Hi I'm Cynthia! **WELCOME** to my page!

***SURPRISE!!*** User Name change! Once AROSEFORC; Now HLTHAPPINESS4C it is! Why the change? It's because I need a daily reminder of what my goals are to be. Happy and Healthy & SO DONE BEING THE FAT GIRL!!

Now when I mean happy I don't mean goody goody happy joy everything's perfect and wonderful. I mean happy as in to be content and thankful even in the difficult circumstances. To find my Happiness and Joy in the Lord, not just during the Good times, but through the Trials as well..

I don't always know where I'm going as I don't always follow the given path, but I know I am wonderfully and fearfully made. I can not fail with Christ! My mantra is I CAN and WILL BE VICTORIOUS. You CAN too!

I've been a sparkler here for about 7 years now. It's been quite the journey. I started out at 170 my highest weight ever and I was ready to do whatever it took to lose the weight. (healthy ways) After a couple of years I came so close to my goal weight of 130 lbs. I felt on top of the world, but it was short lived. I have struggled with Binge Eating Disorder for years and it reared its ugly head and I all but gave up. Needless to say I have regained all of the weight back + a few more. I've also struggled with Fibromyalgia and arthritis the past 5 years. making it very difficult to function and do daily tasks which includes exercise.But I believe through Christ I can do ALL things. I can and will overcome!

My biggest accomplishment is that on February 29,2008 I quit smoking and with that came the gift of being able to breathe. That gift of fresh air opened the door to this journey!

I came to Spark People lonely, sad, frustrated with myself about the shape I had let myself get into. I didn't know a thing about fitness and nutrition, but in the years that I have been here I have learned a lot. I might not always follow the path that leads to victory, but I try where I can from veering too far off. And even when I seem to be falling from a cliff...He is there to catch me and get me back on track.....and so are my wonderful SP friends! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support!

Again: I CAN and WILL succeed and so CAN YOU!!


Happy Spring 2016!!

Trees have budded and are now fully out here. Flowers are blooming. Sunshine is Out Love So LOVE SC spring time. It's perfect for walking downtown or to the parks. Now I just need to get out there and DO IT!!

Even though SC is the palmetto State and Georgia is called the peach state....we in SC actually grow more peaches. WHO KNEW?!! LOL

**Celebrated my 8 year Sparkversary on March 30th 2016.**
Wow how time has flown. Although my weight has yo yoed throughout the years, I have learned a great deal here in my journey at spark people. I've also made a lot of great friends. Love y'all very much.

Here's to a Happy Healthy Spring!!
