Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

Hi Lorraine just want to welcome you to the Oregon Team. It is a great team and will be lots of help to you and your family.
My prayers go out to your DH over there. And also my thanks as well. My DH was in the Air Force when he was young.
That is wonderful for the Kids to do that, I agree with you I think for Kids 10 miles will be enough.
Hugs Rosalyn

Rosalyn Larson I am so happy to be on Maintenance.
It took 2 years but it was worth it. I am going to keep it in a 5#s range up or down. My Promise is I will never ever do that to myself again-----Rosalyn

Thank you for the welcome. I know I need to be active. I'm planning on starting out with walking, working my way up to jogging. My youngest child was diagnosed with Type I (insulin dependent) diabetes last year. We've been working really hard on getting his health on track with proper eating etc...Anyway, the American Diabetes Association has what they call the Tour de Cure, which is a road bike ride to raise money for diabetes research. This ride can be from 10 to 100 miles long. I suggested to my son, and my other children, that maybe we could form a team and to ride in it next week. I was thinking along the lines of the 10 miles, my kids want to do the 100 miler. emoticon LOL. I told them we'll have to work on it and see what happens. Who knows a year from now I may be able to do it. Thanks for the encouragement to get started.

emoticon Thank you for supporting your husband as he stands up for our country. It is amazing to me that once you decide to do something and actually follow through how other things fall into place. Good luck with your goals.

Hi Lorraine and welcome!

You are so right - exercise is a GREAT stress-buster. I started running three months ago and now run 4 or 5 times a week, totalling 20 - 25ish miles. Not only am I losing weight, but I also feel a lot calmer, more able to focus, and more in control of myself. Of course you don't have to run - you can lift weights, swim, walk, whatever. But if you do it vigorously and for an extended period of time I think you will find a myriad of benefits. Having teenagers in the house is stressful enough, but add huby in Iraq....yeah, you need all the stress-relief you can get!

Best wishes to you and your family. And thank you to your DH for serving our country!

Hello my name is Lorraine. I've known about SparkPeople for over a year. I've started and stopped using it multiple times. I'm hoping to stick with it this time. I have been married for 19 years this year and have four teenage kids. I work from home, so don't get out much. My husband is in the military and currently deployed to Iraq. So, I'm feeling a lot stressed, a little depressed, and very lonely. I'm making getting physically active my goal to help time pass by more quickly.
