Finding my way back...

First and foremost- you have to be able to enjoy life! I will not "give up" food groups. I cannot imagine life without certain foods and imagining that life makes me want to cry. That diet isn't gonna work! Enter "Spark"..

I am a mother to three wonderful kids. As we mothers know, our bodies take a beating during pregnancy. Sadly, I am one who has never been the same since. I took the backseat for many years.

I am a mother to three wonderful kids. As we mothers know, our bodies take a beating during pregnancy. Sadly, I am one who has never been the same since. I took the backseat for many years.

I have tried every FAD diet under the sun and finally decided that I needed something REAL. Something that was more realistic. I needed something that would allow me to make one meal a night and fulfill my desire for my kids to be healthy as well as myself. No more cutting out food groups.

I joined spark recently in hopes to find that life long "partner" if you will. I would like to lost around 60 pounds for sure. Of course more would be nice, but "more" seems like a mountain at this point. My doctor would like to see me lose about 90 pounds...that seems very overwhelming!

Thanks for checking out my page...I hope to become good at nutrition, excercise and blogging while I am here!

Member Since: 6/2/2011

SparkPoints: 7,590

Fitness Minutes: 5,307

My Goals:
My goal is to overcome the backsliding that I inevitably experienced between 4-6 months in to my exercise/eating better plan. It's almost as though I sabotage myself when I am close to first goals.

My Program:
Trying to find the balance!
Cardio 3x a week
Strength Training 2x a week.

Lots of veggies, lean meats, fruits, whole grains, healthy fats like nuts, olive oils.

Most importantly- NO DEPRIVATION!

Personal Information:
I am a mom and wife, I work full time outside of the home, I am finishing up a degree and trying to get healthy. I have let my stress get the best of me...I ATE MY EMOTIONS! no joke...I ate to celebrate, I ate to mourn, I ate to cheer up, I ate because I was bored. What a difficult cycle to break!

Other Information:
I feel like there is a skinny girl inside me just screaming to get out...especially since I LOVE clothes and shoes that are targeted for that body type.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I figured I'd get a bit of support here, the rest of our family and friends think it's absolutely crazy. And FI loves the t-shirt idea. I may have to do it!

Hope all is going well, and again, thanks for the support!

Hi! I'm a mom too so I know what you mean about the beating our bodies take, and then you kind of do everything for your kids and forget yourself for a while. I'm sure you've found that when you take care of you, everyone in the family is better for it.

Congrats on being sparkler of the week!
