Your story seems familiar to me! I am a 47 year old mom with three children, ages 17, 13, and 7. I've been a member of this team for a while, though I find it not very active.
If you want, take a look at my page and some of the teams I'm on. Some of these may also work for you.
I'm in Illinois, where it is 20 degrees here today. I'm happy to be wearing my size 16 jeans today and they are a bit loose! Last year I could not even get into them. I'm hoping to retire all my size 18s soon!
Good luck to you.
