I am a 41 year-old mom who has been married for 9 years and I also work outside of the home. I need some support and I also need some motivation! I am doing Spark People for a second time and I am hoping that it will help me once again reach my goals.

I have been overweight most of my life and have decided that I need to make this a lifelong commitment....no more excuses!! I am doing this for me and also hoping to pass on good, healthy habits to my 7 year-old son.

Forty is the new 20 and I am ready to face this challenge head on and succeed!!!

Fitness Minutes: 23,665

My Goals:
Mainly just to make the right decisions and to be a great role model for the young man in my life. I don't want him to experience what I have throughout my childhood and I want him to pass on to his children what I hope he has learned from me.


My Program:
I currently belong to Planet Fitness and try to make it to the gym at least 3 times a week. I also like to run outside when it is warm or not raining.




Personal Information:
I have struggled with weight issues most of my life. I have been an overweight teen and adult and I am trying my hardest not to pass that on to my son.

    Good luck on your Disney Half Marthon coming up! Will you be running Detroit this year? I signed up for the US only half this year so I can see the other half of the course. It's a lot easier than running the full 26.2 miles to see all of Detroit.

    Hello!
    I found your SparkPage through one of my emoticon 's pages. I'm a runner, too, although I'm new at it. I just LOVE to run! I especially like running more slowly and covering a longer distance (10k for me now, but I want to slowly increase my mileage) rather than short and speedy. emoticon

    I hope you are having a wonderful winter and are meeting all of your SPARKy goals! I hope you don't mind that I added you as my emoticon --you're really inspiring!

    I just happened about your sparkpage. I live in the Detroit area as well and am a runner. I have done several 10Ks and 5Ks. I will be doing my first half at the festival of races in April and have also signed up for the Detroit half. Maybe I will see you at a race sometime
