Hey don't feel ashamed, we want you to succeed and you are the only person who can control your destiny, you need to get selfish to get you healthy, that means putting yourself first.

When you get healthy then everyone benefits from it, you will have more energy to be a great mom and wife !

Hello Soverton, thank you for your welcome. I haven't looked at that magazine for a while. I don't think that it is sold in my part of the world. I need to go check. Thank you!

Hello BarbaraRose,

Thank you for your reply and making me feel welcome. I like what you wrote in your siggy. I feel ashamed that I did actually write that, I didn't think that I did. I know that my family is not to blame and I do have to take responsibility for myself.

Thanks so much. :)

Welcome MaryAnn! I am new here too and have similar goals. I certainly know how you feel with the kids and husband. I have started cooking recipes from the Cooking Light Magazine, and with the substitutes that they have like low-fat, fat free or olive oil recipes, my hubby and kids never notice the difference! :D

Hi my name is MaryAnn. I just came across Spark today and everything looks so useful and interesting.

I am 41yo, mother of 5 ranging in ages from 4yo to 23yo.

I have been trying years and years to lose weight. I guess I haven't been too serious about it but I really want to try this time.

I currently weigh 250 pounds. I have a goal weight of 130 pounds and a goal date of Dec. 9, 2010. I hope to make it.

Right now, I am hurting all over....knees, legs, hips, back, arms. I am slowly falling apart...deteriorating. I don't want to grow old and be like this.

That is all that i can think about writing right now. I really hope to find friends and support here. :)
