I have had a weight problem ever since I was a child. I remember how focused my family was on it. When I was in fifth grade, I met a pediatrician who got me a diet I could manage myself and I became pretty empowered and lost a great deal of weight.

I have had a weight problem ever since I was a child. I remember how focused my family was on it. When I was in fifth grade, I met a pediatrician who got me a diet I could manage myself and I became pretty empowered and lost a great deal of weight. When I went to college, when most people gain weight I lost and kept it off pretty well until after my first child. About the age of 40, I mentally became tired and threw in the towel. Unfortunately the pounds started to sneak up on me. At 55 I got on the scale and realized I could be considered obese. Also my blood pressure was up and my liver enzymes and my calcium levels were out of whack. I knew I had to gain control again, or I won't be able to enjoy my grandchildren.

I been with Spark People for three and a half years now. I am not where I want to be but my doctors have seen a radical improvement in all the things that were going bad. I am still working toward my goal weight but enjoying life as it comes.

Thanks Barb...it is better. I keep finding ways that help it and hot soup, hot cocoa, stretching and 9 hours of sleep last night. I think it might have been my sinuses...I just hate having sinus problems!
Stay warm up there and don't work too hard this week!! emoticon

No, that doesn't sound selfish want some time for yourself! Sometimes, and I know I have done that, we put everyone and everything else before our needs and then we burn out fast! If we do that we are no good for anyone, even ourselves. I have learned a lot about that here on SP, with all their helpful articles and sure feel better for it. Hope your weekend is a nice one and you get some de-stressing time in! Sorry the school kids are having problems...hope it gets better soon! emoticon

Thank you so much for the Goodie. They can really be hard to deal with some days, can't they? Mine are the result of an accident in '97 and they call it a Chronic Pain Syndrome where I go into a muscle spasm I can try to catch and control. Hugs and have a relaxing weekend. emoticon
