Now about me...
Welcome to Sparkpeople.com! If you looking for help getting healthy and fit, you've found it.

My previous journey went very well but unfortunately came to a halt. Thankfully I have the motivation to return to get back on track but with a different mind set. To sum up the halt, it boiled down to the fact that it's easier to "not" exercise and it's easier to "not" track what you eat and I allowed myself even after loosing over 40 lbs to get go back. I was doing so well, but I gave in to the easier.

The bad: I gained most of the pounds back, putting me back into the overweight category.

The good: I'm a work in progress and though the progress is slow, I'm not giving up.

Member Since: 3/28/2007

My Goals:
Appreciate myself.

Take care to make healthy choices everyday.

Get in the water via well water and fruits/veggies

Kick the gum chewing habit for good.

My Program:
Using my weekly motivation worksheet to earn points toward a prize and the end of the week. Motivation worksheet covers Spiritual, Physical; Well Being and other areas of growth. I started it around June of 2010 and have been perfecting it since.

Personal Information:
2009 was the year I got my motivation to lose excess weight and be more healthier. I was introduced to SparkPeople.com back in 2007 and had hoped to get going but it took another 2 years and 2 months before I was really motivated to lose the weight.

In 2010 my theme was to Kick it up a notch! I completed training for the Flying Pig Marathon. Ran/Walked the Flying Pig Marathon; Ran in the Columbus Nationwide Health 1/2 Marathon.

My faith is Apostolic. I enjoy God's Word and His personal love. He answers my prayers even ones that may seem small.

Praise Jesus!

Other Information:
2011 seems to be a year of liberation and independence. It feels good to let go of things that bind and be free.
Thus my screen name Hallelul. I'm thankful for freedom.

2012 - Appreciate

    Thanks so much for having me as a friend.....

    I posted the below paragraph to my blog today and yesterday, but don't know if you saw it, so here it is! I recently found out, I could have sent you a Sparkemail, but I'm still learning. And Oh, God is Good all the time and all the time God is Good!

    Thanks for your encouraging words! I really appreciate them. You're right about getting a buddy to do the fitness exercises with, cause it makes it easier. You know, sometimes we forget, we're not the only one feeling like this or going thru like situations. Praise God, that you found those Billy Blanks videos. You know, when I was stationed in Japan (in 2007) he came over there and held some kick-boxing sessions with our troops. You see, he did this at his brother's request. He was a Navy Master Chief, and talked his brother into coming there and showing us some reps. I still have the yellow boxing bands (he autographed), that he would wrap around his hands for boxing, etc. Also, if you wouldn't mind, I tried visiting your Sparkpage, but it's private (you have it set for friends only), can I be a SparkBuddy (friend) of yours? I don't have any friends other than the Owner of this website yet!
