I am a stay at home mom that is on depression drugs that have caused major weight gain. I have never had to try to loose weight in my life until after having my 3rd child & starting the medication. I was always active in high school & was always told that I was too skinny, even though I ate constantly. I believe that people probably thought I was anorexic now that I look back on it. They would be eating something & I wouldn't be hungry & they would try to put food in my mouth. I hated that. I wasn't hungry & I ALWAYS ate when I was hungry. I just never ate large portions at each sitting. I wish I could get the old me back. At least part of me anyway. :(

Fitness Minutes: 1,382

My Goals:
I would like to be able to loose 10 pounds by March13th which is when I go to San Antonio, TX for training with EF Foundation for Foreign Study.


My Program:
I am trying to drink plenty of water throughout the day instead of soda & sugary coffee with cream. Trying to eat better & stay away from eating out as much as possible. This is usually just a treat for the entire family not something we do on a daily or evern weekly basis.



Personal Information:
I am from Las Vegas, NV. I have lived here for almost 10 years. I have 3 children - 20-12 & 7 years of age. 1 daughter (oldest) & 2 boys. For the most part they are great kids!


Other Information:
I like to read, crochet, & knit & do basic crafting projects. I have a black lab mix & 2 house cats. I have my husbands father living in my home for the last 18 years & my husbands mother moved in last March after a car accident. They have been divorced for over 20 years. Luckily they don't fight constantly. :)

    Hey, welcome to Spark!
    I just joined 6 weeks ago myself, and am loving it. And yes, it's hard. LOL!
    I also deal with depression, but bought a SAD lamp and up here in the Yukon, we have so little light in the winter, it's murderous. Anyway...you may find your depression lifts a little one you get exercising - I did.
    Again, welcome - and keep in touch!
