I have been on and off again on sparkpeople since 2008. Some years have been better than others but the one thing I have found consistent is that I have always put others ahead of myself including my three children. At a party I had for my twin girls over a week ago a fellow mom put her hand on my stomach with the thought that I was expecting. I laughed and told her no that it was just stress. Instead of feeling sorry for myself I used that moment to motivate to move in a more positive direction. In one week's time, I have started a walking program with my mom and I have stopped ordering food while at work and bringing in my lunch with healthier choices. My next step will be to wean out the carbs but that will take me a while longer as this Italian girl loves her pasta...and bread...and cheese, lol.

    Hey! We would never say something like "prove me wrong" to you guys. How can we????? You just keep on keeping on and every time we hear from you, it's always phenomenal documentation!

    I hope I didn't say to prove me wrong. If I did, forgive me. I write to a lot of people and, if I said it, I didn't mean to.

    If I did, forgive me. I would never want to be a negative force here or anywhere else.

    Thanks Susan! This week has been rough...really need to do some food shopping for I am finding myself turning to pasta (carbs, carbs and more carbs!) to make for dinner for the family. Carbs are my weakness and my biggest culprit with my eating habits. sigh...

    Glad to see you're back again. My motto is never give up. Persistence is the key, at least i find it that way. Checking in as part of the weekly challenge. Keep up the good work. Susan
