My New Life in a new Community

I have been a member for a couple years now under Bgailsews but lost all my teams, pages and everything else I had saved. So this is truely a 'starting over' day and it will take a while to get it all set up again. I was panicing over losing all my Spark Friends but I found you all again. Bear with me!

Fitness Minutes: 125,525

My Goals:
Goals are not easy to keep but they are a reminder. I am eating more fruits and fresh vegetables (lots of salads w/LowFat Ranch Dressing. I very seldom fry chicken, although it is my very favorite. Red meat is not my favorite so I rarely eat it and then it is just a small portion. Much cheaper on the grocery bill. My downfall is bread but most of it is whole grain wheat. I use pepper instead of salt because I think I get enough otherwise.

My Program:
I walk the halls and stairs in our building for exercise and rarely take the elevator. It takes about a half hour to walk the whole building and I don't have to worry about weather.

Personal Information:
I have been living in a 55+ apartment complex for a year now and it is very nice. There are many new friends to visit with in the social room downstairs but I don't go everyday.

Other Information:
I read all the time and spend many hours on spark pages, probably too much but I have an addictive personality.

Thanks so much for your support. I am moving forward. I have learned from my mistakes, but unfortunately, keep doing them. But, I guess that has happened to a lot of us. It is a new month and the first Monday in August. I am determined to lose some weight before the teachers come back on August 19th. Even if it's a couple of pounds.

Thank you so much for the bear hug, Brenda! We can make the best of what hand we're dealt. I'm learning, slowly but surely. I really appreciate your input!

NO! I don't want to control my son! I want him to be a free thinker like I am. TOO many people are 'sheep'! I even wrote in my blog 'I have to figure out a way to get Mikhail not to decide to only wear one pair of shorts out of 5 that are all exactly the same, but I will not make him wear khakis because that's what ALL parents make their kids wear!!!'

I think breaking a kid's Spirit is child abuse. Controlling parents usually break a kid's Spirit! I believe I'm one of the few people who was able to mend a broken Spirit. Usually the damage is done & that's that!

Brenda,
You missed my point about the shorts. I DID let Mikhail pick them out. ALL of them! The blue shorts were trash....they were stained & torn. I don't think it's cruel to have my son look decent. He gets to wear the clothes he wants as long as they are clean, are the right size and look like they are supposed to. Only ONE of those things was true about his shorts....they were the right size. He IS allowed to dress the way he wants, but I'm not going to allow him to wear a thing that looks like it belongs in the trash.

I respect your opinion & I agree with it.
