I'm a 40-something year-old professional with a wonderful, active family! I work 32 hours a week in a sedentary desk job, but when I'm home, I have a wonderful husband and 4 lovable, crazy kids under the age of 13 to keep up with!

Obesity, diabetes, and heart disease run in my family, and I'm trying to make the best of my heath while I'm young enough to make a difference! I'm stubborn, and also extremely once I've messed up on a diet in the past, I've given up! I have a lot to work on on keeping up this heathly lifestyle for the long haul!

Personal Information:
I'm a very happily married 44-year old from the Deep South. I've lived here all my life and love it--well, except for the excessive heat in the summer! My husband and I love to travel when we can squeeze in 2 or 3 days at a time. Having 4 shcool-age children at home keeps us extremely busy most days.

I work as an electrical engineer 32 hours a week. The part-time status has been so helpful, but I seem to stay so busy on my "off" day that I never feel like it's a relaxing day! But, I enjoy being at home that one day a week I get the luxury!!

    Heard you might have gotten rustled up by some pixies or hog tied by some amazons. Swing by the campfire and let us know you are still alive!!

    I noticed on another Sparker's page that you got a Nutribullet. I just wanted to ask since I am considering purchasing one: how do you like it, and have you lost any weight, do you feel better? Thank you in advance for any info. Have a great week!

    Take care,
