HOW DID YOU FIND SP WEBSITE: Saw some girls talking about it on TV & thought I would check it out- Truly amazing site!!LOVING IT!!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT SPARKPEOPLE.COM? The friends I have made here-truly amazing & inspiring people!! They are what make me keep coming back!! I also love the nutritional tracker- it is a major factor in my weight loss!!
WHAT ARE YOUR HEALTH/WEIGHT LOSS GOALS: My goal is to be 140 by SEPT & maintain the weight- I also want to be toned & tight & have more energy to live my life more fully than I already do!! I want to have a healthy heart & no health conditions in the future such as diabetes or cholesterol problems or heart disease which all run in my family!!
HOW DO YOU GAIN MOTIVATION? By telling myself this every morning when I wake up: I will act now. I will act now. I will act now. Henceforth, I will repeat these words each hour, each day, everyday, until the words become as much a habit as my breathing, and the action which follows becomes as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids. With these words I can condition my mind to perform every action necessary for my success. I will act now. I will repeat these words again and again and again. I will walk where failures fear to walk. I will work when failures seek rest. I will act now for now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labor of the lazy. I am not lazy. Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and lost to me forever. This is the time. This is the place. I am the person.”
WHO IS YOUR BIGGEST SUPPORTER? Myself & all of you!!
WHO IS THE MOST INFLUENTIAL TEACHER OR EDUCATOR IN YOUR LIFE & WHY? Jesus Christ- He was the greatest teacher of all time & left a model for us to follow closely which I try very hard to do!! No one ever had more insiring words than Jesus- just read the Sermon on the Mount!!!
WHO ARE YOUR HEROES & WHY? Again JESUS- look at all he went through because of his love for each & everyone of us!! No one has ever been willing to die for me & then actually did- ONLY HIM,so he is my hero & my best friend!! MY LEADER!!
WHAT PEOPLE PAST OR PRESENT WOULD YOU LIKE TO MEET? Again JESUS- I would want to give him a big hug & a million kisses & tell him how much I appreciate his self sacrificing nature & all that he has done for my future!! I would also want to go door to door & city to city with him spreading the good news of the kingdom!! That would be awesome!!
WHAT IS A RANDOM FACT ABOUT YOU? I am an open book- you can ask me anything & i will be totally honest!! I have nothing to hide- I believe the only way to find real love or real friends is to be yourself at all times & reveal the good & the bad & if they love you anyway then you have found true love & friendship!!

I WILL LOVE THE LIGHT FOR IT SHOWS ME THE WAY, YET I WILL ENDURE THE DARKNESS FOR IT SHOWS ME THE STARS!!!
