A Good Shove

Thursday, November 07, 2019

Hi everyone! Someone asked me what I have been up to after I resurfaced again( for the umpteenth time.) so I thought it was time for a little update. Two years ago two of my three children moved out within weeks of each other. My oldest moved to Minnesota and my middle rebel child joined the Marines. That left just our youngest one at home. He is now 16. He is quiet and requires very little from me.

Both of the older ones are married and we are going to be grandparents in the spring! emoticon
Anyway, If I am being honest, I have experienced a bit of my empty nest blues. I did manage to loose 26 pounds last year, emoticon but I have many more to go.
Feeling a little empty, truth be told, and decided to spend some more time on here after my doctor encouraged me to step up my game.
I need a giant push forward. Maybe even a good shove. Glad to see some of my favorite sparkpeople are still here! Onward friends. emoticon

    Great job with the weight loss, Tricia! You’ve been missed, dear Lady! I do remember the time when my youngest left home for college....someone would ask me how Monica was (my baby) & I would respond with tears & crying! I look back now & realize I was responding to the change in my role as mom. Let it be known that my daughter will be forty this month & she still needs her mom on occasion! I am still the mom. And life did change...it was all good!

    Congrats on becoming a grandma soon! It is an amazing place to be, by golly! You’re gonna love it!

    And just keep pushing forward on your weight loss journey...you’re worth the effort! emoticon
