I have battled with my weight for my entire life it seems. In high school I was active with sports, a big girl still, I seemed to keep my weight under control. Now, 3 children later, the word "ME" has been pushed to the back burner.

I have lost and gained the same pounds for many years and it needs to stop and I am the only one who can change this. Nobody made me heavy. Nobody made me unhealthy. Nobody gave me stretch marks(okay, maybe the kids did give me those!) I am responsible for me.

After many feelings of guilt about leaving the girls while I go and exercise, I have realized that I was not doing anybody any good in the mental and physical condition I was in. I was beyond moody, tired, lazy, boring.

Now, I crave my exercise! I crave good healthy food. I crave being a better mother and wife to my family.

So I am ready. I am ready to be healthy again. I am ready to take on this life change.

I hope to be an inspiration!!

    Hey you! I've been missing in action around Spark, but going to be back into my routine. It's been one heck of a year and I'm ready to start the new year off right! I've slowly gained way too much weight. That's going to stop right now!

    Hope you are doing well. Still coaching? I've even trailed from my Beachbody routines and that's gotta stop, too! What to do? Combat? Pump? Turbo? So many decisions!!!

    Cya round! Let's make these last two months really count!

    Oh Mandy....not good. I've gained it all plus more back. My third is now 1.5yrs old and I'm really into eating organic I just need to get into a routine of working out. I was thinking about doing shakeology to get me on a routine. Do u still sell that? Can u give me more info? How r u? R u still up NorthEast? How r your girls? I need to lose like 25lbs just to feel comfortable in a gym or spin cls again... :( Sucks! So proud of u...I pray I can have that healthy life like u someday soon!
