As happens to many, I have fallen off the healthy lifestyle bandwagon more times than I care to count. But this time I am more determined than ever before and am changing the way I live to be what I want it to be rather than what it has been for the last 25 years. This is definitely a life journey that has roadblocks and setbacks. But, I refuse to let the idea of permanent obesity rule me.... I am loving my new more-active lifestyle of exercising nearly every day and eating to live, rather than living to eat. I have a good start behind me and know that I have a long way to go, but I feel better and am happier than I have been in a long time. I look forward to seeing how far I can go!!!!

My Goals:
My main goal is to stay healthy and fit into the kinds of clothing that I like. However, I also want to be entergetic and active as well as a good role model for my three daughters.

My Program:
My program involved exercise at least 6 days per week. I am currently running and/or walking 4 miles, 3 X/week , I lift weights and then walk 2-3 miles, 3X/week. Now, due to the late sunrise, I am doing it all on treadmills at our Local YMCA. I am also eating eating a balanced diet with focus on fruits and vegetables. I allow myself my favorite foods, but in moderation.

Personal Information:
I am from upstate New York and have three very active, athletic daughters who run track and play soccer. My husband is a weight-lifter /former semi-pro football player who stays naturally in shape.

Other Information:
I spend most of my time supporting my children's athletic goals and helping them to reach them. I am just now starting to focus a bit more on myself.

    Hi, I just got a nike fuel band. I realized I dont have any facebook friends to compete with because none of them have a nike fuel band so I figured I would look around sparkpeople and see if I could find some competition. Anyway, I searched for nike fuel band on the spark people search and saw your post and was wondering if you were interested. If so a link to my facebook profile is below.

    Hope to hear from you
