SparkPoints: 42,425

Fitness Minutes: 36,420

My Goals:
Lose 10 more pounds by week of April 7th, 2013

Done!

6-1-13 Maintain my 20 pound loss for now. Lose 10 more in the future.

My Program:
Stay within my calorie range!

Personal Information:
I am the person I most wanted not to be. As a child if you asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I said a mommy. As soon as I became one I knew that to lose a child would be the worst possible thing that could ever happen to a mother. I prayed it would never happen to me. But it did. I am a Gold Star Mother. Our youngest son was killed in the war.

There are times when I feel that I am the saddest person in the world. Yet my friends still love me. I know too many other bereaved parents. I try to be there for those who have just started the journey, though I know I canít take the pain away. There are too many of us. For those who donít know how we feel, we hope they never find out.



Other Information:
My best chance of dealing with this is to keep busy. Since my elderly mother lives with us now that doesn't seem to be a problem.

Life verse: Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. II Timothy 2:15 KJV

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ĎWhat! You too? I thought I was the only one. ― C.S. Lewis

An Irish Prayer

May God give you ...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing to each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.
