{Faithfully Fit} The beginning...

There is a song by Lincoln Brewster, Today Is The Day, where one of the verses goes, "Today is the day You have made I will rejoice and be glad in it." I love that line and I have been working towards taking that same concept into every aspect of my life... even my body.  

This is my body, you (and I) have made, I will rejoice and be glad in it! 

Because I am small framed, most people do not think nor believe that I face body image and health / weight issues. But I do.  Many cannot tell by looking at me, but within the last year I have gained 4+ pant sizes.  I say 4+ because after growing out of that 4th size up, I decided to not buy any more jeans the next size up and instead to just keep my zipper unbuttoned and use a maternity Bella band.  Yup... that's me!

I made a choice to work towards making myself healthy again and give up the maternity clothing help... especially since my youngest will be 3 soon and I cannot use "baby fat" as an excuse anymore.  
Here I am, exposing my bodily truths to who knows who... maybe this will help me stay motivated.  Someone may actually be reading this and the change I make may just help them to make their own.  

I started a new Facebook page, Faithfully Fit, to kind of track my progress, allow others to post their own and to just add things that may help me (and you) with the much needed motivational side of staying fit.  After all, it is our responsibility:

1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
