I joined the Winter Warm-Up BL Challenge - where I am on the Turquoise Titan Team!

I hope to spread the SPARK!

There I was...
- December, 2006 - I joined Sparkpeople
- October 31, 2011 I started eating a "Gluten-Free" and "Sugar-Free" Diet to help combat some of my health issues.
- November 27 and 28, 2011 I watched The "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead" Documentary, which inspired me to do a 60 Day Juice Fast, where I drank only water and JUICE that I made using an Omega 8006 Masticating Juicer and a 2-Ton Juice Press to extract as much of the FRESH JUICE as possible.
I dropped a total of 52 pounds between the GF & SF Diet and the Juice Fast.
- April 20, 2012 my "world was rocked" when I was given 41 days notice that I had to move...
- I gained BACK 13 pounds from not eating enough calories and the {{{{STRESS}}} = "Survival Mode" kicked in!
- July 20, 2012 I got the keys to my new home, 3 months to the day from when I found out I needed to move...
- August 13, 2012 I started a 40 Day Juice Fast, hoping to "Reboot" my body & Get my BP down!
I dropped 27 pounds and got down to size 8!
- 7 Novermber, 2012 I started a 10 Day Juice Fast, hoping to "Reboot" my body- hoping to get a grip on what foods I can reintroduce to my "Diet", that won't cause horrible PAIN in my gut.
- 1 January, 2013 I started a "Grain-Free" Diet
- 23 Febuary I started the "Specific Carbohydrate Diet and the "Winter into Spring 5% Challenge"
- December 2013 I signed on with Young Living Essential Oils. I am so hooked on the way these amazing oils smell, and the way they address my health and emotional issues. If you have any questions on how to use Essential oils, ask!

I am determined to get my hormones and gut to act right.
My new motto: "Nothing TASTES as good as healthy FEELS"
You can quote me on that!

In March my husband and I will celebrated 17 years of marriage and 20 years of "being together."
Established on 16 March, 1996.
October 2011 I turned 50. Half a CENTURY!
This past October, in honor of my 27th move, I turned Thirty-Nine, Ninety-Five, PLUS Shipping & handling. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

I have 5 children, ages 31, 25, 17, 15 and 13.
Two of which I brought into my marriage.
All 5 were born by Cesarian Section, OUCH!!!

This year is the 20th year that I have been educating my children at home. Home schooling is a way of life that I wouldn't trade for all the money in the world. There are days when I might PAY someone to trade places with me though!

My oldest daughter and son-in-law have blessed me with 5 grandchildren!

My second daughter and son-in-law had their first child in March - "It's a girl!"

I have moved 27 times in my life that I can recall. There could have been more moves? My husband and I recently bought a home 10 miles south of the Tennessee River, South of Huntsville, AlaBAMA.
I have liked every place that we have lived.
The fact of the matter is,
"This world is not my home. I'm only passing through!"

My Favorite Quotes?

"I can do all things through Christ WHO gives me STRENGTH!"

"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." -

“Whatever weakens your reason, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, or takes off the relish of spiritual things; in short, whatever increases the strength and authority of your body over your mind, that thing is sin to you, however innocent it may be in itself.”

Afternoon emoticon Canice

Dropping by to say hi and wanted you to know you were being thought of today. Also wanted to cheer you on for a great day & weekend ahead, keep up the emoticon work! Thanks for your friendship & support!

Hope you enjoy the following Friendship Poem! emoticon

Friendship is a special gift
And reflects the Father’s love
When our buddy walks by our side,
The path is not so tough
For God created friendship
To be treasured through the years,
Because ups and downs, tears and laughter,
Strengthens the bond that’s shared.
