My name is Karen. I am a mother to four wonderful sons, all grown and married, so I also have four daughters now. They have given me nine grandchildren with number ten coming in January! I was divorced Aug. 2015. After a 32 year marriage. Now I am single and with the kids grown, I am mapping out the next chapters in my life. I have decided I can afford to be selfish and spend some time on myself this chapter. I have started a ton of times on Sparkpeople, although I kept coming back. Failing to stick with anything during any of my diet attempts. Looking for friends to help me motivate my way to a healthy lifestyle instead of a new diet fail. I've never been skinny. I don't know what to imagine. Being healthy and able to have some energy for my grandchildren would be nice. To be happy with myself would be amazing too!

My Goals:
I know for me, small goals are going to be key! I need to drink 8 glasses of water a day. I will start with 10- pound losses! I will need to add excercise. Even walking is going to be tough with my foot pain, but not impossible. I will get a pedometer and work on counting steps. I want to do the 5 fruits and veggies a day, to begin eating healthy. Logging in to Sparkpeople everyday and tracking my meals and snacks, to be honest to myself, and keep myself motivated. All these small steps will help get me there.

    emoticon emoticon Recipe for Christmas All Year Long emoticon emoticon

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Take a heap of child-like wonder that opens up our eyes
    To the unexpected gifts in life...each day a sweet surprise.
    Mix in fond appreciation, for the people whom we know;
    Like festive Christmas candles...each one has a special glow.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Add some giggles and some laughter, and a dash of Christmas food,
    Amazing how a piece of pie can change our attitude
    Stir it all with human kindness and wrap it up in love and peace,
    Decorate with optimism, and our joy will never cease.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    If we use this healthy recipe,We know we will remember
    To be in the Christmas spirit, even when it's not December.
