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.

    The snow has almost all melted, as the temperatures are rising,
    The flocks and sounds of geese telling us they are arriving
    The robins are here and other birds are chirping
    The trees will soon be budding,
    Flowers will be peaking out of the dirt and showing
    us all the beauty that Spring is bringing.
    And that's no April Fooling!

    The razor blade is sharp but can’t cut a tree;
    The axe is strong but can’t cut the hair.
    Everyone is important according to his/her unique purpose,
    So never look down upon anyone... unless you are looking at their shoes.

    Loving thoughts & prayers that all is well with you! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thanks, Karen for the beautiful comment on my page! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Women are soft and feminine, pretty and stylish.
    We are strong in heart. We keep going on and on.
    We persevere...
    Women are dependable, loving, and caring.
    We keep our men going, when times are rough,
    We are very tough.

    There are all kinds of beautiful women in the world...
    All shapes and sizes, different personalities.
    Women make up a good part of the world,
    We go through a lot.
    We get the worst end..of breakups and heartache.
    We get the emotional baggage, the periods, the cramps,
    But that is only a small fraction of who we are.

    Women can be anyone we want! We're independent.
    We can be doctors, lawyers, teachers,
    Journalists, surgeons, accountants, or soldiers.
    The world is our oyster, and we are the pearls.
    Love fills our souls...we are so full of life.

    Women shine like diamonds in the night sky.
    We may rise and fall, but through it all,
    We stand up tall.

    God created someone who is wise, makes sacrifices, encourages, loves others,
    and yes, someone who never gives up..just a few reasons why...
