I am a Mum of 4 beautiful healthy children and wife to an amazingly supportive hubby - except that he always spoils me with all the wrong things. (but we are working on that! lol)
In 2008 I had 4 weeks of sitting on the sofa trying to prevent a miscarriage ( baby Rueben was still born 14 October 2008), and so 4 weeks of time to think about life, where I am at and what I want.
I want to be thinner, healthier and happier with myself.
I want my family to mimick these good habits and learn from my journey that although things are hard, nothing is impossible. I want them to learn determination, perserverence and love for themselves.
I have learnt that I have to treat myself with the same love and respect that I have for others, and that its not being selfish if I do.
I learned that I spend too much time doing things for too many people, and that if I don't do something for myself now then in a few years time I won't be around to do anything for anybody.

For the last 2 years since March 2009 though I have had several traumatic, worrisome problems - including 3 more miscarriages. and totally lost focus and motivation. I have tried now and then to get back on track ( minus SP) but it hasn't worked. I obviously need the community support here, and need to make the time to log on.

I am just so tired, worried, stressed, unhappy, disappointed....on one hand I love my life. On the other hand i did imagine things going differently. My weight holds me back so much, but as much as i want to be rid of it, i almost think there is a part of me that sees the weight as a safety net/ cuddly/ protection. But that doesn't make sense, does it?

Too tired to think more tonight....just feeling low!

    I agree it's sad to see our teams waning.
    I think it's partly because spring and autumn are such busy seasons. People are stretched to their limit.
    I love the burst of excitement people get after the holidays and in January! Their bubble carries them and their friends forward.
    Unfortunately, weight loss is a journey of a thousand miles, and while we all wish is could be done by plane, step by step is the only way to get there!
    I hope you find the motivation you need and continue toward your goals! emoticon

    I just stopped by the team for Every-other-day diet, and I'm sorry to see most of the members have left it.
    In fact, you are the only one who has visited the page in the last 30 days.
    I am a co-leader of the Fast Diet team. We have a small but active group. Most do 2 fast days per week, but some more. Come join us, if you would like support for this way of eating!
    Best wishes on your journey to fitness!

    Thanks for visiting my SparkPage and giving me the encouragement you did. Why is it so hard to remember to "start small"? I am going to aim for that attitude and effort. I KNOW it will bring success.

    I am on the same stomach medicine that you are on, my lung doc put me on it to see if my cough which I've had since last Nov. was caused from acid reflex, which it wasn't and I was diagnosed with asthma at the end of Aug. I am still on that medicine and when I don't take it my acid reflex acts up. Hope you get to feeling better, it's not fun trying to get ourselves healthier when we don't feel good, it really makes it hard to exercise and do the things we need to be doing. I hope Nov. is a great month for you.
