Hey, Leah Rivka! Thanks for friending me! Did you know about the Spark Jews and Mishpacha haTivkah teams? Also there's a kosher cooking one but it tends to be quiet.
Wishing you Hatzlacha Raba on your journey!

Oh don't worry Leah. I was lost as a kitten for over a month or two after I joined SparkPeople.
The website is overwhelming at first (or it was for me). :-)
Then, little by little, day by day - - - with lots of help from my new SparkFriends and Class Team Leader, things got more familiar.
One day, (months later) I even dared to write & post a Blog.
I had never written a Blog b-4 that and didn't even know what a "blog" was. Ha Ha Ha
Also, I'm sure being a Mommy and taking care of your Father takes up a lot of your time. So, we'll be here to cheer you on and help out whenever you need it.
At least read the Blue Star Mom Team postings, as often as you can, even if you don't post your own at first. That will keep you current on what's going on - - who's son, daughter or spouse is coming home from the war zone, who is being deployed, trained, etc.
And if your loved one is already deployed - - remember the Holiday MAILING deadlines are here! You may also want to double check with the U.S. Post Office at their website:
From experience, the best way to send packages overseas is:
Get the special FLAT RATE MILITARY shipping boxes (for free) at
your Post Office - - or you can order them online at the website link given above.
MAIL via PRIORITY MAIL!!!
Even though that will only make the package go faster from where you live to the APO or other post of exit - - - those Priority packages still do get a higher & better type of handling when they get overseas and have a better chance of getting to your loved one faster and in one piece! (depending, of course, on whether or not the destination is to a built up base or out in the boonies some where.
These are some of the helpful bits of information you will get on the Blue Star Moms Team discussion threads.
Looking forward to seeing you on the posts when you're feeling more comfortable with the SP website. Until then, please know that I will be praying for your loved one who is in the military, whether they are stateside or overseas - - - they need our prayers, always!

Thank you all for such a warm welcome. Please forgive me for not doing individual messages, but I'm still learning my way around.
Nice to see other military moms here, too!

May your first year in SparkPeople be filled with as many happy times and SparkFriends as mine was. It's so important for us Military Moms to watch our eating habits because when we worry non-stop about our loved ones serving abroad - - many of us fall into the nervous eating traps. Spark People is helpful with that sort of habit system. It looks from your picture as if you're already doing pretty well watching your weight. Great!
I love the puppy dog too! So cute.
