Shared Food Tracker
I am 33 years old, am married, have a 3 year old daughter and a 1 year old son. I have struggled with my weight since I was about 12.
Now that I am a mom, I really want to get my eating under control, and exercise regularly. I want to feel good about myself, teach my children healthy habits, and I want to have the energy to keep up with them. I don't want to be a lazy mom.
I lost 51 lbs, but recently I gained back about 15. I'm going to get back on track in 2015!!

I am SOOOO glad that I've joined SparkPeople. It is the best tool I've found for getting motivated and staying on track. I've met some great friends here, and look forward to meeting more.
I want to:
-feel more energetic
-enjoy the taste of healthy foods
-not hate pictures of myself
-be more kind to myself
I'm not really following a particular program. Doing my best to exercise at least every 2nd day and to track my food most days. I refuse to give up ANY foods altogether.
I completed the couch to 5k running program and have been enjoying getting out for runs.
I am 33 years old, married, and live in PEI, Canada.
"Such a Pretty Fat" by Jen Lancaster is a great chic lit book for any women trying to lose weight. It made me laugh out loud. :)
