It has been quite some time since I have been on SparkPeople and I am glad to be able to reconnect. Life has handed me many curves since I was last here, but I am ready to regroup and start again. I had gotten up to 183 pounds but with the Grace of God, I am down to 164 lbs. I am learning a whole new life style of eating and I am finally enjoying the new change.

Member Since: 1/13/2009

Fitness Minutes: 2,649

My Goals:
My goal is to live to be a fairly old lady attached to a working body, healthy mind and a sense of humor.

To change the things I can...accept the things I can't change and to know the difference between the two.

My Program:
To be aware of what I eat, when I eat and why I ate it.

Learn how to be good to myself.

Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still.

- Chinese Proverb

Personal Information:
I live in West Tennessee and have been here most of my life and I plan on dieing here. We have 2 dogs. Boaz (Bo for short), a mini-dobbie. We got him from someone who decided they just didn't want him anymore. Then there's Abbigail "Abby", a boxer. She found us after a terrible storm, skinny and scared. Then there's Moses, the cat (who my neice found small and sickly) Our other cat's name is Sarah, actually Grace "Sarah". She found us too. We also have 2 horses, Alex and Paloma.

It looks like a small gray kitten has adopted us. We have seen it several times, sleeping where Moses and Sarah usally sleep. We haven't been able to get our hands on it yet, so we don't know if we are new parents of a girl or boy.

Other Information:
My fav Quote is "This too shall pass."

    Hey, Cissy. Like you, I'm trying to get started back. Lots going on in my life, too. Too much stress equals overeating for me emoticon

    Gotta get back on track! Miss you and hope to see you on again soon!

    "I Said A Prayer For You Today"
    I said a prayer for you today
    And know God must have heard.
    I felt the answer in my heart
    Although He spoke no word!

    I didn't ask for wealth or fame
    (I knew you wouldn't mind).
    I asked him to send treasures
    Of a far more lasting kind!

    I asked that He be near you
    At the start of each new day;
    To grant you health and blessings
    And friends to share your way!

    I asked for happiness for you
    In all things great and small.
    But it was for His loving care
    I prayed the most of all!

    Christian Women Dealing
    w/Chronic Illness & Pain.
    **A Perfect Christian**
    You could count on a perfect Christian
    To always be gentle and humble,
    To be immune to sin,
    And never, ever stumble.

    He’d study and remember
    All of God’s commands;
    He’d be trustworthy, moral and honest;
    You’d know just where he stands.

    With others, she’d be in harmony;
    She’d never lose her cool;
    Forgiving and forgetting,
    Following the Golden Rule.

    He’d surrender his life to God,
    Full of joy and peace,
    Free of stress and worry…
    Perfect, pure release.

    She’d lift up everyone,
    Full of sweet compassion,
    Free of worldly wants,
    Ignoring worldly fashion.

    But we can’t ever be perfect,
    So we always need to pray
    For the strength to do our best
    To love God and obey.

    God Besses YOU every day

    ~~More Than Ever~~
    In today’s chaotic world,
    With everything around us crumbling,
    Morality held in contempt,
    Our leaders false, corrupt, or bumbling,

    More than ever, we need Christ
    To lead us through this darkening place;
    His absolute truth will light our way;
    He’ll lift us with His love and grace.

    The Bible is our cornerstone;
    In God’s word, we take our stands;
    Role models we will strive to be,
    Examples of our Lord’s commands.

    Dear Lord Jesus, strengthen us
    To complete the tasks you’d have us do;
    We pray you’ll lead us, guide us now
    To know and love and follow you.

    2 Corinthians 12:9
    And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee:
    for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
    Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities,
    that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
