I'm 56 years old have been with SparkPeople for nearly 5 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 am married with 3 kids and have worked the overnight shift for 25 years. My kids are 22, 20 & 18 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.

I've recently finished my training to become a Certified Health Coach with Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I am learning a ton of new things about healthy living and eating. I am looking forward to a new career to spread my healthy lifestyle to new people.

My Goals:
1. Hoping to stay within 5 pounds of my goal weight.

Personal Information:
My name is Kelly.
I'm from Omaha, NE.
My husband, Ed, and I have 3 kids, 2 cats and 2 dogs.
I work the 3rd shift as a pharmacist.
I love to read and find that it's hard to balance my love of reading with my need for exercise. Since I work the night shift I have had trouble fitting exercise into my life on the days that I have to work and life interferes.

    You do deserve the best. Even though nothing in this world is handed to you, if you really want to reach your destination, push through all challenges and your success will be waiting on the other side. Allison Maslan
