OLIVEJUICE2 is a SparkPeople Motivator!
The tale of a little spark who turned into a roaring fire:
In June of 2007 I signed up on SparkPeople at the suggestion of one of my best friends. I was looking to get rid of the last 10 pounds that I'd accumulated, which I did. Yay! =}
However, having gone through some emotional stresses (divorce, job loss, moving to another state, etc), I lost more weight than I'd planned...Yikes! =(
I became *really* active on SP in October of 2007 by keeping tabs on my nutrition, & exercise habits. I feel GOOD about myself & my life! Whoo hoooo! I've gained MUSCLE & am becoming FREAKISHLY STRONG! =} WATCH OUT WORLD!
Being nominated as a SparkPeople Motivator the summer of 2008 brought tears of joy to my eyes. It's an HONOR that I cherish and take very seriously!!
~~Thank you to my fellow Sparks who have been so incredibly encouraging & supportive. YOU ROCK (Yes *you*)!! I couldn't have gotten this far without your help!! Sending out lots of BIG hugs & love!!~~
I ENTHUSIASTICLY lead "Sparks Raving M.A.D" (Making A Difference is what we're all about)!! I'm also PROUD to Co-lead "Christian Vegetarians & Vegans" ("Yay God!"), "Lambeau Field HQ" (GO PACK GO!), "CHOCOLATE LOVERS UNITE"(What? It *is* a food group!!) & a wee bit CRAZY to Co-lead "SLIGHTLY SKEWED & A Little Warped." (Join us if you dare!!)
Some of my Favorite Quotes:
"When I stand before God at the end of my life I would hope that I would have not a single bit of talent left and could say, 'I used everything You gave me.'"
"If you planted hope today in any hopeless heart,
If someone's burden was lighter because you did your part,
If you caused a laugh that chased a tear away,
If tonight your name is mentioned when someone kneels to pray,
Then your day was well spent."
"God Bless the FREAKS!"
"Remember how far you've come, not just how far you have to go."
"Where there is great love, there are always miracles." (Seen on a plaque at Target)
"Happiness is contagious. Be a carrier!"
"Faith that remains unchallenged remains unchanged."
~ Beth Moore
"You can not acheive that which you can not conceive."
"Save an egg. Crack a SMILE!"
"Chocolate in its original form is a plant...It's hard to go wrong eating plants."
~Debra Miller, Ph.D., Hershey's nutritionist and health expert
"Don't settle when the Lord wants you to SOAR!"
