Hi, I am a 40 years old and have struggled with weight issues for most of my life. I lost about 25 pounds last year but managed to gain about 10 of it back over the winter and holidays. Part of my struggle comes with difficulty I have in exercise due to chronic pain issues. I had been using My Fitness Pal but am ready for a change and have heard great things about Spark People. It is time for a change in my life, not just a weight loss program but a lifestyle change. I have been happily married for 7 years to a man I was great friends with for 13 years before we got married. Between the 2 of us we have 5 girls. I brought a daughter to the marriage who is now 17 and just graduated high school. He brought twins who are now 22 as well as 2 other girls now 13 and 14. We were just blessed with our first grandson earlier this month. I work full-time as a Business Analyst for Thirty-One Gifts. In addition, we own a sign company that keeps me busy outside of my normal job. We are usually busy which makes it difficult to cook full healthy meals all of the time and we all know that eating on the go can be difficult. I am more determined now than ever to make the changes to a healthy me now. I look forward to supporting each of you as well as receiving the advice/support from you guys. We are in this journey together and all working toward common goals.
