NAFTA Super Highway! READ


My daughter brought this to my attention. I wanted to share this with all of you since in the article it states that most of America is asleep on this subject. This is very alarming to me. Please pass this on so that we all become aware of this coming event that has been passed without most of us knowing about it.

My Family Fun Book!

If you are a bargain hunter like we are or just like to get a good deal then here is a couple fgreat deals for you. Every year our family buys the Family Fun Book for $20.00. This is a great book of coupons. It not only saves you money on dinning out but golfing, bowling, go-karting, Daytona Lagoon, Museums and many more places to gowith the family and have fun. It also supports our schools. You can purchase these from your local school or from this website www.myfamilyfunbook.com These books are good all year more like 15 months. We don't go anywhere without it and it gets you to try new places that you probably would never have tried.
The next bargain is at www.myhometownnews.net on they have 50% off gift certificates to all different places. It changes from week to week what gift certificates they have. On friday monrings between 9:30 and 10:15 am they update with the new ones. The really good places do sell out fast so you have to check out the site to see what you want first and then be on there when it is updated so you can get them. Great gifts/presents for any occassion. This is for Brevard, Indian River, Martin, Palm Beach, St. Lucie and Volusia Counties. So if you have family or friends in any of the other counties let them know about it.

Would you stand up or would yo be afraid? I would hope that we would stand up.

Today my little men turn 12 years old. They are growing up so fast. I know they are excited to be tweens and being in young men's now. They have been waiting for the day to get out of Primary.We are going to have Football Parties with Jacob on Friday evening and Sunday afternoon with Jared. Jacobs favorite football team The Dallas Cowboys are playing Friday evening and the Philadelphia Eagles are playing Sunday afternoon. This year they didn't want one celebration together they wanted to have their own. Their morning started off wonderful. Mark came over and took them to breakfast. They had a blast this morning laughing and playing around with each other and everyone. Happy Birthday Boys I Love you!

J & J Made Second Class

Jacob and Jared are moving up in the Scout world. Tonight they had a Court of Honor during Boy Scouts. The boys received their second class rank. Dylan, didn't receive anything this evening since he missed board of review last week for a baseball game. I am so proud of all the boys accomplishments. Great Job Boys!
I Love You, MoM

1 lb, YES!


Now let me tell you how I got on this journey. I am such a people pleaser (the stress that comes with this) and wanting to make everyone happy all the time, I don't like confrontations (I am shy by nature until I get to know you), my relationship with my EX and his wife wasn't/still isn't very good, being a single mother of 4 children. At the time a teenage daughter trying to push her limits finding her way and three young boys dealing with their parents not getting along and being ADHD, just trying to make ends meat with no real support system finally got to me. So about 3 years ago the summer of 2005, I got really depressed and finally had to go on medication for depression for about year. I gradually gained 40lbs. I had always been a size 1 to 3 my entire life never weighing over 115lb except during pregnancy. As I gained weight people say you are looking healthier because I was really skinny for my 5'6 frame. So I didn't think about how much I was/had gained until someone took a picture of me and I couldn't believe what I saw. Other people thought I was pregnant because I gained most of it in my stomach area. I felt bad but not bad enough to really do something about it until one of my boys started saying things to me about it. I tried detox diets, not eating still no getting off my lazy hind end and moving. So when I found out a couple of my girlfriends from church had started Weight Watchers (about 12 Weeks ago) and were going to meetings on Tuesday evenings and walking in the evenings. So I asked if I could join them on their walks and the next week I joined WW and started going to the meetings as well . I needed accountability and a support group. I have stuck with it through the ups and downs. I go weigh in even when I think I have just gained 5 lbs that week. I want to be held accountable with a reality check. So I am so excited to have reached the 10lb mark. We all need to take care of our selves because we deserve it and our families deserve us to be in the best shape for our health. So on daily basis I pray and thank My Heavenly Father for my friends who brought Weight Watchers into my life and pray for the strength that I need to do what is needed on this journey because it is not and overnight journey it is small steps you take to make your goal and to keep your goal for a lifetime. Thank You Girls!
