Shared Food Tracker
I am going to be 35 this year, and can honestly say I have never been thin. I want to lose 160 lbs to get to my ideal weight. I am a mother of six boys, four still at home, and i want to be active in their lives not just a spectator. I want to show them a healthy mother not just tell them what is or isn't healthy. I have a crazy busy life, but it is time to take care of me. I have to do this so i will be around for my boys for a very long time.
to lose alot of weight, get fit ,in shape, and healthy, be able to enjoy life with my boys, and to be able to shop for clothes in the little peoples section...lol
balanced eating plan trying to go low fat and keep fresh fruits and vegies in the plan and exercise daily.
i was born in south carolina, but i live in indiana now. i am married with six kids. (a yours mine and ours makeup)firstname.lastname@example.org

Hey Het! How was last Friday - did you do anything for Beau's bday? Your baby!
You're getting closer to your vacation. Are you ready? Already packing?
Ting's doing Sparkpeople with me now, walking everyday and checking his blood sugar and blood pressure every day. For SP, he's really just having me log in all of his stuff but he's scared himself with a constant 'pain' in his back right side (kidney area) so he's trying to get on the 'straight and narrow'. Of course, I can't get him to the doc and I'm so sure that he's having problems with his kidneys.
I hope you are doing well. Miss ya tons! Keep Sparking - you've been doing awesome so keep at it!!

Thanks for your encouragement. Yep, I'm really battling the funk. I will go pick up some nuts today. I did do that before and it does help. When we weren't with Tina, I could control the food in my kitchen. But since staying with her - she keeps all kinds of junk food around. UGH. She's a stinkin size 2/4. She doesn't really eat the stuff (hence her size) which makes me always wonder whys she buys those things (chocolate chip cookies, candy bars, ice cream, chips - well, she does eat chips).
Aw, Beau will be 7 on Friday. I can't believe it . Our babies do grow up so fast. Are you guys doing anything special this Friday?
So, where are you going on vacation? I am pretty sure you told me but, well, my memory is that of a dead person - ain't got one, ha!
Love ya, miss ya,

Hey! I know what you mean about missing each other more - I'm having one of those days too. Every day I miss ya but I'd kill to be home and hanging with ya today.
I knew I had text messages but I didn't know from who. My phone memory was full and so the phone said I had rejected text messages. Sorry I missed ya :( I did clean up my phone so I'm good to be texting now.
Ting used to be a manger at that BK there (many moons ago). BK, McD's - it's all the same really and there we would be home (home sweet home). He has been having some back pain for a week now. I'm worried about his kidneys and honestly the amount of time he will really be around. I know at some point (while Nathan is young) I will be a single parent. Scary thought, really. But, at least I can mentally prepare myself for the future which means I need to physically prepare myself for the future (education, savings, and my health!).
So, I'm in a bit of a Sparky funk (btw I am soooo proud of you for being in the 270's and jealous in a good way). I'm really craving salt in the evening (and I never crave salty stuff - chocolate yes, salt no). The last few nights I really messed up in the evening. UGH. AND THEN, I am mentally self sabotaging - I know this is crazy and I can tell you. But, I am really really worried about all the sagging skin after losing weight. I know losing weight will mean I am being healthier but ugh all of that skin and I don't think it will all bounce back and surgeries are hecka expensive! Oddly enough, this is making not want to lose weight (although I will continue to try my darnest to lose). It dawned on me yesterday that by thinking this way I am sabotaging myself - how dumb is this????
Okay, those are my ramblings. Thank you my friend for 'listening'. Again, I am so proud of you for being in the 270's - just keep at it no matter how slow a process this can be! How exciting you've got your radishes and tomatoes - yay! Nathan has a little blueberry bush and he eats a few blueberries off of it each week - it's cute!
Yeah, I have the picture of us at the airport when you visited in Washington. Amazing how the years have gone by. I'm glad we've been friends all these years .
I'll text you later today with my hotmail address so that you can send me pics of Beau's performance at school.
I did not proofread this post so I hope it makes sense

Hey!! Just checked my emails - can't believe you have those pics!! We were actually young once- ha! The email you sent me of Beau didn't come through though :( Do you have my hotmail email address? If so, maybe send it there. Also, I check that one almost daily. If you don't have it - let me know and I will email it to you.
How are you doing? Are you still Sparking? I'm at a bit of a standstill - 297-298 (but at least still under 300 pounds - whoo hoo). I'm trying to do push-ups which are soooo not easy and lose 20 pounds over summer break (also, sooo not easy).
Ting interviewed at McD's for a franchise (guy has 30 stores) so we'll see. He's a bit bummed to be returning to McD's (if he gets a job there) but it's better than no money.
How's summer break so far? How's the garden?
Miss ya, love ya,
