If it was easy it wouldn't mean as much! Go for it!

I'm 53 years old have been with SparkPeople for 2 years. I've learned over this time that I have more stamina than I ever thought possible to make so many healthy choices for myself. I've worked hard to raise my kids and now I want to focus on myself and getting healthy and strong.

I am married with 3 kids and have worked the overnight shift for 22 years. My kids are 20, 17 & 15 and it's all they've ever known. They've been busy with sports and school events and I've found that it's been so hard to keep up with everything for them and live healthy. Now that they are older and no longer dependent on me I've put myself first more often. I wish that I would have done it when they were younger so we could have some memories of me exercising with them instead of watching them. It's never too late!

Personal Information:
My name is Kelly.

My husband, Ed, and I have 3 kids, 2 cats and 2 dogs.
