My intro...

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Here it goes...

My name is Ginger, I am a mom to 2 little girls. Morgan is 5 and Madalyn (Maddy) is 4. My husband- Greg and I have been married for a little over 7 years.

I have been "over weight" for most of my life. I am 5'1" and started my journey this past January with Weight Watchers. When I met my husband in February of 2001 I weighed 145-150. When I had Morgan I weighed 225. After that I dropped down to 191. 7 months later I got pregnant with Madalyn and at the end of my pregnancy with her I weighed in at 218. I again dropped some weight in the fall of 2006 I was down to 181. I was on Weight Watchers then and decided to stop. I figured I could do it on my own. WRONG!! So since January 2010 I have lost 9 lbs with Weight Watchers (again). I then came across SP (I've been a member since June of 2008 but rarely if at all used the site). I know I haven't lost alot but with the help of SparkPeople and my Sparkfriends I will CONQUER this. I need to be healthy for my family and I am just DONE!I am going to do this for ME! I want to be able to run, play softball, zumba with the best of them and be able to keep up with my kids. Once I can run for long distances my goal is to run in the Disney Marathon or Half Marathon. I want my husband and kids to be proud of me!! I want to teach my family that it is important to live a healthy lifestyle and show myself that I am important and needed!!

So there it is in a nutshell! It's taken me days to write this all down!

    You have two little kids, of course it took you days to write down! Welcome back! I also did the Weight Watchers thing too. It's hard to fit in meetings when you have life going on. Kids take a lot of time and energy, I have a 6 & 7 year old myself. Here's to a successful journey! emoticon
