God is working on me and helping me in ways beyond my dreams!

June 2016 - hopefully this year I will just be a "shadow" of my old self - a much thinner shadow! ;)

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!" ~ Philippians 4:13

Hi, everyone! I am a blob, yes, a blob, but I intend on changing that. I started on SparkPeople about 6 years ago and lost 36 pounds over time. Then, some very difficult things happened in my life and I stopped exercising / eating well and gained the weight back plus another 4 pounds.

A few months ago, I decided I needed to find myself in many ways. So, in December, I started the "Daniel Plan" with my Bible study group (it involves Bible, fitness, healthy eating, and more). My friends there have been encouraging me in multiple ways. I am now exercising daily and changing my diet. I lost 29 pounds in the first three months!

I came back here in hopes of meeting more like minded people and working as a team to better health. I'm looking forward to meeting many of you in your health journeys! Peace to you!
