I'm a stay at home / work from home mom to my 8 year old son. I'm an ebayer & work part time as a pre-school teacher's aide at a private Catholic school. Spark is my way of connecting to the outside world & I'm always looking for new friends! :)

I have lost alot of weight- I was at about 250lbs while pregnant --- My highest while not pregnant was somewhere around 200lbs :(
I met goal a few years ago and maintained for awhile. But I have been battling the same regained/relossed/ regained 10-15 pounds for the last 2 years... It's time to get serious again & finally get rid of these same last 10 pounds, for good.
I have several chronic gi conditions which complicate this process, but I'm learning to do my best for my situation/conditions.

Always looking for new friends- so if you want to join me on this journey- friend me & let's make this happen!

Thank you - Yes, Ray is doing well. He gets really shaken up when he falls and also bruised and battered - at 93, his skin is so thin!

I'm back on track today and hope to be back to normal tomorrow. Whatever normal is, lol.

Thank you for caring!

Sorry, things have been crazy. The kids have been out for almost a month and we have only done half of their Summer Bucket Lists.

Bailie appears to be doing better. She stopped complaining and I have stopped asking how she was feeling. She has her follow-up next Thursday with the neurologist.

My sister had a big scare with her health. Not cancer, but something to with the possibility of becoming paralzied. She got some good news and things are at bad as excepted....but that is a long long story. She has some neurological issues and strokes and stuff.

Xander had a good 6month follow-up with is GI dr. If all goes well, in a year or less 100% off medicines except when needed. That will be a miracle for the first time in his life no meds to poop.....Praising God now for just how far he has come.

I am in a whole. I am depressed and in a mood. My gut is full of gas and I too the duculax yesterday, but still I am full of gas. I had some wheat, a lot Monday and well I think I am paying for it.

The renters of our Orlando house is looking to move. Only they never told us. We found out Sunday when we went up to repair the door into the attic. We came into the house to say hello to her mom and BOOM boxes everywhere. I looked at her and said are you moving? She had a nervous laugh and said yes. They are hoping to close in the July on a bigger and older house. I wished them luck and was hurt they never said anything. In fact the husband was not very talkative to us.

Well, we spent the ride home worring about how long will it take to turn the house around. How long can we afford to float the rent. We came home and opened some beer and saluted to the next chapter of our life. The next morning God provide for us. Their daughter and boyfriend wants to rent from us. I talked to Tom. I then talked to the mother.....if they close on the house we will be okay. We will rent to the couple and they will continue to care for the house.

Praising God for providing when we needed His help most!!!!

Now to get my butt moving.


Good luck on the reset of your goals and ticker.

This has to be our year, just has to be.

Have good night and a safe 4th!!!

I will try to keep you focused and would appreciate whatever you think might help keep me in line. I must warn you, as an "old dawg" I am rather set in my ways and don't always mind, lol.
