I have tons of weight to lose and an ankle that reminds me every single day!

I am now a 38 year-old mother of 3. I have limited time and a baby that hasn't slept through the night since he was born last summer. I have a high-stress job and little free time. With all that said...if I don't lose weight, I will have to have surgery on my foot. I refuse. I am looking for a Sparker who can relate to being busy, having an injury and NEEDS to lose weight.
I have been up and down since joining Sparkpeople ages ago. Now that I know that I am done having babies...my body ...

I have been up and down since joining Sparkpeople ages ago. Now that I know that I am done having babies...my body is all MINE! It's time to take it back! Who's with me!????
My interests vary but I can sum up my life as one in desperate need of balance.
I like movies, action-packed tv shows, alternative medicine, alternative religion, self-help babble and meditation.
I like the escape of some tv shows as my attention span won't support reading. I know that sounds ignorant, but it's true!
What am I doing at any given time:
Trying to alleviate stress, taking care of 3 kids (13, 10 and 1), juggling work and home and trying to be a good egg.
What am I watching at any given time:
The Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy, Orange is the New Black, Any Documentaries, Dr. Phil and Crime Documentaries



I am a 34 year-old single mother of two children. I have a high-stress job and have often neglected my health. I know that I can lose weight as I have done it before. I need help with sticking to a healthy diet. I am ready for the challenge.

UPDATE! I am engaged! My sweetheart proposed on my birthday, 2/9/08!

UPDATE to UPDATE! I am married! I married my hubby on 8/22/10. I gained a little weight during the honeymoon but it was worth every calorie!

October 19th, 2008: Ok, stakes are higher now! I just got invited to my 15 year high school reunion. There is no way I am going there looking like a cow! I was 185 when I graduated and I will return to that weight by May. I got 6 months. 6 months- 45 pounds, I can do this!!!!!!!!!!

Update to Update the Update!
I am a 35 year-old married mommy who has become a runner...Aborigine style!

Totally Up to Date:
I am now 37, have three children and a husband. 2013 was a tough year with a new baby, new house, new ailments and new realizations. I have to make 2014 about ME! I plan to starting NOW!

I love this time of year but the parties can sabotage us-- I always offer to bring a healthier food even if it is just a fruit bowl or veggie platter... I like to eat veggies with homemade hummus for a change. And remember to drink drink drink your water!!

Hang in there!
