Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
My name is Stacy and I am a 37 year old living with my husband and two daughters in Northern Nebraska. I started on Spark a couple of years ago and I am very excited about this journey of living a healthy life. It is a constant battle for me because everyone in my family is very obese with significant health problems so I have to be very careful with what I eat and I am always having to push myself to go and exercise.
A few years ago I became pregnant with our second child. It was a difficult pregnancy with being in and out of the hospital during the first half and having high blood pressure and gaining too much weight during the second half. Unfortunately I put on 65 pounds with this pregnancy. I've taken off 50 but I still have a long way to go. I'm trying to balance having a 3 year old, a seven year old and a husband who is an Elementary Principal and is not home a lot. If anyone has any tips or suggestion. ns, drop me a line! Good luck to all of you on your own journeys!
*Total I'm looking to lose around 75-80 lbs.

My name is Stacy and I live with my husband, 7 year old daugher and 3 year old daughter in a small town in Nebraska.
I'm really trying to get in better physical shape for a number of reasons.
1. I want to be able to play with my children and teach them that it's not just about looking a certain way or the number on the scale but about being completely healthy inside and out.
2. My family is all very obese and has severe health problems because of it so I'm trying to do things differently so that I can be healthy for a long time to come.

Happy Birthday, DONE GIRL
In Capricorn, the Sun is strongly goal-directed and persistent. Ambitious, serious and dedicated to duty, life is difficult, but you are the type of person who will triumph and achieve success. Your aptitude to persevere, no matter how difficult the road, sets you apart from most of your peers. You are anxious to climb the ladder of fortune, and you can usually reach your goals because of your sense of the right way of doing everything. Your patience is never ending.
The Capricorn child has a hard life and is given a lot of responsibility early on and is never able to be "just a silly kid." She is "old when young" but know she will stay young when old. Capricorn gets along well with Virgo, Pisces, Taurus, Cancer and sometimes Scorpio, but she will not allow Scorpio to run her life, so that can be an issue. She can have problems with headaches from stress and trouble with her knees.
You are a very thoughtful and serious person, thinking everything through carefully before you set off in any direction. You possess excellent reasoning skills, and you can be counted on to select options that are both practical and that provide an economic advantage. Your attitude is conservative; conservative with time, money, and all other resources. Your philosophy is waste not, want not. You are also likely to be conservative in your political and social attitudes, although your age, upbringing, and education perspectives may influence this somewhat.
You are especially well suited to business and government because of your sense of organization and structure. You combine a talent for management with an ability to carry out instructions with care. You are the quintessential careerist, taking job and duties very seriously. Therefore, you are never one to shirk responsibility and you have very little use for those that do. That which matters most to you is your public image. You show your best face to the public. You enjoy being in a position of power and authority, although you are not very much inclined to enjoy the limelight. You may prefer instead to run your business from an isolated perspective. You are loyal and dedicated, and you demand utter loyalty and dedication from subordinates. Advancing up the ladder of success is all important. You are unconcerned about, sometimes even ruthless toward, those getting in your path as you move upward.
You don't handle chaotic situations very well. You may need to develop the ability to lighten up a little and not take life, and everything else so seriously. Although you are self-disciplined, responsible, and practical, at times you can wallow in self-pity. It's essential for you to remember that your most important asset is self-esteem, and you should never devalue this. Rigidity and fear of change may be your biggest stumbling block.
Sober and reserved in your dealings with others, it takes you a good while to warm up enough to anyone to be considered a close friend. Yet once you do, you are a very caring, reliable, and most steadfast ally. Your private side is different from your public side. In private you are shy and sensitive. The harshness of your public image disappears. Emotionally demanding relationships are very difficult. Love relationships may be more like business relationships, and you are unsure of yourself in most intimate situations.
