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!

    hello friend!

    I have been mia since end of April wierd summer ended up in the ER for poison Ivy and then allergic reaction to the steriods they gave me for it, then fainted and fell on my concrete in the garage and injured my ankle and back to ER for that. So needless to say the only thing on my mind was healing so I could return to Sparks.....

    Oh Cherbear, I was looking all over your website for Toby Joe...and he was here all the time... Really I am all right, just been working too hard.. He is adorable..and I am sure he will have you trained in no time at all.. That is what our dogs have done with us. They have trained us instead of us training them.. :) LOL
    I hope he brings you lots of joy and pleasure and I am sure he will.
