Hi there, i am a mama to 3 little ones and i am on a mission to get healthy. I want to be a good role model for my kids so that they grow up healthy. I have struggled with weight most of my life and i don't want to spend the rest of my twenties fat and miserable or the rest of my life for that matter. I am so glad that i joined this website. I have learned so much about nutrition, exercise, and myself. I am becoming a better person inside and out. I love sparkpeople! I still have a lot of weight to lose, but i am confident now that i can do it.

I wanted to add some quotes to keep me motivated.

"we can do anything we want to do if we stick to it long enough." Helen Keller

"You've got to say, i think that if i keep working at this and want it badly enough i can have it. It's called perseverance."-Lee Iacocca

"You have failed only when you quit trying, until then, you're still in the act of progression, so never quit trying and you'll never be a failure."- Tommy Kelley

"A year from now, you may wish you had started today."- Robert Schuller

"The greatest thing you have is the 24 hours in front of you. The past is gone; the future is distant. Today you CAN succeed. Set a goal you can achieve in the next 24 hours."-anonymous

"Failure is only a fact when you give up. Everyone gets knocked down, the question is: Will you get back up?"

Never, never, never, never give up!
