What a wonderful incentive! Helping someone else is sometimes the best way to actually help yourself! But...
don't forget YOU are important, too, and remember that everyone, including you, is entitled to take the time for you alone!...
You'll find a lot of encouragement and some great tools here--AND, SP has a special sign-up for youngsters, too, a great place for them to find support from their peers! I know, a friend of mine who's a single Dad has a 15yr old...
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL
Hi, Im Samantha, Im 39 and a wife, mother, step mother, hairstylist, i have 2 children living at home. And i may have 2 more here soon. I am a step mother to a total of 14 kids and have one of my own. YES ITS ALOT!!!!!!! but I wouldnt change a thing... I am wanting to lose the weight for myself, my husband who I love with all my heart and is supporting me, and for the 2 children that may be moving in come June. I need to be able to keep up with a very VERY active10, and 11 year old. I may not weigh in much for I do not own a scale for they end up maken me stop for I dont see the results I want as fast as I want. Yes I know its not the scales fault but I also do not want the 11 year old to think that a life revolves around a number on a scale, Yes she is on the heavy side so I am hopeing that once she is here we can work out together even if it is just walking the dog, or walking around our neighborhood.
