I'm from Texas and starting this fitness journey in October, 2011.

I will keep this verse in mind as I move ahead: "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."

I enjoy reading and games such as sudoku, scrabble, 42, and spider solitare. I'm a fan of the Baylor U. Lady Bears.

Glad to have you visit my page.

    "...the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!”
