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.

    This isn't about the numbers on some scale emoticon or a long list of shouldn'ts and couldn'ts. This is about YOU!! It's about feeling fit, strong, getting a glow, feeling alive, turning your back on sluggishness and starting fresh-----oozing confidence. It is about radiance and zest.....and an abundance of old-fashioned energy! It's about ditching the doldrums. This is a look stunning, feel stunning, I've-never-felt-so ALIVE lifestyle. This is about FINALLY becoming who you were ALWAYS meant to be-----gorgeous, vibrant, unstoppable!!! Let's meet at the finish line emoticon and lovin' it!!!

    I like your thinking on "Coffee with a kiss good morning" just be prepared, coffee is an acquired taste and it is bitter.
    I like my with, are you ready for this detail, 12 twist of fresh ground sea salt, stir until fully dissolved, heat for an extra minute in the microwave, then add 2 tablespoons of International Delight Caramel Chocolate non dairy creamer. Yummy salted caramel mocha!
    You enjoy your coffee!! Find the favs that make you happy!

    Hey thanks for your comment on my blog post! Coffee is delicious! I never started drinking coffee until my late 30's when on a girl trip, they were all drinking it and I just wanted to be part of the group. But if you've never had it, I don't suppose you're missing much.
