Starting My Journey to a Healthier Me

I am a 38 yr old mother of 5. I started Spark on 3/12/2010, but soon after I found out I was pregnant. I had my last baby 2/14/2011. I became serious about my weight and health again on 9/20/2011 when I was about 30 - 40 lbs over weight. This was huge for me since I have always been grossly under weight (under 90 lbs until age 30) and trying really hard to gain weight. Now I'm standing on the other side looking for some middle ground. I don't want to be super skinny like I was before, but ...

Now I'm standing on the other side looking for some middle ground. I don't want to be super skinny like I was before, but my ideal weight for my height of 4' 11 (about 100 - 115lbs) would be great! Then I would like to maintain at a healthy weight and continue in a healthy lifestyle.

Fitness Minutes: 1,660

My Goals:
Is to get to my ideal weight with a toned up body.

Another important goal is to eat right and stay healthy.

My ideal weight at 4'11 would be about 100 - 115 lbs.

My Program:
I tried the 17 Day Diet and it did not work for me. I am now on Alli as of 4/14/13. So far I have lost 2 lbs in one day.

I have started eating healthier and I am using the Spark nutrition tracker to keep track of how many calories, carbs, fat, and protein I am consuming.

I have a copy of the book, "The Calorie King" which I use to know what I should and shouldn't be eating.

I have also joined a gym and will be doing cardio workouts and strength training. I will be keeping track of this using the Spark Fitness tracker.

Personal Information:
My name is Jennifer. I am originally from South FL, but moved up North in 2008 and am currently living in South Central PA.

I am married to my best friend and we have 5 wonderful children together.

After five kids I have body parts sagging I didn't even know could sag.

I also had gestational diabetes with some of my pregancies and with this last one my doctor told me that due to my family history (on both sides) and how high and hard to control (very high dosages of insulin) my numbers were, I am at a very high risk of getting type 2 diabetes. She also has concerns of high blood pressure and heart conditions in my future.

So it is very important I take control of my health now before it's too late.

Other Information:
Any Anytime Fitness gym members here who would like a workout buddy??? I would love to find someone to work out with in the Western MD/ South Central PA area.

I joined Spark in March of 2010 for support. I also joined Curves and was determined to lose weight and get in shape. Then I found out I was pregnant with baby number five.

So here I go again. This time I am at a Anytime Fitness (what a difference!!!) and even more determined to meet my goals. I would love to find a work out buddy though.
