I'm a work in progress

I'm a mom to three kids: 17 yr old identical twin girls and an 11 yr old boy with PDD-NOS ("mild autism" for the layman). I'm also wife to a shiftworker. I'm lucky to have a job that I enjoy - even though it means I'm on my butt all day.

I've always been a "chunky" person, ever since I was young - at least near the top of my BMI. Now, I've entered into the obese category. Time is passing: I'm getting older and my metabolism doesn't offer any kindness.

I'd like to be able to get my act together and lose 40-60 lbs, and keep it off. However, in the meantime, life goes on, and while I'm not satisfied with my fat self, I'm not going to let it ruin my self-image.

Member Since: 6/3/2013

SparkPoints: 36,184

Fitness Minutes: 10,506

My Goals:
- to meet my weekly exercise goals
- to stop being concerned about what other people think
- to be a fantastic mother
- to be more receiving of compliments, rather than watering them down
- to be less critical of myself
- to lose weight (my ideal is to fit into the healthy BMI range)

My Program:
Weekly exercise goals:
- cardio (usually elliptical) at least 3 sessions for 45 min each, or the equivalent
- 2 sessions of strength training
- 30 "V-ups" 4 times a week, plus some other ab work

Personal Information:
My most important job is raising my three children to become productive members of society. I'm confident my daughters are well on their way, but I have big worries about my son. He just lacks some of the necessary skills, but I vow never to give up helping him to do for himself.

Other Information:
I am a frequent movie goer, preferring comedy and drama. I am an avid reader: magazines, non-fiction books, and of course, autism related material.
I love the saying "fall down 7 times, get up 8"- and that's kind of my story.

I firmly believe that you teach people how to treat you. I've had to set up some pretty tough boundaries in order to take care of my emotional self, but it has been very beneficial in the longer term. I am not a doormat!
