How can I call myself a soccer mom when there is no way that I could keep up with my two children? Only 11 years ago, I was that woman. I was fit and active but when I stopped playing soccer, I was no longer that. My goal is not to be the size 4 that I used to be, but to be able to be comfortable within my own body and to be able to play soccer the way I used to with my kids!

I would like to find buddies here on Sparkpage that understand how hard it is to lose weight and to keep it off. Motivation will be key with my success in weightloss and I am willing to listen to anyone's suggestions or advice!

My Goals:
I would like to lose 60-70 lbs by my 34nd birthday! I would like to have lost at least 20lbs by the time my family goes on an Alaskan cruise in July.

My Program:
I am counting my calories and striving to exercise daily.

Personal Information:
I am from St. Louis and am happily married. I have 2 children, 1 boy and 1 girl, a dog "Buttercup" who is a rescued greyhound, and a turtle. I enjoy soccer, scrapbooking with the soccer/baseball moms, and traveling with my family.

Other Information:
I enjoy reading books but I am picky about them. My favorite is "Good in Bed" by Jennifer Weiner. (It is not what it sounds like.) Anyone on a diet should read it. It is very lighthearted and funny. I also love going to shows at the Fox Theater. My favorite was Wicked. I also love watching the show Nip/Tuck. I never miss it. I love salty, spicy snacks such as hot chips but I am trying to stay away from those. I am a pretty picky eater but I am getting better.

    I'm just starting with this site, and I was browsing pages of people in the St. Louis area when I cam across yours. I noticed that you also loved "Good in Bed", and I just have to say that I agree--that's a must read for anyone who's struggling with their weight! It looks like you've got a great start to moving towards your goal. Best of luck to you! emoticon

    Hey girl, thanks for all your encouraging words! It looks like you are doing so great! I must admit, I haven't weighed myself since I started. I definitely can tell in my clothes that I've lost some -- even my neighbor noticed -- so that made me so happy. How are you doing?

    I missed you...
    I hope you are doing well- your ticker seems to be reflecting a wonderful weight loss. I ahve not been doing so well so i am a little depressed as the weight has been coming off in the tiniest of increments. As I went to the gym 5 times this week for at least an hour I really expected better. Feel free to try to cheer me up :o)

    Congrats on your weight loss! I stumbled onto your page -- and thought I'd leave you a message. I did lose 130 lbs once -- and for the most part, I maintained it for 2 years. But my choices weren't always the healthy ones. I can only tell you to make healthy choices for yourself -- and prepare for the unexpected -- ie, you go out to dinner and try to figure out what the healthy options are. I also think exercise is a great way to keep the weight down -- but it must be combined with healthy eating. And lastly, no matter what anyone tells you -- keeping off the weight is harder than losing it. Sounds like you're well on your way to success!
