My name is Tina and I am a wife and a mother of two wonderful girls (ages 23 and 19). I've been struggling with fitting in time for myself to take care of me. I'm always taking care of everyone else and putting myself last. And because of that, I have started to become unhealthy. I went through a cycle of P90X last summer and lost about 8 pounds, but then quickly gained it all back during the Winter months when I was busy with my girls and their gymnastics competitions. Over the past several years, I have become very disappointed in my body and am always saying negative things about the way I look. Not too long ago, a great Spark Friend told me that I should stay positive and to not say anything negative about myself. This was a real awakening for me. She was absolutely right. Since then, I have really been trying hard to stay positive and to be happy with the way I am, but I am still struggling. I feel like I need encouragement every day and I just don't get that from those around me. So my goal is to try harder for a healthy lifestyle, while staying positive and happy with who I am. :-)

Personal Information:
I am a 43 year old Mom of two daughters (Ages 23 and 19) and I live in Michigan. I've been married for 11years now and have a very busy lifestyle that makes it hard to exercise regularly, eat right, and get enough sleep. I'm really looking for some Spark Buddies that live in Michigan (with similar goals) that are interested in working together on our goals.
