Hello, my name is Melissa, I am 40 years old. I am a mom and wife who always has put everyone else first for their needs. Now I sit 96 pounds over weight and came to a point that I want to change who I am.

I found spark people by accident and it was a good find. I look forward to all I can learn and the nutrition tracking to keep me on task. I have some goals I want to meet, and I hope that I can attain them all within reason. So here I go!

WAIT!!! Now the kicker...I started this program back in Novemeber of 2009, I could have met my goal by now if I was sticking with the plan. I didn't, I fell off the wagon and rolled down the hill and fell into a chocolate vat on my couch, while still watching and revelling at those on the biggest loser. Regained the 26 pounds I had lost. I had hit a platuea and got restless and slowly got back to all my bad habits.

My Goals:
I have a goal of July 1, 2011. It is to be down 50 lbs. That is ten pounds a month. I will take a vacation with my husband (the first one with just the two of us)

My Program:
Well today is start day mentally, tomorrow is start day food wise. For the next three weeks I am going to work on cutting out coffee and soda. I am going to do a special K breakfast or oatmeal and fruits, and for lunch and dinner Lean Cuisine. I need pre-packaged and simple to get me started.

Personal Information:
I live in Enid Ok. Originally from upstate New York (no, not the city). I enjoy landscaping, summer weather and pond building. And hopefully when I lose this weight, having more friends over for pool parties.

Other Information:
I have spent years watching Biggest Loser with my husband while on the couch sharing cookies or a huge bowl of ice-cream. It's time to get off the couch.

    THANK you for the relaxation music I so appreciate it. I love music... it is kind of my outlet to put on earbuds and listen to my MP3 player....
    It doesn't stop the 9 yr old from talking..but it does drown him out when I need that break!

    Hope all is good today for you!!! Post a blog... let me see what your day has produced!

    Thanks for the kind comments on my blog. Believe me, I didn't do all those cool things when mykids were young, either. When you're the grandma, it's much easier to do fun things. As a mom, you're too busy with discipline, learning how to be a mom, and lots of other distractions. I'm separated, on the verge of retirement, and my grandson usually doesn't need much in the way of discipline when he comes over. I also learned about the games from a granparents website, I certainly didn't think them up on my own. Good luck on your April 1 goal!
