Intro 1-08

Saturday, January 12, 2008

I am sooo happy to have stumbled upon this program and all that is offered here! A little about me... I love Texas hill country and deserts, the hills of Ky., mountains, oceans, lakes & rivers, the outdoors, traveling to new places here & abroad, learning about & experiencing new cultures, hiking, camping, meeting new people, animals, new discoveries & ideas, positive ideas & people, changes & growth, "real" people, every moment big and small that can never be repeated in this journey. I'm an old hippie type, an environmentalist, a feminist, a former Jesus-freak, now I live each day as if it's my last trying to imitate Christ in all I say, do, and think to the best of my ability. Never reach perfection and won't until I am there in the presence of the Allmighty as Mercy Me sings and I'll be singing His praises forever and ever. Can't wait till then, but for now I'm enjoying the good that exists in this world and trying to make it a better place. Not trying to be "preachy", but yes I really do have an intense faith and am very passionate about whatever I commit to, so I'm in the process of committing to this lifestyle change to be healthier as I know that is what it will take to be successful!! I've never weighed this much in my life before (221) and it seems like a deep hole to be in at 53, but I know that there are many more like myself out there, I know that with the tools, support and guidance of this program and other members, it will help me immensely, and I know that with HIS help I can do all things in HIM who strenghens me!! I do have an open mind and heart regardless of your beliefs and values. God bless each of you today & everyday!! And, by the way I'm a Democrat, so there are Christians in our party!!! GO SPURS!!
