Hi, Im Samantha, Im 39 and a wife, mother, step mother, hairstylist, i have 2 children living at home. And i may have 2 more here soon.

I need to be able to keep up with a very VERY
active10, and 11 year old.
I may not weigh in much for I do not own a scale for they end up maken me stop for I dont see the results I want as fast as I want. Yes I know its not the scales fault but I also do not want the 11 year old to think that a life revolves around a number on a scale, Yes she is on the heavy side so I am hopeing that once she is here we can work out together even if it is just walking the dog, or walking around our neighborhood.
