I'm married to my soul mate and am the mother of 4 beautiful children who I live my entire life for. My ultimate goal is to lose 100 lbs and if I reach that goal, I'm hoping to take my dream vacation to Hawaii. I'm hoping that this site helps me to reach my goals and dreams...

When I was young I never had a problem with my weight because I played any and all sports that I could. Up until my senior year of high school when, while playing soccer, I shredded my ACL and have had three knee surgeries since then. I went off to college...gained weight...got married...gained weight...had one baby...gained weight...had baby #2...gained weight...baby #3...gained weight...baby #4 (and final)...gained weight. I am hoping, now that we are happy with the family that we have, it is time for me to be happy with who I am!!

It seems like I have dieted for the last 15 years, on and off, I would hate to see how much I would weigh if I hadn't. Now it's time to change the way I live and start eating and living healthy and happy all of the time!! Diet fads have never worked long term for me, so I am trying to change how I live little by little...I started by drinking atleast 8 glasses of water a day (and pretty well gave up soda), charting what I eat and paying attention to when I am full (and not when my plate was clean, as I was brought up to do), and still eating what I like, just in moderation.

I'm very happy with the progress that I have made so far...and the friends and support that I have on this site have been a real key to it all!! Together we will get there!!

    I am so happy to see you back on Spark again. I know your life is crazy busy and I have followed you a bit on FB but I'm not there very often.

    Thanks for stopping by my 16 blog. I am looking forward to doing those things. I've already started training the cat. I figure the more days, the more likely it'll happen. Right?

    Joy! It's so good to see you Sparking again! I'm so glad you're back to being an ASKer again! Stuff happens sometimes that keeps you away, but always know we welcome you back with open arms.

    I myself have been having computer problems the past couple of weeks and I haven't been able to post as much as I want to, but I'm reading the posts when I can, storing up things I want to say when I can finally respond.

    Don't be a stranger!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. Baler twine would be useful. I still haven't ditched those pants -- after all I washed them so now I have to wear them.

    Love to see you checking in on the ASK Team and I'm glad things are moving along. The kids must be done with school for the summer soon. Does that make things easier or do they have lots of activities to get to? Best wishes for your DH and his surgery.
