Hello! I'm a 48 year old married mother of two. The kids are almost 13 and 16 and keep me very busy. My husband and I own our own business. I am lucky to work from home. I am involved with several organizations and maintain a very busy life. I don't take much time for myself and have gained way too much weight. I want to get healthy for me. I want to be a good example for my kids.

I started out last summer journaling what I ate every day. This started at the end of May 2008 when I weighed 206. I lost 11 pounds by myself. On July 9, 2008, I happened upon this site! Thank goodness. I began the journey with Sparkspeople that day at 195. I hope to get the weight off this time. I've tried every DIET. They don't work. I weighed 181 two years ago and gained a bunch back! STRESS! I'm committed again to do it this time. With this site and all of my new friends, I know I can!

I then fell off the wagon terribly after getting down to 157 pounds and TONS AND TONS of stress. We had a tornado and my husband and daughter were in a terrible wreck, thankfully they are ok. My weakness is stress and I am a terrible STRESS EATER! I am back up to 185 and will not gain another pound! It is time to get back on track. I know I can!

Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that made you smile!

    "Everyday is a life, being born in daybreak and dying when you go to sleep. Live every day as amazingly as possible. Learn what you can and make it worth something. For once you go to sleep, that day has died; it will never happen again, only to be remembered or forgotten.” Carpe Diem
