My goal is to make each day count...I don't want to allow any day to just coast by without some serious effort on my part. One day at a time, making the most of each day.

Since joining Sparkpeople nearly 4 years ago in December 2007, my life has utterly and completely changed. I've lost a bunch of weight. The lightness of body has increased my lightness of spirit, too...and it's a good thing, because the difficulties have increased as well! I'm now a single mom, busting my butt to try to make ends meet and take care of my great girls, ages 12 and 16. I'm dating again as well, which is super scary but super fun as well. Who'd have thought?

Since originally losing quite a bit of weight, it's been creeping back on over the past six months or so as I seem to exercise less and less. Well it recently occurred to me that I will be turning 40 in May, and what better way to celebrate than by being the healthiest, fittest, hottest mama I've ever been???!!!!
