Hi! I'm Lori and I'm a 37 year old stay at home housewife and mom to a 8 year old girl and 6 year old boy. I'm tired of sitting around waiting for my life to belong to me. I'm tired of wanting to change and doing nothing. I joined Babyfit, Spark's "sister" when my son was 4 months old and had great results. After I stopped nursing him, I joined Spark and had great results yet again, but after a month and a half just quit. Why? I knew that exercising, getting great motivation and inspiration from my Spark community and eating right worked. This time, I'm here to stay. This is my life and I'm going to live it the way I want to, healthier. I started out at 240 pounds and lost 14 pounds with Spark in Spring of 12', gained back 4 and started this time at 230. My goal is to get to the same weight as my husband at 145 and to be healthier, play with my children without getting tired, wear knee socks and fit into my wedding ring again. I look forward to meeting new people who are also on various parts of their journey to being fit.

I had a lot of success three years ago when I was working hard and trying. Then I let something get me down and I stopped. I am back now and ready to never let anyone or anything get me down. I can do this!

I am now at 240.2 lbs and have fallen into an unhealthy lifestyle. I refuse to give up and am now working harder than ever to improve my body, health, and mindset about life.

    It's a gorgeous sunny day here. One of the grandsons is spending time with us this week. Grandad just took him to the pet store to buy food and other goodies for the dogs. I'm redoing my craft room today so I can get started on another afghan.

    I regret not so much the choices that I make, but the choices that I don’t; not so much the things that I’ve done, but the things I haven’t done. Dr. Eric Pearl
