    Spirituality and LapBand ?

    I am religion by saying this I mean i try to live my life to be pleasing to God by praying daily studying the word and loving my brothers and sisters etc..... I also believe my body is my temple the one and only body that God has blessed me with so it's my duty to keep it strong pure/ healthy in the natural as well on the spiritual side. This is why I choose not to smoke drink and to eat the best way I can and to exercise now I did not always treat my body the best thats why I ended up with the lapband but with everything you do in this life it's a process of changing your life in which starts with changing your thought process

    2.6 lbs. up after holidays

    Yes it's always hard to find balance during the holidays I do find myself letting down my guard during the holidays but remember its only temporary and this is my new life so this year I made sure I had healthy foods to eat and worked out all during the holidays on thanksgiving morning I was at the gym on Christmas Eve and the day after Christmas I was at the gym on New Year's Eve and day I was at the gym a great way to start my new year I learned if I want different results I have to do different things
