I would like to lead this team better. I have gotten too busy and let this team die. I am sorry about that. My name is Karen. I'm a 54 year old hospital nurse. I have 9 children. The oldest is 35 and the youngest is 12. I have 2 grandsons and 2 granddaughters and another granddaughter due any day.I have 1 dog. She was rescued by our local police from a hot car. I'm so glad she had no ill effects from this for she is a joy to me. I like to read and knit. I need to lose about 10-15 pounds. I need to get into the exercise habit. Most of all I need God and to make him first in my life. Please give me any and all of your ideas for this team!

Hi, my name is Eileen. I've been on Sparkpeople off and on for quite a while. I'm currently back on and very serious about my weight loss. I'm a member of 5 other teams and a leader on 4. One Christian team I belong to is so huge I'm lost in the shuffle. Was so happy to see this team is smaller. I would love to get to know everyone on here and make some friends. I don't have any friends I can get with in person so my cyber friends are very important to me. I hope to be an encouragement and motivator for others on here and do look forward to getting to know more about everyone. Hope to see you on here!

No, John has an appt. Along with another handicapped young man.

When he left the nursing faculty he refused to go home with us. After all, he had been on his own for nearly 30years.

The care started out at 3 x a week. Then, it was reduced to 2 a week. Now we hear it will soon be 1 a week! What do they expect us to do?

My long x friends have slowly faded away. Leaving me with no one I can pour my heart out to! I get more support from my on line friends. And to that a BIG thank you

wow Janet .. you and your family sure have been going through a LOT the last year! Glad you've been able to catch us up a little on what is going on. Praying now for your son, for your husband and for you. Is your son living with you; and if so is only getting the health care 2-3 days a week enough?

I have been MIA.
All year has been terrible! First, I had some flare ups with illness. Some meds had to be adjusted. Then hubby was up on a ladder. He and the ladder came crashing down on the porch. His elbow and knee was banged up. He was lucky considering he is 79 yrs..

Then the next early morning after our son got off work, he became I'll again. Hubby took him to the ER.

Fast forward. He is fighting abdominal cancer, colon cancer, and, late stage renal disease. All stage 3. He is 51 yrs. And Autistic.

That's where I have been.

Prayers for John, PLEASE.

Every two weeks he gets double doses of Chemotherapy. We have Home Health Care two to three times a week. Other than that it's just hubby and I. And, I am 75 and handicapped!

All prayers are appreciated.

Hugs,
Janet

Well, hello from a slightly chilly Florida. Funny, it's 52 here and the predicted high for today is 73. Yep, cold by local standards :)

About your daughter, I wanted to share some information that I have recently learned in a parenting boothcamp. My oldest son (8) can be hurtful too, and I am always praying on how to help him. Well, in this boothcamp I learned some tricks that seem to be working somewhat. The best thing I've learned is to keep in mind "I can stay calm so you can stay calm". You can say it out loud...well, not sure how that would work on an angry teenager, but you can try. Or you can just repeat it to yourself.

Another trick is to keep in mind that you have nothing nothing nothing to do with her anger. That's a tough one, because your mother-heart tells you otherwise. We mothers have a habit of taking every negative emotion from those we love, and pulling it into our own heart. Now, the trick is that we do NOT stop caring or loving, but we can accept that we are not part of their meltdown/anger/tantrum/frustration/hurt. Those are their emotions, and they have to deal with them. The best way we can help them is by stepping back and staying calm. Very hard to do! But I can see it working with my son. I step back, I repeat "I can stay calm so you can stay calm" in my head, and when he's ready for hugs, I'm calm enough to really hug him with love.

For me, the hardest thing was not to get dragged into the chaos of his tantrums. He's my son, and I want him to be happy, and calm, and stop saying hurtful things. But I can't make him do anything...well, I can use anger and threats and yelling to end the situation, but that is not a long term solution. But I can change MY behavior, and I have.

By staying calm, I teach by example. By staying calm, I can express the love I feel for him, and give him what he really needs.

Doesn't mean he gets away with yelling or throwing things. There are consequences, of course. But by not taking his anger into my own heart, I can give him a safe place to get back to. And I feel closer to God when I can step back from the anger. Praying while you're in the middle of chaos, especially if you let anger into your heart is difficult!

Not sure if any of this will help you, but I felt I needed to share this. The bootcamp I'm doing is based on a book called Concious Parenting, but I haven't read it yet. Might be worth looking into.

Life is made up of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad, but the bad things don't spoil the good things or make them unimportant.

Hello everyone on this very cold winter day in NY. I just joined this team and pray that I will grow closer to our Lord and share Him through my actions. Also, that I will find good friends here.

A little about me: My age is that of a grandmother, yet I have a 13 year old. My daughter is adopted and full of anger, which she directs at me, the one who makes her accountable for her actions. Everyday she goes out of her way to be hurtful. So I sincerely would appreciate your prayers. I especially need prayers to be a patient and loving mother to her. Lastly, I joined because I very much want to know our Lord, truly love Him, serve Him daily by doing His will and not mine. May I do little things for others with great love so others will see Our Lord and never see me.

God bless you and thank you.

Hi all,

My name is Alecia, I'm 39, and have been struggling with weight since the birth of my first child. She is now 13, and I have two more, and the weight has steadily climbed all those years.

I am a "preacher's kid" so grew up in the church and have always relied on God in my life. I am a stay at home mom, and I teach private music lessons.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better, and to share Christian fellowship with each other.

Hi! My name is Mary and I am 43. I am married and have 2 girls ages 4 and 7. I am an elementary teacher but have been a stay-at- home mom since my first was born. I have always been on the heavier end (5'9" and 180ish pounds) but have gained 20 more in the last 6 months and am feeling sluggish and frustrated. I have tried many times and am really hoping accountability and community will help.

My name is Lori Anne, I've been on sparks for years and this time I let myself get back to my old self, not caring, drinking coca cola's all the time and snacking (unhealthy snacks) constantly. I am 43 and I am going to be a new grandma in 6 months. I would like to be more healthy than I am now. I also need to show my daughter n law the light on weight gain and loss.

I'm active mentally and with my church but physically I hurt all over and don't ever seem to feel like doing anything, so I am asking for prayers too as I start this journey over.
Thank you,

Hello everybody, I'm not exactly sure what to tell you about me. I am new to all this message and team stuff, but I must get this weight off and I am so hoping being active in groups will help keep me motivated to do just that, and hopefully make some new friends along the way. Im married, with 2 grown children and 4 grandchildren. And they are my world. And im so glad there is a group like this on this site. Thank you for letting me participate.

Hi ladies, I recently joined this group and this says to introduce myself. I am 57 yrs old, I have 7 adult kids and 12 grandkids with 1 more coming soon, 2 great grandsons. I've lived in Southwest Washington State most of my life calling Castle Rock my hometown.
I love to scrapbook and I make all kinds of cards birthday, Christmas, any holiday and some cards I call just because.... I also like to do embroidery. I love to read Louis L'Amour westerns, especially The Sackett series. I also love to watch westerns and the cooking channel and the food network shows.
Last year I almost died, I was in ICU and I asked for a Preacherman to come pray for me. So he did ...something happened to me at that moment like The Holy Spirit went straight into my heart and soul. By late that afternoon I was feeling better and by the next evening I was out of ICU and back upstairs for 3 more days. I have prayed everyday since, I read passages out of the Bible everyday, and I am more peaceful inside.
Well now you know the good stuff and my breakfast is ready, God Bless each and everyone of you...B.

Hi ladies!

I was so excited to find this group. My name's Jean. I don't actually know what to say, but I'm thankful to have found this group. I look forward to being a part of it, and I'm hopeful. I struggle with fear of not succeeding, though I know I shouldn't. It's just that I've tried for many years to conquer this thing and I've not had a lot of success. Nonetheless, I'm here. I'm hopeful that the wisdom and maturity I've gained will help me truly trample this deadly problem.

Hi, I'm Penny, I'm from Katy, TX right outside of Houston...it's HOT! I've been at SP for several months and have done okay. I have had a couple of personal things that have pulled me away for a couple of weeks here and there but I always come back! I LOVE the idea of women helping women...I think that's wonderful.
Right now, I just started on a 5k training program here in my town with a local running program so that's my cardio for the time being. I want to work in some strength training to counter that. I am learning to eat healthy and change my life. God is my rock. He's my ALL...with Him I can do anything.

I am an intellingent person. I will control my emotions and not let my emotions control me. Everytime I am tempted to use food to satisfy my frustrated desires, build up my enjured ego or dull my senses, I will remember...even though I overeat in private, my excess poundage is there for all the world to see.
I will take off pounds sensibly!

Hi everyone!

I am Cynthia a grateful believer in Jesus Christ. I am 35..will be 36 this July 26th. I have been here at SP for 5 years. I have grown in strides emotionally and somewhat spiritually, but still struggle with Binge Eating and now have regained all the 30 that I lost. I have a host of medical problems that make life a little difficult; fibromylagia and depression being my main nemusses. I'm glad to have found this team. I look forward to getting to know each of you!

Hello everyone!
I am really grateful that SP recommended this team. I am not new to SP, but I had taken a 3 year break from logging everything here, and I am new to SparkTeams.

I currently live in Ukraine and I work at a health-focused NGO. I think it is a great idea to include faith and this journey we are all on, so I am looking forward to communicating and growing (only in spirit, hopefully :) ) with everyone!

Good Morning Ladies!

I joined a few days ago but the stomach flu ran through our home and well.... I haven't had time to do much anything, so I thought I would introduce myself finally!

I am a single mama living in Arkansas, originally from Oregon. I have 5 bio children - 2 in college, 1 living at home that just graduated and is about to enter college, and a 10 and 12 year old. I currently have four foster children as well.

I am new to SP, I joined two months ago but finding it really beneficial in helping me to lose the weight. I have lost 23 pounds so far! Woohoo! I eat primarily a whole foods diet, except that I rarely eat any grains at all, with exception of sprouted grains on occasion in tortillas or something similar.

I am a Christian, I teach Sunday School at a small country church. I also am a therapist and work primarily with children at this time, though I may soon shift back to working with adults as well.

Glad to be here and part of this new group!

My name is Karen. Ive been married for 21 years but Ive known my husband for 28 years. I'm the mother of 9 and I have 2 grandchildren and 4 step grandchildren. Im a RN and Ive worked on a medical floor for almost 22 years. My husband isn't a christian but I have been a christian for 30 years. I want to devote more time to prayer, Bible study and becoming a more godly woman. I have been praying more lately because of family problems that I wrote a recent blog about. Thanks for asking me to join this team. emoticon

Thank you for inviting me to join this team. I think this was God at work, prodding me to be more accountable.

My name is Claire, my husband is a pastor, and has been for over 22 years. We have two sons, both in college. The oldest is graduating in May from Ohio State and will be moving to Germany where he will be married in October to a wonderful Christian girl. She is German and met Wes when she was an exchange student during Wes' senior year. Our other son goes to Bowling Green State University. So we have an empty nest, sort of. We do have two cats who are our babies.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you all.
