Hi, My name is Melissa but, I am fond of Mel. I am married and I have four children. My two youngest are twins. I am a homemaker/student. I had over 100lbs to lose when I started SparkPeople and now I have 90 pounds to lose. I would like to meet some gal friends in the Albany area. I would like to rediscover who I am aside from my children/home.

New Entry 2009
I have started my third attempt to lose 100lbs. I don't have any drive what so ever but, I can't just sit around and get heavier so here I am. I eat all day and cry about it after. I just got braces to close the gaps in my teeth to help the way I feel about myself on the out side. I have also been taking my children to the library to help us all become more social so I can feel better about myself on the inside too. Send me a message if you would like to talk or become buddies. I would still love to make friends with a dependable and honest gal in Albany, OR/Salem or Keizer area. Wish me luck as I wish you all luck. SmileyFace!

My Goals:
I want to weigh 160 lbs. I love the way I look at this weight because I am healthy yet thick and curvy. :)

My Program:
I eat smaller portions and try to cut out ALL junk food and soda. I workout three times a week (You: Workout) I also walk 30 minutes 6 day a week.

Personal Information:
"I saw a quote and I think of it every time I want to give in to temptation of fast food or drive thru.
'If you are what you eat..... do you want to be cheap, fast and easy?
I think NOT."


Other Information:
I am in great need of a gal pal to talk to when I am feeling down or when they are feeling down. Also to be honest with eachother and encouraging when we make a mistake.

    well hey there cuz! i see you are attempting that ever so dreaded weight loss regimen. in support, i offer you the above sneakers. i have found that walking 2-3 miles a day has given me the best results. i know some days you would rather hack off a limb instead, but trust me it will help get you started.... it helps bring up your energy level as well. good luck and i love you!

    I homeschool 2, can't imagine 3!!! I barely have time now! What curriculum (if any) are you using?

    I just saw the comments on my pics ... I was letting my girls and a family friend (she was 15) give me highlights. They were using the tool that came with the kit and a crochet hook to pull my hair through the cap .. ouch!! lol

    I have been super busy this summer/fall. I have re-commited to losing weight and have been doing step every day. I started out at 10 min and am now up to 60 min. What's been going on with you?

    i am still just doing my own thing, watching what I eat & exercising.. I'm so done spending money on "the next big thing" I am trying to be happy with me & if I get smaller in the process "great"!

    I'm in paso robles, on the central coast. but I have been to Temecula it's lovely.
    We are in Wine Country. It's beautiful here.

    I will look into that YOUDIET, I am really proud of all my exercising I just hit 2500 minutes this week & it's not even over! but the food is a huge problem.
