Hello from Alaska. I am a Freshman at AIU working toward my BSCJ, mom of 4 (19,17,15,8), homemaker, and wife to my HS sweetheart. I am struggling to get myself sorted - healthy, family-sized, fast meals; completing all the coursework; getting the bills paid; finding time to exercise (especially when deadlines are looming); and making time to let my family know I am still here to support them (kissing boo-boos, noting achievements, kissing hubby, etc).
I have been struggling with a weight issue since my first child when I blossomed from 125# to 180#. Four kids later and I have stabilized at 222, though I had a run of about a year after the last when I enjoyed of the rack 14's (ballooned again once he stopped nursing though)
