Welcome to the group Jany.....

We are all here to help you along the way in anything that comes up, all you have to do is give a shout out and we will come a runnin'......

I deal with my boyfriends mother on a daily basis ( she needs care due to age and other things ) and it can be a very stressful situation and eating is pretty tough at times and pretty much for the same reason you stated..... have to make things that she likes, gets rough on me sometimes, but I deal with it.

YOU CAN do this if you had the guts to leave your husband.... that shows alot of strength and determination..... YOU GO GIRL

Wish you the best

Dana

See you on the lighter side

Jany ... I've been here just over two years ( emoticon was 21FEB10). Things are going well for me ... check out my spark page for before and after photos.

It can certainly be hard to change your eating habits when you are cooking for five children in addition to yourself. This is a great opportunity to teach your children about nutrition and healthy eating habits while you explore that area for yourself. Having said that, I know only too well how difficult it is to get kids to eat things they don't like/want to eat. Good luck!

May you always have

emoticon Jany ... emoticon to Spark People and to the Spark North Dakota team. It's nice to meet you!

I'm sorry to hear you were in an abusive marriage. That can really wear you down, physically and mentally. If you had the strength and courage it takes to leave an abusive relationship you definitely have the strength to lose weight. It will make it easier to keep up with your kids and you won't be tried all the time ... and you'll like what you see when you look in the mirror!

If I can help you in any way, please let me know. There are so many resources on this site it's sometimes overwhelming. I'll be happy to help you find your way around the site, figure out how things work and cheer you on as you change your lifestyle.

Hi my name is jany and i live in minot, nd. I am a single mom of 5 kids whom left an abusive marriage. I use to be super active, but have never had good eating habits, i most deffinantly have a sweet tooth! I think the activenes is what kept me in shape, but now after the loss of siblings, marriage, and birth of kids, much of my activity has gone dorment... i desire so greatly to loose weight and get back to an active lifestyle, for my kids and myslef! I am so tired lots because of my weight and unhealthy eating habits... i look forward to learning more and meeting new people as I begin a new journey with the spark team!
