Hi, I've been a member of the team for about a week or so, but just realized I never introduced myself.
I'm Penny. I'm a single mom of 3. I live just north of Dallas, TX.
My oldest is a 14 year old girl. She's getting ready to go into 9th grade. She was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid a year ago, and has about 50 pounds to lose.
My middle child is an 11 year old girl. She's entering 6th grade. Her weight is fine, but she's been on antidepressants for about a year and half now. She's also severely dyslexic and can barely read at a 3rd grade level.
My youngest is a 9 year old boy. He's entering 4th grade. Typical, active 9 year old boy. Except about 9 months ago he started getting migraines. Being active in the heat seems to be one of his major triggers.
As for me, I've been a mostly inactive member of Sparkpeople for years. I've been active again this last month. In that time I've gone from being able to exercise 5 minutes at a time to up to 30. I'm also hypothyroid like my oldest.
