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!

Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.

**◆**◆**
The Gift Of Knowing You
There are gifts of many treasures
For both the young and old,
From the tiniest little trinkets
To great boxes filled with gold.

But, put them all together
And they could not stand in lieu,
Of the greatest gift of all
The gift of knowing you.

When your times are filled with troubles
Sadness, grief, or even doubt,
When all those things you planned on
Just aren't turning out.

Just turn and look behind you
From the place at which you stand,
And look for me through the shadows
And reach out for my hand.

I will lift from you your burden
And cry for you your tears,
Bear the pain of all your sorrows
Though it may be for a thousand years.

For in the end I would be happy
To have helped you start anew,
It's a small price to pay
For the gift of knowing you.
