I am very grateful to have found Sparkpeople and all the wonderful people within...my goals are to eat healthy, move more, and LOSE THE WEIGHT BY THE END OF 2012.

I WAS SO TIRED OF BEING THE FAT FRIEND, avoiding SOCIAL situations, looking the other way when I walked by plateglass windows, cocooning, and FEELING ASHAMED ALL THE TIME.

In October 2007, I went through a wonderful rawfood bootcamp, which I discovered mid-2006 from a link I came upon somehow through Sparkpeople. As of the beginning of March 2008, I had released 62 pounds of toxins...and as of my weigh-in last Thursday I had regained 47 of them.

By the grace of God, following an active and lowfat-mostly raw- mostly vegetarian lifestyle, and with the support of ALL THE WONDERFUL SPARKIES I meet in these electronic walls everyday...I am continuing to strive toward my healthy goals and hold myself accountable to God, me, and my Sparkfriends here...
out of the darkness of my food addiction and self-defeating behaviour, I am STANDING IN THE LIGHT now...because by year's end 2012 I'll be DANCING IN THE LIGHT!


Member Since: 4/26/2006

Fitness Minutes: 3,258

My Goals:
To restore my Temple, in which resides Ruach Yeshua Meshicheinu, the Holy Spirit-- through trying to nourish myself spiritually and physically as Adonai intended.

For my life to be transformed.


My Program:
I exercise a minimum of 60 minutes a day, try for more.

I follow WW Points+ and my favorite food to eat is raw, mainly vegan, and whole foods. I track on Sparkpeople and WW online. My fave treats are flan, chile rellenos, AND dirtytinis:)



Personal Information:
My name is Tamara, from Tampa, FL, since 2000. Before that I lived in the desert outside Las Cruces, NM and all over Texas! I used to raise goats, ducks, coternix quail, guineafowl, exotic and domestic chickens, a pig and 30 turkeys. I miss working with animals!


Other Information:
The Source of my life is Elohim Chayim, my Creator and my Rock, Elohei Tzur...or as I like to call Him, Lord and Father. A Messianic Christian, I know God wants me to turn to Him instead of food, and move my wonderful body every day!
I have a 24-yr old son & a 32-yr old son married with two sons. I live with many cats, a standard poodle and a giant tank with 2 gouramis in it.
I'm a freelance writer, editor & artist in remission. I am a casefile reviewer doing forensic auditing of foreclosure actions by a major bank.
I love studying scripture, reading, writing, old classics, B&W movies- even silent- jazz, salsa, classical, biking and walking by the bay or beach, and hanging out with friends!

    Chile,

    Thanks for visiting my SparkPage. Yes, Hawaii is beautiful, so if you get a chance to go, jump at it. I look forward to meeting you, too. Maybe in July, for our proposed belly dancing hoopla? That will give me some motivation to get cracking on the exercise/diet goals! See you on the WoWoWLG thread! Tara

    Chile, Thanks so much for that sweet note you put on my page. It made my day. Since exercise is my battle I have devised a new plan today. I bought one of those walking videos and tried it. It exhausted me, unlike my walks around my very level neighborhood. So I am going to do the 20 minute routine 6 days a week and gradually work up. And I am only going to do strength training twice a week for now. I think I can stick with this. I sure hope you are feeling better. Getting sick puts a little wrench in the enthusiasm to start a new healthy lifestyle. But you will bounce back and do wonderful. I always like your posts. Your warm heart comes out in every word you write. Susan
