I used to think that I wanted to be cute and sexy like
Betty Boop. Guess I still do.
On the "down side"........
My Husband, my biggest "cheerleader", died of Cancer a
year ago now.
On the "up side" .........
This little guy is my grand-baby Ethan,
The reason I keep on going...................
He loves me.
#1 To lose 65 pounds in 2011
#2 To become slim and fit and decrease my BMI to a healthy range, and NEVER be obese again!!
I plan to Reward myself along the way, something "new" for me, hmmmm, wonder what that will be!
I would LOVE to go on about my days, and not feel embarrassed, but feel "proud" of myself.
I just hope to start taking better care of myself, finally,
I want to start "Living" one day, and "liking" myself rather than "waiting" till my weight is off..........................
I have an opportunity to create an AWESOME "next chapter" of my life. And I hope to make myself "proud".
Originally from Lemon Grove California, (born in Hemet) but have lived in AZ nearly 21 years.
I am the proud mom of 2 grown children, Aleasha and Tyler. And Grammy of my special litle guy, Ethan, who is now 3 1/2 years old. I have a supportive family, and now i want to make my husband, Dave, who is now in Heaven, really proud.
I have 2 beautiful kitties, Goldie and Peep.
I Jazzercised for 7 years when my kids were little, but all these years later can't seem to get consistent with any form of exercise. I do enjoy walking, but believe it or not, it's either too hot, or too cold for me, so I don't commit for long periods of time. That's my excuse anyway. I would much rather spend time
hanging out with my Grand-baby or going shopping with my best friend!!
I want to finally stop being "the fat one in my house","the fat one in the family", "the fat one wherever I am"............................
My favorite color is purple (as if you couldn't tell).
I love Eeyore, sunflowers, humming birds, the beach and sea shells, chocolate, "my Ethan", my Husband, my family and friends, and senior citizens!!!

WELCOME to the Lost A Loved One group. They are the most caring and loving group of women. My condolences and sorrow reach out to you in the loss of your beloved husband, Dave. Like you, I became a widow on January 28, 2008. When, my beloved husband lost his battle to cancer and complications from a rare form of dementia, a dear friend emailed me a very special poem, that to this day I pass down to others that are suffering losses such as what you have been through. I am hoping the following poem may bring you an inner peace that you and Dave are forever connected by an invisible string from his eternal heart to your earthly heart.
I'm Gone now, but I'm still very near.
Death can never separate us.
Each time you feel a gentle breeze,
It's my hand caressing your face.
Each time the wind blows,
It carries my voice whispering your name.
When the wind blows your hair ever so slightly,
Think of it as me pushing a few stray hairs back in place.
When you feel a few raindrops fall on your face,
It's me placing soft kisses.
At night look up in the sky and see the stars shining so brightly.
I'm one of those stars and I'm winking at you and smiling with delight.
For never forget you're the apple of my eye.

to the Lost a Loved One team. My sympathies on the loss of your husband. You've come to a great team of individuals who have experienced loss and are grieving much as you are youself. I lost my Mom in August of 2010 and have found the journey much more difficult than I ever could have imagined. I hope that in this team, you will find an element of healing for your grief.
I hope you will stop by the team message boards and introduce yourself in the introduce yourself thread. There is also a resources thread that has a lot of good references and information, as well as a chat & support thread where team members just meet to vent and learn to know each other. If you have specific things you would like to have discussed, please feel free to start your own thread; and if you don't feel up to posting, just come to read and find encouragement. Looking forward to learning to know you and best wishes on your journey to a healthier you.
