My journey

Hi! I am a mom to a beautiful little girl. I want to turn my lifestyle around so I can give my little girl a better shot at a healthy life. I want to show my daughter there is another way. I don't want her to have the life long struggle that I have had up to this point.

I never really cared to eat right. It was never a priority to be healthy. I just ate what I wanted when I wanted - and however much I wanted. I never thought about long term health effects of being obese.

Hi! I am a mom to a beautiful little girl. I want to turn my lifestyle around so I can give my little girl a better shot at a healthy life. I want to show my daughter there is another way. I don't want her to have the life long struggle that I have had up to this point.

I never really cared to eat right. It was never a priority to be healthy. I just ate what I wanted when I wanted - and however much I wanted. I never thought about long term health effects of being obese.

Fast forward to today... I am a cardiac and renal nurse. I see the results of poor diet and no exercise everyday. I see the toll that diabetes, heart disease, hypertension and other problems can take on a person and their family. I don't want that for myself or my family.

I want to make lasting, permanent changes!

Thanks so much. Being a mommy is stressful, but so rewarding. I love being a mommy, and we are on our way to being the best mommies we can be!

I saw the adorable little image next to a comment on the daily spark and just had to click on your page to get a better view. The baby is soooooo cute!
I also enjoyed reading your spark page. I'm an ICU nurse and I definitely understand the motivation to do better when you see what happens with patients everyday.

Good luck on your weight loss journey
Kimberly
