I am a SAHM with 2 boys, ages 10 & 14. I have struggled with my weight most of my adult life. 3+ yrs ago, I quit smoking! WOO HOO! I have multiple sclerosis and was hospitalized last year. After the terrible drugs I was given I decided I HAD to do as much as I personally could for my health. I can't do anything about having MS but I can lower my BP to a healthy rate, and eat right, and exercise more. So I decided to try Herbalife products in December of 2006. I have done well on them but I am concerned that I will have a difficult time transitioning from the shakes to real food when the time comes. Plus, the products are too expensive for me personally. As I cannot currently work, I have guilt spending the money I do on the products I use.
So I am hoping SparkPeople can help my transition. I am very excited about this new turn of events!

Fitness Minutes: 2,008

My Goals:
Lose the last 30 lbs or so(hopefully by Feb. 2007), Become tone, reduce body fat.
Control my BP with my diet.
Enjoy the remaining years as healthy as I can be and be the best role model for my children as I can possibly be!

My Program:
1-Calorie goal 1000-1200
2- Strength training -3x's /wk (30 mins.)
3- Water aerobics- 2x's/wk
4-Cardio 45-60+ mins. 5-7 days /wk
I am very motivated with exercise but I do suffer from severe fatigue so I do the best I can. Exercise helps me fight the fatigue I experience.

My name is Lisa. I am from a small town in NE PA. I am happily married for 17+ yrs. We have 2 wonderful boys, 10 & 14. They are the center of our world but they are like night and day....completely opposite! They have very little in common, so yes, they argue ALOT!

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are truly important.

    Good morning partner,

    How are you today? I'm doing okay. I just had my oatmeal. I do so good in the morning with my diet. Then .... I just can't keep my mind set. I have not lost anything in a long time. I've probably gained. Oh well...

    Have a great day, Kathy

    Hey Partner,
    How was your week-end? Did you get your results today? I've been worried about you. I can only imagine how you feel. I just wanted you to know I'm thinking about you. Hope all is well. Kathy

    Hello Partner,
    Just popping to say hi & to remind you to do your injection(not that you need reminding any more.)
    I'm headed off to work soon. I am way to tired today .... I so want to jump in bed and rest. (or possibly sleep for the night) But trudge through the day I must do- we all have to do it sometimes. I'm sure you understand. Where do we find the strength sometimes?

    Have a great week-end. Kathy
