Spiraling down an unhealthy path too long

I am 41 years old and have never been so unhealthy and fat in all my days. I hope to correct this this time even though I have tried several times and failed. This site seems to have more tools and people support than all the others.

I am a mother of boy/girl twins age 8. They are wonderful children. I have been married to my husband for 15+ years. We have known eachother since Jr. High. He is a wonderful man. I love him so. The only thing is he works mega, mega hours and ...

I am a mother of boy/girl twins age 8. They are wonderful children. I have been married to my husband for 15+ years. We have known eachother since Jr. High. He is a wonderful man. I love him so. The only thing is he works mega, mega hours and is never home. I feel like a single mother every day. It makes it hard to get out to exercise and do the things I would like to do for myself.

I have some health issues such as hyatal hernia and GERD. I suffer through a lot of pain in my body all the time which they think might be fibromyalgia. I also have had issues with a lump on my thyroid. Between the hyatal hernia and GERD and lump I cough constantly. I need to health out!

Hi and welcome to Spark People where you will find lots of information and tons of support and encouragement from all our members. You will find that we also have fun along the way. Drink your 8-8oz glasses of water a day (If you only drink one now, add to as you are able until you are drinking your 8 cups or more a day), watch your portion control (measure everything in the beginning...guaranteed it will get easier) and walk, dance or do any exercise you enjoy (start with 10 minutes a day or several times a day and add to it as you are able or have time). Use your fitness and nutrition tracker daily (guaranteed to work if you use them consistently and honestly). Pick one thing to change...one thing at a time. Don't try to change to many things at once as that can be very overwhelming. Just try to take one step, one minute, one hour, one day, one week at a time. They honestly will all add up to the bigger numbers. These tips will definitely help in lowering your numbers and increasing your ability to enjoy life. Don't expect miracles right away...this is a lifestyle change not a diet. You will be much healthier in the long run. Post any concerns, comments or questions you may have and someone will respond quickly.
Start each day with a positive thought just for that day. Reading and reflecting on an inspirational thought or message before you start your day can put you in a positive frame of mind.
Your thoughts determine whether you have a good day or a bad day. Fill your mind with positive ideas, suggestions, and thoughts. You will find it will change your attitude and changing your attitude can change your life.
Sometimes just reading an inspirational quote or a short paragraph helps one see the positive in a situation. Sometimes as your day progresses you just need to take a break...Take a mental break and read or think about a message of inspiration.
Never underestimate your power to change and improve! You are a good person, with wonderful qualities, and you can reach your goals! Sorry you have been laid off again. However it sounds like a great opportunity to spend some great time this summer with your children. Enjoy every day you have with them. I will keep your daughter in my prayers that her knee surgery goes well and she has complete and rapid healing.
If I can be of any help to you, please let me know with a spark mail or a comment on my page. I am here for you.
God bless you on your journey to a healthier you.
Hugs,
Helen
