He guides me, everyday. His love is so amazing. I could not do anything apart from God.





I am wearing a size 12 pants and a medium sized shirt. My old pants are a size 24. Wow! Praise Him!





With the help of Almighty God, I can make it to the finish line. 150...here I come!



I have 14 pics in my gallery

Uncovering Marilyn

I have battled my weight on and off for the past 21 years. This issue is now grown up enough to be released. I have lost 90 pounds, thanks to God. I have 22 more pounds to lose. The weight has been an excuse to stay in the shadows. I don't want to be in the shadows of life, anymore. I wasn't created for the shadowy life. So, I'm moving more. I'm eating better. Well, I'm learning how to eat. You see, I kinda hate food. I hate what it has done to me. So, whenever possible, I boycott it. But, my ...
I have battled my weight on and off for the past 21 years. This issue is now grown up enough to be released. I have lost 90 pounds, thanks to God. I have 22 more pounds to lose. The weight has been an excuse to stay in the shadows. I don't want to be in the shadows of life, anymore. I wasn't created for the shadowy life. So, I'm moving more. I'm eating better. Well, I'm learning how to eat. You see, I kinda hate food. I hate what it has done to me. So, whenever possible, I boycott it. But, my body rejects my attempts to starve and holds onto all of my reserves, resulting in little to no weight loss during these times. So, I am learning how to eat. I am learning about portions and measuring cups. I am learning about nutrients and balance. I want balance in my life, but I guess I thought that I needed to lose the weight first and then find balance. It doesn't work that way. There is a really adventerous and spontaneous and engaging person underneath all of my layers (physical and emotional). I want to see her re-emerge while I am still on this planet. God is able and I trust that He will help me reach this goal.

We have some things in common in regards to our feelings about food. It's hard for some people to believe that I don't really care for food but I'm overweight. Bingeing on the wrong things was my worst downfall, that is why I decided to go with the 6wbmo plan. You have to eat and eat often. Good luck to you.

Saint Louis Spark People Rally-Please Come!!!

OK, so how's the MO Botanical Garden on July 17 at 9 a.m. sound? We could meet at the Visitor's Center and walk around for 2 hours-there's a 'Health Fair' going on the same day, too! If you're a resident of St. Louis County or St. Louis City, admission is FREE before noon-otherwise it's $8 for adults...the place opens at 9 a.m., so it wouldn't be quite as hot then, but we could do 10 as well...lots to do/see here & plenty of walking exercise & time to get to know fellow STL 'Sparkers'!!!

Hope to see you there-families welcome-check out the Botanical website for admission pricing
