SHERRILOU47 is a SparkPeople Motivator!
Today is a brand new day, I am in the process of letting go of my yesterdays because the only way they will help me with today is the lessons that the Lord taught me during those days..
I am back on Spark people after about 3 years, and am looking forward to getting started once again with setting those goals.
There has been so many things that have happened, but the main thing to remind myself and my friends is that God walked with me each and every day, and with Him by my side, I have arrived at this day and feel extremely blessed..
I am looking forward to making new friends, getting in touch with old friends and working towards arriving at my goal weight..
Be blessed and don't forget how much God loves you today !!!
My Long Term Goal for 2010 is to reach my goal weight which will be to lose this last 40 pounds.
My mid-term goal is to lose 2 pounds per week for the next 12 weeks..( Now if I don't , then I will do some modifications, but this is my goal)
My short term goals are weekly which will be :
Stay on my Program
Track my food , water and exercise
Exercise at least 10 min. per day, adding 5 more min. each week.
My program is to stay within my calorie range of 1200 - 1500 calories per day eating healthy calories. I plan to put good fuel in my body so that I will feel better.
I am a born again Christian who loves the Lord with all of my heart and consider it such a joy to walk with Him daily!!!

The Ripple Effect
Each choice we make causes
a ripple effect in our lives.
When things happen to us,
it is the reaction we choose
that can create the difference
between the sorrows of our past
and the joy in our future.
"The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will
give thanks to him in song."

Philippians 4:13 Scripture Poem
I have strength for all things
Through Christ who empowers me
I'm ready for anything that comes my way,
Even what I may not foresee
For it is Christ who infuses me,
Strengthening me in His might
And I am sufficient in His sufficiency
With the power of Christ inside.

Dropping by to wish you a Blessed Easter Weekend and share a special Easter Poem....
Easter Means Eternal Life
A perfect God demands a perfect justice;
He cannot let us get away with sin.
We used God’s gift of our free will to trespass,
So heaven’s gates were closed; we couldn’t get in.
Our sin required our blood, a sacrifice,
To atone for all the wrongs that we had done.
"But I love them!" cried our Father, filled with sorrow;
"I’ll send my only Son to be the one."
Good Friday marks the slaying of our Jesus,
The unblemished lamb, the perfect sacrifice.
He took our guilt and blame upon Himself,
So we could be with Him in paradise.
On Easter morning, he came back from death;
He vanished from the tomb, the empty grave.
His resurrection means eternal life
For us, the ones he came to earth to save.
This summarizes all the Easter story
And because of it, we’ll be with Him in glory.
