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. I'm working out at the gym 3+ times a week until my free 6-month membership that I won from a New Year's contest expires on August 2nd. Then I'll just be working on stuff at home unless I get the funds to renew the membership so I can keep lifting heavier weights. 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 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!!!!

Personal Information:
I live in Michigan. I have a page on Facebook called: Baby Steps to a Brand New Me. My name on Facebook is Liz Springsteen. I check my facebook every day. I'm also on Yahoo Messenger: lizspringsteen is my screen name, if you add me tell me your from SP or I won't accept your friend request. Same with FB, let me know in a message you are from SP.

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...
