My NEW YEAR will be starting soon and as I reflect on 2013, I know that a lot of what a wished for and strived for did not come to be. I started out loosing some weight ( 16 lbs. ). Was feeling better, but there where set backs. Between family, work, no work, starting up a business, horse accident , dealing with pain and no insurance its taken a toll on me. This past few months have been a weight gain turmoil. I have put on another 10 pounds!!! This is the heaviest I have ever been.
Besides making changes in my eating habits and exercise , my home will be a very busy place. January 10th my husband and I will be making a 3 hour trip to help move my Son, his wife and my two grandsons!!! They are moving in with us for a while . where they where living at they have not had any luck in getting jobs. So maybe with my little boys being here I will get the motivation to lose this weight again. And maybe keep it off once and for all.
So this brings me to my NEW YEARS RESOLUTION!!!! To become healthy , have more stamina, and be here for my GRANDSONS!!!!!!

Look out 2014-------- Here I Come!!!!

    Hi Gram....

    I'm the new leader of the Westmoreland Sparkers' team. I know how it is to try to make changes toward living a healthier lifestyle and get side-tracked by life's issues. I've been a member of SP since 2007. I've lost 44 lbs. Not a lot in all that time, but for the first time in my life, I've managed to keep the weight off. I know it's because of SP. I've changed some of my old habits since becoming a member, and I am determined to never give up. I hope you will revisit our team. I'm striving to make it a place of support and encouragement for us.

    I know, for myself, it sometimes takes awhile before things "click". Old habits die hard, as they say, and it's so easy to fall back into them when we are stressed and caring for everyone else. Try to remember, however, you need to be cared for also.

    If I can help in anyway, please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to getting to know you through our team.

    Enjoy that time with your grandsons!

    Make a plan and stick to it. I find it difficult to stick to my plan when I buy special treats for my granddaughter. She is now learning to eat the healthier things that Nana fruits and veggies for snacks instead of crackers or pretzels!

    Make a plan so you do not lose sight of what you are trying to do. Plan your food and your time for exercise. You get those little one in there and you will know you need to keep up with them and you can do it, Enjoy making great new memories in 2014 and I know this time next year we will be seeing a lot less of you (weight wise).

    Best wishes! I wish my son, his wife, and my grandson were moving in with me. We made the offer to get them back here so they could find better jobs but so far they have not taken us up on it. My son is applying for jobs here, so it is still a possibility. Right now they are so far away! I need to take a page from your book and get moving so I am in good shape for my grandson when he gets here.

    Be very careful and set limits... I have lost my and dd over a similar situation...(and I am out thousands of dollars) it's very hard... I hope it works for you.. I have another friend who let her dd and family move in with them and they are being severely taken advantage of right now. Sorry to rain on your parade, but it's different with family. I know my friend, once she buys ALL the groceries and pays ALL the bills, they haven't got a penny till their next cheque comes in and they are babysitting all the time too...and her dh's already had 3 heart attacks, so the stress this is causing could be the death of him.... all I hear is, "IT's crazy at my house".... be careful!
