I also am a very busy wife and mother of three small children. I am finishing 2 degrees this semester in accounting and business administration. I do projects and speak for Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society. My children all are in extracurricular activities because I believe it helps them learn responsibility and teamwork. We go to church on a regular basis which is very important to us. On top of all this my daughter and I started a non-profit organization a few months ago and it took off quickly. This is a full-time job in itself. I do understand the busy mother syndrome. It can be overwhelming especially when you need to lose 70+ pounds. If I can be of help in anyway please let me know as it would help me also.

You guys are so inspiring! I am also a busy mom of 3, working full time (more than, most of the time), married to my best friend, active in my church.... I find quite a bit of motivation through a Facebook support group I'm a member of. It's got some great women in it! We share recipes, fitness motivation, and support. I love my sisters there. :)

Hi all! I'm a full time nurse, mother of 2, plus 2 dogs, wife, have a house to care for and if that's not busy enough I am an independent distributor for ItWorks which means I'm also busy wrapping people and doing wrap parties! I love all that I do but it's been difficult finding time for my fitness! I find it's important to get creative and plan plan plan!!!!

Good morning. I have a lot of weight to lose, about 100lbs. I am also extremely busy. I work full time (would rather work part-time), am married, have three amazing, busy children, and own a home which requires all the maintenance that goes along with owning a home. It is super difficult to plan healthy meals - in fact, it's hard to find time to do grocery shopping. In my life, my family and marriage (been married 18 yrs) comes first and always will, followed by other responsibilities, like work, that are necessary to provide necessities and opportunities for my children. Then comes maintaining the home (we do need to have clean bathrooms & floors, clothes after all). Lastly,of course, comes me. I don't sit down until between 8:30/9:00 each night. There is no extra time for very much. I am going to start out with 10-20 minutes of exercise squeezed in somewhere each day and go from there.

I would really love to have a SparkPeople lifestyle buddy or buddies who are in similar, relatable circumstances to mine who I can strategize with, share ideas with, talk about frustrations and how to overcome them, and share motivations with. Communicating electronically at the end of each day would work best for me. I am heading into this SparkPeople journey with serious intentions and am seeking the same.

I know your out there! Come find me!
