Taking Charge of my Destiny

My whole life I have struggled with my weight and in-turn, have unfortunately battled a vicious cycle of yo-yo dieting. I must say, it's frutrating. There was a time in my life when I felt completely in control of my weight. I had made some some extremely positive changes by working with a personal trainer and nutritionist. I found that reporting to my support team on a weekly basis really held me accountable and kept me on track knowing they would see any slip ups I had along the way. Now ...
My whole life I have struggled with my weight and in-turn, have unfortunately battled a vicious cycle of yo-yo dieting. I must say, it's frutrating. There was a time in my life when I felt completely in control of my weight. I had made some some extremely positive changes by working with a personal trainer and nutritionist. I found that reporting to my support team on a weekly basis really held me accountable and kept me on track knowing they would see any slip ups I had along the way. Now that I am at this on my own again I realize that I need a strong support system to help me achieve my goals.

Almost 4 years ago now, my husband and I officially embarked on the journey of parenthood and we now have two beautiful children in our lives. They are my everything and I know I need to get back on track and make some positive changes to not only rid myself of the baby weight I put on while carrying them both, but become healthy again so that I can help to ensure I am around for a full lifetime. There are so many illnesses that come along with being overweight and now that I'm in my 30's and am much more aware of this, I know in my heart that I have to do this not only for myself but for my family as well.

I am a full-time working mom and truthfully, I always feel completely stressed out and guilty that I have to leave my kids every day. I come home and take care of everyone BUT me and that needs to change. I feeling so completely insecure with myself lately and feel so depressed and embarrassed about the way that I look so I'm turning to Spark people for support, motivation and help to reach my goals!
