Welcome Stacie! Congrats on your choice. I only have one to chase at home, but he certainly keeps me busy. I definitely understand hiding, but sparkpeople is a great way to start coming back out of that shell. I respect what you and others that work in social services do so much. Having been in an RTC for just over a year, I couldn't imagine having the strength to do it day after day. I admit. It drained me. The strength you bring to this will carry you where ever you want to go. I know it!!!!!!!!!!

I just wanted to jump in and say Kudos to You! I am 35 and a single mom of 2 boys, ages 6 & 12 who also works in social services. It's really tough to find the time but baby steps! We all know that we have more to give when we take care of ourselves first but it's so hard to actually do! Congrats on taking those first steps!

That is great that you are doing what you can for yourself and your boys now. I wish I would have come to that conclusion 10 years ago myself when I was closer to your age! Welcome to SparkPeople.

Let's do this!

My name is Stacie Miller and I'm a 31 year old single mother of 2 boys ages 12 and 4. I live in Miles City, Montana and work at AWARE, Inc as a Youth Case Manager. I found this site through a friend and feel like I need to make a change. I was an athlete in high school and even played college basketball for one year. I was always in shape and always active, but after I got pregnant at 18 with my first son, I lost all interest in being in shape. My life revolves around my children and I've continued that routine up to 300 pounds. I'm only 5'4". I also got divorced on March 30, 2009 and decided part of what I'm am doing is hiding from people.

Well, no more!

I've decided it's time to quit hiding and time to get back in shape for me and for my kids. I need to find myself under all of this fat. My journey begins here.
