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!!

My Program:
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!!!

    You are an amazing person!!! I would be pulling my hair out by now with all thoe people in my house! You deserve a medal :)
    It sure is nice to have the kids back in school. I was hoping to take the first couple of days and just enjoy the peace and quiet but no, hasn't happened yet. Maybe tomorrow?!
    You are doing good to maintain with all you have had going on. When your company leaves maybe you can get back into your normal routine. I think you are doing great :)
    Are you still working 3rd shift? Are you getting any sleep? I worry about you!
    Hope you have a super day! Talk to you SOON!
