If I can make it to the top of a mountian, I can do anything!
I live my life for others around me. My passion is to work for children like this in Africa.
I was told I was a bit too heavy when this picture was taken. I'd like to look that 'heavy' again!
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
A Brief Summary
Growing up, I was thin. I never had to worry about my weight, because I could eat anything and not gain even an ounce.
Then, 18 happened. I started having thyroid problems, and since then my weight has gone up to 210 then back down to 150, then up, then down, then up again... Because I never had to worry about healthy eating to stay thin, I didn't know how to handle the yo-yo weight fluctuations.
Oh, and I'm blessed with a mom who is Ukranian and a dad who loves to eat, so there was always plenty of really really good, but not good for you, food growing up.

I've been on Spark People for a while now, and for a while I was doing great for working out, but lacking on the nutritious eating side of things.
Each day I read posts, and write a few (though my computer doesn't always behave so I lose some). Through that, I am getting more and more motivated each day.
Today, I also had someone comment on one of my blog entries and another person write a comment on my spark page. That, more than anything to date has motivated me. Why? Because it really showed me that I'm not lost in cyber space and that people actually do care about me and my goals. Thank you.
Short term goal: reach 170 pounds by end of June.
Medium goal: run a half marathon October 1.
Long term goal: get to 150 pounds.
I was born and raised in the beautiful country of CANADA.
I want to thank Jesus for coming into my life and dramatically changing it for the better. He has done nothing but strengthen my character and show me love and grace. THANK YOU!
