I'm a happily married mom of 4. I love my life - my family, my friends, my job - but I wish we made better food choices. My weight has continued to go up as I have gotten older, and I cannot find any exercise that I can stick to, let alone enjoy.

Member Since: 2/21/2008

Fitness Minutes: 3,606

My Goals:
Well, until recently, my goels were to eat better, exercise more, and set a good, healthy example for my kids. Right now, I just want to make it through this pregnancy without gaining more than 15 lbs (the amount recommended by based on my current weight.)

My Program:
Even pregnant, I will be exercising 6 days a week for 15-20 minutes, usually on my elliptical, but also long dog walks once the weather stays warm.

I want to eat healthier foods, less junk, better calories. While losing weight in the end would be wonderful, my main goal is just to be healthier and show my kids a good example.

Personal Information:
My name is Helena. I live outside of Chicago in a suburb that hardly anyone local has even heard of. I have 2 great kids from my first marriage. I finally got it right on my second try - I'm married to the perfect man, and we will be adding a member to our family in December 2008.

Other Information:
I love to read. I watch any crime show on TV. I have too many pets, and would still take in more, to my poor husband's dismay. I collect candles. I probably have more candles than the Vatican. My favorite color is red. I laugh a LOT. I could use a nap right now.
