Hi, I am trying to lose weight and be healthier. I always work better with some sort of motivation and so I found SparkPeople and I am hoping this helps!! I have been married 26 years, and am so glad I have been! My husband and I have 5 kids ranging from 24 yrs to 8 yrs and it has been a great and bumpy ride. I sell antiques and collectibles at my online mall store at Rubylane under the name Five4us (5 kids is why the name).

I have not felt well for awhile and knew I was not going down the right path, so my hubby and I got a treadmill with a trainer package -- I love it! I am still on the beginner workout, but that is 20 minutes of movement I wasn't doing before. I am trying to be consistant with it and that is hard to do. After getting the treadmill I found out my Thyroid doesn't work and am now on medicine for that == I FEEL BETTER THAN I HAVE IN YEARS. I am now back to coaching softball and playing more with my kids. I feel 20 years younger. But now I NEED to get in shape. I NEED to lose weight. My Dad is diabetic and I don't want to go there!

I love watching my kids play sports or music or anything they do. That is our entertainment and our joy. The treadmill and the exercise I started is strictly for me though. I want to be the best I can be and I want to be thinner -- or maybe just not FAT!

workout calorie counter is here!
