Well, Mom is finally at peace; and after 3 years of caring for her, I need to figure out who I am again. It is strange being home and being able to call my time my own. Time to spend some quality time on ME!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you are trudging seems all uphill;
When the funds are low, and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh;
When care is pressing you down a bit -
Rest if you must, but don't quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns;
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won, had he struck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow;
You may well succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the Victor's cup!
And he learned too late, when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are
If may be near, when it seems afar.
So stick to the fight when you are hardest hit,
It is when things seem worst you must not quit.

My Program:
Fitness: 10 minutes daily, Monday through Friday; then increase as tolerated.

Emotional: Work on identifying emotional triggers and finding other ways of dealing with them besides food!

Mental: Be positive!

Home Environment: Declutter and minimize !

I am 57 years old and married to my best friend! We have 3 wonderful sons whom we love dearly and 4 cats! I enjoy SINGING, reading, SINGING, cooking/baking, SINGING/music, going out with friends, SINGING and doing family history (genealogy) work for myself and others. If you hadn't guessed SINGING is a big part of my life!

Other Information:
I am the director of a Family History Center and enjoy working with others, whether in a one-on-one setting, classroom, or presentation! I love spreading my enthusiasm for family to others!

“That proves you are unusual,' returned the Scarecrow; 'and I am convinced that the only people worthy of consideration in this world are the unusual ones. For the common folks are like the leaves of a tree, and live and die unnoticed.” ~L. Frank Baum

Your journey has molded you for your greater good,
and it was exactly what it needed to be.
Don't think that you've lost time.
It took each and every situation you have encountered
to bring you to the present.
And the present is now---the right time

Keep that motivational mojo on high and eat healthy, my friend!

I cheat, being lazy, I just pour milk on the oatmeal (and added raisins), vaguely stir it and then nuke it for 2+ minutes, stirring inbetween, adding more milk if needed, etc. The raisins may or may not be soft, but I have teeth emoticon

Beverly,

Yes it is very overwhelming when you start.. I only signed up last week so that I would be able to track my foods and weight. I was thinking that okay this would be a good tool for me to use.. but did not realize that this site is very useful and beneficial to the user. I have not joined a fun team as of yet.. I had a very busy weekend and will meet my personal trainer today.. so I am a bit excited and scared at the same time.

How are things with you and how long have you been a member. Where do you reside. I live in NYC.

Take care,
nenaque2hace
