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 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!!!

Member Since: 10/23/2009

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.

    What a great decision you have made to join Spark People. It is an amazing site! The really cool thing is that it is FREE!! There is tons of information to absorb here and there is always someone around to help if you find yourself having a bit of trouble.

    WARINING!! It is proven that QuickFiring can lead to a HOT BODY! I dare you to come play the QuickFire way!!!
