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!!!

    Thank you so much for your comments on my recent blog “Congratulations – you have won 86,400…” I have been overwhelmed and honoured by the response and receiving a popular blog award.
    In the past three weeks my mother-in-law passed away at 93, my brother-in-law had open heart surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm and my son’s mother-in-law has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer and is undergoing radical surgery tomorrow.
    Together with these events, the article came to my inbox as a timely reminder to me that our time here is numbered and every minute that we are given is too precious to waste on unimportant negativity.
    As Sparkie friends, we are sharing the journey to focus on being as healthy as possible and finding a successful balance in our lives – through healthy eating, exercise and happy relationships – I just wanted to share the article with everyone and I am humbled that it also resonated with so many others.
    Thanks for your support and best wishes for much happiness in the future.

    Hiya Amy! How are you? Thanks for stopping by my page...I love hearing from you. I can't believe you have your kids registered already! When do they start back? We don't start until after Labor Day so registration is still a couple of weeks away. I'm kind of ready to have them go back so my life will settle down a little bit :)
    So how are you and your hubby doing on your eating? Is the Phentermine working well for him? That is so great to have that support for each other. I sure envy you emoticon
    I think I am ready to get back in the game and get this weight off. I really need to work on my eating and kick my workouts up. (I've been a little lazy this summer). Thanks for all of your support and for not giving up on me!! I don't know what I would do without are a sweetheart! emoticon
    I hope you have a fantastic day and keep smiling :) Talk to you soon!
