Hi everyone. I just found this site on DS and decided to join. I myself have had loved ones in prison and I myself have been there. I wanted to say to all the mothers who have sons or daughters in prison and feel like they want to give up on them or think that they will never change their ways... To hang onto the hope that they can and will. It took me several times of Jail and a short time in prison to finally realize that this was not the kind of life I wanted to live. How I hurt everyone that loved me and cared about me. I took my time and did everything I could. I was in a treatment program inside the prison that was exstensive. 8 hrs a day 5 days a week for 4 months. They coverd every kind of topic you could think of. Anger Management, Criminal thinking, Parenting, Drug and Alcohal abuse, etc etc... They gave us tools.. So many tools to use when we got out and ways to help us change our criminal thinking process. From the age of 18 till the age 27 I was on probation. I would get off for a month and find myself breaking the law again.... I have not broke the law now for 4 yrs. I got an early relase from my probation this last time for good behavior and getting everything payed and doing my community service. My parents never gave up on me... Without them I don't know what I would have done. Their support and love finally got me to see what I was doing. So I guess I wanted to share that will you... Now my family is the most important thing to me. I love having the great relationship we do. I know I have hurt them so deeply by things I have done..... The good thing is I still have time to show them how much they mean to me....

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...
