In 2010, my New Year's resolution was to start taking care of myself. I am a mom of a 4 & 7 year old, a 3rd grade teacher, a Church musician, and a wife. Lots on my plate, just like everyone else. I started my journey in January, and by June, I had lost 30 pounds. I started training for a 1/2 marathon in September (the other part of my New year's resolution). Successfully completed that. In November of that year, my dad (my best friend) was diagnosed with cancer. 2 days after my 34th birthday, he died. This shattered my world. So, I found my comfort in food. I would eat a cookie, or ice cream, look at my husband, and say, "Leave me alone, I'm comfort eating." All my bad habits came rushing back. Since the death of my dad, I have put back 20 of those pounds. I have been unable to successfully recover my healthy eating habits. I try, and try, but I'm constantly giving in to my habits. I want to do well in life and get somewhere back to where I belong. I keep trying all these different diets, but I need motivation. That's one of the many reason I came back to Spark People. A group of total strangers can motivate me and push me through this wall that is my own mind.

Member Since: 4/16/2011

Fitness Minutes: 5,534

My Goals:
To get back into my "skinny" jeans (been there once, I can do it again).

Maybe run another 1/2 marathon - possibly a full.

Be able to keep up with my very active and growing children.

To feel good about myself.


My Program:
I'm starting out with small steps, the first one being tracking my food, EVERYTHING! I need to be honest about what I'm doing.
