Obese Teacher becomes the student

I have struggled with weight my whole life, and now I am watching one of my sons begin to struggle with it, too. Enough is enough! I am relatively successful in my career as a teacher, but I am physically unhealthy and I am not going to live like this anymore.

SparkPoints: 513

Fitness Minutes: 403

My Goals:
My goal is to reach about 150 lbs--this is nearly half of my current weight.
My biggest reason for this is to be a better, more active, parent for my kids so that we can do things together as a family.

My Program:
I am beginning to get more active this summer by walking, going to the pool with my kids, and am going to purchase a bike this weekend to begin riding. I used to love biking when I was younger, so I hope I will still enjoy it.

Personal Information:
I live in a small town in Missouri and am a teacher. I am also working on my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership.

Other Information:
I love to read and see movies with my family.

Welcome to Sparkpeople and the cycling forum as well. I am a teacher as well and toward the end of my weight loss journey. I am 10 pounds from my goal. The last 10 is taking a long time in coming, but the most important part of this journey is that I have kept it off for a few years now and I am even now off all of my blood pressure meds and everything. Hang in there. You can do it. Think of what an inspiration you will be for both your family and your students.
