I am Barbie, 44 year-old mommy to my young girls, Ava and Keira, and wife to my hubby Tad. I want to live a healthier lifestyle so that I can be alive to watch my girls have children. I am an older mommy, and it hurts me to think that my children might have to see my (or my hubby) pass away before they are adult. I want to work toward that goal! I have high cholesterol and am quite chubby, especially around the waist (hard to see in the photos - I picked the ones where I looked the nicest, as I often do!). I used to be athletic, and want to regain some of the pride that I had when i was younger and fitter. But most of all, I want to be a great example to my children, and an even more *active* mommy!

    Hi! You had sent me a SparkMessage last year when you joined. I live nearby in PA and saw your page when I did a zip code search here. You're doing great! I'm back again after being gone for many months, but I'm ready to jump back in. I looked at your interests--we have a lot in common. Have a great day--enjoy the nice weather!
