Im a busy busy mom, I have four completely awesome kids, one in college, another about to graduate from high school, a social butterfly teen, and a very energetic son. I work full time as a server/bartender/sales assistant, homeschool my two youngest children, attend classes online to earn my degree in Health and Human Services, and am the full time caretaker for my mother who suffered a stroke 9 months ago. Three months ago I was diagnosed with type 2 diabeties, and I desided I will not allow food to kill me and take me from my children!
I am currently trying to lower my carb intake and most importantly make sure I track everyday..Knowing that whatever I put in my mouth I will have to account for later is so helpful!
Take it one mouthful at a time.

Thanks for adding me!!! And your encouragement on my blog. You are right, it does make a world of difference knowing that others are with you in this journey. We're all human, we make mistakes, we fall, but we just have to pick ourselves up and continue on. One day at a time! I wish you the very best and good luck! I'm around if you need anything!!!

Thanks for adding me as a friend! You are certainly one busy lady! I'm glad you are trying to make time to take care of yourself. With so many people depending on you I know it must be hard, but if you don't take care of yourself you can't take care of those you love. Make sure to take time for yourself. You'll be a better you if you do! Libbie

Check out the main page of the EE team- there are stickied topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.*¨¸.´¸.*¨(¸.´ (¸.´ (¸.´¸¸.¨¸♥¨`*,¸.*´¨`* .¸♥. ¸.♥´ .´¨¨ ¸´¸.´¸.*¨)¸¸.´ ..-~'¸.*¨)
Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. Ive been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.¨¸♥¨`*,¸.*´¨`* .¸♥.*.*¨¸.´¸.*
