Hi. I'm a 35 year old married mother of 3 young boys. Also, I am a special education teacher for students with moderately intensive cognitive impairments. After always struggling with a low self esteem and feeling "fat" when actually very thin, I am now much larger than I have ever been (including being 9 months pregnant with any of my boys). Due to various health challenges and struggles, not to mention working on my second masters degree I gave up on working out and eating healthy. Now I'm taking my health and wellness serious. Not only do I want to look and feel good, I need to be an involved and active role model for my sons.

Member Since: 1/1/2013

My Goals:
# lose 50 lbs
# return to exercising 3-4 times per week
# finding ways to exercise (both cardio and strength) t home without buying a gym membership
# increase water intake to at least 64 oz per day
#eventually walking/running a 5 k

My Program:
I just started this program. As of now, I am trying the following:
# limiting calories to 2200-1500 per day
# drinking 64oz water per day
# exercising 3 days per week ( starting off slow and working my way back up)
#using Sparkcoach
# planning/ packing lunches to ensure I eat wisely during the day rather than not eating all day and overeating at night

Personal Information:
I live in Ohio.

Other Information:
I love reading. When I have time and I'm not reading text/research related to Autism, best teaching practices, etc... I enjoy paranormal documentary style books, thrillers, and am currently reading "water for elephants" (out of my normal genre and loving it!!)
