Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny. —Lao-Tze
Hello Michelle, welcome from me also. I think it's awesome that you want to create the most healthy temple you can for the Lord. God will certainly bless your efforts. Congrats on joining SP. I'm sure you're going to love it here!
The Lord bless you and keep you, The Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you, The Lord lift His countenance upon you and give you peace. Num 6:24-26
Welcome to the team, Michelle. My husband is the same way, but understands that I need to lose weight.
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream." Mark Twain

I'm new and thought I'd intro myself here also. My name is Michelle and I'm a pastor's wife. My husband is awesome and makes me feel like I don't even need to lose weight. He's sweet that way:)
I have 7 children and I homeschool 6 of them. I did homeschool all 7 but just had one graduate (YIPPEEEEE).
I retained 10 lbs with each of my birth children...and apparently 10lbs for each of my adopted children because I'm about 80 lbs bigger than my pre-pregnancy weight (I have 1 child with the Lord, so I'm really a mother of 8).
I love the Lord and for the first time in my life, I feel motivated to lose weight. I think this is totally God. He's shown me new things about myself and given me some motivating goals, that in the past I wouldn't have cared about. I want to please him with my life, including my eating habits.
I don't want my life to be focused on dieting or food. I want it to be focused on Him. So I'm going to nip this weight problem in the bud.
