I am a happily married, Mom of 3 great kids! I love my life and my family, but I do NOT love my current weight, nor the way I look, nor the way I feel physically. I have battled this my whole life, but I am as big as I have ever been and I am now a diabetic. I will be 47 in February, and I am really starting to feel like a ticking time bomb. Really not sure how many birthdays I will have left if I continue on this way. I am getting to the point where I am scared every day of dropping of a heart attack or stroke or not waking up one day!! I love my kids and my husband SO much and I do not want to leave him a widow and them without a mother. I struggle daily with staying on-track, mostly because I have been "dieting" my whole life, tried everything under the sun short of surgery (including SparkPeople), and am just plain sick of it!! I need to see results...I need daily motivation...I need for eating healthy to be something I can learn to enjoy, not something that is chore. I am looking forward to trying this again, and I hope to get my husband on board with me too!! I also hope I will make a few good friends along the way!!!

My Goals:
Well, it had been my grand plan to lose this weight BEFORE turning 40, but that fell to the wayside. Now, a dear friend has motivated me to pick myself back up and get back on the horse! Now I will just lose it before turning 44!! I have 3 beautiful kids that I want to see grow up!!! So far as my shorter term goals, I want to lose 50, just because that is a more reasonable number for me to start!!

My Program:
I amfollowing Spark Diabetic Plan and have just signed up for the Spark Coaching!!

Personal Information:
I live in central Ohio, between Columbus and Cleveland!! Love it here!!

Other Information:
I love my family--we do almost everything together!! I love music, especially JOSH GROBAN! I love pets! Especially dachshunds (I have 4!!) I love to paint! I recently had 3 of my paintings accepted into a local gallery, and actually sold one about 3 weeks ago!! =)

    It sounds like we could help each other out in the motivation department. I live in Licking county and drive to work through the week to Columbus.

    emoticon Hi, sweet Amy! Hope all is well! emoticon
    The boys went to their annual summer camp for a whole week, so Ricky and I enjoyed a short-n-sweet vacation in our favorite tourist spot, Pismo Beach... where I unfortunately ate ALL the wrong foods! emoticon On the positive side, I actually used a hotel fitness room for the first time in my LIFE, hahaha! emoticon And I ran along the beach, too, which was *amazing*! So, next time I will know to be better prepared in the dining department.
    How are things going? Keep Sparkin'! emoticon
