Here is what it is all about for me. This is why I would walk in the parade. I do many things for my kids. I do many things for myself. I guess some how deep down even w... Read more

I love Spark People. I like all the people I have met here. I am not sure if I am keeping my eye on the prize of being thin, healthy and in shape or if I am concentrating on how fat I am. I am trying to figure out how to get my eye on t... Read more

One woman who had been through years of trial and sorrow said through her tears, “I have come to realize that I am like an old 20-dollar bill—crumpled, torn, dirty, abused, and scarred. But I am still a 20-dollar bill. I am worth something. Even... Read more

I walked in the Mint festival parade and participated with my little guy in a frog jumping contest. What a day. My son was going to ride on a scooter while I walked in the parade but, he got an opportunity to ride in a "cow train". I'll p... Read more

I have been struggling with how I look at things. I decided to give up sugar and so my brain started chanting about all the foods that I "could not" have. I was going to list the chants but, I don't want to start chants in other people's head... Read more

I decided at the beginning of the week that I needed to accomplish something. I have a 12 week challenge with my friend. I gained 15 pounds when I stopped taking Byetta for my diabetes. I was kind of mad and kind of depressed. They seem to g... Read more

This is not about food really. Well at least right now I don't think it will be. Let's just say that I discovered that when my house is picked up I have an easier time eating healthier food. This is for several reasons. One is that it is eas... Read more

I got up very early to take 2 of my kids to a swim meet. I did not have to time for this one so I am very pleased. I took water, nothing colored, and some knitting. It was kind of cool but the pool was heated so the kids were fine. It was a ... Read more

I am still working on weight. But, this week I have also been working to get my home in order. I think it will make many things easier if I can get the organizing done. I seem to have cycles where I move from very organized to somewhat... Read more

I am sorting all the papers that just got shoved into my room. Most of this is going into the recycle. I don't know why this was so hard to deal with in the first place. But, it is taking way longer than I thought it would. I keep aski... Read more

I am really struggling to change my eating, avoid insulin and learn to eat well as a diabetic. Changes in my medication seem to be making losing weight harder than it was before. I am getting pretty tired of myself and my learning curve. Uggg... Read more

I am the only one awake in my home right now. My hubby has already left for work and my ids are asleep for a few more minutes. Then it will get busy. I read someone else's blog that they had lost weight and found themselves. I wonder who I w... Read more
Have I made something of myself?

The speaker in church today talked about what his goals were for his children. Pray often and follow the direction of the Lord was one. Make something of yourself was another. My mind went back to the dreams of what I was going to do. I wa... Read more
