I don't always know where I'm going as I don't always follow the given path, but I know I am wonderfully and fearfully made. I can not fail with Christ! My mantra is I CAN and WILL BE VICTORIOUS. You CAN too!

I've been a sparkler here for about 7 years now. It's been quite the journey. I started out at 170 my highest weight ever and I was ready to do whatever it took to lose the weight. (healthy ways) After a couple of years I came so close to my goal weight of 130 lbs. I felt on top of the world, but it was short lived. I have struggled with Binge Eating Disorder for years and it reared its ugly head and I all but gave up. Needless to say I have regained all of the weight back + a few more. I've also struggled with Fibromyalgia and arthritis the past 5 years. making it very difficult to function and do daily tasks which includes exercise.But I believe through Christ I can do ALL things. I can and will overcome!

My biggest accomplishment is that on February 29,2008 I quit smoking and with that came the gift of being able to breathe. That gift of fresh air opened the door to this journey!

I came to Spark People lonely, sad, frustrated with myself about the shape I had let myself get into. I didn't know a thing about fitness and nutrition, but in the years that I have been here I have learned a lot. I might not always follow the path that leads to victory, but I try where I can from veering too far off. And even when I seem to be falling from a cliff...He is there to catch me and get me back on track.....and so are my wonderful SP friends! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support!

Again: I CAN and WILL succeed and so CAN YOU!!

Happy 2015!!! Winter is here.

I continue to battle pain and fatigue that just comes along with having Fibromyalgia. I am thankful for the fun, support, and fellowship/friendships from my team mates on FIBRO SISTERS!! This Spark team Rocks!!

Basically for now I am just using my fitbit daily and trying to aim for 1500 steps/day. If I get there wonderful...if I get More that's just bonus. If I fall short I just try again tomorrow.

I am in a Winter challenge on my DONE GIRL team! I need to post. On January 12th I met and surpassed my goal of losing 2 lbs. I am so excited. I am just taking it day by day and trying my best to not let the scale dictate my emotions and self esteem. Love you DONE GIRLS!! xx :)

Let's all strive for wonderful 2015!! Blessings and Love to all!!

It's SPRING! SPRING IS HERE!!

Today 3-22-15 I wore my sandals for the 1st time in many months! So excited I was. Also excited to see the beautiful dogwood, cherry blossoms and Bradford pair trees blooming.
SC is beautiful in Spring and is my absolute favorite season.

Speaking of blooming....NEW Challenge for Spring; started early this month. DONE GIRL'S BLOOMING BEAUTY CHALLENGE! We are in competition with no one, just trying one day at a time to meet our weekly weight loss goal and meet end of challenge goals. GO DONE GIRLS. WE CAN DO IT!!

Blessings to all in this beautiful season of Spring!

DECEMBER 2015: Is almost here! (Today is November 27)

Tis time once again to celebrate Christ the Saviors Birth!

Time once Again to spend time with loved ones far and near. Spread the love and good cheer!

Since Christmas of 2014 I have lost roughly 40 lbs. I am so thankful. I feel better physically. Less Fibro flare ups and lower back troubles. It is MUCH easier to put socks on. YAY!!

I have 17 more lbs to lose if I go the higher end of my healthy BMI and 30 if I go the lower end. At this point in time I am aiming for the 17 lbs. I have been at the weight before and felt comfortable and content. I will do this one day at a time.

Christmas time is my favorite holiday. I love to decorate. I collect snowmen and I of course love to put out the Nativity scene which means so much to me. I love the smell of pine...When I was a home owner I INSISTED on a real tree. Now apartment living keeps me from having the real thing, so I light my balsam scented candles while I enjoy my "Charlie Brown" Christmas tree. (It's very small,but fun to decorate).

Wishing you a lovely, fun and joyful December and Holiday time!!

I just read on your page that you enjoy the Yada Yada PG books, too! Have you been reading the parallel novels she writes with her husband, that feature cameos from the YYPG characters?

emoticon Actions we take today affect how we live tomorrow. If we know what we want...if we listen to our heart's desire, write down our goals, and keep them in mind with every action we take...we create our dreams. We turn our wishes into goals and our goals into reality. We visualize the life we want and create it for ourselves.

Blessings today and always!
