Kimber, my mom is my best friend and never have any problems but weight issues too. After I did what I did my mom realized that she was doing to me what my grandma did to her. She felt so bad. Since then she has been trying to be easy on me. She knows that I have a lot on my plate (as does she) and that I am the rock that keeps the family together. She knows that I have been eating to keep my feelings at bay so I can be there for her, my sister and my sister-in-law and nephews. I am starting to put my efforts into exercise again and not eating. Its harder to get back to it but I am trying my best.

Heather that's all you can do is try. I am glad you are trying to do the right thing. Sometimes you have a person know how they make you feel. Your family is still in my friends.

The other day my younger son took the scale out of the bathroom pretending the scale was his copier machine. I gotta put the scale back in the bathroom it has been days since I've stepped on it. I usually weigh myself every morning. I'm clueless as to how much I'm weighing.

Shatema, hope your headache is gone by now. When is your birthday?

Now I know why I step on the scale every morning I've gained 2 lbs it's not that much but not very good.

I want to find a yoga class to go to but it's hard finding one close by and to fit into my schedule.

Welcome Marfa!!

I need to lose weight and tone all over but I would love to lose it first in my stomach!

So I have been back on point with workout and eating right. In the last 3 weeks I have lost 9 lbs!! I am actually in a new decade now!! WOO HOO!! I have to say that I am focused and motivated now. I feel like I did a little over 2 years ago! I have a goal to burn 1000+ calories a day and eat between 11-1,400 calories a day. I am doing well and am hoping for the weight to melt off like it did the last time I did this!!

I came across a good website foodfacts.com it rates different foods and has the nutritional values listed and has weight watchers points listed.

WOW, it's been quiet here. So sorry that I have not been around much, this summer has been very busy and there have been so many issues in my family. Dad was dx with stage 3 metastatic cancer and I found out yesterday that the mass is too big and they cannot operate on it. He is on experimental drugs, and 100% chemo and radiation hoping to try to shrink the mass. If this doesn't work we are looking at 6-12 months, if we are lucky :'( Doctors also found a mass in my grandma's intestine and operated. It too, was cancerous. It had also spread to some of her lymph nodes. At first doctors were saying that she was just have to take pills but not they are saying that it is worse then they though and she needs chemo but is too sick for it. Also, her incision, from her surgery, is infected because she is not getting proper wound care in the nursing home!! We are VERY upset with the nursing home. So right now doctors are working on her wound and then they will look into chemo, it she agrees to it. Lastly, Autumn's Godmother (one of my oldest friends) was dx last year with stage 4 cervical cancer but went into remission earlier this year. Well, they found 2 more masses in her abdomen, near her diaphragm. The kicker, her hubby switched jobs and they only have medical coverage until7/31 and then lose it until the new insurance kicks in on 9/1. One month without chemo can be life or death for her. Needless to say, i am a freaking mess. I am not sleeping and when I am I am having nightmares. I know that God only gives us what we can handle but COME ON NOW!!
On a good note, I started back to working out in the house and at the gym plus following My Fitness Pal for calorie counting and as of this morning I am down 12lbs!! I have got myself into the rhythm of working out when I am stressed and not eating.
I hope everyone's summer is going well.
