SparkPoints: 43,860

Fitness Minutes: 38,675

My Goals:
Lose 10 more pounds by week of April 7th, 2013

Done!

6-1-13 Maintain my 20 pound loss for now. Lose 10 more in the future.

My Program:
Stay within my calorie range!

Personal Information:
I am the person I most wanted not to be. As a child if you asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I said a mommy. As soon as I became one I knew that to lose a child would be the worst possible thing that could ever happen to a mother. I prayed it would never happen to me. But it did. I am a Gold Star Mother. Our youngest son was killed in the war.

There are times when I feel that I am the saddest person in the world. Yet my friends still love me. I know too many other bereaved parents. I try to be there for those who have just started the journey, though I know I canít take the pain away. There are too many of us. For those who donít know how we feel, we hope they never find out.



Other Information:
My best chance of dealing with this is to keep busy. Since my elderly mother lives with us now that doesn't seem to be a problem.

Life verse: Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. II Timothy 2:15 KJV

Thanks for welcoming me to your Sarcasm team. I just read your page and see you are a Blue Star Mom. My condolences and utmost respect on the death of your son. My son is a 2nd Lt. in the Army. His career is just beginning, but I know he'll be deployed at some point. You've lived my biggest fear. Many, many hugs to you!

An Irish Christmas Blessing

The light of the Christmas star to you
The warmth of home and hearth to you
The cheer and good will of friends to you
The hope of a childlike heart to you
The joy of a thousand angels to you
The love of the Son and
God's peace to you.

Merry Christmas Sal!
