I am a 31 year old mother of 2 wonderful boys, Zachary (8) and Gabriel (1 month). My husband, Joe, and I have been married for7 years. I have been a member of SparkPeople for about 2 years and I have lost about 20 lbs. I unfortunately gained most of it back during my pregnancy with Gabriel. Since I am not currently working, now is a good time to focus on getting back into shape. At one point in time, I was very focused and motivated and did very well losing weight. Iwould like to find that motivation again and finally break down the barriers that have kept me from reaching my goals to this point.

Member Since: 4/28/2008

Fitness Minutes: 8,613

My Goals:
Long term goal: I would like to lose a total of 70 pounds.
Short term goal: I would like to lose 2 pounds a week by exercising and eating better.

My Program:
My program is a combination of a couple of different things. I am using some of the weight watchers principles to improve my eating habits and also incorporating exercise into my daily routine. I am also using SP as a support mechanism. This is a step that I haven't tried before and so far it is working to keep me motivated.

Personal Information:
A little about me: I am approaching my 30th birthday this year (Aug. 9). I live in Sheridan, IN which is just north of Indianpolis. I am a HUGE Indianpolis Colts fan. I am addicted to Guitar Hero. I enjoy spending time with my son, Zachary, especially during the summer time when we go swimming, to the park, zoo, and other fun places.

Other Information:
In December of 2006, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I am now trying to make a solid committment to take better care of myself and my diabetes. I want to be around to see my son accomplish all of his dreams later in life. I'm hoping that I can get motivated enough to get there.

    Wow, it's good to have a Spark Buddy like you!!! Thanks for the encouragement and letting me vent!!! i think we should try to find a web site that will use a current picture of us and project what we will look like after the weight loss. THAT would be a motivator. I'll let you know what I find!

    Love ya,

    The other mother. emoticon
