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.

    Just a little love to share with you to day!!!!
    To achieve your higher purpose, you don't need a certain job title or a license to do certain things. You only need to be who you are: the embodiment of love in all forms. By being who you are, you live your purpose in every moment through every situation you encounter. you become a living purpose and every experience offers the opportunity for you to become more authentically you. Let the ashes of the past nourish the seeds of new beliefs and healthy ways of living.

    No matter what life has thrown your way, you'll find that both laughter and tears lead to the same needed feeling of release. Embrace the unshakable you, finding humor in every situation, Remember this laughter lives in the middle ground of contentment, so whether the waters are high or low, you move forward with grace.

    Life is rich, and filled with beautiful moments as well as difficult times. You are strong, you are wise, you are loved and you are a beautiful person needed in this world.

    You can’t “should’ve” done something. You can only DO something. Renew yourself. Release that attachment. Today is a new day!”

    Thanks for stopping by my page with your sweet message. Hope you have had a good weekend and are ready for a healthy week!

    Eva, what profound words you wrote on my page! It really, for me, is about "letting go and letting God." Hard to do as a human with a free will. BUT that's where we have to do all we can to develop our relationship with HIm and our faith!

    Hope you had a good Saturday. Snow today, but not a lot.
