Two difficult pregnancies and a slew of bizarre health issues and surgeries over the past 8 years left me 100 pounds too fat and until recently, too tired to really care. But with my health issues resolved and my attitude adjusted, I am finally ready to tackle this weight thing.

I am the proud mom of 2 super-smart, super-funny kids and I’ve been married for 12 years to my awesome husband who, as my biggest fan has taken on the role of House Dietician. Not only does he prepare and pack my nutritious lunches for work, but he prepares delicious / nutritious dinners for the entire family. So this is not just "Mommy's Diet", it really is just my family's new way of life.

I am thankful to my 9 year old who is trying to teach me how to do push-ups. (I'm thinking it's a lot easier when you only weigh 60 pounds.) I am also thankful that my husband hid her "coach's whistle".

And I'm grateful for my husband's unconditional support--not only for packing my lunches everyday-- but also for all those times I said “Holy Crap, I’m FAT!!!” and he would just point to one of the kids and say “Yea, but look what you made”. (priceless;)

***2013-Update*** I took a wee-bit of a Spark Break to go back to school and finish my bachelor’s degree (which I abandoned 20 years ago!) and decided to keep going, and now I'm 1/2 way through with my MBA! Unfortunately, my time away from SparkPeople was not kind to me, but I am back, I am focused and I reset my ticker (and had to delete my "Lost 40 lbs!" badge), but I'm ready to finish what I started, set-backs and all!
