    The deep breathing in Yoga puts me to sleep. Every. Time. I gave up on it. I love Tae Bo though. To each their own. 🙂

      Hi Heather~ I agree, but I dare say you couldn’t go to sleep in Hot Yoga. All you can think about is how hot it is and how much longer you have to stay in the room. LOL. However, I did find it challenging and rewarding because I stayed in the room the whole time and it was something very different for me.

    My thoughts are all over the place with this article. First, I am so very proud of the example you are showing to each and every one of us.
    Second, this is not just about weight loss or healthy living, this is about embracing every aspect of our lives for the goodness God has planned for us. Once we grasp the fact that God is our audience first and foremost, we can then move into shinning brightly for others to see.

    You are an example of courage and perseverance like none other.

    Sparkle on my friend, sparkle on!

    Love your post. I have always struggled with my weight. Good for you on the loss!

  6. You go, GIRL! God has been teaching me a lot about my weight. I’m not having much success losing weight at my age, but God is telling me that my job is to watch what I eat, not be perfect; exercise to get healthy, not to be a certain size, and to find my beauty in Him. Treating my body like a temple doesn’t mean making it my idol as I have in the past in my efforts. Balance is the key for me.

      HI Jennifer! I agree with everything you said. This is exactly what it is about..just being the healthiest I can be physically, spiritually and emotionally 🙂 Thanks for sharing your wisdom!

    It took me a long time to figure that I was disgracing the holy temple too when I wasn’t taking care of my body. Thank goodness for God’s patience with all of us as we learn and grow.

    So excited for you and your awesome year! May you continue to be blessed as you seek to put God first!
