****************************************
****

I don't always know where I'm going as I don't always follow the given path, but I know I am wonderfully and fearfully made. I can not fail with Christ! My mantra is I CAN and WILL BE VICTORIOUS. You CAN too!

I've been a sparkler here for about 6 years now. It's been quite the journey. I started out at 170 my highest weight ever and I was ready to do whatever it took to lose the weight. (healthy ways) After a couple of years I came so close to my goal weight of 130 lbs. I felt on top of the world, but it was short lived. I have struggled with Binge Eating Disorder for years and it reared its ugly head and I all but gave up. Needless to say I have regained all of the weight back + a few more. I've also struggled with Fibromyalgia and arthritis the past 2 and a half years making it very difficult to exercise.But I believe through Christ I can do ALL things. I can and will overcome!

My biggest accomplishment is that on February 29,2008 I quit smoking and with that came the gift of being able to breathe. That gift of fresh air opened the door to this journey!

I came to Spark People lonely, sad, frustrated with myself about the shape I had let myself get into. I didn't know a thing about fitness and nutrition, but in the years that I have been here I have learned a lot. I might not always follow the path that leads to victory, but I try where I can from veering too far off. And even when I seem to be falling from a cliff...He is there to catch me and get me back on track.....and so are my wonderful SP friends! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support!

Again: I CAN and WILL succeed and so CAN YOU!!

Reading is my favorite past time. I love The Yada Yada Prayer Group Series by Neta Jackson!! I also enjoy Historical fiction.

I enjoy drinking coffee; iced coffee during summer and lattes during the cooler months.

My favorite way to work out is walk. I live in a downtown area where there are gorgeous walking trails through the parks.

I had a sweet miniature dachshund named Lucky who recently passed away (Nove 2013) I miss him so much as he was my walking buddy. I also love cats and have one named Gabbie! She really fits her name as she is quite vocal!

I LOVE Christian Contemp Music. My favorite is Tenth Avenue North and JJ Heller. I do enjoy other types of music too, alternative, country, classical, rock!

Hello Cynthia! I'm coming to your page from the Fit & Fabulous Fall Challenge. I read your earlier post about having difficulties with negative thinking and it really struck a chord with me. I wanted to reach out to you and offer support while you are struggling. I have been there before. I used to have a lot of difficulty with negative thinking due to my anxiety but I have slowly gotten better. It's very hard work but you can do it! Know that I am here if you are having difficulty or need to chat. emoticon

I'm glad the massage is helping you. Do watch some of the videos on YouTube by Luo Dong as he is a Chinese spiritual healer who does massage on the street in New York. (He has a job as a pizza delivery man). He says he never charges money for his healing as it is a spiritual devotion for him. I have been reading about Chinese massage and how if you have illness in one area of your body, it impacts all of the body. I do believe that we have energy channels and an aura.

BTW, I see u have gotten those "Beautiful Woman Awards" like I get. You do know that they are against Spark policy, as they have posted about them a number of times, since they are "chain mail" as they say to PASTE to 8 other people.

Beautiful Person Award"

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Person Award!! emoticon

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 people who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out.

Again, Congratulations Beautiful!
