I am a 34 yr old mother of 2 sons and wife of 13 years. I lead a very busy life that is split between raising my children, working, being a supportive firefighter's wife, serving my church home, and connecting with friends and family.

I enjoy reading, photography, shopping and spending time with my family and friends.

Weight Loss Journey:

With the birth of my youngest child in summer 05, I was getting really close to the 200 lb mark. Lost 40lbs quickly after he was born and then got to 145 lbs for my sister's wedding in October 2006. Hovered between 145-150 for the next 2 1/2 years. I'm 5'2, so I'm considered petite, but I'm very curvy.

Began SP in January 2009 to lose the last 10-15 lbs. and put me at my "ideal weight of 130-135. Now that I have experienced first hand success with Spark People, my goals are higher, but well within reach. I struggle most with staying motivated , feeling guilty about poor eating choices, and letting my sweet tooth get the best of me.

I work out 3-4 times a week, and have gotten serious about my calorie intake each day. I want to acheive my personal weight loss goals and maintain it for the remainder of my life. Now that I KNOW it's possible for me to break through the plateau I've hit time and time again, I'm not only a believer in Spark People.....I'm a LIFER!

    I hope you had a good laugh :^) Laughter is a great way to work those ab muscles. . .

    I figure it's better to laugh at myself with others then to feel sorry for myself and cry alone. . .

    LOVE IT!!! Love the quote about life being too short to wear ugly shoes. I whole-heartedly agree!
