I just got this in an e-mail and thought of you. It's from Meet Me In the Meadow w/Roy Lessin


STRENGTH
God knows you by name
and has your best interest
at heart.
He will be with you
and will carry you
when you can’t find
the strength to
stand on your own.

Just wanted you to know
that during this difficult time
you are cared about, prayed for,
and never, ever alone.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him. ROMANS 15:13 NIV

For the warrior there is a weapon. Take�the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Ephesians 6:17-18 NKJV

I am part of a group called Pain into Gain ( https://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_
individual.asp?gid=36171 ), you might check us out. There are some really great ladies on there. Some have had surgeries such as yourself limiting their workout options.
Good luck to you on your journey to a healthier, stronger you.

Hi and thanks for taking a moment to read about me. I'm Laura and I'm a single mom of 4 (2 still at home) and apparently gaining weight daily! I have struggled somewhat with my weight since my youngest was born 17 years ago (my other youngest is 2 years old and adopted). I quit smoking also over 2 years ago and then the weight really stayed on. I suffer with panic disorder and agoraphobia and some depression, so emotional eating is a biggie for me. Food is my best friend. I love to cook and I cook gourmet and actually cook with good, fresh, healthy ingredients, but tend to eat way too much of it.

I've recently been shopping at Lane Bryant just so I can find something that I can look semi-acceptable in to go out into public when I have to. I generally live in sweats because I can't feel the pinch at my waist like I do with jeans. But I feel like a big, fat slug going out in big t-shirts and sweat pants. I am so incredibly disgusted with myself every time I look in the mirror. You'd think that would be enough determination and motivation to get me moving, but it's not.

I have chronic back problems and have had 2 separate spine surgeries so my options for exercising are limited. I do work out 2 x a week at my physical therapist's office, but it doesn't feel like enough. I also do about 20 minutes of yoga on the days I don't work out. I know I need to do more, but I just can't get my slug self off my butt to do it.

I am half-way through the Spark book and I love the information there and am trying my HARDEST to have it kick-start me in the right directions. I am now working on my fast break goals and introducing myself and looking for some support is one of them. I am incredibly shy and even this is hard for me to do....but I did it.

Thanks again for reading. I look forward to hopefully one day being able to post that I met my goals.
