Back for the 3rd time lol well I guess 3rd times the charm right. I think about why my other 2 tries on this site were not successful and it's because I went overboard with it. This time I am just going to come on here slowly no commitments to any teams as a leader I do not want to continue to let others down.

Well it's been almost a year since I have been on and I have managed to be up and down I am now just looking towards one goal at a time I'm goping to be 20 pounds down by April 25th so far I am 8 pounds down so 12 pounds more in 1 month hopefully it is acheivable after that I will update my next goal.

Here is a little on my background of wanting to lose weight...Joined the site back in 2008 after having a health scare of developing blood clots and thinking that i had a heart attack. It is not a easy thing to go through thinking you had a heart attack at 23!!

So I decided I had to do something about it and I did I lost 40 pounds...only to gain it all back!

So here I am at square three all over again but to only have more motivation my health!!! This will not be a pretty journey and it will be hard but I will succeed this time not only for myself but for my children!!

    Now is the time! You are so blessed to be doing this together with your husband. Sharing common goals is a great way to build your relationship stronger.

    Welcome to Spark People. I hope that you find as much inspiration and motivation as I have. Remember that losing weight and getting healthy takes time and effort but you are worth it. You are worth the time to get your heart pumping at least 30 minutes three times a week. You are worth a few minutes a day to post all your food in the nutrition tracker. Be strong, be brave. Post your tracker and get it moving to the right.

    Now is your time to shine,
