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!!!

Member Since: 10/29/2011

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.

    Hi Eva,

    I love expressing the love of Christ to who ever will listen. I am really just trying to learn my way around this site. I try to send encouragement to the different forums and also on Facebook. I try to give my energy to that which matters most.

    The Lord has been so good to his people, and I just refuse to let past mistakes or failures define who I am, never let the past dicate what your future will be. I have a lot of people that ask me why I smile so much, it seems as if I don't have a bad day. My respone is, if you only knew my story and walked my path, then you would undertstand. I was once lost and didn't know my identity until Jesus found me, it was then that He told me who I was and to whom I belone to. So my SMILE is my weapon against satan and his predators.

    Believe it or not, a lot of people have passed away and never fulfilled their destiny, and their are people alive right now living a defeated life because of their own lies to themselve or negative attitudes about themselves. Do you know that satan is not our worst enemy, we are our worst enemy.

    We need to grab hold to the joy and freedom God has given us. And with the right attitude towards self we can live our best life, The bible tells us to learn to encourgae ourselfs in the Lord, but I just believe that the Lord will always provide for someone to come alone just as He did with you and I.

    He said that I will never leave you nor forsake you. Never to me means Never, and He is with us through each other. But we must be willing to Learn, Grow and Change. Just let go of anyone or anything that doesn't add to your growth.

    I was reading your blog, about the things you are doing with writing and inspiring-continue to let the Lord use you there. Never let mishaps, mistakes or missed steps derail your dreams. There are a lot of hurting people out there waiting to hear what you have to say and to add: He allowed you to go through what you went through and still be here to be a help and strength to someone else. The Lord Know and sees that when we stumble and fall, we may be bloody and bruised with broken bones, don't let that stop you. Just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and push on toward the finish line.

    You know it was all God that allow me to meet you via Sparkspeople and now I have heard a portion of your story. Who would've ever thought, Isn't The Lord Awesome!!!!!!

    May the blessings of the Lord be with you always!!!!!
