Starting a new and healthy life style

I am a single mom of one son. He is 12 years old and is very smart. He is the light of my life and I don't want anything to happen to him or my self - so we are going to change. We are both overweight and we are trying to change this pattern in our life to become healthier. I have been overweight all my life and I am just sick of it. Something has to change. I was taught to clean my plate as a child and that has been passed on to my son. I know how it feels to be teased as an overweight ...

We are both overweight and we are trying to change this pattern in our life to become healthier. I have been overweight all my life and I am just sick of it. Something has to change. I was taught to clean my plate as a child and that has been passed on to my son. I know how it feels to be teased as an overweight child and I don't want that for my son. We have had a hard life with the physical, verbal and emotional abuse my ex-husband has put us through - but now that he is out of our life we can move on and change for the better. The put downs are now gone.
I have prayed for help from God because I know that we can not do this alone. But with the help from our Father above all things are possible.

ello & Welcome Lady,

Good to have you with us here at Single Parents and any other teams you may join. I'll help you through your journey if you need it. I'm here to support and encourage you forward. If you fall back, I'm here to catch you and show you the right direction if need be.

I'll try to be supportive to you and to encourage you on the journey you are taking. I'll be along side you to your goal(s) and all the way. And to you good luck and to take 1 day at a time. Take advantage of what Spark has to offer. I would like to see you accomplish the goal(s) you have and I'm there for you too.
Stay focused and have a positive attitude, b/c those will help you in the long way............... It's good to meet and have you with us.

To STAY MOTIVATED I DO THIS ALL THE TIME:::
1) come in and read the posts
2) read and join any teams that you think you like
3) get it know the people
4) read some articles
5) most of all :: have fun and enjoy yourself
You are doing great, making progress every time you come in.

If there is anything that I can do to help, give me a holler. If I do not know the answer, I will find it. Our leaders are really great and help when you need it too. So don't hesitate to ask. That is why they are here.

Don't give into your temptations. They are bad and will set you back. You want to move forward, have good habits (like eating your veggies, fruits) and come in here. We all are here for you and other members too.

My name is ERNA and if you need help on this site; I will try to help you if I can.....I'm a single parent of 3 grown sons ages 36, 31, and 18... It's been hard on me b/c I had raised them basically all by myself without any help and I did make it.....
