After many,many countless attempts at weight loss, trying every single solitary fad diet and magic diet pill and program, that there is no "secret" or magic to it. It's all about a lifestyle change, finding what works for you & sticking with it.

I'm a stay at home mom to my 7 year old son. Spark is my way of connecting to the outside world & I'm always looking for new friends! :)

I've been at this batlle for many years now & after many, many hurdles- finally getting a diagnosis for my stomach/digestive conditions - gastroparesis, global motility disorder, ibs-c, colon inertia,...basically nothing in my digestive tract works as it should- I spent the last almost 2 years trying the few risky meds there are for these conditions- got serious side effects & had to discontinue use - after alot of trial and error finally found what works for me. My plan is basically eating mostly whole, real foods. Extremly limiting processed foods- my body reacts severly adversly to wheat, additives, preseratives and yeast. I try to live an active life and make every day count.

" You cannot dream yourself into a character: you must hammer and forge yourself into one. "

Thank you Amy. Right now prayers that she does not get worse. The dr said it was the beginning of pneumonia. However, I know how fast it can get worse. She is on an old medicine since we have all the kids off of penicillin and sulfa. Terrible reactions to both.

She got 4hr stretch of sleep from 3AM - 730AM with a couple of coughing fits. She woke hungry, but did not know she wanted. When I came back for Tom to go to work, I asked if she wanted homemade biscuits. Well, she smiled so big. Sure I could have dragged her up the street to Cracker Barrel, but mine are better, she said...LOL

Now, for her to take her medicine.

I will keep you updated. I am waiting for call back from her peds office to see when they want her in for a recheck.

Hi Amy, things are kinda changing here with my full-time job, middle child living at college and youngest sad and depressed. Hubby seems to be the only one holding it together. Bright and chipper in morning, working, etc. THANK goodness for that!!!

Hope you are doing well....sorry for the flat tire!!

Nothing has changed here. Busy with two schedules for everything. Bailie and Xander have ine schedule, Brittneynhas her new schedule, then there is Tom's crazy hours, and me.

I have just decided I am done fighting it and except what God has given me. I am going tomdo my best to live in the current moment with my family.

I am bloated, pain in my knee and my gi track hurts, I am super tired, and well I miss Tom. The kids are driving me crazy and then there is me. One more verse and I have a country song...LOL

I have 4 months to lose 14lbs and I am never going to do it. I am going into a new decade still overweight and it hurts. I am not doing my best, but I am doing better. More freggies and more exercise. My knee limits me still and I am thinking about getting a second opinion before your insurance changes in January.

enough about me

how are you? How is Andrew doing in 2nd grade, right? Brian doing well, I hope.

Great Tom just put crap on tv, some zombie show, time for me to knit or fall a sleep.

Have a good day tomorrow
Love ya!
