I am a 12 year breast cancer survivor and also had a mild heart attack. In August 2015, I decided that since I made it through those events, I was not going to let my inactivity take years off the rest of my life. I saw something mentioned on MSN about SparkPeople and went online to check it out. I joined that day. Since then, I am proud to say that as of now I have lost 75 pounds and quite a few inches and was given the okay by my doctor to discontinue my cholesterol meds completely. I was able to discontinue my beta blocker and my blood pressure meds last year. I have so much energy and love to walk, which I do every day unless I am sick. No other excuses allowed.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in South Haven, Michigan but have been living in central Ohio for over 30 years. I love the outdoors and am a country gal at heart. I am married and DH and I live on a 5 acre wooded site surrounded by farm fields in a small rural town in the heart of Ohio. I have 3 married children and 7 grandchildren whom I love dearly.


Other Information:
I reached my weight goal of 138 pounds (+/- 3% 134/142) and since have regained 15 pounds. I am now working on getting that 15 pounds back off. Right now I seem to be on a plateau and am struggling. I am hoping that the challenges I am doing will make me accountable and help me shed those 15 pounds. I am geared up and ready to do this.

    I have had it before, its when crystals (that control balance) in my inner ear get out of alignment. If I am lucky they will go back in, if not I have to seek treatment at a dizziness clinic. They have this helmet they put on you so they can isolate your eye movement, and by that they can tell when head manipulations have worked to put the crystals in. Very expensive $180, but that was quite some years ago. The clinic I went to is long gone, but I see there is another one. Won't be open on weekends. I was lucky to be referred to this by a friend because it had just been assumed I had Meniere's, which I didn't. This treatment cured me.

    I have unsubscribed to some, and for some that didn't work. I will probably have to do some more and just stick with ones I think have good info on healing. Most of its on the health and wellness field, but also some on business, blog & book writing, coaching.

    First things first. You have to decide that you want to lose weight. Then you need to be committed to losing it. And next you have to have Faith in yourself that you can lose weight.

    Not only will you need Faith in yourself to lose the weight, but you are going to need Faith in God to lose weight. With out Faith we are nothing. God never meant for us to be nothing, He meant for us to have Him abide in us and for us to abide in Him as Healthy, Happy and Full of Faith in our selves and Faith in Him.

    As long as we have Faith in God there is nothing we cannot accomplish and the same is true in having Faith in ourselves. Our faith goes way beyond the pulpit, it extends to believing and loving what we cannot see unconditionally. So why is it that we cannot love what our God has created in His own image.

    Our bodies are a creation of our God's. He formed us with His own hands, so why aren't we doing what we need to take better care of ourselves. Don't we need to have Faith in ourselves?

    Let's take inventory of why we want to lose weight in the first place.
    1) Do you want to look better?
    2) Do you want to drop just a few pounds?
    3) Are you tired, out of breathe?
    4) Are you suffering from a major illness?
    5) Are you morbidly obese?
    6) Just can't see your toes anymore?
    7) Are you sleeping all the time?
    8) Tired of feeling over full every time you eat?

    Did I miss anything? Well, I think we need to start believing that we can stop over eating. Have Faith, Pray, God will listen. Use self talk, use motivational tools, provided hear on Spark People. Use motivational videos, keep a journal, write a blog and read your bible daily. Most of all pray before each meal. Don't be afraid to ask God for His help, that is what He is there for. Trust me He wants all His temples healthy too.

    Exercise is a must, be Christ like.... Jesus got in His daily walks. So when you hear some ask are you walking with Jesus, what will your answer be?

    How many hospitals don't have a chapel in it? There are so many missions, churches and other religious deities in this world today that provide healthcare and even weight loss information It would astound you. So yes, faith and weight loss go hand in hand.

    Know that you can do this, you can do all things through Christ. You are a winner, because you a child of God's and God does not make mistakes. You can track your meals, you can walk 10 + minutes daily, you can blog about your day and you can keep a journal and you can have FAITH in You, I have FAITH in YOU and I have Faith in GOD. We can do all things through God!!
