I found SparkPeople on August of 2008, when I stepped on the scale and realized I was at my heaviest point ever (even when I was pregnant)! Time to get down to business! I lost my dad at the age of 55, and that scared the living daylights out of me! I could get hit by a bus tomorrow, but I want to know that I did everything that I could to take care of myself and live a healthy lifestyle. For not only me, but my kids and husband.

I joined WW on Jan 23, 2013. I now have lost another 17lbs, for a total 26lbs from when I joined SparkPeople. You all are helping me do that! Thank you, way in advance!! :)

Good luck to everyone! I wish you well! Thanks for visiting my page! We are all in this together!!

TURBO FIRE!!! LOVE IT! I hate when I miss workout. We got a new basketball goal for Christmas 2011 and so we spend a lot of time outside (weather permitting) shooting the basketball. I had lost 9lbs (fluctuating between 9 and 15lbs lost)since I joined SP. I joined WW on Jan. 23, 2013 and so far, it's been successful. Up to this point, I have lost 17lbs more lbs. Going strong and have no intentions of stopping there!!! :-)

Personal Information:
My name is Amy and I am 39 years old. I have 3 beautiful children ages 10, 9, and 7 and a wonderful husband of 14 years (Phew!) on Sept 24th. My father passed away 9 years ago with diabetes and heart disease. It has terrified me so much it makes me think about things in a whole new perspective.

Other Information:
I love being with my family, reading, playing in my yard (yes, yardwork), and getting outdoors. Love spring and fall, and hearing the laughter of my children. LOVE to cook! I am a 3rd shifter, so sleep isn't 2nd nature to me, and I'll take it when I can get it, but I love it!!!

    Aren't those memories from our childhood so bittersweet? So wonderful and tender, yet the wistfulness we feel at the changes that have occurred in our lives. Thank you for reading my Anticipation blog and leaving such a touching comment.

    Thanks for reading and commenting on my Salad blog. It really was Yum-O! I would ship it, but think you would enjoy all the fresh flavors better if you made it at home. If Spring won't "spring," I'll just make my own!

    Yes, it messes up a lot of things. I just got used to the last change. Now to get used to this one again!
    Oh well, there's worse things I suppose.
    Have a good week.

    Nice pics of family. Can I ask how tall you are?
    I got a Fitbit several days ago & I volunteer on Saturdays at a thrift store. I always wondered how many steps I took there as I sort, price & place out there to sell.
    Well I found out I walked about 12,000 steps & that was a slow day! Now, to get that many steps here on the homefront!
    You have a great points day! Good for you that you are working wonders with yourself! I'm so happy for you!
