Here we go!

I'm 37 and am tired of being frustrated about my weight. I joined SparkPeople six (!) years ago, but never got motivated enough to really try it out. This time I'm more determined to give the effort needed.

My biggest obstacles are my work and family. I'm in the Navy, working on a Master's degree in a 1 year program, and often work long days (especially considering commuting time), leaving me very little time with my husband and two kids. Spending time with them becomes the priority over getting a workout in. I need to figure out how to balance it all so that I can be happier with "me".

Wecome back to SP! emoticon Also, thank you for your service!
I read your comment on Sizing in Biggest Loser - I left you a comment there. I see you have 2 children and between your day's work and your children you have very little time to exercise. I applaud you on having your priorities straight. However, I'm wondering if you might incorporate your exercise into the time spent with your kids. Can you play some sports/games with them that would get everybody moving - bike riding, hoops, etc? emoticon emoticon
Of course, I don't know the ages of your children and this might impact this idea - LOL.
Just an idea . . .
Good luck to you! emoticon
