Hi all!! I am a 36-year-old with a WONDERFULLY supportive husband, five (yes I said five) beautifully crazy kids, the job I LOVE, and a God who allows me to do all things through him. The only thing in my life I would like to change is my weight. At 5'9" I can generally hide the weight pretty well, but I can tell when trying to do physical things with my kids that I am not in the best of shape anymore. I also just had a baby in February of this year and I am feeling it!! I want/need to change my body and habits to make sure I'm here for my kiddos!! So my husband and I have decided to start eating right and exercising so we can be healthier and better examples for our kids. At ages 12, 12, 10, 8, and infant, they are still young enough to learn portion control and hunger signals and not have to go through what I've been through with weight issues. Hope you are all seeing results from your "lifestyle" changes (diets are for quick, usually short-lived weight loss, lifestyle changes are for life)!!!
