I am a Mom of 4 - #1 is my 13 year old daughter, #2 is my 11 year old son, Kaity is #3, our angel who would have been 9 this year, and #4 is our rough and tumble rainbow at 4 years old. I talk to my kids about living healthy all the time, and I think it's about time that I start walking the talk. I gained weight with having the kids, but after losing our daughter I gained 25 pounds in a year (on top of the baby weight, which pushed me to about 40 pounds overweight) - after having our 4th child I lost 38 pounds, but after a year of losing I started regaining and ended up back at my heaviest weight within 2 years :( It's time to start again, and this time, stick with the lifestyle change!

    hello there. I know your pain of lossing a daughter. My daughter was a month old when she passed away. SIDS. So absolutly no clue pretty much why she just went to sleep and didn't wake up. She will be 8 this year. I have a hard time before her birthday. The anticipation of her being 1 year older and it being that long since I got to see her or touch her. I know I will see her again thank god and that is what gets me through the days sometimes. I am very positive about her life and know that she was a gift and a blessing from god. Please let me know if you ever want to chat. Sometime talking to someone who has been down that path helps. (: have a amazing Thursday! (:

    Hello and emoticon to SparkPeople!! This has been one of the best places I've ever been for weight loss, goal setting and support. The people on the site are absolutely FANTASTIC! You won't find anywhere else as positive and supportive.

    My advice to you -

    1. Use the nutrition tracker! It is an invaluable tool to you!
    2. Use your blog to share your day, vent frustrations, ask for advice or just post "fun stuff"! It's a great way to interact with other Sparkers!
    3. Get involved with message boards and teams! My favorite SparkTeam is (((( Sending SKINNY Vibes! )))) http://teams.sparkpeople.com/skinnyvibes
    4. Don't be too hard on yourself! If you slip up or have a bad day, remember that it's not about being perfect, it's about learning to live a new LIFE!

    Remember, at SparkPeople, you're never alone! Feel free to visit my SparkPage, add me as a friend or join any of my teams!

    So sorry to hear that you've had such a rough go of it. You do have the most beautiful family, though, and I'm sure they will stand behind you and support you as you "walk the talk!" I have found that my family loves taking walks with me, trying new healthy recipes and watching Mommy be happy to be breathing a little easier now. You can do this, and your family will be better for it too!
