Hi Donna, welcome :) I'm Heather, 29, single mom to 2 girls, Lola (8yrs) & Alana (7yrs). I can relate to you, as I've battled with my weight issues for most of my life...been up and down..mostly up, quite a bit. I've definitely let stress and being hurt (at times, completely beaten down heartbroken) get me completely down and take over physically, but it's things we learn from and it makes us stronger and appreciate amazing things will happen later (dear God, I hope so!)
I wish you lots of luck in reaching all your goals and don't let anything get you down. It's a new year. Things can be totally different!
My name is Donna, I'm 26, and I am a single parent to my 4 year old son, Thomas. I've struggled with my weight all my life, but it got worse after I had my son, then my marriage got very stressful and ended in divorce. I hit rock bottom, and was extremely depressed. That was last August, and I've had enough of moping around hoping for a miracle. I put my body in this mess and it's up to me to put it right. Now is the time to do it!
I am seeking some encouragement from my fellow Sparks. :)
I'm glad to be a part of this team, and I wish you all the very best on your journeys!!
