The time is NOW!

I am a 30-something working mom and wife. I have a 65 mile commute to work (1 way), and spend a lot of time in my car. I have allowed my diet to reach an all time low. I am looking for a healthy lifestyle that I can teach my children, so they hopefully won't struggle with weight issues as adults. More to come!

10/30/11 - This day has been one of those impossible days. My eldest son has Asperger Syndrome. We have our good days, and we have days like today. I have been pushed to my limits. But, through all of this, I did not cheat. Instead I went for a long walk, got a big hug from my husband, and I did a lot of deep breathing.

You may wonder why I am sharing this in my intro text. Honestly, it is because joining Spark People has helped me cope with days like today. I have found friends who understand the challenges of raising a child with AS. I have learned healthy ways to cope with stress. I have made the decision to change my life. I'm not on a diet. This is forever, and forever includes days like today. Today, I chose not to run to food for comfort. Today, thanks in part to Spark People... I chose me.
