I'm Amber, I joined sparkpeople in 2009 but didn't stay with it, my life was full of turmoil and I was in a major depression after my only child, Adam, died playing the "choking game". I'm back now and ready to start over and get to be fit and healthy like I was working on when my son was alive. My son was my biggest cheerleader and I believe he still is just in a different form so now I rely on my workout partner, the best sister in the whole world to work out with me and encourage me. I wish everyone success in their journey to better health.

I disabled my food tracker because I'm using the bodybugg and have to account for my nutrition in their system in order for the machine to give accurate readings and don't want to have to input my food two times a day. I have left my fitness tracker open so I can have a weekly/monthly/yearly total for fitness minutes but I haven't been consistent in the last four months of 2011 of entering minutes because I enter the fitness minutes daily in my bodybugg to get accurate readings and I have to enter my minutes in noexcuseworkouts.com for my challenge minutes so adding them here is an added chore. The bonus for entering here is I can see my weekly/monthly/yearly total where I can't on the other two sites so I will try to be diligent in 2012.

The challenges are very motivating and I'm so very grateful for the people I have met along the way and for the people who put them together and the people that encourage and motivate one another.

I don't know if my weight would have continued to drop while sitting on the couch for 7 months healing (to date) without the challenges and working towards getting fitness minutes and keeping good nutrition habits. I'm very grateful for the 5% challenges and all of the support from the A Team.


If you need support, please let me know.

Peace, love, light, and blessings,
Amber, Adam's Mommy Forever

    Hello! HUGS! Hope you have a blessed week! How are things going? I love the quotes of Corrie Ten Boom. Here is one quote and the site to brighten your day. HUGS! Jenny

    "When a Christian shuns fellowship with other Christians, the devil smiles. When he stops studying the Bible, the devil laughs. When he stops praying, the devil shouts for joy."

    Mark 12:30And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
    31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. K.J.V. in Public Domain

    This Bible passage has been such a blessing for me and I wanted to share it with you!

    Isaiah 40 :28Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
    29He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
    30Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
    31But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. K.J.V. Inpublic domain.
    Isa. 40 :28Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
    29He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
    ...31But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. K.J.V. Inpublic domain.
