3rd time is a charm they say right? Well I sure hope so. The older I get the less energy I find myself having. This is my "official" third time of really interacting with Spark and this time I am determined to complete my goal.

The last 2 years of my life have been very difficult. One of my best friends batteled breast cancer (cancer sux). My husband's union has been very slow due to the downward spiral of our economy. He was in a bad accident this spring and has not yet returned to work. ( another sux!) So, my life has been an uphill battle that I am struggeling to overcome.

As many of you mom's can imagine my needs have taken the back burner to my children and others who depend on me. Again, I have let myself down. I have tipped the scale higher than ever after soothing my emotions with FOOD.

I know what works and what does not and as long as I pray and am consistent I know that God and I can acheive great things! (along with help from Sparkpeople :))

    Hi - yes I've been to a few of them - they are thursdays from 4-6. I find them quite interesting, although working in nutrition, alot of it is a refresher for me. Krystyl_Rose is really enjoying them also. Plus I found out that my cholesterol is 140 yay!

    Hello! I am glad your little guy finally got his glasses. Try to find something he likes to do, drawing, looking at books. Anything he can focus on, the longer he does that, he will realize he can see what he's looking at better, and he will want to wear them. It took my son a while to get used to them. He LOVES Spongebob, so I would put him a little too close to the TV, and he was blurry, then I would put on his glasses and say, Now doesn't Spongebob look better? After that, and some book reading he realized he did like to wear his glasses. Be persistent, do not give up, I promise it does get better!!! Keep me posted,if I think of anything else I will let you know!!
    Good Luck!
