Hello, Everyone! I live in NW Indiana. I joined SP during the summer of 2006, and I have really enjoyed using this site. It is really nice to have somewhere with all of the resources that they have here, and it is a constant motivation. I just love being able to talk with all of the other people, and to be there for them when they have their ups and downs just like they are for me. I had been "trying" to lose weight for a long time. I say "trying" because it was really just thinking about it and not doing anything. After joining this site, I had really put forth an effort. I lost quite a bit of weight and was doing great. Then for some reason, I just quit trying so hard. I guess when you think you're doing good, you get the idea that you don't need to watch it anymore, but you do. I know that it has to be a lifestyle change and not just a temporary program. After not trying for a while I became pregnant, and then I quit trying altogether. Now, 2 children and several years and pounds later, I am finally back and ready to go at this again. Even though I've been a mother for 13 years now, I still struggle with finding a balance between taking care of myself, my home and my family. I tend to focus on everyone and everything else instead of myself. I have come to the realization that I need to put me first, but that's easier said than done. *When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. *When it hurts to look at the past, and you're too scared to look into the future, look beside you and your friends will be right there.
