Well, here we go! I just joined SparksPeople one week ago. The struggle of blending a stressful job with a stressful family has left me with very little time or energy for myself. However, having recently turned fifty I realize that something has got to give. I have dealt with overweight and obesity long enough! I have joined up here because I realize I need some support from somewhere. This is not to say that I don't have support from my family and friends, just that they don't get it. They love me as I am, and that is a wonderful thing, but they don't understand the blows your self-esteem takes when "Lord help you" you have to look in a mirror! Lol!
I have started taking time for myself, to walk, to work out the old muscles, and am trying to make healthier choices in my eating habits. However, knowing me, I need to have some encouragement to continue when after a whole week of being a good girl I find that I still don't look like a supermodel. LOL! All donations are appreciated! : ))
