Breaking Out of Fat Prison

I've been fat my whole life. It's time to live differently.

Reboot:
I wasn't "sparking" very much for half of 2011 and all of 2012, so I gained back most of the 25 pounds that I lost.

On July 1, 2013, I started back on my journey to better health. This time my whole family is eating on plan, meaning we all follow the guidelines set forth in the book TRIM HEALTHY MAMA. It's been wonderful. We've all lost weight. I haven't started back with exercise yet, but I ...

On July 1, 2013, I started back on my journey to better health. This time my whole family is eating on plan, meaning we all follow the guidelines set forth in the book TRIM HEALTHY MAMA. It's been wonderful. We've all lost weight. I haven't started back with exercise yet, but I know that I need to get with it. That will be my next step.

I am so thankful that in 2010 I started this journey to better health and fitness.

I am living the abundant life promised by my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ:
John 10:10 "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."

I was honored to be chosen Done Girl of the Day for February 1, 2011.

Personal Information:
I am 43 years old, and I have been married for 17 years.

I am a Christian homeschooling mother of 2 teens.

My home will always be in Alabama, but I currently live in South Carolina.

My husband is a pastor, and life in the parsonage is quite an adventure at times. Currently, he is working as the Conference Administrator for our denomination so he is not preaching full time.


Other Information:
In 2010 I learned how to knit. I met with a group of ladies at a local tea room once a week to knit... and have tea until I moved in June 2014.

I love discovering new tea rooms when I travel. I also love coffee... and all things Narnia!

I'm a bit of a "birth junkie" so I love discussing birth stories, homebirth, natural health care and pregnancy. I would love to be a birth doula.
