I'm 36 years old. I'm a homeschooling mom of 3 children (a boy in 9th grade, a boy in 7th grade and a girl in 1st grade). I'm happily married to a wonderful man (abiggidy) who is also eating healthy and getting fit. I've lost around 60 pounds and have around 125 more lbs to go and then want to maintain while still getting rid of body fat and gaining muscle. (I had lost 138 lbs but gained quite a bit back.) In this journey to wellness, I've overcome depression/bipolar that I've had since I was 8 yrs old! I've been med-free since Spring 2013 and only take natural supplements!! I've never been happier or felt more alive! It is absolutely true that what you eat affects how you feel!!! The Lord is good and His mercy endures forever!!! Through Him, I can do this! Baby steps all the way works for me!

My Goals:
I aim to be a healthier me...choose better foods, get more fitness...don't go back to my old ways!

2012: Lost 40 lbs
2013: Lost 51 lbs
2014: Lost 23 lbs
2015: Gained 8 lbs.
2016: Lost 8 lbs.
2017: Gained 66 lbs due to stress, not enough exercise and old eating habits

My Program:
I need to get back on a program. We lost one form of income back in 2016 and it's been hard to buy healthier foods for me. Our kids' needs come first and if I have to eat mac and cheese and ramen noodles, then so be it. Lord, help me.

Personal Information:
I live in Michigan. I have a page on Facebook called: Baby Steps to a Brand New Me-Liz Springsteen. My name on Facebook is Liz Springsteen. I check my Facebook every day. If you find me on Facebook and send a request, inbox me and say you are from Spark, or I won't accept you.

Other Information:
I love praise and worship music. I only listen to any kind of Christian music. I read Christian books. I read Christian based self help books, especially Joyce Meyer and Max Lucado books. I'm a member of this website called Good Reads. My husband is an author of a teen/young adult book. We love books in this family!

    emoticon Away in a Manger emoticon

    Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
    The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head.

    The stars in the sky looked down where he lay,
    The little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay.

    The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes,
    But little Lord Jesus no crying he makes.

    I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
    And stay by my cradle til morning is nigh.

    Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
    Close by me forever, and love me, I pray.

    Bless all the dear children in thy tender care,
    And take us to heaven, to live with Thee there.

    emoticon I wish you a very Merry Christmas my friend emoticon
