I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Kelly. I am 36 years old. I am not brand new to Sparkpeople, but I have been struggling with my weight on my own now for a several years. I feel like reaching out for more support and hopefully return the favor. I am a proud mother of two boys, a 4 year old firecracker and an 8 month old happy-go-lucky baby. I just stopped breastfeeding and my weight is creeping back up. I work from home (mostly) as an online professor for several private universities. I love my job, and it gives me lots of freedom with my schedule and time raising my boys. I also like being a wife to my hard working husband who takes very good care of me. I just need to find some strength and motivation to lose weight. I have a short term goal and a long term goal. My short term goal is to get below 200 pounds and my long term goal is to reach a healthy weight, probably ~135 pounds for my height. I want to have a my third child soon and then really focus on dropping the rest of the weight. I have been over 200 pounds for about 6 years. It sucks! I grew up thin and was a medium build as an adult. For many reasons, I have gotten very fat over the past 10 years. I have given up making excuses, but still struggle with motivation. I look forward to meeting my fellow spark people and really staying motivated to make permanent changes in my life! Thanks for reading this!! :)
It is not enough to take steps which may some day lead to a goal; each step must be itself a goal and a step likewise.
