I have a great group of family and friends and stay very busy and active but the one thing that I have been unable to gain control of is my fluctuating weight! I want to lose the weight for good this time and feel with the help of Sparkspeople I can do so!!

Good Morning Debbie,


Cancer is horrible thing for anyone to have to experience and it effects more than just the person that has the cancer. My brother has been battling with colon cancer for four years now. He has had three surgeries and chemo none stop and I think he is just really tired and we are all ready for him to go home to our father. He is in constant pain and is on very heavy pain killers. He lives in Florida so the only one there to help him through it is his 17 year old adopted daughter. I wish he would come home and be with his family but he has a lot of obligations there. I wanted to go see him but my mom talked me out of it cuz I wear my heart on my sleeve and she didn't want me to be crying all the time. He is a wonderful, giving, loving, and patient person and is so loved by everyone in our family.

Being a single mom is tough. My girls dad left when they were very young. I have raised them alone since than except for a very short period of time that I attempted to be married. That didn't go well and ended up hurting my kids more than helping them so now I just deal with being alone but not alone. I love my kids but not the same as being in love with a man. I have just accepted that that part of my life is on hold for at least 5 more years for the sake of my girls.

I could go on and on but gotta go to work. You are a very pretty woman btw...I am so frustrated today, now matter how much I work out and watch what I eat, I don't lose any weight aaaarrrrggg


Have a fantastic day

Hi Debbie...welcome to Sparkpeople. Love this site, been on it about a month. Lots of really nice people. Good Luck on your weight lose journey. I am struggling to lose 25 pounds, seems like it is tons of work when you hit your 40's.
