Your welcome, Christina. You don't want to be feeling discouarged, be positive and focused. I know how you feel, b/c I was feeling the same when I 1st joined Spark. The more you post, read article and get to know more people; you will feel right in. Make a plan and stick to it and and you will see what I'm saying.. Write down what you would like to say to a new member on paper, and it try out. I was scared too, but when I became a team leader and I stayed focused and positive. I have a group of women that depend on me and we all made a team.I followed 2 wonderful women that was on different teams and they both said that I would make terrific leader. We have lost both of them and they are like angels from heaven watching what I do and say. They were too young to leave this world. I had looked up to them as mentors for me. They are the reason I became a leader to help others.

Live 1 day at a time and live it to the fullest. Wish you all the best that life has to offer.... Stay focused, positive and it will get you where you want to be or done in life itself.
My name is ERNA



I'm leader of a new team : "A Safe and Happy Home For Grievers"

Thanks Erna for your reply. Just weighed today and am up 1 3/4 lbs and feeling discouraged, but I know it's not the end of the world.

Hello Christina
Welcome to Single Parents team. I'm also a single parent with 3 grown sons ages 40, 34, and 21. I know what you are going through and sometimes it's good to talk to another single parent. I'm here most of the time.If you want it to be one on one, send me a spark email... If you want another parent to listen, I'm sure anyone would be willing to listen, help you, and read what you have to say (including me) My name is ERNA

I'm Christina ~ a 39 yr. old single mom of the most adorable little boy ever. He's 2 1/2 and exhausting. I was so HAPPY to read all of these posts from single parents, as I feel like a pariah in my area and circle of friends. All are wonderful and supportive, but unless you dont have an extra pair of hands around, you don't really know what it's like. I've basically been a single parent since he was born with very little help from his father, although he'd probably argue that point. I've struggled with weight on and off throughout life, but really packed on weight after my son was born, as his father and I were also ending our relationship at the same time. I got sick last summer and that was the final straw, went up to where I am now and I FEEL SO UNCOMFORTABLE!!
More importantly, my son is my world and I'm his and I have to be here and healthy for us both to enjoy it.
Looking forward to using this site for support and to keep me on track.
