Janet, Welcome. I am only 2 weeks into Sparkspeople myself but I already feel better eating healthier foods and getting more exercise. The resources you find here are wonderful. I like the exercise demos, the recipes and especially the message boards and being able to hear what others making a change in their lives have to say. I look forward to seeing your comments. Feel free to add me to your friends list.
Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Phil 2:3-4.

HI, Janet, welcome to the team. I've had asthma since '84 but am finding that as I workout more I can feel my breathing is easier, not getting as winding as I used to. You can achieve success --just use the SP tools & stay active.
Just wanted to say hello to everyone and introduce myself. My name is Janet. I am married with two children, ages 6 and 8. I have been blaming my pregnancies for my weight. However, with my youngest being 6, I can't use that excuse any longer.
I was diagnosed with asthma 2 years ago and truly believe part of it is directly related to my weight. Also, I have arthritis which is directly effected by weight.
I want to get back to my pre-marriage weight of 130 but will settle for 145. (Additional motivation...my 20 year high school reunion is next year.)
