Autoimmune diseases will not define me. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil 4:13

Member Since: 6/11/2006

Fitness Minutes: 53,861

My Goals:
Get back to high-school weight, regain my confidence and be able to wear sleeveless blouses and dresses. At 59, that will take some...SPARKPEOPLE!

My Program:
Never giving up.
Unbreakable rules:
1. Gym at least 4 times a week.
2. Forgive others and myself when not "perfect." We live a life blessed by grace, so pass it on.
3. Starting in April, weigh every single week. Report even weight gains. Do it.

Personal Information:
Married to the love of my life, who is ultra-skinny and a life-long athlete/gym rat. He is married to a former gym rat wannabe, who became quite ill, and was finally diagnosed with lupus, gluten and lactose intolerance--but that was just the beginning. Then came Crohn's Disease and RA. Health challenges and injuries have kept me home bound much of the time last year, and it is time to START OVER! I am BLESSED BEYOND MEASURE. Sometimes it can be difficult to remember my blessings, and I want to focus on the positive!

Other Information:
I am a Christian, but far from perfect.
God's people, music, books, and art make me happy. I want to serve the Lord Jesus Christ despite my disabilities. I also striving to be more thankful for the challenges I have been given, for they are blessings.

Favorite movies: Moonstruck, The Wings of a Dove, Girl with a Pearl Earring, The Age of Innocence. I like period movies and classic literature and being swept away by a great story!

    I had a good weekend w/ a few snafu's. I had to rush my 9 month old to the ER yesterday. NOT FUN! I had put her in her car seat on the counter, which I have always done and did w/ my son as well. Somehow, she and the car seat flipped over and were on the kitchen floor. What a HORRIBLE feeling! I just held her and continuously apologized to her. I felt so bad! She is fine, however. Thank God! His angels were watching over her! Other than that, it went well. I picked my husband up from the airport this morning. He had been gone for 2 1/2 weeks. I am SO glad to have him back!
    I hope that God Blessed you over your weekend! Thanks for asking! :)

    Thanks for the balloons! On the 2 weight picture, I went to the website that you make the weight gals, don't even remember what it's called, created 2 gals, one for my weight then and another for my goal weight, saved both to my computer, opened both in Photoshop, typed in the weights, saved both on one canvas making it one picture and viola! There it is. =)

    Hello! Your goal and start weight are similar to mine. My family is mostly overweight, and so they think that I am crazy for making the effort to shape up. However, I gained fifteen pounds in the last two years and I know how much better I feel when my gut isn't flopping over the waistband of my pants. Nevermind the muffin top. Anyway it is good to see someone with similar goals. Go girl!

    Thanks, LuluGirl. Just knowing that there is someone out there reading my words will help me keep myself accountable. Today's the day to make good choices and get back on that treadmill!

    Thanks again,
