hmm...what goes here? I'm not very good at this but here goes..
My name is Melody and I'm 37 and live in the Branson Missouri area. I have never been the skinny girl but in the past few years, I have really gained and I know it's time to turn things around. I have a 5yr old boy and I want him to know a healthy life and not all of my bad habits. At present, I don't have the energy or fitness level to get out and play with him as I should.
So my goals are to make healthier choices for myself and in doing so, get in better shape and lose weight. I don't have to fit into a size 7 but I do need to be able to go on a hike or run around the yard with my son without getting out of breath and feeling as though I've run a marathon. Being able to buy regular sized clothes would be amazing.
I would be happy to have a buddy for this journey if anyone is interested. Would love to find someone who is in a similar place in life or a lot of weight to lose.

Fitness Minutes: 95

My Goals:
1. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day
2 .Get 8 hrs of sleep every night
3. get three servings of vegetables/fruits a day
4. make more time for my son every day
5. go walking with Jace at least three times a week

My Program:
I am not a fan of the word "diet or dieting" as I hear it all the time from those around me and to me a diet doesn't stay with you but making positive changes in my lifestyle will. What I'm doing is trying to make healthier choices in the things I eat, making myself aware of what I'm consuming and increasing my activity level so that I can get back in shape. It won't be an overnight change but I know I can do it if I stick with small changes I'm more likely to stay with it.

Other Information:
I like to walk but have very few places to do so safely where I live so I try to get down to the Landing in Branson to walk when I have time. I am hoping to get a bike soon and be able to bike with my son this spring and summer as well as spend a lot of afternoons after work at the lake and walking all around Silver Dollar City.
