I'm 51 yrs old and have been a member here for a while but got away from my trying to be healthy and left. I have returned because I need help getting back to healthy eating and exercise. My Dr has informed me of concerns about my health and told me I need to start eating low carb low fat. I need to really learn how to cook healthier. To me dieting has always been just baking or broiling foods but I want to learn how to make delicious healthy meals my whole family can enjoy. I have three daughters ages 30, 18, and 16. I also have 5 granddaughters. My oldest daughter lost her dad to a motorcycle accident earlier this year. She tells me to please get healthy because she couldn't handle losing me too. I've got to lose weight and get healthier not only for myself but for my family. "I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHICH STRENGTHENS ME"

My Goals:
My goal is to change my lifestyle and be a healthier me. I'm no longer calling it a diet just making healthier choices. My goal is to get to come off my 2 blood pressure meds and never go on diabetic meds. This goal will be met with Christ as my strength.

My Program:
My program is to not call this a diet because the first three letters are die. I just want to make healthier choices and exercise more. I want to get to a healthy weight and to become healthier.

Personal Information:
I am a 46 yr old, married woman from Alabama. I have 3 daughters and 3 grandaughters. I've always been an emotional eater but determined to change this with God's help.

Other Information:
My favorite quote is from the Bible- "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me".

When your down to nothing and God is up to something and the devil comes knocking at the door just simply say "Jesus can you get that for me"

    I'm on meds for bi-polar (six of them right now!) I know what it is like to have to deal with that along with trying to get healthy at the same time. I know everyone is different, but when I'm depressed, all I want to do is eat donuts and pastries....making being healthy a challenge. However, I've made progess, and I know you can too!

    Anyway, we've started our May challenge; please drop by and check it out. You can jump in at anytime during the month, though, so no rush! We also have an ongoing weekly challenge.

    For our bible readings & discussions, we are working our way through the Old Testament. The discussion is always OPEN, though....if you have a topic, throw it out there! (I can use all the help I can get coming up with two to three original questions every single day, ha-ha)

    Feel free to e-mail me if you ever need some extra support or a pat on the back.
    I look forward to getting to know you & good luck on your journey!
