I am a mom to a boy who is 12 y.o. and a daughter who is 14 y.o. and i have been married 21 years already (feels like yesterday). Both kids participate in competitive sports so we are constantly on the go. I also work part time but my priority is my family.

I have always felt inadequate due to my weight. I have allowed that to dictate how i felt about myself. I don't want this to continue. I have been on Spark now for over 3 months. I have never recorded my food or any activity longer than a week so recording my food and activity for over 3 months is amazing for me. Have I lost a lot of weight since starting? - NO. That's ok. I now have identified my triggers and I now know what i need to do to get where I need to go.

1. Organize my kitchen to incorporate the tools i need and minimize temptations.
2. Meal Plan - including the kids and hubby. Open freezer space.
3. Exercise plan - 5-6 days/week.
4. Id. triggers and replace with positive behaviours. i.e. what to do while watching t.v.?

Personal Information:
I turned 47 in November 2016.
I love to read.
I have an issue about exercising. I was raised to think as exercise as a luxury not a necessity so i will put work over exercise. It takes a lot of energy for me to think otherwise. I will make it a priority.
I love dogs but won't have one until i am home - we are never home as a family.
i always put others before myself - need to change that.
i love shopping but don't feel good about myself even if i wear the clothes. i will change that once i start really applying my changes.
i love to weight lift but again getting myself to do that.

    emoticon emoticon ~~BEST FRIENDS~~ emoticon emoticon
    The kind of friend who laughs at a joke 3 times
    The first...when it's told
    The second...when somebody explains it to you, and
    the third....when five minutes later, you actually get it.

    The kind of friend you can get mad at only for a little while,
    because you have important stuff to tell them.
    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
    The kind of friend who knows who you are
    and still chooses to be seen with you in public..
    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
    A best friend never gets tired of listening
    to your pointless drama over & over & over again.

    We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things,
    because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

    Don’t stress about the closed doors behind you. 
    New doors are opening if you keep moving forward.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Today I close the door to the past, open the door to the future,
    take a deep breath, step on through and start a new chapter in my life.

    emoticon Open & close the doors in your life, whatever they may bring you! emoticon

    Most of us try to avoid hills, but what's so good about flat?
    Think about it..flat tires, flat hair, flat returns, and -the ultimate-flat-lining.
    Life happens on the hills. They're opportunities to prove to yourself that
    you're stronger than you ever imagined. If you never attempt the ascent,
    you will never know the the thrill of swooshing down the other side.

    Crawling is acceptable.
    Falling is acceptable.
    Puking is acceptable.
    Crying is acceptable.
    Injury is acceptable.
    Pain is acceptable.
    Quitting is not.

    Think of a number between 0 and 20.
    Add 32 to it.
    Multiply by 2. Subtract 1.
    Now close your eyes.
    It's dark, isn't it??
