I'm 34 years old. I have 3 children: 2 sons in middle school and a little girl whom I'm home-schooling for personal reasons. She's doing 1st grade work on ABC Mouse right now. I'm happily married to a wonderful man (abiggidy) who is also eating healthy and getting fit. I've lost over 100 lbs so far and have about 50+ more lbs to go and then want to maintain while still getting rid of body fat and gaining muscle. I've worked so hard that my weights at home are getting too light for some activities and I can't afford bigger ones right now because our family always comes first. 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! Fit 4 Jesus, Fit 4 Life!!!! Sometimes, it's okay to gain WEIGHT (wellness, encouragement, inspiration, guidance and helpful thoughts).

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: it's been a roller coaster....

My Program:
Eat clean, be active, choose JOY--Jesus first, Others second, Yourself (myself) last....
I choose to eat a grain and dairy free diet at least 250 days of the year (started mid-July) due to my blood type (O+, but both O blood types do this) stores grains and dairy as fat. I metabolize healthy fats and protein very well!

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 love Christian romance books. Love Inspired books are my favorite because they are really easy to read and I can read one and a half a day if I'm not doing anything that day. Not that I've read that much lately...

    Hi Liz!
    Thanks for the veggie tray goodie! I hope you had an awesome Christmas with your family!
    Boy has this week flown by! I'm catching up on SP, I wasn't very active on the team, but was behaving! Lol! Stayed on track much better than last year.
    Wishing you a happy, healthy New Year!

    Taking chances on opportunities, even if they aren’t right for you, gives you a clearer picture of where you want to go with your life and career.
