Hi I am Carol. I have been overweight since grade 12. Weight went on partially from meds and pregnancies while on those meds. But I am taking a NO EXCUSES attitude to my journey. With an upcoming trip and a family wedding in the future I find a renewed sense of motivation. I know I can do this....LET"S DO IT!
I have recently received my license to subtitute teach in local schools. I am working part time with my husband while the kids are at school. I am finding it difficult to manage my time between the house, kids, work, outside responsibilities, much less getting much ME time.
I am currently have 25% of my total goal lost. I am SO DONE being the person in the mirror I hate to look at. I want to be a confident person.
I seem to have gotten lost over the last 6 weeks and my weight loss has greatly slowed down. I intend on regaining momentum and taking back my control of myself!

Member Since: 3/29/2011

Fitness Minutes: 19,904

My Goals:
I have decided to reward myself at every 20lbs loss with colourful hair streaks.
Goal #1 to be under 200lbs. by end of May 2015.
Goal #2 I want to be down 50lbs, which would be 187lbs by the end of summer 2015.
Goal #3 I would like to reach 150lbs by February 4, 2016.
I am marking my total loss from 237lbs that I weighed in at when I started Ideal Protein, even though I weighed 247 according to my doctor before Christmas.

My Program:
I am doing Ideal Protein with my daughter and Mother-in-law and tracking on Spark.
I plan to start walking as soon as the snow has cleared off of the track. Even found a walking buddy.
I am going to make sure 8 is a miniumum amount of glasses of water I drink a day.

Personal Information:
I am a mom of 5. I work for my husband's land surveying company. I also volunteer some, not as much as previous years, but only beause of my health.
I am married to my high school sweetheart. We are a typical family and currently 3 of us are trying to lose weight. I am trying to feed the younger kids the same food as we are eating to try to teach and enforce healthier eating habits.

Other Information:
I am realizing how fabulous some people in my life are. I always knew...but now I KNOW! I love my family and friends with a power that even surprises me!

    Nice to see a fellow NB Sparkperson on here. Thanks for the note. We should stay in touch for sure and be each others cheerleader. Besides, your close enough that you could possibly come kick me in the ass if I start slacking. lol emoticon

    Thanks for responding on my wall. I work in education too and struggle with time to take care of me since having kids. I added you as a friend and hopefully we can get through this weight loss journey with the support of a Mama tribe here.
