I'm 34 years old. I have 3 children: 2 sons in middle school (this fall) and a little girl whom I'm home-schooling for personal reasons She's doing Kindergarten work on ABC Mouse right now. I'm happily married to a wonderful man (abiggidy) who is also eating healthy and getting fit. I've lost 120+ lbs so far and have about 35+ more lbs to go and then want to maintain while still getting rid of body fat and gaining muscle. I've worked so hard that my weights at home are getting too light for some activities and I can't afford bigger ones right now because our family always comes first. In this journey to wellness, I've overcome depression/bipolar that I've had since I was 8 yrs old! I've been med-free for 3 1/2 years already and only take natural supplements!! I've never been happier or felt more alive! It is absolutely true that what you eat affects how you feel!!! The Lord is good and His mercy endures forever!!! Through Him, I can do this! Baby steps all the way works for me! Fit 4 Jesus, Fit 4 Life!!!! Sometimes, it's okay to gain WEIGHT (wellness, encouragement, inspiration, guidance and helpful thoughts).

My Goals:
I aim to be a healthier me...choose better foods, get more fitness...don't go back to my old ways!

2012: Lost 40 lbs
2013: Lost 51 lbs
2014: Lost 23 lbs
2015: Gained 8 lbs.

My Program:
Eat clean, be active, choose JOY--Jesus first, Others second, Yourself (myself) last....
I choose to eat a grain and dairy free diet at least 340 days of the year (started mid-July) due to my blood type (O+, but both O blood types do this) stores grains and dairy as fat. I metabolize healthy fats and protein very well!

Personal Information:
I live in Michigan. I have a page on Facebook called: Baby Steps to a Brand New Me-Liz Springsteen. My name on Facebook is Liz Springsteen. I check my Facebook every day. If you find me on Facebook and send a request, inbox me and say you are from Spark, or I won't accept you.

Other Information:
I love praise and worship music. I only listen to any kind of Christian music. I read Christian books. I read Christian based self help books, especially Joyce Meyer and Max Lucado books. I love Christian romance books. Love Inspired books are my favorite because they are really easy to read and I can read one and a half a day if I'm not doing anything that day. Not that I've read that much lately...

    You said this on the Black Panthers Intro Questionnaire:

    "4. Are you an EARLY Bird or Night Owl? NEITHER!!!! I'm groggy and crabby in the morning and I'm exhausted at night!"

    You are a woman of my own heart! That's me!! emoticon

    Good luck on the challenge. I look forward to being your teammate!

    Hi Liz,
    Thanks for commenting on my blog. This may sound crazy but I never really knew people could comment on my blog or maybe see it is what I should say. I thought only featured blogs were the only ones that could be seen emoticon . I guess I have alot to learn. Thanks for the support I appreciate it.
