Hi - my name is Paula. I joined Spark People a couple of months ago, and I'm also participating in a fitness program, including weight watchers, at work. I've lost about 12 pounds since the first of September. I'm 58 so I know it will be slower and I'm okay with that. I believe strength in all areas of our lives comes from the power of Jesus Christ in us, and look forward to participating with this group to relate my life in Christ with living a healthier lifestyle. I'm an RN, and work part-time in OB, and travel some with my husband who is retired. I have 4 children - all adults/3 are married, and two precious granddaughters, ages 2 and 14 (the 14 year old is my step daughter's child). I also have two dogs.
I've been participating in some challenges and find them very motivating. I feel tracking is huge for me - I learn so much about food, and about MYSELF.
I Cor 6:12 Everything is permissible (allowable and lawful) for me; but not all things are helpful (good for me to do, expedient and profitable when considered with other things). Everything is lawful for me, but I will not become the slave of anything or be brought under its power.
