Forever Change

I am 53, a widow since I was 39 and with my husband have had 5 children. All are grown except my son who is 17. After my husband passed away my focus was entirely my children and providing for them and making ends meet. I have gone up and down in my weight since then but in the last 1 - 11/2 years have seen a steady increase and I now have 30 - 40 lbs to loose.

I am 53, a widow since I was 39 and with my husband have had 5 children. All are grown except my son who is 17. After my husband passed away my focus was entirely my children and providing for them and making ends meet. I have gone up and down in my weight since then but in the last 1 - 11/2 years have seen a steady increase and I now have 30 - 40 lbs to loose. I have seen Spark People but until now I had not committed to being accountable because I think I lived in denial...I am going to get on track ...it's not that bad...I can easily get down... Whatever,... but my daughter is getting married in July and after getting together for some family pictures reality hit me.

Man have I gained weight!!!

So here I am. I want this to be a lifestyle change and not a diet or just a change until the wedding. That has been my history and I really want to forever stay on track. This is a way for me to be accountable and recognize what I am eating and how to correct it or make better choices.

Thanks and looking forward to a changed life!

.**✴.**✴
Your friendship has helped me grow.
Your encouragement has helped me
gain confidence in myself.
Knowing someone as caring as you has
made me more sensitive to the needs of others.
Your understanding has helped me to become
more open about my feelings, and listening
to your observations has made me
think a lot about what really matters.
Your friendship has made me see life
as something to be enjoyed. . .
especially with someone like you.
.**✴.**✴
Wishing you a Wonderful Weekend!
Hugs, Teresa

Obstacles don't have to stop you.
If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up.
Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.

A friend is like a shade tree
Beside a summer way.
A friend is like the sunshine
That makes a perfect day.
A friend is like a flower
That's worn close to the heart.
A friend is like a treasure
With which one will not part.
