"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!" ~ Philippians 4:13

Hi, everyone! I am a blob, yes, a blob, but I intend on changing that. I started on SparkPeople about 6 years ago and lost 36 pounds over time. Then, some very difficult things happened in my life and I stopped exercising / eating well and gained the weight back plus another 4 pounds.

A few months ago, I decided I needed to find myself in many ways. So, in December, I started the "Daniel Plan" with my Bible study group (it involves Bible, fitness, healthy eating, and more). My friends there have been encouraging me in multiple ways. I am now exercising daily and changing my diet. I lost 29 pounds in the first three months!

I came back here in hopes of meeting more like minded people and working as a team to better health. I'm looking forward to meeting many of you in your health journeys! Peace to you!

    `*♥☆ Having positive body image
    isn't believing your body
    It is believing your body
    IS GOOD,
    regardless of how it looks.
    It isn't thinking, you are beautiful,
    It is knowing, you are MORE THAN BEAUTIFUL!
    It is UNDERSTANDING that your body
    is an instrument for your use,
    not an ornament to be admired.

    Lets keep sparking and get moving. Sometimes it takes a slide backwards to get going again strong. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
