But when the Holy Spirit controls our lives, he will produce this kind of fruit in us: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and SELF-CONTROL. Galatians 5:22-23

"He who has started his work on you won't stop until it is perfected"


What has SPARKPEOPLE done for me?

* I've been eating veggies and fruit on a daily basis for over two years
*I have been choosing food more consciously, for their benefits to my overall health, not just their taste
* I've been learning to cook veggies
*I've been drinking water everyday- some days just a couple of glasses, but more than I used to.

Member Since: 9/26/2007

Fitness Minutes: 9,634

My Goals:
Overweight, fatigued, frumpy woman looking for thin, energetic woman within. ( FITCRIT) ...

To have a healthier lifestyle (ACHIEVED!) and to relocate my weight in God's hands; He'll know what to do with it so it doesn't hurt me any more.
( if we "lose" weight, we can eventually find it again. It is better to "relocate" weight. )

I don't believe in them anymore. I believe in treating myself with respect and enjoying life. What once was a reward now is a pleasure I enjoy freely because I deserve it.
My motivation is the knowledge I'm intentionally doing something for my health and well-being.

My Program:
*GOD'S TIMING...... I'm just his bit of clay...

*portion control, conscious choice of food, walking daily-at least 10 km per week.
* drink water, eat fruit/veggies daily.

Personal Information:
I am from and live in Uruguay in South America. My native language is Spanish. I have been teaching English for over 20 years.
I was badly "broken" but the Lord has been working to heal me. He's not simply restored me to my previous state. He's been working to make me whole for the first time in my life.

2007- 91 kilos
2008- 85 k (187 lbs)

    Yes, it was all of that
    fun! And lots of exercise! And beautiful views!
    But I should mention, I only go out if the weather is nice, ie there is no wind or precipitation. This year we have had a lot of good weather.

    I don't geocache, but my niece does. It is fun, you should try it.
    I find the forests magical too. A whole different realm of experience.

    I am 10-15 pounds from goal weight. I lost 10 pounds from September to now, I hope to lose the rest 5 lbs at a time on the Spark Seasonal challenges.
    The last pounds are always the hardest to lose :)
    I want to lose slowly, get used to my goal weight and stay there.

    For more protein,I drink low-fat milk. I have a morning porridge hot-cereal breakfast that includes quinoa and amaranth and have some of my low-fat milk with that.
    I also like low-fat milk with or without ovaltine for my recovery drink after a cardio workout or as a snack during the day. I live on a dairy farm so my milk is fresh and I skim the butterfat off. I'm not sure low-fat milk is as tasty from the store, but when mixed with another food like porridge, there is probably no difference.

    Some people add beans and other protein vegetables to their meals

    You can also buy protein powder to make drinks with
