Hi Debbie, You are burning the candle at both ends. Maybe that seven year old can participate with you in some of your healthy endeavors. I wish you the best of luck as you find balance and a healthier new lifestyle.
Welcome Debbie to the team. I have a few years on you and changed my lifestyle 11 months ago with SparkPeople. If you can build a strong foundation for yourself and build on new and healthy skills, Spark will work for you. I was on SparkPeople for 2 months learning everything I could, and very excited about the journey I was about to take. Purchasing the book Spark really helped me get all the information I was learning consolidated in one place. After almost 11 months I have lost 63 lbs, adopted good nutrition and fitness habits. The key for me is consistency and logging in my food and fitness everyday without fail. If you are looking for a great learning tool from this website look at the "SparkPoints" page. SparkPoints page is like a map for success and learning tool. www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/sparkpoi nt s.asp
Have a great journey for your new fitness and nutrition.
Hi Debbie, glad you found this good team I am Rosalyn and I am 79 and raised 4 children, now there are 8GKs and 7 GGKs.
And I am still working and loving it, I think the more you LOL the more energy you have, and the happier you are.
Rosalyn Larson I am so happy to be on Maintenance. It took 2 years but it was worth it. I am going to keep it in a 5#s range up or down. My Promise is I will never ever do that to myself again-----Rosalyn
Before moving to Oregon I was a lot more active. I find that the overcast skies and I don't like each other. I am finally taking action by having light added to my classroom and my home. Also mall walking during the winter and home upgrades good old fashioned sweaty work.
Glad you found us.

I'm glad you found SparkPeople. It has totally changed my life. I have a place to get information, support, and friends. As you learn the web site, you will find nutrition and fitness trackers that really help you stay on track if you are trying to get healthier. Good luck on your Spark Journey.
I remember, it seems not so long ago, I was really an active person. I went dancing every Friday night, rode horses, hiked up the river and it seemed that I was always on the go. Thinking back on those days, I wondered what had changed. Life. Life changed. More stress, more work, more responsibilities. How does a person balance it all and make it work? That's why I'm here. I have a 40+ hour a week job, a 7-year-old and a very tired 53-year-old body. I've tried to do it on my own - just like I do everything else - so when I heard of Spark People, I thought, "Okay, I'll give it a try." So, here I am. By the way - I'm Debbie and I am ready to write a new chapter of my life. Oh yea, I'm a Healing Touch Practitioner too. I guess I'm one of those people who takes care of everyone else first. : )
