I am a Mom of 4 - #1 is my 13 year old daughter, #2 is my 11 year old son, Kaity is #3, our angel who would have been 9 this year, and #4 is our rough and tumble rainbow at 4 years old. I talk to my kids about living healthy all the time, and I think it's about time that I start walking the talk. I gained weight with having the kids, but after losing our daughter I gained 25 pounds in a year (on top of the baby weight, which pushed me to about 40 pounds overweight) - after having our 4th child I lost 38 pounds, but after a year of losing I started regaining and ended up back at my heaviest weight within 2 years :( It's time to start again, and this time, stick with the lifestyle change!

    Hi! Long time, no see!
    I hope you're doing great and you had a nice and relaxing summer.
    So, are you taking part in the tri-race tomorrow? I hope you are! I just remembered and stopped by to wish you the very best of luck! I know how hard it will be, with the anniversary and all the memories that will be coming back. I'll be sending you all my positive thoughts.
    You've been missed.

    Thank you for your sweet comments on my blogs! You've been a great Sparkfriend for me, too! And I believe you have the confidence and the positive attitude inside you. And you'll be able to use them when the time is right. Sometimes, even though we know exactly what to do to get to our goals, something is just not working out. There's a piece missing from the puzzle. We don't know what it is and probably we never will but at some point the puzzle will just complete itself and we'll be ready to move on.
    How's the training going? Any good plans for the summer?
    I was thinking about you the other day as I was reading a guide. "Ontario: A guide to newcomers for the first days." No, nothing is certain yet but it could be a future option and I like to be prepared!
    I hope you're doing great.
    Take care!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and for sharing your views and experience. I don't think you're an anomally around here. Not at all! Each of us uses this site in the most suitable way for him or her. I was on and off Sparkpeople for the first two years but I always had it on the back of my mind that I had to put it to good use. I believe you're a very good Sparkfriend and I always read your blogs which always have interesting views and attitudes that I find right.
    So, keep on being here for as much as it is convenient for you and trying to find the way that works best for you. As you said, slow and steady wins the race!
