2012....Changes are a-comin'!

Well, another year has come and gone.

About me: I'm a stay at home mom of two girls, and I substitute teach at their schools. I'm 40. I've been over-weight since before I got married in my mid-20's. I lost down to 145, but I've gained back up to 170 plus (depends on the day). BUT... This is the year of NO EXCUSES. I've got to get back to exercising and get this weight off!

Well, another year has come and gone.

About me: I'm a stay at home mom of two girls, and I substitute teach at their schools. I'm 40. I've been over-weight since before I got married in my mid-20's. I lost down to 145, but I've gained back up to 170 plus (depends on the day). BUT... This is the year of NO EXCUSES. I've got to get back to exercising and get this weight off!

Until recently, I cared for my grandmother in my home. She has Alzheimer's and has heart troubles. She kept falling, and I was afraid that she would get hurt worse than a few bruises. I chose a nursing home that was close to the school so I could check on her every day. However, after she had to go to a special facility to get her meds under control, my uncle moved her without my knowledge to a home an hour away. Now, I cannot afford to go see her like I want to. More importantly, my little one (who was only 2 when Gran moved in with us) is missing her terribly and cries knowing that she cannot see her every day. Please pray for us as we deal with this loss.

On a better note: I'm an Independent Consultant for a national beauty product company. I am looking forward to having more time to spend on the business. I'd love to share the products and ideas with you. So PM me if you'd like to know more.

Thank you for the goodie! My husband's surgery was a success. He is doing much better.

Thanks for the skates!!! Goodness they brought back memories for me. :) That is definitely given me a boost of fun in my week.

Can't wait till the little one wants to take skating on!

Still struggling a bit this week and trying to find my niche but I'm not giving up so that is a good thing. :) Thanks again!

I'm sorry to hear about your Gran. That is hard to do, I know. We took care of Danny's Mom and Dad for about 6 yrs. It got really tough. Then in the middle of all of that we lost Amy. So I know you need prayers and I will be doing that for you.
Love,
