A Glimpse of My Inner Goddess
My Best Reasons to Transform!

I am transforming my life and a big part of that is my return to healthy and sane care of my body. I joined sprakpeople at the beginning of this journey, in January 2007. I was active in the beginning, but my attention shifted elsewhere, and I have spent much of this past year learning about my core issues, self esteem and ingrained self-defeating beliefs (this is too hard, I always give up, what if no one likes me once I've lost weight, what if men begin looking at me...these thoughts were based in negative experiences and sexual abuse in my youth.)
As I face my life from a new perspective this spring, I am thrilled to report that I am still here, weaving my new life, and telling my story. I may not have lost my 100 lbs in the first year, in fact I have regained some of my starting weight. However, I have learned volumes about myself, my body, and the joy and value of living well.
If you are discouraged, and feel you have lost your way, please remember that the whole point of losing weight, of regaining your health, is to experience YOU at your best. YOU are beautiful, right now, as you are. YOU are powerful, and capable of creating your life anew. YOU are here, reading this on Spark People, because you know yourworth and are standing up to claim it and proclaim it. We're in this together, so keep smiling, and feel free to stop by and chat about it. I'll be here :)
My ultimate goal is to attain a state of health and balance. I would like to lose 100 lbs and attain a state of strength, flexibility, and vital energy. My long term goal is to reach 125 lbs by April 20, 2009.

Merry meet! I live in the gorgeous Ozarks, located in Southern MO. I am currently pursuing degrees in Biology and English, with an ultimate goal of marrying my metaphysical spiritual studies with quantum physics/quantum biology.
I adore outdoor activities, and hope to return to canoeing, spelunking, and exploring Native MO as my health and energy improve. I am into sustainble living practices, metaphysical studies, and earth based spirituality. I home school my 4 amazing kiddos.
You should know I am a self proclaimed geek, I adore Monty Python and Gary Larson, and I truly believe the answer to all things must be '42!'
I love my spirtual family, Unity, where I study such concepts as the Law of Attraction with a group of people as dedicated to transforming their life and living well as I am.
