Slowly but Surely

I joined SP in May of 2011 to get out of a rut of poor food choices and too little exercise (resulting in a slow but steady weight gain of about 10-15 pounds over several years). I am Catholic, and realized that I was not treating my body as a temple of the Holy Spirit. I don't want to become obsessive about the numbers on my scale or clothing tags, but I do want to be a good steward of this body God has given me.

I lost about 15 pounds between May and December of 2011, and then lost my motivation, and gained around 5 of it back. By October 2013 I was within a few pounds of my goal weight, and then got pregnant! So for now I'm trying to have a healthy pregnancy, and worry about my goal weight after that. My lifetime goal is to stay around my final weight, but more importantly, to make sure I get good nutrition and an adequate amount of exercise each day. I still struggle a great deal with choosing healthy foods over junk food, and that's definitely something I need to overcome. Though since I got pregnant, I haven't been craving sweets like I used to. I hope this stays with me!

Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

What are some things that you are doing in your life that will make you proud in a day from now, a month from now, a year from now, or a decade from now? If you don't have anything that you have done in your life in your past now is the time to change it, and to live for creating the best possible future for yourself while you still can. A very important part of living life is planning it. Be happy with your life story.

There are times when we feel we have no control over things, but we do. We have control over our attitude, how we view things and what will guide our choices. Life, it is all about choices we make. And how the direction of our lives comes down to the choices we choose. The choice to do as one may wish and as one wants remains with the individual, YOU.

May your today be filled with wise choices.
