The tale of a little spark who turned into a roaring fire:

In June of 2007 I signed up on SparkPeople at the suggestion of one of my best friends. I was looking to get rid of the last 10 pounds that I'd accumulated, which I did. Yay! =}

However, having gone through some emotional stresses (divorce, job loss, moving to another state, etc), I lost more weight than I'd planned...Yikes! =(

I became *really* active on SP in October of 2007 by keeping tabs on my nutrition, & exercise habits. I feel GOOD about myself & my life! Whoo hoooo! I've gained MUSCLE & am becoming FREAKISHLY STRONG! =} WATCH OUT WORLD!

Being nominated as a SparkPeople Motivator the summer of 2008 brought tears of joy to my eyes. It's an HONOR that I cherish and take very seriously!!

~~Thank you to my fellow Sparks who have been so incredibly encouraging & supportive. YOU ROCK (Yes *you*)!! I couldn't have gotten this far without your help!! Sending out lots of BIG hugs & love!!~~

I ENTHUSIASTICLY lead "Sparks Raving M.A.D" (Making A Difference is what we're all about)!! I'm also PROUD to Co-lead "Christian Vegetarians & Vegans" ("Yay God!"), "Lambeau Field HQ" (GO PACK GO!), "CHOCOLATE LOVERS UNITE"(What? It *is* a food group!!) & a wee bit CRAZY to Co-lead "SLIGHTLY SKEWED & A Little Warped." (Join us if you dare!!)

Some of my Favorite Quotes:

"When I stand before God at the end of my life I would hope that I would have not a single bit of talent left and could say, 'I used everything You gave me.'"
~Erma Bombeck

"If you planted hope today in any hopeless heart,
If someone's burden was lighter because you did your part,
If you caused a laugh that chased a tear away,
If tonight your name is mentioned when someone kneels to pray,
Then your day was well spent."
~Author Unknown

"God Bless the FREAKS!"

"Remember how far you've come, not just how far you have to go."
~Rick Warren

"Faith that remains unchallenged remains unchanged."

"You can not acheive that which you can not conceive."
