This is me in 2004 before the weight gain.
My two babies - Baby and Powder
My name is Cheryl and I'm from the Lone Star State. I am a Jesus Freak and proud of it! I have a relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ and it's the best relationship I ever been in!
I started to gain weight during my divorce in 2005. I found out some horrible things about my ex and turn to food. It's already been a little over 4 years and I really haven't put my mind in getting rid of the fat. I'm serious now and with the Lord's and SP help, I can do this! This is the first time in my life that I ever had any type of weight problems. I always maintained my weight, exercised and ate healthy. Time to say good-bye to the fat and hello to a new me! Oh yea!
Another part of my gained weight is due to fibromyalgia. I was injured on the job in 2003. Due to my injuries, I sustained 2 incurable conditions, fibromyalgia and a Srynix. I've been on full disability ever since the accident. Talk about a blow to the gut. I was the type of person who loves to work (workaholic), workout and all the other fun stuff. Now, I am limited to what I can and can't do. Mentally, I feel I can still do the things I used to do, but physically, I'm not able to. This has left me feeling discourage, depress and low self-esteem. I never had any of these feelings before. I never in my life thought at 36 years old, I would be on full disability, slightly overweight, not getting out of the house much and having low moments in my life.
I joined SP last summer. I'm a very outgoing person who loves being around people. I lead 3 amazing teams. Instead of getting rid of the fat, I've been to busy socializing! LOL Time to get serious and turn this over to the Lord!
If it wasn't for my strong faith and trust in Christ, I would be in a much darker state of mind or worse. I am a strong Christian woman who loves the Lord wholeheartedly. I have a wonderful relationship with Him and I know it's He who guides and directs my path. I will serve Him always!
This site has helped me meet my goals, meet new people and give me the encouragement I need.
I pray God will help you meet your goal and may HE be with you!!
Main goal: To get back down to my "regular" size.
Eat healthier, exercise & walk the dogs more and drink plenty of water.
Get rid of the junk, sugars and bad carbs!
I should mention I'm 6'2 without shoes...tall drink of water my grandfather would say. Thank the good Lord for being tall! I don't look as heavy. HA!
The first step was signing up with sparkpeople...check
I will be walking alone or with my dogs. Eat less sweets and bad carbs. Start exercising while watching TV, yoga, walking, start on some weight training and go from there.
Drinking plenty of liquids, eat more fruits, veggies, protein and start taking my vitamins again.
My name is Cheryl and as stated, I'm from Texas.
I'm a strong dedicated Christian woman who has a wonderful relationship with Christ. He's my strength and I know I can ALWAYS count on Him!
I'm a seller on E-bay. My store is called Everlasting Treasure's and More.
I love animals, computer games, audiobooks and movies (Mystery, suspense, thriller & horror)...also love the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evonavich, swimming, the rain, going to church and church events and of course, meeting new people.
I have 3 dogs, one which is a great gaurd dog, along with 2 indoor cats and I feed 3 outdoor strays.
I'm a great listener. Love to help others when I can. I'm a loyal friend.
I have two years of Psychology. After careful consideration, I switched my major to Communication. What can I say? It fit my personality much better. I have over 10 years experience being a DJ for local stations. I also worked in TV. I had a great time and loved my work.
For I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength I need. Philippians 4:13
