My life has been a struggle. Two steps forward, sometimes five steps backwards. Basically in and out of physical accidents, emotional crisis, most bigger than life circumstances. It wears you down. How many times must I climb the mountain to finally stay there. Now is my final race,45 lbs up from a car accident. now healed after 12 1/2 years. Only to have perscription damage and go up 75 pounds-25 pounds at a time. Almost physically back to normal . Back to spark again where my cholesterol showed 35 points down when I was at my highest weight. Now I found out that I have a plak in a valve to my heart caused by the impact to the stiring wheel in that car accident. I am doing things to dissolve the calcium deposits in my front valve. But this is my last race, and my final one. I am trying to stay physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually stable.No more excuses to my self about whatever stress comes along and bing eating. This is serious! No more games. When I reach my goal, at the mountain top, I know I will get back so many things I have lost long ago, and I will try to just ignore the emotional hole I am trying to fill! I am a rock!!!

Member Since: 10/29/2011

Fitness Minutes: 15,287

My Goals:
I would like to finally conquer my fears, and keep my health stable. As well as growing stronger in faith by knowing God's Word.


My Program:
I am learning more about maintaining a healthy life style, as well as cooking healthier. I am learning to release my fears to god, so that I won't keep this pattern of mindless eating which leads to self destruction.



Personal Information:
I am the daughter of immigrant parents, first generation. I was born over seas in a city in Germany that was like a resort, because the whole city was a spa. My family has some members named after the bible. I am the grand daughter of Joseph, and the child of Mary. I guess I am glad I didn't have a child, because I would have named him Christ-short for Christopher-or Chris Christopherson, ha ha. My mom remarried a chef when I was fifteen years old. But I never paid atten-tion to cooking till I was on my own.


Other Information:
I live in Michigan where we have four seasons. What has been constant in my life is that animals have come into my life. I have done rescue. "But little did I know they were rescuing me. I am very empathetic, and it shows in my writings. My unconditional love was shared by my animals. And they say that humans can never know this, except thru God.

    People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.
    Love them anyway.
    If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
    Do good anyway.
    If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
    Succeed anyway.
    The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
    Do good anyway.
    Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
    Be honest and frank anyway.
    The biggest person with the biggest ideas can be
    shot down by the smallest person with the smallest mind.
    Think big anyway.
    What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
    Build anyway.
    People really need help but may attack if you help them.
    Help people anyway.
    Give the world the best you have and you might get kicked in the teeth.
    Give the world the best you've got anyway.

    This journey isn't about the strong or weak, but about those that endure!

    "An open heart fills itself, and over flows to cherish others. To fail, and try again is human. By excepting our actions we painfully grow into mature humans. It is only in our action that we learn who we are, what we need, and what we can become!" by eva herz

    “The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation.
    Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or
    whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what?
    After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation
    comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.”
    -John C. Maxwell

    "The purpose of life is to matter, to count, to stand for something; to have it make some difference that we lived at all."--Leo Rosten

    If the only way to make life worth living is to make every day count for something truly special, why do so many people allow so many days to slip slide away, inadvertently permitting the best of times to pass them by as well? Good question; yet the answers are never so easy.

    More likely than not, they don't see themselves as a person who comes out on top; a winner who deserves to live life to its fullest. Yet that is precisely what our Creator made each and every one of us to be. A winner worthy of enjoying the greatest treasures life offers up daily. None of us, not even one of us, is incapable of coming out on top.

    But we need to face the music here; the only way we're going to make our lives everything we have ever imagined they could be and should be is to stop counting those days as they pass us by and instead start making the days count — right here and right now. We need them to count for something super extraordinary, something super sensational and something that words alone can never express.

    Time after time, the only difference between living your life the way it was meant to be lived and living a life that consistently comes up short is whether or not you really made a difference. So why not make that big difference by making a difference in the way you utilize your days, starting right now?
