Sun, 6 Apr 2014 13:27:23 EST My -- "Why ME???" light bulb moment http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5661111 I have struggled with weight my whole life, and I have often asked that lovely question -- why me? Why do I have to struggle with my weight when others can eat whatever they want and still not gain, and I eat good (mostly) and still struggle to take off anything...why God -- why me? <BR> <BR> How many of you have done that? be honest -- at least with yourself, its not a test -- there is no pass or fail. <BR> <BR> Well, I am going to say --- THANK YOU GOD!

Sat, 22 Mar 2014 13:04:14 EST Thats What Faith Can Do. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5642816 Faith is a funny little thing, not substantial -- not something you can go out and buy -- you either have faith or you don't. But here is the thing, faith is such an integral part of getting to your goals...now that being said -- I am a Christian, I don't hide that fact, I am proud of it...but I am not talking about a religious faith here...that is not for me to say or decide for anyone but myself... What I am talking about is a faith -- that belief in yourself that you CAN do your workouts, ...
