We moved to a different city in April of this year so I can relate to what you are going through. With my daughter I made arrangements so that once a month one of her friends could spend the weekend with us or she could spend the weekend with them. I also joined a church in our new city and Ashley loves the youth group there. I think it's important to give the kinds some independence and to let them know that their feelings are important but at the same time firmly establish guidelines and don;t let them push the rules because you may feel guilty for moving them from their friends....good luck!

My name is Steph. I have a 17 year old boy. He is bright, kind and amazing! We lived in one community for his whole life and a month ago we moved 5 hours away. It is his final year of high school. He left behind his friends, girlfriend, bio-dad and air cadets. He is so sad and I know that there is nothing I can say to make it better for him. I have been trying to make him his fav foods and we talk alot. He isn't into sports (more of a book-computer kid) so he is finding it hard to join in. I know I made the right choice to not let him live with his bio dad (who is very irresponsible) but I feel so sad that I can't do anything to make him happier. Any advice on how I help him adjust?
We did get him a little car, he needs it to drive to school and he is looking for a job. We are letting him take the car back to our hometown to visit his friends this weekend. Still...what else can I do to make this a smoother transition? I know how he feels, I miss my friends too :(

Hi I'm Shani Mother of 5;
2 who are boys and ages 17-15
The 17 yr old is basicly a good kid, close to 18.
The 15 yr old is driving me crazy, he smokes, stays out late, getsin troublewith the law, goes to counceling, and is on probation. His father and I are out of opions, we try to talkto him, but it goes in one ear and out the other. Anybody have any ideas, I think that most of my stress comes from him. emoticon emoticon

Hi! I'm Beth, and I'm almost "out" of this team! My son is 18 and my daughter will be 18 in March, so I only have a few more months! Ha ha! I just joined SparkPeople and I'm hoping it will help me with the motivation I need to get back on track. Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

I'd like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony.

Heyyyy friends,
I am a mother of two boys. My husband and I decided to homschool last year and it was really fun but a lot of hard work learning the tutorial as a first year learning coach. As the yr progressed it became a lot easier and we are now going into our second year.....YAY! My oldest is 14 and my lil one is almost 12. They play basketball all yr round which really started me on my journey to becoming a better healthier me. emoticon

Have a wonderful week SP fam.

Hi! I'm a mother of four and my oldest is 14. WOW parenting teenagers is a whole new ballgame! I'm a little overbearing because I was a terrible teen and don't want him to go through what I did.As far as weight loss... I'm ready! I lost all my baby weight and more after the first. Then I seemed to get bigger and bigger with each child. I've been between 190-220 for the last 7 years and I'm over it!

Hi my name is Jenny and I just joined your team. I have 2 boys ages 16 and 11 and I am looking forward to dedicating our lives to a healthy future. I am considering getting my whole family on the meal plan and not letting them know it is a diet. LOL Got to trick them into it somehow so that they won't hear the word diet and say no way. Any suggestions?

This is my first post ever as well. I have two girls 15 & 12. Hubby works for BMW and I'm looking for a job. I also have Crohns which makes it difficult to lose weight. My goal is to get healthy and lose 25 lbs. It's nice to have a support. I find when my girls stress me out I eat.

I am 42 years old and have a 13 year old boy and girls who are 11 and 4. I have had a weight problem pretty much since my teen years. I became a lifetime member of Weight Watchers several years ago and worked for them as a receptionist for several years - I quit when I was pregnant for my 4 year old because it was just too hard. I have not been at my goal for a long, long time, and I keep trying to get back on track with Weight Watchers and help from Spark!

Hi, my friends call me Dee. I'm the mother of the most handsome, brightest, funniest 12-year-old boy on the planet (I can hear him now, "oh mom, not in public."

I've had a distorted body image my whole life for various reasons. My parents cooked what was there, and I ate it. I didn't have a real weight problem until a really bad breakup in my 20s, and I medicated myself with food. Seems that once you go that route, it's hard to reverse it. So I'm here, trying again, to get it done. Reading posts from people on the journey sure helps me feel motivated. Hope I can say or do something that will help you, because just reading your introductions has already helped me.

Hi everyone. I'm new to Spark and just discovered the teams the other day. I have two boys 12 and 9. They both have birthdays coming up though. My oldest is in great shape. Though my youngest is starting to get pudgy around his middle. He doesn't want to play sports or exercise. However I recently sat down with him and explained that I'd like him to work out with me so I don't have to do it alone. So now we can both get healthy. I look forward to taking the journey to a healthy life with all of ya'll.

Hey everyone. First time posting on any forum. I am 36 y/o with 4 children ages 17, 13, 4, and 3. Married but hubby travels 4 days out of week. All kids are in good health and active... not us. I was doing great until my 3y/o son came along. Hit a wall with 25lbs to go. The 17 year old girl is what drove me to this page. LOL Pray for me..we are on the homestretch!

Hi, my name is Cheryl. I'm a single mom of two girls (22 and 13). I joined the team last year when my youngest turned 12. My girls have always eaten healthier than I do. Seems I've spent my life putting their nutrition first and mine last. So, last year I started making changes for me and have been pleasantly surprised with my energy level. Not only that, but I've learned to choose fruit instead of chocolate. Now, I'd like to see that scale moving downward!

The key to true happiness is to make sure that regardless of where you end up, you enjoy the spot where you are.

Hi! My name is Dawn. I have a 12 year old boy who is a healthy weight and active but I worry about his nutrition. I have been using SparkPeople for about 2 months now and have been successful losing weight and have a lot more energy. I am trying to set a good example for him and change some of the bad habits I have let him pick up. I think this team will help give me some ideas.

HI Sharla here. I'm new but I think that you may have already figured that out. I have one daughter (15) and one step-daughter (15) who live with my husband and me, and another step-daughter (13) who lives with her mom.
My two older girls are 6 foot and both weigh in at about 300 lbs. each. Like me, they have no idea how to take care of themselves. When I was 15, I was in shape. I played basketball. I had a horrible image of what my body looked like at that age. I didn't realize how attractive my teenage body was until I was well into my 30s. So my girls inherited this skewed way of looking at themselves.
I have made a decision to take these matters into my own hands. I have decided to eat better and work out. They are not on board. They are vehemently opposed to eating better and getting exercise. They think I am insane. They roll their eyes ALOT! I know I cannot make them change. They are going to change how they eat simply because I have changed how I buy. This is my small sneaky victory. I am hoping that they will see changes in me from working out and want those changes for themselves. Am I deluding myself? Help me because I am afraid they will eat me because I didn't buy frozen pizzas this week and I'm not buying them next week or ever.

Hi, I am a mom of 3 boys (28,12,& 8). I have always struggled with my weight. Now my 12 yr old has hit the awkward age and is gaining weight like me. He has no desire to exercise and he gets that from me. I have to change my ways so he will see that he needs to also. Together we need to get healthy. I look forward to all the advice and motivation from this SparkTeam page. emoticon

Hi! I am the mother of four teens. A boy 19, and three girls 17, 15, and 14. My son and one daughter have a super fast metabloism to the point that they have been teased for being skinny even though they eat everything in sight. My youngest has a normal metabolism and my oldest girl gains weight easily, but is happy because she can bench press 110 and is really strong. I have taught them it's not about how much you weigh but being healthy and how they feel.

My weight has been a yo yo for years so I need to get where I am fit and maintain it.

Hi all, I'm Sandy and new member here, just joined tonight. I'm a mom to 3 active kids, a girl 10, and 2 boys 12 & 15. The kids keep active in soccer, scouts, band & softball. Many nights not getting home until after 9pm which makes it hard to eat right and exercise. Hoping to find some help for that along with some support.

My name is Valerie and I am the mother of 3 "very special" if not slightly spoiled kids.

I have a son that is 17, a daughter that is 11 (going on 21) and my youngest that is 8.

It is usually chaos in my home, but I am working really hard to bring balance to our lives : )

My two boys have VERY fast metabolisms and it has been tough for my daughter who gains weight just looking at food.

We are all learning the importance of wellness and the difference between dieting and making lifestyle changes.

Hope to hear from you all. It helps hearing what works/doesn't work from other parents.

Hi! My name is Monique. I am a 36 year mother of 2 boys, ages 2 an 7. We just became legal guardians of our 15 year neice. I work full-time from home. I have always been a like one that takes all the weight off, maintains it for a year or so and something stressful happens and I am back to square one. We were uprooted, to Texas from CA via my husbands job just over a year ago. Between that and getting used to having a teen in the house things have gotten out of control. So, I here to get back on track permanently.

Hi - I am Kathy - 47 y/o mom of two teens - daughter 19 and son 14. Recently divorced - although I have been a single mom for years. I am hoping to get back on track and take off the weight I gained over the last six months and resume my weight loss to my goal. I am hoping that by supporting and encouraging others, I will be able to keep myself on track. Good luck to all!

Hi. My name is Amy and I am looking for an active team who I can join to see my way through. I am 42, married to a workaholic stick figure and we have four children, ages 24, 21, 15 and 11. After all of these years, I am trying very hard to pay attention to myself and even occasionally put my needs first. It has not been easy. I am hoping this team is a good fit for me.

Isn't it funny how our children spur us on to be something greater? My daughter is chubby but she comes across as very self-confident. Hopefully together she and I will get to the point where both of us have outsides that match the insides!

Hi, I am James, 36 yrs old. I have son who is 13yrs old. It was hard in the beginning being a single parent with a new pre-teen. Eating habits are totally different. I am not as young and healthy as I use to be. But, once I realize how self-conscious my son is about his body, I knew I had to get in gear and be an example to him in a healthier way. So, here I am for me and for him...

I am a 36 year old mother of 2 and one of them is 14 going on 21 and the other is 10. She thinks she knows everything. She loves playing softball and we are just finishing up the season. She's hoping to play on the high school team next year. I'm here to lose weight because I'm tired of not having any energy and need to get myself and in turn my hubby healthier.

Hello - I am Penny. I am a 47 year old mother of one daughter 13. She is a bright child with almost all A's each report period. She is very much into cheerleading and will be a freshman cheerleader this year. She is not always easy to handle as I think I may have raised her to be a bit too independent. I am new to SP - only a few days and looking to find friends to keep me motivated. I am in FL and it is so HOT I can hardly find energy to do much. I have been tracking all my food since I started.
