I'm not technically a Westchester Sparker, but I'm across the river in Rockland, so I guess I'm close enough. Just saying hello.
About me... hmmm..... I'm a working mom to two darling little girls, have a hellish commute to and from work each day, am horribly overweight (obese even) and hate to exercise (there, I said it). However, I want and need to get healthy. For me. For my girls. For my career. Oh yeah, and for my hubby, though he doesn't put any pressure on me, but dammit, I will beat him at wrestling one of these days! ;)
So, that's all for now. I did join a lose 5 lbs in March challenge. Didn't quite get there, but did lose a pound (and I'm holding onto this -1 by a thread). But it's a start, because the scale hasn't moved in a month!
current weight: 223.0

Hey there, thanks for joining my little group. It's brand new and now I'll check the boards every day to make sure we're all up to date with everything. I love to exercise and with 2.5 weeks left in summer I want to get to the Y as much as I can. Then I need to get a good plan together for working out during the school year. I love the White Plains Y, great gym.
Hi Jennifer ! I live in Tarrytown and also belong to the Y. I have 4 kids- 18,16,14 and 12. 3 girls and a boy. I'm a classroom aide and don't work over the summer, but I'm having trouble commiting to exercise and am eating everything in sight ! Oh well, that's about it. Thank you to Jennifer for making this group. I hope we get some nice members ! - Barb
Hello everyone, my name is Jennifer and I'm a native New Yorker happily living in White Plains for almost 8 years now. I've been working hard to lose weight and change my lifestyle one habit at a time for lasting results. I have about 25lbs. left to reach my original goal and I've been doing very well.
I belong to the local YMCA and love the facilities and the people there. I have the summer off and manage to get to the Y 4 or 5 days a week now.
I like the common goals many spark team members have and how we can all support each other through the bumps and high points. I think it helps to see your struggle in others so you know you're not alone and you can accomplish anything.
Tell us all a bit about yourself, your goals and what you hope to get out of being a spark team member. Welcome!
