"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!

    I wanted to give you a special thank you for the support and encouragement you have given me. I posted on my page and the same on a blog for all to see, but I'm trying to give a special thanks to those I first met on SP too.

    I'm using my treadmill and while I'm not liking it I'm hoping I will eventually. In the meantime, I'm just doing it. The weight is still slow to come off, but it is coming off so all is good.

    I'm excited to be boarding the Rebels' plane Sat and while I'll be cheering you on you're going to have to keep up. emoticon I'll wave to you if I see you emoticon and good luck.
    God bless you!
