I've been logging for a couple of months now...trying to refocus myself and change some bad habits. I knew that it was time. I had been studying the Word about renewing our minds. I'm a pastor's wife, have a full time job, and am very involved in ministry. My husband had a stroke in February, I have "adopted" an adult daughter on the autism spectrum, and I have lupus. I have a lot of stress in my life. I realized last week that I kept putting my stress level as low in the weight tracker section. That's ridiculous!!! I have been under a lot of stress most of this calendar year. I remember reading an article here on Spark people that mentioned losing weight is stressful for your body. My poor body doesn't know what has hit it...but it is slowing changing. I think because of taking it slow, I'm making the changes at a pace that my body is able to keep up with. I'm not trying to be the hare racing to the finish line...I'm the tortoise, taking my time, but being slow and steady, and I will be sure to cross the finish line.
