Hi everyone! My name is Sylvia. I am married with three children ages 6,4,and 2. My 6 year old was diagnosed with autism so I decided to become a stay at home mom instead of teaching 25 kindergarteners and coming home with a migraine because I wanted to be super woman to my students as well as my family. Also I'm going to school to obtain my Masters degree in Nutrition (yeah a long way from teaching...I know). ANY HOO:)I am loving my life as a stay at home mom but it comes with its own set of stressful situations. But God is good... so I'm here to get and give support to other mothers like myself.

Hello, stressed out is putting it mildly. My stress has been so high continually since July 2005. It has been one thing after another. I don't have the time to go into all the things that have happened but to summarize:
My husband has lost 3 members of his family
I lost 2 family members (both within the last year)
I went back to school for the second time which took 3 years to complete my bachelors degree
Both my husband and I have been diagnosed with diabetes - he now has to give himself shots
I have been diagnosed with sleep apnea (about the same time as being diagnosed with diabetes)
2 of my kids have graduated from high school
One graduate was drinking and driving and moved out a month before her graduation and to this day won't speak to us and doesn't acknowledge us
My oldest son has also decided he doesn't want anything to do with us and has accused me of being the worst mother in the world and I don't get to see his 2 kids.
My second son went to Iraq (leaving the day before I started back to school)
My husband and I got married (the day after my daughters graduation & while my son was in Iraq)
We have both lost our jobs, his coming a month after we got married (he finally found a full time job in December-2 years later, I am still looking for one 1.5 years after getting me degree)
We have attended 14 weddings between family and good friends and my supervisor at work - 4 of our boys getting married withing a 14 month time period.
A week after we got married we ended up with my dad staying with us for a week as he couldn't stay at his apartment alone any longer (he kept falling & was disoriented) and needed someone to be with him 24/7 then went to stay with my sister for a week and she kept calling me as she and dad were clashing so I would have to go help her.
My kids have been fighting with each other and spending time not speaking and my oldest son came here and ended up slugging my youngest son in the ear to which the police were called and he came real close to going to jail for assault (he was in school to be a history teacher)
We have gained 4 of out 5 grandchildren
Our house burned, we lived in a motel for a month while looking for a new place to live, I missed 2 weeks of college classes & had to deal with the insurance company (I was given 6 months to replace everything we lost & didn’t get the upfront money for 5 months of the 6)
I ended up dropping one class and had to take a summer class to be able to get my financial aid for the fall term
My mom had double knee replacement surgery
My husband had a partial knee replacement then broke his knee 335 month later so ended up having a total knee replacement
My brother-in-law had a heart attack & we got news of the loss of a member of my son’s unit from an IED – another member was seriously injured & at the time not knowing if it was my son – BOTH ON THE SAME DAY WITHIN 30 MINUTES OF EACH OTHER
We lost a cat that we had for 11.5 years and that had grown up with my youngest daughter
AND my husband and daughter are so much alike they have trouble getting along with each other and I am in the middle

NO WONDER I GAINED SO MUCH WEIGHT AND AM NOW STRUGGLING TO GET IT OFF.
I am hoping to get to know all you and have a wonderful time during this long journey to healthy living.
Thiry

OK I forgot to add that when my husband and I got married and combined families we now have a family of 9 kids.

I am finally back after being gone way too long!!!
Life just got crazy!
I still have a long way to go.....hubby bought me a tread mill that's just awesome, I have been trying to get on there everyday.
We also bought the family a early Christmas present...the Wii and the Wii fit plus.
But as you all know somethings have weight limits and the Wii fit plus has one of 300 lbs. Well, I hadn't gotten on the scale for a long time and was shocked when it told me I weighed too much.....This happened in front of my hubby and boys. I'm sure you all know how I felt!
So, that is one big reason I am back here. I need the support of Spark and all my friends here! I need to get this weight off so I can get on that Wii board so I can start loosing all this fat!!!!!

Hi everyone. My name is Olivia I am a mom of two very energetic kids. I also work as a fourth grade teacher in South Florida. Stressed does not even begin to describe me. Is there another word that goes beyond stress? Between taking care of my kids and stressing over my students at school I am spent by the end of the day. I am married to a hardworking hubby, but hard working equals not around to help enough, especially with homework and housework. I am a total stress eater. I start eating from the minute I leave work all the way until dinner. Which I will eat whether I am hungry or not. I need all the support I can get. Hope I can find an understanding shoulder to lean on here.

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

Hi, I'm Alicia I have a wonderful husband, five lonely kids and a great job. They all want/need something from me, so naturally I really feel overworked and unappreciated. Looking for positive support to help me through this time.

My long term goal is to get and stay within a healthy weight range. I'm currently counting calories and exercising 5 to 6 times a week. Sometimes my family demands impact my exercise schedule. In the past I've gotten up at 4:30 to 5 in the morning to exercise - but now that it colder getting out of the bed is really really hard. If I don't workout in the morning I don't get to exercise until almost 9 - which means sometimes I just too tired to exercise or I don't give it 100%.

To introduce myself better. I am 39, a hairstylist and mother of 2 grown daughters, which one of them is making me a nana. I live with my boyfriend and the younger of the daughters. I am about 5o lbs overweight. I have yoyoed most my life and am learning to eat healthy and regular. It is shaping up to be quite a journey. Wish me luck as I do you.

It's not about getting what you want, it's about wanting what you got.

Howdy! My name is Melissa or MJ, which ever you prefer to call me. I am married to the love of my life, who also happens to be my best friend. We have two teenage boys. Well technically neither of them are teenagers. The oldest is 18 and the youngest is 12. We have two Miniature Schnauzers, Pepper and Buddy.

I work in the admissions department at our local university. I love my job. There are times it is stressful, but I enjoy helping the students.

As you can tell by my screen name, I am going to be fit and at my goal weight by my 40th birthday. I plan on never having to "diet" again.

That is about it for me. It is nice to meet you all. Feel free to give me a shout or SparkFriend me, if you wish.

Good morning!

I'm a 38 y.o. mom of 3 daughters age 16,3 and 2. I currently live in Midlothian, VA but hope to return home to Colorado sometime soon. My life is incredibly hectic (stressed). Between work, my girls, my husband who was in a car accident 18 months and is till not able to work, and the fact that I am SO far away from family, I have decided the only thing to do is look to online support! This looks like a wonderful group and I am excited to become more involved!

Hi everyone - this seems like a fantastic, supportive group, and thank you to everyone who has already left a welcome message on my page!

I would love to introduce myself more fully, but at the moment I am a super-stressed-out Mummy, with final law exams starting next Monday and a great heap of study still to do... so I will just give you the short version :)

I'm 36, Aussie, two sons (Wombat 3 & Munchkin 1), happily married, working on losing around twenty kilos before my next birthday (and hopefully getting pregnant again)... other than that I shall have to let my spark page / blog speak for me as I MUST use my time wisely at the moment (much as I love to procrastinate...)

G'day! It's nice to be here :D

Though no-one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.

It's time to be the me I want to be.
