Finding myself again

This year I turn 40. I've been dreading it for more than a decade, but now - since there is no escape - I'm viewing it as a challenge to myself to be better than I was in my thirties. The thirties were difficult in many ways, and I lost myself somewhere along the way.

But now, I'm back. I've renewed my focus and I am regaining control of my life. I want to be healthier by limiting portion sizes, exercising regularly, and spending more time appreciating what I have and ...
This year I turn 40. I've been dreading it for more than a decade, but now - since there is no escape - I'm viewing it as a challenge to myself to be better than I was in my thirties. The thirties were difficult in many ways, and I lost myself somewhere along the way.

But now, I'm back. I've renewed my focus and I am regaining control of my life. I want to be healthier by limiting portion sizes, exercising regularly, and spending more time appreciating what I have and recognizing the beauty in life around me. Of course, I also want to lose some weight (I'm still carrying "baby weight" and my youngest is 5).

I know I can do this if I put my mind to it. (I lost 25 pounds a few years ago with SparkPeople, but then life became too hectic and I didn't maintain the lifestyle.) I want to be fit and fabulous at 40 - not flabby and frumpy. This time, there's no stopping me!

It doesnt look like you've been on for a while...not sure. I know what you mean about becoming you again and not just mom. Thats my big motivator. I have 4 children. I've had three of those in the last three years. Man has it taken a toll on my body! I also have similar goals as you, so I thought if you were still on here I would drop a HI to you and let you know I would love to be an accountability partner if you are looking for one! BTW, your kids are soooooo cute!
