September 2006- same weight now (the kids are now 10 and 13!!)
My Babies; Julianne, Daniel, Scout, and Homer
I am a 43 year old mother, wife, and teacher who is looking to improve her health and stamina! I am tired of being tired!
Eat better, feel better, look better, BE better!
track my food, water, and exercise.
I walk to dog daily, use the Wii which gives me time with the kids, and swimming at my sisters. My strength training has been 'blah' so I am getting back into it and need to get back to some more workout programs. I bought a jump rope; just have to be brave enough to try it again when no one is around. Also, I want to get the bike back out and hope the tire doesn't go flat; lol.
My name is Annabelle and I am from the Buffalo, NY area.
My daily quote:
God, Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I can not change, to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the Difference
Believe in yourself, believe that you can accomplish your goals, believe nothing can stop you, and if you believe in yourself others will believe in you too! (borrowed from another Sparker, LOVE IT)

I have spent the past 9 months struggling with my food and not working out enough. I gained 30 lbs. back since May 2012. But, I am finally back on track after trying to re-start a couple times. I have a real problem with sugar. It is definitely a chemical reaction in my brain that gets triggered when I eat sugary sweets. I get on a cycle of eating sweets and carbs and never get satisfied. My brain tells me to keep eating them when I know they are bad for me and I want to resist.
Somehow, I have made my way out of the "sugar fog" and I am eating healthy again. It took the fear of gaining all the weight back to get me to try just one day without the sugar. Getting started is the hardest part for me.
I am feeling much better now and I am moving forward and focusing on losing 70 lbs. in the next year to hit my goal of losing 120 lbs. total.
Let's keep in touch and get this weight off! Hugs.
