My name is Sammy. I'm 26, a mother of 2 little girls under the age of 4, wife to a video-gaming expert and a sucker for my pitbull, PJ. I live in the Washington, D.C. area, and I'm in the process of starting up a business. It's hard work, but satisfying! I'm actually an Arizona native, but almost 2 years ago our family made the decision to leave the southwest for the (literally!) greener pastures of the East Coast.

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
Stop mindless late-night snacking (I'm looking at you potato chips!)

Work out daily (too icy and cold to jog, but Kinect has some fabulous, kick your butt, break a sweat games! Love it!)

My Program:
In a nutshell:

Workout more

Stop eating when I'm not really hungry (especially at night)

Work on positive thinking and opt for more fruits, veggies and whole grains instead of refined and processed foods. Yummy? Oh heck yes! But success tastes better than a double cheeseburger ANY day!

Personal Information:
Some of my favorite things in life are reading (my Kindle is ALWAYS with me!), playing Barbies with my girls and volunteering as a veterinary rehab nurse. I used to do this full time, but an accident earlier this year cost me the use of my left hand. Now it is a hobby rather than a career!

Like many, I used to be very fit and healthy, but having kids and adjusting to "grown-up" life has taken it's toll. Being healthy and active used to be something that was important to me, but priorities changed, fitness took a backseat to other things and before I knew it I was a much different person on the outside from who I used to be! Now it's time to refocus on me and take care of myself again :0)

Other Information:
You can ALWAYS msg me using Spark Mail. If we find that we have a lot in common, we can exchange personal emails and AIM screen-names. But that's not info appropriate for a public profile, lol ;0)

I'm looking for friends, for community, and even just support from other people who know that they need to do to change their lifestyle (like me!) but first need to break the habits associated with how we got to this point in our lives. No one here is alone in their goals, needs and wants - and I would be thrilled to form a support network of friends so that we can do this together!
