My life has been a struggle. Two steps forward, sometimes five steps backwards. Basically in and out of physical accidents, emotional crisis, most bigger than life circumstances. It wears you down. How many times must I climb the mountain to finally stay there. Now is my final race,45 lbs up from a car accident. now healed after 12 1/2 years. Only to have perscription damage and go up 75 pounds-25 pounds at a time. Almost physically back to normal . Back to spark again where my cholesterol showed 35 points down when I was at my highest weight. Now I found out that I have a plak in a valve to my heart caused by the impact to the stiring wheel in that car accident. I am doing things to dissolve the calcium deposits in my front valve. But this is my last race, and my final one. I am trying to stay physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually stable.No more excuses to my self about whatever stress comes along and bing eating. This is serious! No more games. When I reach my goal, at the mountain top, I know I will get back so many things I have lost long ago, and I will try to just ignore the emotional hole I am trying to fill! I am a rock!!!

Fitness Minutes: 15,287

My Goals:
I would like to finally conquer my fears, and keep my health stable. As well as growing stronger in faith by knowing God's Word.


My Program:
I am learning more about maintaining a healthy life style, as well as cooking healthier. I am learning to release my fears to god, so that I won't keep this pattern of mindless eating which leads to self destruction.



Personal Information:
I am the daughter of immigrant parents, first generation. I was born over seas in a city in Germany that was like a resort, because the whole city was a spa. My family has some members named after the bible. I am the grand daughter of Joseph, and the child of Mary. I guess I am glad I didn't have a child, because I would have named him Christ-short for Christopher-or Chris Christopherson, ha ha. My mom remarried a chef when I was fifteen years old. But I never paid atten-tion to cooking till I was on my own.


Other Information:
I live in Michigan where we have four seasons. What has been constant in my life is that animals have come into my life. I have done rescue. "But little did I know they were rescuing me. I am very empathetic, and it shows in my writings. My unconditional love was shared by my animals. And they say that humans can never know this, except thru God.

    For animal lovers:
    A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign
    advertising the 4 pups, and set about nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard.
    As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt a tug on his overalls.
    He looked down into the eyes of a little boy.
    "Mister," he said, "I want to buy one of your puppies."
    "Well," said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat of the back of his neck,
    "these puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money."
    The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket,
    he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer.
    "I've got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?"
    "Sure," said the farmer. And with that he let out a whistle. "Here Dolly!" he called.
    Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by
    four little balls of fur. The little boy pressed his face against the
    chain link fence. His eyes danced with delight. As the dogs made their way
    to the fence, the little boy noticed something else stirring inside the doghouse.
    Slowly another little ball appeared, this one noticeably smaller.
    Down the ramp it slid. Then in a awkward manner,
    the little pup began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to catch up....
    "I want that one," the little boy said, pointing to the runt.
    The farmer knelt down at the boy's side and said, "Son, you don't want that puppy.
    He will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs would."
    With that the little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down,
    and began rolling up one leg of his trousers. In doing so he revealed a steel brace
    running down both sides of his leg attaching itself to a specially made shoe.
    Looking back up at the farmer, he said, "You see sir, I don't run too well myself,
    and he will need someone who understands."
    With tears in his eyes, the farmer reached down and picked up the little pup.
    Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy.
    "How much?" asked the little boy.
    "No charge," answered the farmer, "There's no charge for love."

    I come to you as a friend, to say that God is a God of miracles! and I want us to claim together victory over you in the name of Jesus!
    When I am tired and weak, Lord are strong, and are my source of help. I cannot fight without you. Teach me how to pray and to trust you to pull down those strongholds that keep me or others helpless. Guard me from isolation that leaves me exposed and vulnerable. But like a bad penny, my enemy keeps showing up, whispering lies, twisting truth, and attempting my pride. Strengthen my faith, Lord. so I can stand and fight the spiritual battles in my life. Give me your wisdom and discernment so I won't be caught off guard. Together I know I can be a victor, because Lord you have already defeated the enemy, here on Earth.
    Lord, through the power of your precious name and blood, I agree with your Word and the truth that you are in me and that you are greater than my enemy who wants to rule the world. You, your Word, and prayer, Lord, are my secret weapon that fills me with a powerful God-confidence. I want to constantly dress in the spiritual armor you give me. Help me use it to defend myself & others from Satan's fiery darts as well. In Jesus's powerful name before which every knee shall bow, Amen!

    "TODAY YOU ARE AT THE TOP OF YOUR LIST!"
    Remember today you are worth the love you have for others.
    Today you will fight the good fight.
    You will honor yourself, by fighting your demons.
    Feed yourself the love that you have for God and others, to yourself.
    Nourish your soul with foods that make you want to be happy.
    Don't put yourself, on the bottom of your list.
    Represent what it is you give out to others.
    And stand strong in the fact that you are loved.
    Don't see the bottle half empty,
    For it is half full!
    Be grateful for life.
    Try loving your best friend, you!

    "GREET EACH DAY WITH YOUR PROJECTION"

    "I awake sometimes a mere shadow of myself.
    Without a mirror I judge this shadow.
    Yet, prior to the days beginning,
    I foresee my future perfect self.
    In order to rise above my shadow,
    I dilute my negativity,
    And bring in the illusion of endless happiness,
    Drawing a smile on my face,
    Opening my eyes to the clarity of hope.
    For I now greet the day with my projection of myself.
    As being hopeful in my journey."
