Hello!! My name is Mara and I have been with Sprak on and off for several years now. I've struggled with my weight for my w hole life and am still on the quest for a happier healthier better looking me. I get frusterated very easily so I'd love to have someone to lean on in hard time,s and would be more than happy to do the same for you! I have roughly 50lbs to lose to reach my final goal but I'm tackling it ten pounds at a time because who knows, it might only take 20 to be the size I'm happy with!

Member Since: 3/26/2007

Fitness Minutes: 4,499

My Goals:
I have two very active sons and need to keep up with them. I love my body more than ever after giving birth to my boys and have come to accept it as is, but still strive to push its limits. I love running and playing with my kids but with the extra weight, its hard for my body to want to do that. My goal is to lose osme extra pounds and tone up at the same time to be a happy healthy fit mama to my kids :)

My Program:
Right now I'm focusing on eating MORE as I realized part of my problem was not enough calories. Also I love to do the 30 Day Shred and the Biggest Loser Last Chance workout. I walk everywhere because I don't drive and try to get in about an hour or more of that each day.

Personal Information:
I am 28 years old, married for 6 years with a five and a half year old son and a 2 and a half year old son. I live in Ontario Canada, and I love to watch hockey and lacrosse. My husband and I both are avid readers.

    thanks for the comment- glad you are back. I am mainly just on for our new mommy group- probably will get back to major exercise and such in a couple of months. being a mom is awesome but feels completely exhausting right now- I know it will get better in a few weeks. hope you are doing well.

    Just stopping in to tell you hi! I miss all the communicating we used to do on the pregnancy teams. How are you doing? Hope all is well with you and your handsome little boys. They are both growing up so fast.

    Take care!

    Hey Mara,

    I hope all is going well for you! I can't believe how fas tthe time is going. My little one is going to be one the end of next month already. I haven't been able to get the scale to move in the right direction yet but I plan on starting Jillian's 30 day shred as soon as I get the DVD back from my sister.

    How are your boys doing? I see that Chace was diagnosed with allergies but at least you know now. How are you doing? I am hoping all is well for you and your family.

    Talk soon!
