we have 11 kids, (10 births and 1 nephew we raised from age 7) ages 34-13. Five kids is a lot, once they outnumber you
it's a lot! We only have 4 that are under 18 now and life has gotten a lot easier than it was during the baby years. I love my teens and young adults, they are amazing people. My daughters 22 and 15(I only have 2 girls) sing gospel music (and depending on the venue jazz, country and blues) together so we are kept pretty busy going to open mics and church concerts. I finally feel like I can keep up!
I am at 191 again today, I'm okay being here, it is kind of a good place to rest for a bit. I spent the last 30 years being over 250 pounds so I think my body has to rest a bit at this weight.
a reminder from myself...
I have to fight the tendency of stinkin' thinkin' to give up because I'm not progressing. As long as I am still moving and watching what I put in my mouth then I am progressing no matter what the scale says.
