More about me. Well it is my page!!!

Tuesday, August 29, 2006

I have 3 beautiful daughters 17, 8, and7 the 17 year old is the hardest!! I am trying to loose weight after 4 surgeries on my spine. I was big before and I have never been skinny but I gained a lot of weight when I was sick. I also quit smoking in the middle of the mess and had some problems with depression. I sat in bed and ate natcho cheese crunchies and felt sorry for myself. Not my finest hour!! I wasn't alowed to bend at the waist or lift anything heavier than a coffee cup for 10 months. I cheated and made meals and did dishes because 10 months is a long time but it was hard and it hurt. So I'm working on me now!! I'm healing pretty well this time and I'm going back to work in Sept. I am an Occupational Therapy Assistant and Behavioral Interventionist. Sounds impressive but basically I get to play with kids and get paid. Not a bad line of work!! I work with kids with special needs. I love it. Maybe I will feel better when I get my life back.!! I have a pretty good one!! :o)

    Hi Adriann,

    I should probably be doing some work this morning, but decided to spend a bit of time on Sparks. I have told so many people about this sight and how it helped the both of us. I am feeling disappointed in myself because I have not been doing very good with my eating lately and have been putting weight on instead of taking it off. It felt so good to be losing weight and seeing myself get smaller and firmer and my clothes getting looser. Even my kids and husband really noticed the difference.

    But lately I've been finding myself chosing to give up and go back to old habits. I don't want to do that. I know I have still been making some good healthy choices, but each day I give in a little more.

    Pray for me that I will draw upon the strength that God has provided within me (and you too) to resist temptation and do what I know is right.

    Love ya.

    Have a good day.
