I started this journey at 200 lbs, grieving losses in my life including my mother & my dog. Now I'm getting healthy & strong with the Lord's help, leaving the past behind and moving straight ahead. (Joel 3:10/Ruth 3:11 AMP)
I am a BORN-AGAIN, SPIRIT-FILLED Charismatic Pentecostal Christian with FAITH in God and His Word! I pray in tongues daily.
I BELIEVE: God loves & cares about me and all in my life;
that God saves, heals & delivers me when I need Him to; that
HE cares more about relationship than perfect performance &
spending time with God & His Word improves my performance.
I BELIEVE that what God does for me, He will do for you!
I thank God for good times in my life and, when times are bad, I thank Him that He will take care of me and see me through.

~~~~****~~~~ ""I CHOOSE"" ~~~~****~~~~
to live by choice, not by chance;
to make changes, not excuses;
to be motivated, not manipulated;
to be useful, not used;
to excel, not to compete.
I choose self-esteem, not self-pity.
I choose to listen to my inner voice,
Not the random opinion of others.
~~~I will choose to be me~~

“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case,
too early to be whoever you want to be.
There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want.
You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing.
We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it.
And I hope you see things that startle you.
I hope you feel things you never felt before.
I hope you meet people with a different point of view.
I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not,
I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”
~ F. Scott Fitzgerald ~

Eat the damn chocolate cake, get your hair wet, love someone, dance in those muddy puddles,
tell someone off, draw a picture with crayons like you're still 6 years old and then give it to someone who is very important to you. Take a nap, go on vacation, do a
cartwheel, make your own recipe, dance like no one sees you,
paint each nail a different color, take a bubble bath, laugh at a corny joke.
Get on that table and dance, pick strawberries, take a jog, plant a garden,
make an ugly shirt and wear it all day, learn a new language, write a song,
date someone you wouldn't usually go for, make a scrap book, go on a picnic,
relax in the sun, make your own home video, kiss the un-kissed,
hug the un-hugged, love the unloved, and live your life to the fullest.
So at the end of the day, you'll have no regrets, no sorrows, & no disappointments
Remember ALL these to live YOUR life to the fullest!

**^^** **^^**I"M THE KIND OF GIRL**^^** **^^**
I'm the kinda girl who sings in the shower, talks to animals like they are people,
packs way too much for a weekend trip, puts on a smile because people expect it,
holds back her feelings because she's been hurt too many times to count,
hates mornings but will get up for a cup of coffee,
acts tough but cries when she gets mad, says she isn't ticklish when she really is,
and wears her heart on her sleeve and hope no one rips it off and smashes it.
I'm the kind of girl that....trips on a wireless phone cord, chokes on air,
laughs out loud when its dead silent, pulls a door that says push,
walks into glass doors and always walks
up the down escalator wondering why its going so slow.
