Holiday treats and parties have sure taken a toll on my waistline. Over indulgence is a problem for me throughout the year, especially with my low levels of exercise due to Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. It seems to catch me off guard. Every day my pants grow a little tighter until one night I have a dream my pajamas are too tight. I don’t feel good about myself and don’t want to go out to parties or social functions.
Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit, and we need to treat them as such. For me, it is starting today with forgiveness of my behavior and acceptance of who I am. As a child of God I know that today is a new day, and there is time for change. So each week I will begin making small changes, until I see the results I want. I have a lot of work left to accomplish and I need a strong healthy body with a great self image to make the progress I need.
This week I will drink at least 8 glasses of water every day, and at meal times when I give thanks for my food, I will ask God to help me be mindful of what I am eating. Join me in this challenge and let me know how you are doing. God bless you.
