Hi, I have two beautiful babies, Adam who is 3 and Olivia who is 9 months old. I'm mostly a SAHM working every other Saturday. I'm here to try and get some support from other Moms who just get it. I don't have really anyone to support me in a healthy lifestyle besides my husband who is great but every now and then I look for another womans/mom's perspective on things. I'm looking forward to getting some good advice on anything from getting out of my frumpy clothes when it's tempting to just throw my hands up and accept the frump to saving room on my plate for my toddlers leftovers. Its a weird spectrum but I think you ladies know what I mean. Thanks for reading.

Hi! I'm Kathleen. I have a spectacular 2 yr old little boy, Nathan. I'm a nanny and we love to spend our family time swimming, playing various sports and going on fun day trips. Nate loves all things boy: trucks, trains, and sports. We recently went to A Day Out With Thomas and he had a blast. I've been trying to get healthy and lose weight so I can keep up with him. I'd like to lose as much weight as I can before trying to conceive again. My husband and i have been walking 2 miles at least 3 days a week. I'm looking forward to getting to know some of you and helping each other succeed!

Hello! I'm Heidi~ Mom to a wild HIGHLY active 3.5 year old boy and an extremely calm 9 month old. I'm also going back to school for my nursing degree. Both are in daycare now but will be pulled out later this spring because I'll be going to school full time and taking time off to do that and raise them! I'm terrifed and excited for that!
I've very lucky, my two kids will eat anything..it's my husband and I that have the awful eating habits.

Hello all. I am a 26 yr old parent of one wonderful soon to be 3 yr old toddler that is classified as being in preschool on ABCmouse.com. she is very smart and accelerated for her age. she has been in school since she was 1.5 yrs old. I am a firm believer in the leapfrog toys and in schooling when the child shows interest or smarts to do so. well thats about it about us so off i go to learn more helpful tips to eating right and catering to her needs and also prepping for starting homeschooling in a few years.

My son name is Miles, he is one years old and about to turn two in April. We were just told that he is high functioning autistic and we have therapies once a week with him. He is full of so much energy it is so hard to keep up with him.

Now, I am pregnant with a second little boy named Mason. He is due on June 11, 2015. I can't wait to meet him.

Hi, everyone!
My name is Dawn. I am 35 year old working mom. My husband and I have a very active 3 year old daughter. I am working hard to get back into pre-pregnancy shape again. I lost most of it after having my daughter and then gained about 10lbs of it back in the last year due to a variety of stresses (husband lost his job, a family illness, etc.) Now I am ready to refocus on myself again.

I think the thing that I struggle the most with is finding the time to exercise in a meaningful way. I go for walks with my daughter but she is of the age where she doesn't want to be a in a stroller anymore and I can't keep a good pace or I would leave her in the dust. I have been trying to work out at night after I put her to bed but honestly there are some nights when I am just too tired between working all day, taking care of the house, and taking care of our daughter. I have been forcing myself to be more consistent and can't wait to reap the rewards!

Looking forward to meeting you all!

Hi everyone. My name is Catherine and my husband and I have one very busy four year old son. I am hoping to get back into pre-pregnancy shape and looking for a great spark team to be a part of. We just moved to the arctic for my work last year and are loving it here. It certainly presents some challenges and some very different scenarios than life down south (as in taking your pre-schooler by quad to daycare instead of using a vehicle or being stuck inside for days at a time during a blizzard). I am very excited to meet you all.

Hi! My name is April. I'm a mom of two beautiful girls Alyssa (16 months) and Emma (3 1/2 yrs). I also work full time as a LPN. I have always struggled with my weight, have flipped flopped from weightwatchers to here numerous times usually giving up.

Hi all! My name is Jo. My son, Gavin, just turned 2 in December. We're planning on homeschooling, because the American school curriculum leaves something to be desired.

I have tried for three years to get my health on track and never been very successful. I am hopeful that this time is different, and I am determined to make it so. :)

Hi! I'm Tamara (or Tam) and I have one daughter, Lillie, who is currently in love with Doc McStuffins, catching grasshoppers & trying to feed them cookies (I don't even know), and growing up way too fast. I'm sure you can relate emoticon
We live in Texas with my husband who recently started his own business and the added stress to my normal routine has certainly caused an increase in my weight - I'm trying to get it in check for not only myself but to set a good example for my daughter. I look forward to being a part of this team!

My name is Monette. I've been feeling overwhelmed with work, kids (Braeden 6 and Alayna 3) and the house. I've have not been working out. Then my blood pressure spiked for two weeks and I realized I HAVE to get back on track. SO I'm back. I'm trying to get a walk in at lunch every day and when i'm lucky I get the kids out also later in the evening. emoticon

Hi! My name is Kim. I am 32 years old and have a 2.5 year old son, Connor. I have totally let myself go since having C-man. I'm so desperate to get healthy and feel better about myself, but I'm so far down in this rut, I'm having a hard time getting out. Hopefully, this will help me.

Hello! I'm Tara. I'm 30 years old. I am a stay at home mom to 3 girls- K is 5 and is starting kindergarten, A is almost 4 and will be starting her 2nd year of preschool and V is 2 months. I am not looking to lose weight right now, as I am breastfeeding, but I am trying to clean up my diet and eliminate sugar and wheat (taking out wheat is to see if it is triggering my migraines).

Hi! I a mother of two girls under 3 years. I don't really have a weight goal than a shape goal, I'm pretty much close to the weight I want to be but I got more fat than muscle compared to the time before the kids. So my aim is to shape up and get even more fit that I used to be.

My best motivational buddies are my SO and my dog. My SO gives me time to workout and the pup keeps me company.

Ps. English isn't my native language so excuse my grammar.

Hello! I am in my upper 30's and have a 2 year old son. I have at least 10 more pounds to lose and I find Sparkpeople to be a great motivator...although I'm currently kind of 'stuck' in the weight loss battle. I am hoping this group is fairly active and can keep me motivated!

Hello everyone! I'm a 29 year old woman who has been married for 10 years. We have been blessed with 2 children, a 9 year old son and a 1 year old daughter. I've always been on the "chunky" side, but after giving birth to my son, I gained a lot of weight. It wasn't until after giving birth to my daughter that I weighed my heaviest...220 lbs. I was shocked that I had allowed myself to get like this. Shocked and disgusted. I've now lost 15 lbs, but I know that I have a very long road ahead of me. Can't wait to meet you all!

Wow, where to start...
I'm happy to be a part of a team that understands what it is like to juggle young ones and try to work toward personal goals as well. My LO is Danny and he's 2, I also have a 6 yo girl and 8 yo boy who make life even more exciting. Our family has fallen into the TV and computer trap where everyone seems glued to a screen all the time. I know this isn't healthy for little bodies and little brains but sometimes I have to admit I enjoy the quiet and calm that it can bring.

As for me, I'm a stay at home mom and a writer. I'm currently working toward the completion of my first novel and hope to talk to publishers before the end of the year. I like working in the yard (when the little ones let me), music, books, and really awesome movies.

I've been a member of Sparkpeople for a long time but only recently jumped back into being active when my weight started creeping up and out of control.

I look forward to getting to know you all!

Progress, not perfection!

Good Morning! I joined this team a while ago but as life would have it, I just dropped out of spark for a while due to, dare I say it?...no time! Well, as always, we need to make time. I am turning 40 this year and I'm not real happy with how I'm feeling. The Spark community has always helped me achieve my health goals by holding me accountable, so help me out folks!

I have an amazing son, Lennon, who will be 4 this summer, and a stepdaughter, Anna, about to turn 14. We have made the family decision to start camping this year and I just want to be in better overall shape to enjoy everything with the entire family. I could stand to lose 10-12 lbs, but mostly it is about feeling stronger and healthier. My biggest problem is time. I work full time, as does my husband, the 2 kids, the dog, and you know, LIFE!! LOL!

I love the outdoors, music and theatre, and watching my son grow and learn.

I look forward to getting to know many of you and helping to support you in your goals as well. emoticon

Hello, Just joined the team. My LO is Amelia and she turned two a couple of weeks ago. I'm loving the challenges of being a mum and I can't believe how busy life is getting!

Amelia does gymnastics and swimming and at the end of this month she is going to her first playgroup session! I do martial arts twice a week and like to run and do Pilates too.

Hi, My name is Leanna. I'm 32 years old and have a vivacious 3 year old girl named Ella(and a 10 month old boy named Ethan). I'm a nurse but stopped working about 5 years ago due to autoimmune health problem with lots of joint and muscle pain. That's how I gained my weight-going from being a runner to 10 years ago, being inactive and sick all the time. My pregnancies have helped me go into remission and I'm taking advantage of that to workout and get myself back to healthy! I'm an author now and to stay active, also a dog walker-mandatory workouts! :) Life is crazy busy with 2 kids and work but I know the healthier I get and the lighter I get....lol...the better I can conquer the day and be a good role model for my kids health! Ella is a witty, active, and sweet little girl who is always ready to dance, run, and cook! Good opportunities for me to teach her good things about food and exercise!

I can do this!

Hey, my name is Crystal and I'll be 27 next month. I have a 4yr old daughter named Hayden. She loves all animals especially dogs, horses, and zebras. She is in gymnastics, learning to read and write, and loves playing dress up with her princess wardrobe we made her for her birthday in December. Life can be very hectic, especially being a single mom, but I'm working hard to set a good example for my daughter by living a healthier and more active lifestyle. Friend me, I could always use motivation and would love to motivate ya'll as well!

Hi! My name is Kathy. I'm 29, and have always been overweight. A few years back, I found spark. Lost 50 pounds. Ran a 5K. And was insanely confident. Fast forward to now, I have 2 amazing kids, and I've gained more than 50 pounds back in the process.

I'm a SAHM of 2 boys. Carter will be 3 in March. He is very sweet, loves superheroes, cars, and trains, and will talk your ear off. Drew turned 1 in November. He loves Mickey Mouse, shoes, and anything his brother is playing.

Friend me and let's keep each other motivated!

Hello Team!
My name is Rachael, and I am 29 years old and live in North Carolina. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have 2 kids, Ava (4 yrs...turning 5 in April!) and Josh (3 yrs). I am a Registered Nurse and work full time in the ICU at our local hospital.
My weight loss goal is about 30 pounds, 35-40 would be even better! I have slowly been gaining weight since having Josh in 2010, and after multiple unsuccessful attempts at losing it I am praying that this time I can keep myself on track. My husband and I going to do a low carb diet and keep active -- we both have weight to shed! I'm thankful I have him for support and motivation.
Looking forward to getting to know you all and journey together to our goals!

Hi all!! I'm a 33 y/o woman and mother to a 2-year-old. In fact he just turned 2 yesterday (January 1).
I thought this would be a nice team to join. Hopefully connect with other busy moms and get some tips and ideas on losing weight and parenting too :)
My goals are to lose at least 30 lbs. I know it's cliche to do the new year's resolution (and honestly I believe in making changes and goals throughout the year) but this year it felt really needed. I can't keep talking about losing weight- I need to do this for myself and my family (so that I am a happier, healthier mom and wife).

I work Monday to Friday at a desk job. I have a husband who is equally interested in healthy eating and lifestyle changes, so that helps a lot! In fact, this past fall he lost 35 lbs (while I lost 10- no fair :P). I love it when he gets on health kicks- it helps so much with meal planning and keeping junk food out of the house.

I digress- that's just a little bit about me. Hoping to connect with you all more on different threads and hopefully we can support eachother :) And Happy New Year!

My name is Shay. I'm working and a single parent of a three year old. I want my son to be healthy and I figured I should start doing the same. I want to be able to keep up with him and not be the parent who has to sit down even though he'd rather run around playing tag and racing.

I don't think I have posted here yet. So here goes. :)

My name is Christina. I have a twelve year old, a 4 year old, and a 15 month old. My 4 year old just started school today and was so excited. Mommy, however, hasn't handled her baby n not being in the house all day as well as I would have liked. LOL. Trying to adjust to yet another little angel growing up on me.

Hi my name is Erica and I am a 27 yr old mother to 2 little girls, Grace 3 and Cora 1. I have been working to get fit and healthy for them as I want to set a good example and help make sure they don't go through the same things I did. I want to help them learn what good nutrition options are and that physical activity is fun. Half way to my goal now about 30ish pounds to go!

Strive for progress not perfection!

So I have been a member of this team for a while but am just getting back into sparking and exercising. I am a 33 year old mother of 3 with 1 preschooler. She is super fun and always learning. I just went back to school to get my degree in secondary education so I am super busy. I was so excited to find the school gym so I can work out after class. Hopefully I can stick with it this time and keep the weight off.

The only thing you can't accomplish is the thing you don't start.

Hello! I am a 30 year old mom to a wonderful baby angel, Uriel. He currently learning to count and learning alphabets, colours. Its so cute watching him learn all those things and him speaking in his cute baby talk. I consider myself lucky bacause he loves fruits and veggies and I try to limit all the sugar that we eat at home. Mostly again he has milk and egg allergies so he does not eat any chocolates or ice creams.

Keep on trying and pushing Ileana, you will get there eventually.

Hi. I am Ileana and I have been Sparkmember since December 2008 (4 months after my son was born). I've been overweight since I was born emoticon . When I started in SP, I was weighting around 260 but now I weight 216 and my goal is to reach 160. I will be honest and tell you that my 5 years old son is is overweight too, he has 20 pounds more than he should. That is killing me! No matter what I try to do, it seems nothing works with him. His doctor says that, without considering his weight, his health is good but he really needs to lose weight to avoid any health complication in the future years.

My loving family (husband and mother) understand that our little dinosaur (he loves dinosaurs) must lose weight but I feel they do not pay enough attention to the food and activities they do at home. We are from Puerto Rico and I am proud but this means that my family loves rice, bread, sweets, and fried food which is the worst combination when you are trying to get healthy. emoticon The only thing I can do while I am out to work is pray they will follow my instructions for food and exercise. During weekends, I am on charge of everything but 2 days out of 7 won't make the difference.

My son is the reason why I decided to get active in SP again because I am positive that my friends will help me to help him. I wish you all great success in your journey for a better health. emoticon Never give up, and if you fall, stand up and emoticon .

emoticon

This is a learning journey... I am learning to eat healthy, to love exercise, but more important, I am learning to love myself.

Hey I am Jessica! I am 30 and a SAHM to a wonderful 3 year old who I love more than anything, even when she is being a little sass emoticon We are still working on the whole potty training thing. Its been pretty frustrating but I think we are getting LOTS closer now. I actually put her to bed last night in undies for the very first time so we will see when she wakes up. I checked on her a couple hours ago and she seemed to be dry so far so fingers crossed. This momma is sick of pullups

Hello Mighty Sparktians!

I am new to this website and so far I find it wonderful! I am almost vegetarian ( I rarely but still have from time to time chicken , fish or turkey ....organic whenever possible) , I have always been very health conscious and try my very best to minimize my impact on the environment . I am very eager to learn about how I can lead a merry vegan life style but being parent of a 3 year old Princess named Alicia I want introduce these changes slowly so that we can adjust successfully. I wish to use the trackers and blog space to help me organize my goals and share my progress and find inspiration.
I want reach out to this community to benefit from your experiences and points of view and offer you my insight on this amazing journey!

Hi everyone! I'm Krystie and I am 27. I have an amazingly rambunctious 3 year old that keeps me on my toes :) I was lucky and didn't gain any unessicary weight with his pregnancy. I developed PPD though and that spiraled out of control for over a year. Now I have finally made up my mind I want these 45lbs GONE!! I'm so happy to find this team and look forward to hitting our goals together!!

Hi! My name is Malinda and I have three boys: Marcus (5 yrs), Gavin (3.75yrs) and Eric (6.75 months). Both of the older boys are in pre-school. Marcus was born late August so my husband and I decided to wait a year to send him to Kindergarten.

Hi! My name is Kimberly. I have a 3 year old son named Lincoln and a 2 month old son named Declan. I've used sparkpeople successfully for many years. I am back in hopes to lose my baby weight. I am 179 now and would like to reach my average weight of 150. If I surpass that goal, I will be super excited! Please let me know if any of you would like to team up. I need all the motivation that I can get!

My name is Carrissa and I have a 4 year old little girl come the 5th of August. She is energetic and spunky and I have no energy to keep up with her. I have gained so much weight since my pregnancy and truth be told I blame a lot of my weight gain on my pregnancy when im the one to blame. Its been 4 years since I was 140 pounds so ive had plenty of time to fix myself. I now am pushing myself to the farthest and becoming stronger. I hope to be able to feel great about myself and be all that I know that I am. One day I am hoping to be strong enough to join the armed forces.

Hello! I'm Tori. Like many of you I'm looking to tone up and set a good example for my daughter. I quit smoking in May, and I gained a few pounds shortly after. (It was worth it still!) My daughter, Lilly, is 3. She is tall, outspoken, and loves to entertain. She dances and sings her way through each day. I'm a college student, and this is the first summer I haven't attended classes since she was an infant. Spending everyday with her again has its ups and downs. At three she has become independent and opinionated, and therefore, at times, deliberately defiant. Despite the moments of pure frustration (for both of us) we get by. My family loves to laugh, try new things, and find small adventures so I look forward to finding more fitness and active things for us to incorporate into our lives. I'm looking forward also to getting to know you all!

Hi! My name is Courtney and I just joined SP about a week ago. I'm a SAHM to Adalia who will be 5 next month, and Morrigan who is 20 months old. We stay pretty busy! I'm lucky- I found a gym with a daycare so I'm actually able to work out, which is something I haven't been able to do before. I've still got a lot of baby weight to lose, on top of the weight I gained from just having a poor lifestyle. I'm ready for a change! My goal is to lose 50 lbs by Christmas. (I'm currently 180 and only 5'2) in order to be able to chase my munchkins around a little better! Also 3 out of 4 of my grandparents have diabetes so I'm trying to avoid that route in my later years (I'm 26) by getting in shape now. Good luck to everyone and I look forward to hearing your stories!

Hello! My name is Wendy and I am a 26 years old with a 2.5 yr old son and 7 month old daughter. I was 120lbs pre-baby#2 and need to lose the last 5.4lbs to get back to that. As of today, I have officially lost ONE pound since being back on Sparkpeople (I was on for several years & then took a reprieve)! That's big for me because I did it with a healthy diet change & counting calories instead of having breastfeeding help me to take the pounds down. Breastfeeding was doing it up until a few months ago when I hit a plateau.
Look forward to meeting you all!

A little about myself...

My name is Nicki, I am 31, married with 2 beautiful little girls. My oldest is Annabelle, she is 3yrs old going on 13. My youngest is Emily and she is 7 months old. I was doing great with weight loss after baby number 2. Lost all the weight I gained with my pregnancy plus a good 20 pounds... I went out to celebrate my 31st birthday and since then, over the passed 3 months I have gained 15 pounds back! I'm so disappointed in my gain, but I know that since I've done it before I can do it again.

Like a lot of people I have been struggling with my weight for many years. I want to be healthy for my kids, I want to be healthy for my husband, but most importantly I WANT TO BE HEALTHY FOR MYSELF! I want to feel good about myself and I want to like what looks back at me in the mirror.

I know this will not be easy... If it were I wouldn't be where I am today. Like other attempts at weight loss, I know that I will fall off plan. I know there will be plenty of lazy days. However, I also know that if I really want this, I will need to pick myself up and keep plugging along. I can't let a bad day or week stop me from reaching my goals.

Nicki
