<-- i love this kid (picture taken a few years ago when I was weighing 150)

NOTE:actual start weight 165.changed start weight when i changed diets...

hey y'all! i am cherish from ripley tennessee. i am 33 years old, been married for almost 12 years to my andy, and we have 3 awesome kids. my stepsons are drew (15)and zach (14),then our own little claire who is 8. Been a member here since 2008, and my greatest successes have been through using FS's tools. The only time I fail is when I give up, stop praying, and go with the flow. I am now over 15 pounds heavier than that day in 2008 when I first signed up, pre-diabetic, and have absolutely no cute clothes to wear.;-P LOL Although that little piece of info is true, it is no longer my focus. I need to be healthy for my family, for myself, but most of all for God's glory. I am in a body that He did not design for me, but rather one I designed for myself by not saying no to this nasty flesh of mine and eating when upset instead of going to Him in prayer. I know this is not an easy road,(believe me I've been down it before), but I have made the choice this time to give it all completely and wholly over to Him to do this through me. Although my "spirit is willing, but my flesh is weak", "I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me".

Ultimate goal is going to be 130, but I am planning for small goals along the way.

The Firm?
hi! YES i have the older version with the firm box,and i love it. it's my favorite workout,but i have to be careful not to do it everyday. it did take some time to learn the format of the workouts because they are so fast,but once i got it i started having soooo much fun. however, i don't know anything about the new firm's,i just know i like my firm box.

How has losing weight changed your life?
i can breathe!!! i can play in the floor with my little girl, and it's no longer an act of congress to get back out of the floor! i feel like i felt ten years ago only better because i'm not only getting skinny again-i'm in a lot better shape. there's a big difference,i feel, in just being skinny and actually being healthy. before i gained weight i was just skinny,but now i'm on my way to being healthy as well. that feels awesome!!thank You,Lord!
