Hi, I'm Mary - Wife, Mom (2 Teams), Working Girl (2 PT Jobs), and caregiver to disabled mom & dad in-law. Our family has been through a big transition over the past 2 years, changing jobs, moving across the State, taking on the ďcaregiverĒ roll with my husbandís parents. I'd gained over 10 lbs. in one year!! That added to the 25+ I'd gained over the past 5, cholesterol problems, high blood pressure. I knew I had to do something or my Doctor was going to put me on numerous meds. No Thanks!

So, with daughter Emma (SparkTeens member) as my running coach/partner, I started running for the first time in my life! at 49!! We are collecting t-shirts and race cards - We've done 3-5K's and one 2 miler this year so far. I'm still walking some, but my time is improving with each race. And my energy!!! Wow, running and eating right sure make a difference. I love Spark People. I love the trackers and finding new recipes to try. Iíve joined a couple of teams now, and that is helping to motivate me.

I still have a ways to go on my weight loss/fitness trek, but at almost 50, Iím in better health than Iíve been in 25 years! No goiní back now.
