The road to a healthier ME!!

I am a 39 year old mother of 4. My 3 girls were born about 2 years apart from each other, so it made it very hard to lose the baby weight after each birth. I have a very hard time sticking to an exercise program, and my husband and I have a hard time eating healthy. My husband, however, is one of the lucky ones because he has a very high metabolism. I love the outdoors, and being active, but for some reason for the last 5 years, I just have not been as active as I used to be.

I love the outdoors, and being active, but for some reason for the last 5 years, I just have not been as active as I used to be.

Update: For the first couple years that I was a spark member, I just didn't find the time to make a healthy lifestyle my priority. I let life get in the way, and used it as an excuse. In August of 2010, I made the decision that it was high time that I made a healthy lifestyle a priority for me, not anybody else, but for ME!! I was able to lose 30 lbs within those first 4 months, then I maintained that weight for sometime. A plateau is what I found myself on, it was frustrating, but also an excuse to maybe let life try to take control again. However, I was able to maintain the loss for the most part and not gain much, but I also stopped being really active on Sparkpeople again. April 2011 rolled around and I realized that I was the only ONE who could make a positive change for me, so Sparkpeople here I come again. I became really active on the site again, and low and behold the scale is moving again. Even better though, I think is the fact that I have found a way to tone those flabby arms and legs of mine--Strength training, who knew? Sparkpeople of course and many others!! I have decided that for me to reach my goals, I need to find challenges here that I can do because too often if I try to do things on my own, I just fall flat on my face! The scale may not be moving much, but I think I am learning that a little here and a little there, may actually be a better way. Like the saying goes "Slow and steady wins the race". I really want the weight loss to be a lifestyle!!

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!

Again, Congratulations Beautiful!
