 30 lbs and gain it back. Thankfully never going past the "high weight."

Welcome to the SDA team! It's great to have you join our team. I started SP in January almost 2 lbs below my max weight ever, about 6 yrs ago. It's hard to be doing it over, but we can do it!

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you... and that you are not your own? 1 Cor. 6.19 NRSV

"Do not eat the bread of the stingy." Prov. 23.6-7 NRSV

See you at the team! Hope you've having a great Sabble, Lynn

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I did the marathon on my treadmill for the very reason you thought-now mentally I know I've done it. It was a bit earlier than I wanted to do it, but this weekend the family was out of town so I knew I had the morning there all to myself and no interruptions, so I figured, "why not?" I was scheduled for 16 miles and also figured, "get to 16, get tired, stop. If not, keep going." Once I got to 21 I was telling myself, "sure you can quit now-nobody cares and you've passed your goal for the day," then a scene came on in Run Fat Boy Run about "don't be a quitter, Dennis" (the main character), so I figured, well if he doesn't quit, why should I?

Wow, thank you so much! I hope that you will check in and tell me how your HM training is going. A running group is a great idea. Training with others will keep you accountable and also help regulate your mileage. I found a trail running group in VA that I want to check out when we are settled. I have never joined anything like that, but it looks like a lot of fun!

Best of luck and thanks again for all your support!
