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.

    Heyas! Stopped by to see how you were. I thought the picture of Sammie in his "suit" was fun.

    You and your loving crew are loved and prayed for. Be at peace with everyone, as much as it depends upon you; that's my new focus at this point in the year and so I spread the word to others.

    I think of Michigan, where my grandparents came to after leaving Sweden, when it is the Christmas season and whenever I drink a Vernors.


    Do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God. If we can do those things, we've succeeded in pleasing Him.

    Stress always sneaks upon us to derail us from being physically, emotionally, and spiritually healthy. Two steps backwards to go one step forward. We must always remember to not allow old emotional patterns to defeat us, forgive ourselves,and keep pushing forwrd to grow into the joy that awaits us in our future! eva
