Hi! I'm a brand new 40yo working mom of 2 teens, 2 dogs, 2 cats and a partner to my wonderful spouse. I've been a member of SparkPeople for awhile now, but fell off of late. One of my sons told me if losing weight would make me feel better than why don't I just do it, because he wants to see me happier. If that isn't a jolt to your self-esteem, not sure what is. So I am committed to doing this and, I mean, really doing this for me, for my health, for my spouse so we have many more years together, and for my sons, whom I want to be happy role model. It's not going to be easy and I know I'll fall. I just have to keep my head in the game knowing that with success comes some failure, because we can't be a success at something if we don't try and fail a bit along the way.

    OMG, I was wondering why I hadn't seen you on spark for so long. I'm so glad you're recovering. I would just focus on getting healthy and not stress out about doing something drastic to lose weight. Take it slow and steady! Glad you're back. emoticon

    I love the idea of turning it around and asking what her workout schedule is ..that is *excellent* advice..I'm going to use it. It gets so frustrating some times. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you're having a great week! emoticon emoticon
