Update: 1/7/19 Back for the 3rd and Last time. This time I will do it. I am now prediabetic and 50 years old. Creating healthier habits, 1 day at a time.

I need to lose weight for my health. My family is worried about me and so am I. I want to be alive to enjoy grandchildren someday. I first joined Spark People in 2012, when I was out of work and had plenty of time to exercise and prepare healthy meals. After losing 65 pounds I started working full time again and fell back into all my old unhealthy habits. After being MIA for 2 years and gaining everything back, I am back to start again. This time, I will develop healthy habits, while working full time and I will make them stick. I can do it. I MUST do it.

Personal Information:
I am currently a preschool teacher. I have been married since 1990 and have 2 incredible children. I lost 60 pounds with Spark people in 2012 and plan to do it again. My body did not hurt like this, when I was 60 pounds lighter.

Other Information:
I title my page "Queen of Best Intentions" because that is me to a tee. I used to buy many different diet pills to try, exercise items, etc. with every intention of using them, but I don't or give up very quickly.

    emoticon !!! The 1st time you lost is exciting!! But, this time it's more so because you know more pitfalls. A very busy lifestyle.

    I wish you the Best with preparing meals, healthy lunches and I LOVE going for walks as often as I can. I could stay in and chat with the other associates or yup,,I invite them out for a walk. Its only a 10-20 min 1 but it's still counts

    Progress not perfection. You've got this and I have claw marks in my knee!! Lol silky cat is purring and stuck her claws into my knee.

    Haven't heard from you in awhile. Hope you are doing well. I see you are keeping up with your water intake. I must say I admire anyone who can get in their 8 cups everyday. That is one area that makes me gag! Summer is almost over and now we are approaching that time of year which is problematic for a lot of people - holiday season.Can you say FOOD and STREES. But if we stick together we can make it through with a minimal of damage. That's what (spark) friends are for.
