Hey, I am now back on the site and active as ever. I first started my journey with Spark at the age of 24 and I was able to lose 35 pounds in 4 months. Now I'm back at 33 and a proud mother of two little girls.

I put on the majority of my weight during my pregnancy which was a rough period for me. I lost my mother a few years ago to cancer while I was five and a half months pregnant with my oldest daughter Kennedy. After, my mom passed reality kicked in really fast and I began juggling a full time job, two kids and a husband which is why I barely can find time to exercise and make healthy food choices. With me it usually is whatever is the most convenient thing to eat, which usually results in very fattening foods.

My family is my life and I want to take every precaution to live a long and healthy life. My husband has been very supportive thus far and I don't know where I would be without him. I have tried dieting several times in the past but I really feel that this time will be different.

I hope I can find someone in Spark World to motivate me more.

Please feel free to drop me a few lines of encouragement, poems or any motivating pieces that tend to help you out when you stray from your weight loss path.
