I am a TOPS member for many years. My top weight reached 195 lbs. I have been down in the 173 to 163 range for the last 4 to 5 years, maintaining and really happy to be doing that. I am making my final run to my goal weight of 155 and reach my KOPS (Keep Off Pounds Sensibly) status. I want SparksPeople to help me get 5 lbs. below that and stay there with a permanent life style change.

I praise my Lord, Jesus Christ, especially for hearing my prayer to restore my health, a few years ago, with healing I had to know was from Him alone. I now strive to get and keep His temple healthy so I may one day return to the ministry on my web site into which I was called in 1998.

Member Since: 2/5/2006

Fitness Minutes: 1,208

My Goals:
I became a member of Sparkpeople in 2006 and was pulled away late that year due to family responsibilities. I remembered a few weeks ago (late Jan. 2008) just how much I loved I am back and hopefully this time I can build a lasting new and exciting plan for my life.

My Program:
Follow the SparkPeople Nutrition plan. Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. Use these recipes as much as I can. Walk for exercise and begin a strength training program.

Personal Information:
I am a Christian, a blessed wife, mother of two with 2 in-law kids and I have 5 grandchildren, and one great grand on the way!
Gramma Cherbear is also the author, illustrator and webmaster of, a 600 page site for Christian families, home-schoolers, missionaries and churches, etc.

Other Information:
I would like prayer for my return to ministry. I know God will help me attain that which is really the highest of my goals. I have much yet to do!

    Thanks for adding me to your friends list! It would be great to help keep track of each other as we have similar goals. I am so grateful to God for guiding me to this site and for having the opportunity to meet people from all over the continent with similar struggles. I am especially thankful for this team where we all love God, and are able to share about our struggles and how we are learning to use our faith to allow God into this part of our journey. God created my temple and I have not always maintained it. I now want to give back to Him what was His in the first place. It is not an easy journey, but God didn't promise that life would be easy only that He would be with me every step of the way. Blessings to you, I will add you to my friends list as well. Talk to you soon, Sandy

    Cherbear welcome to Sparks and this wonderful Christian team of women. I used to be a TOPS leader in the 80's and now I am struggling to lose again. I have lost as of today 14 pounds since January thanks to Sparks.

    I also used to be in the puppet ministry at church praying now that God will use me to his glory in whatever way he choses.....

    We are here for you !!!
