My name is Karen. I am a mother to four wonderful sons, all grown and married, so I also have four daughters now. They have given me nine grandchildren with number ten coming in January! I was divorced Aug. 2015. After a 32 year marriage. Now I am single and with the kids grown, I am mapping out the next chapters in my life. I have decided I can afford to be selfish and spend some time on myself this chapter. I have started a ton of times on Sparkpeople, although I kept coming back. Failing to stick with anything during any of my diet attempts. Looking for friends to help me motivate my way to a healthy lifestyle instead of a new diet fail. I've never been skinny. I don't know what to imagine. Being healthy and able to have some energy for my grandchildren would be nice. To be happy with myself would be amazing too!

My Goals:
I know for me, small goals are going to be key! I need to drink 8 glasses of water a day. I will start with 10- pound losses! I will need to add excercise. Even walking is going to be tough with my foot pain, but not impossible. I will get a pedometer and work on counting steps. I want to do the 5 fruits and veggies a day, to begin eating healthy. Logging in to Sparkpeople everyday and tracking my meals and snacks, to be honest to myself, and keep myself motivated. All these small steps will help get me there.

    Hi Karen, thanks for reading my Spark Blog and offering your comments, it's always nice to know someone is reading. I notice from your Sparkpage that you like the challenges, have you heard about the Spring 5% Challenge. People are grouped onto teams for 8 weeks and expected to exercise daily and participate in another weekly task like drinking water, tracking food and more. If this sounds appealing check out my Sparkpage and find the team from my list of teams.

    emoticon emoticon Rules of Chocolate Easter Eggs and Easter Bunnies emoticon emoticon

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    If you get melted chocolate eggs and bunnies all over your hands,
    you're eating it too slowly.
    Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries
    all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.
    That goes for Chocolate Easer eggs, and Easter Bunnies.

    Diet tip: Eat an Easter egg before each meal.
    It'll take the edge off your appetite, and that way you'll eat less.

    If you can't eat all your chocolate you get in your Easter Basket,
    it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate eggs & bunnies,
    what's wrong with you?

    If calories are an issue, store your chocolate eggs on top of the fridge.
    Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate eggs
    to protect themselves.

    Money talks. Chocolate bunnies and eggs sing.
    Chocolate bunnies & chocolate eggs have many preservatives.
    Preservatives make you look younger.
