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"

Fitness Minutes: 4,095

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"

    In case you have not read my blog saying so, I want to let you know personally that I am leaving SP at the direction of God's Spirit in me. Not sure what the future holds, but I sense that the time spent here is needed for that work that is coming to me.

    I've been praying about what to leave my friends with as I prepare to leave SP. As I sit here today, knowing that I need to speak with each of you before I go, the thing in my heart is just to tell you like it is. I will miss you here on Spark. Spark is a very uplifting and positive environment, and that is because of friends like you. I will miss you, but I will not forget you. I am printing out my friend list with your pictures / icons and username on it, and I will be praying for you.

    I have put a link to my FaceBook page on my blog for those who would like to stay in touch there, and I reset my privacy settings so you can friend me. Be sure to include your username in a message on the friend add so I will know who you are. Also, if you would like to receive my devotionals and articles, you can send me an email address via my SparkMail and I will add you to my mailing list for Darlene's Ponderings. Whether we meet up on FB or in our futrure I have you in my heart and will continue to hope for your good progress in life.

    Until we meet again,
