One small step at a time!

Hi everyone! My name is Stacey. I discovered Spark in Jan 2013. At this point I am more ready, willing, and able to get healthy than ever before! I am a 38 yr old wife & mother of 3 busy boys (ages 9, 7 & 4). I am also a cardiac nurse. I was always "skinny" but that changed after marriage & three 40 lb pregnancies. I have tried to lose weight many times in the past decade but never "stuck" with it. I have definitely put the needs of my family before mine but am ready to put myself first this ...

That will be a challenge which is why I love how Spark helps you make small lifestyle changes by focusing on short term goals. I am truly optimistic & the hope I feel brings tears to my eyes. I am tired of being unhappy with my body! Thank you!

Looks like you are online this morning. Nice to see you. Thanks for reading that long blog. I heard this morning that my friend will have to have a pace maker put in. They have to wait for a while since he has had all the blood thinners and stuff for the stroke, but said that he is much improved since Sat. I'm so glad, I was so worried that the fuss would be the last way we all saw him and that would be dreadful to me. I don't like conflict anyway and for a conflict to end badly, well you know. He is going to be staying with his daughter over near Denver until they can get the pace maker in. I couldn't believe they didn't have healthy or really anything much at the dinner the other day. I will have to take something next year. Usually I don't take any food as I have so much other stuff, but I can't do that again, I was starving by the end of the day and that just makes you more nervous and eat too much in the end.
When do you leave? Where are you going this time? I sure hope you all have a nice vacation. My boys have to go back to school next Wed. That is good and bad, you know how that is.
Have a great day Stacey!!
