I am looking for 4-6 other women to form a phone based support group -- with the idea of "meeting" and talking and supporting each other at set times a couple days a week. As a single professional mom the best time for me to meet is during the school day...maybe mornings....I'd envisioned pulling together a small group that could "meet" and talk perhaps for 45 min or an hour twice a week. It's hard for me to get to most AA meetings since so many of them are at night...right when I need to be home with my kids. But during the day I (or you, if you're interested in this) might find it quite possible to fit in a support call ...and given our tendency to multi task...could do so while folding laundry or on a walk for exercise. I'm most interested in forming a women's only support group -- with a diversity of members (different life stages, kids or no kids, etc.) As for logistics, there are numerous conference call services now that are "free" in that there are no fees on top of the call to the conference number...such as www.freeconference.com The goal would simply be to support each other's goals in a nurturning way, help celebrate the little victories, help brainstorm solutions & ideas....just be there to check in with each other...not to replace all other forms of support such as live AA meetings or online support...but in addition to whatever other treatments or forms of support are being used. Please feel free to get back to me if you're interested in exploring this..... KarinLL.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
