Thank you everyone for welcoming me to the team. I love baking and cooking and sewing, other crafts and i have a small farm. Unfortunately i never learned how to knit, but would like to someday. I remember my mother and grandmother making booties every year for Christmas presents, it was my job to make the pom poms for them. lol. Here's to the New Year, and new achievements. Thank you again, Kathy

to SparkPeople and the team. 10 children! Wow! My hat is off to you. While I can't imagine what that is like, I do have stress that led to my HPB. I have had to learn to make time for myself when I can relax with a nice cup of herbal tea and read, usually something uplifting from Church. When the kids were still at home, that was usually after they were in bed and hubby was watching tv. Now that they are gone I have more time to devote to study and crafts. Do you knit or crochet? Those 2 can be relaxing while making something nice for one of the kids. I also listen to uplifting audio talks/lessons while cooking. Just suggesting things I do.

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

I am a mom of 10, my oldest is 20, my youngest is 4 months. I need to loose 100 pounds and get my blood pressure and cholesterol under control, however i have a bad habit of neglecting myself, my needs. My mother passed in 2002, and she was my best friend. I have had increasingly more episodes with depression and social anxiety, and food seems to be my comfort. I have no close friends or family, besides my own children. I figured i would give this site a try. I really think if i improve my physical image, i will feel much better about myself, then i will have more confidence and start enjoying activities again that i used to enjoy. I am very tired and want to improve my health so i can have more energy to do things with my children as well. I hope i can achieve my goals with the support of other people to encourage me when i fall down. Thank you for reading my intro and hope you have a Blessed New Year!
