Thanks for all the advise. Pitter6~ I realized that my oldest started in on my bad habits. So I'm changing now. That way, it's hard for him for a little bit. And probably hardest on me for a long while. But it will be worth it in the end.

Hi to you! I know its hard to take care of yourself with little ones around... believe me! My name is Becky and I'm almost 70... Yes... Seven... Zero! Eeek!

Now that I'm retired I take care of two of my granddaughters 5 days a week ages 4 & 2. Some days I think I need my head examined, but it is the best job I've had my whole life!

Every mother looks back on her life and feels the same way, I'm sure. Then when you become grandmothers you may end up doing the same thing as I am and thinking you need your head examined too! Because you still can't find time for yourself!

Good advise Pitter6. Welcome to the team, we're happy to have you.

I will run the race of losing weight that I may lay hold of the prize and make it mine.

The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up. John Maxwell

emoticon You need to take the time to take care of yourself. How can you care for others if you are not on top of your game. If the boys see you taking care of yourself, it will inspire them to care for themselves also. Habits learned will last a lifetime.

Lord, bless my diet buddies and help me met my weight goals

I'm new here. I'm Emily, a 30 something mom with 2 boys. They are 9 and 1. And so busy. I have used the excuse that I'm too busy taking care of everyone else and everything else to take care of myself. And I'm not going to do that anymore. I love to quilt. It's not a very get up and moving hobby. lol.
