    The sin of gluttony

    oh my...it is a sin you know, to not take care of the body that God gave us..I've read that it is akin to defiling the temple..because after all, our body is the temple that the Holy Spirit inhabits..

    Oh boy..I need some help on this front..I gained 5 pounds after thanksgiving and starting Sunday I am going to be returning to my weight watchers program and getting this ole body of my back into condition as it pleases the Lord..anyone want to join me??

    I have a goal of losing between 15 and 20 pounds...

    I have "decorated" my temple with a couple of tattoos and body piercing at one time or another. I have more than one hole in my ear. LOL

    My mother told me all about the whole temple thing when I told her I wanted a tattoo. Little did she know that I had already gotten it.

    I did ask God for forgiveness for doing it. There is one tattoo that I want to cover up with something else. I guess I will have to really pray about that since it isn't the right thing to do to the temple.

    Also, I need to lose some weight. PCOS is killing my body. I was really fit before it took a toll on my body. I need to get back to the gym.

    I'm in! I started last week...going to the gym three mornings a week at 5:30 (Yikes!) That's the only time I can go though really. Dh leaves for work by 6:30 or 7. He offered to stay home until 7 three mornings each week so I can go and work out...come home and shower...and he'll take care of Allie for me if she is up before I'm done! What a sweetie! I'm not way overweight...but I would really like to loose about 10 to 15 pounds. We are going on a CRUISE in February! Woo Hoo! So that is some extra incentive to shed a few pounds. I've just gotten lazy...shame on me!

    So...accountability partners is what I need! Let's keep in touch about it!
    God Bless...
    I can do all things through Him that gives me strength

    well, alrighty!!!
    So, I'll start a new thread every Sunday and you all can check in with your weigh-in (you can add it on which ever day is your typical weigh in day) and anything else you want to share..work out schedule, food intake, questions, cries for support, helpful hints, etc..

    Let's get healthy together!

    "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed!" Proverbs 16:3.
    Just wanted to offer some words of encouragment! I'm sure you will all do great! I spent two years on a motivational lecture curcuit discussing wellness and health. I can tell you one of the most powerful tools in finding optimal health is to have an accountability partner!
    Have you read 'Body by God?' It's a great book, with a well rounded, practical approach to health and nutrition. I'm using some of this material for a new series I am scheduled to begin in Jan.

    I'm in. I actually started this past week. I'm on WW too and I made it thru Thanksgiving and Friday and a 20 hour car ride with very little trouble. It was great. I did not plan as well for our return trip (another 20 hour car ride)so I'll get back on track Monday and I'll adjust my Flex points to reflect 5 days instead of the full 7. My weigh in day is Saturday. My goal is 40 pounds.

    PCOS = Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome

    I too follow weight watchers and have totally gotten off track. I will get back on track tomorrow. I really need to get back to Curves also.


    JCABALLERO13 = TOTAL SLACKER! LOL

    My weigh in is Monday...but, AF just showed up, so I am sure with eating wrong and AF things won't be pretty! I get 24 points a day. I weigh 192 right now, I had been down to 188, but so much for that! My high weight was 210, back in October. Well, 192 is not official, so I will "weigh in" later. LOL. I want to get to 145. I would be happy with being in the 150's though.
