I am a Christian wife (23 years) to my wonderful husband, Brant, and mom to 9 awesome kids and 3 sons-in-laws, so far! I have been homeschooling for 16 years, enjoy quilting, scrapbooking, gardening, visiting Long Beach every chance I get, and of course, cooking! I'm a grandma to Madison and Noah and want to be around (here, not the shape!) for many more grandbabies to come!
This is actually my third time around here. The first, I lost 25 lbs. and 42 inches. Success in my book! But, I got lazy. My excuses started to pile up, and before I knew it, I stopped making them. I have gained all of the pounds back, but not all of the inches, so with this tiny bit of momentum, I will begin again! I don't care about the number on the scale, but I have set a goal to get my waist down to 32 inches...whatever it takes is my new motto!

My Goals:
Keep going...never give up! It is slow going for me, but I am seeing changes everyday. I've experienced some plateau's (some longer than others!), and am confident that I will be able to maintain once I reach my goals. I don't have a "finishing" weight, but am determined to be able to buy my clothes in the "normal-size" stores and hopefully, my daughters will be begging me to borrow my really cute clothes!

My Program:
12 glasses of water per day, minimum

Watch my carbs...oh, those beautiful carbs...I will miss you.

Cardio 3x's weekly
Strength 3x's weekly

Dessert every Sunday...okay, I'm not ready to give up ALL carbs!

Personal Information:
My name is Kimberly J, and I live in Washington state on a small farm in the country.

Other Information:
My Motto to Live By:
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, latte in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!" I know, I really should change that, but I think it will be more fun to just "tweak" it a little!

    Hi there!

    I am in search of talented Christian artist that need a little motivation or know others who need motivating in this area. I am a christian mother of 1 daughter who is a super talented artist. She was homeschooled from 6st grade through 12th & is now attending college. She needs a little more motivation in developing her artistic abilities, so I built a website sponsoring a christian art contest. I am hoping this will motivate her to get serious about her work when she sees other Christians that are serious about art. I just started the site and can really use some support getting it going. If you are an artist or have a child that is an artist and want to submit your artwork and enter the contest, that would be great. If you can’t participate, please pass on the link to others that may. I would even love it if you gave me some feedback or left a word of encouragement in the forum. The website is Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and may God Bless you!

    I saw you on Debbi's Spark Page, and noticed that you're from Washington state too! I'm originally from the Tri-Cities (SE part of WA), but now I live more central - N. Franklin area (think farming communities)! It's very nice a quiet around here.

    I was surprised to see that you're a grandma - you're so young looking! But your family is gorgeous, and I'm sure you're proud.

    Take care - hope to talk to you soon,
