I'm a photojournalist who works from my cluttered computer desk. I enjoy making homemade greeting cards, spending fun times with my grandgals and making people laugh:)

Through the biblically-inspired First Place program and the incredible tools and friends here at Sparkpeople, I reached my goal weight on July 27, 2012.

Several things got me off-track recently. When my weight hit a number I hadn't seen in several years, I knew it was time to address my gluttony and laziness (well, let's call it what it is)! Back to logging my fitness and food (whether good or bad). Check my trackers if you want, and comments are welcome.

    For I have come to have much joy and comfort in your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you ~ Philemon 1:7.

    I rejoice over you. As I prepare to close out my account with Spark People on the 12th, I want you to know that God has used you to refresh my heart and I have found much joy and comfort in your loving ways and caring presence. You will be in my heart and in my prayers as I take up my cross daily to follow Jesus. Keep up the good work, beloved. God bless you on your way.

    Blessings and emoticon

    Ann, thank you for my new workout shoes, I'm afraid it will be awhile before I can wear them as this boot stay on until after Memorial Day maybe then I can get into them!!!! Sure hoping this foot heal quickly, I'm tired of just sitting around and not really feeling good.

    I had surgery on my left foot about a week and 1/2 ago and now get the stitches out. It still is really painful so I'm hoping and praying that getting the stiches out will help with the pain and that getting them out won't be too bad!!!! I've really had a time of feeling bad but hopefully things are looking up!!!!

    Hope you have a great week!!!
