My Personal Motto:
"MY CHOICE" (explained in blog dated 3-11-2010)


Hello, and welcome to my Spark Page. Ever since I can remember, I have been overweight. I never remember a time in my life that was not shadowed or overshadowed by weight issues. Even when I was a decent weight for a year or two of my life, I did not know it, and therefore, did not enjoy it.

Join me in this journey and we will run the race together, cheering each other over the finish line; but we won't quit once we cross that line. Instead, we will keep on going, maintaining what we have accomplished and becoming healthier each day, becoming a WHOLE person.




Jillian Michaels - Smart tip
You have 1 true obligation, that's to contribute your best you to the world.Visualize what you want out of life & think big. Don't be afraid of what others think. That's their business not yours. Don't feel undeserving. We're ALL deserving of living our dreams - some of us realize it & some don't. You�re not doing anyone any favors by living small. Embrace these truths & step up. The world is waiting.


James 1: 2-4 Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don't try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way. (The Message Bible)


In the darkest days of World War II, Winston Churchhill stated "Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never--in nothing, great or small, large or petty--never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense."


Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together. ~ Vincent VanGogh



Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential. ~ Winston Churchill


Understand that by removing self-imposed boundaries you obtain limitless possiblities...


Develop the courage to go after your goals...


Believe that small changes can make a difference...
