Well then, let's try this again.
I am a 38 year old married woman from Ontario who does not have any kids.
I work full time and am always busy. I wish I could slow my life down a bit...that would be a welcome change.

I feel like change is needed. I REALLY REALLY need a change. I need a life readjustment or sorts. I struggle to be positive. This past year has been really trying for me, and I feel really tired. I need to dust myself off and shake myself up a bit, so this is one way that I am going to start.
Another Sparker had this on her page, and it was something interesting to think about:
Losing weight is hard,
Maintaining weight is hard,
Staying fat is hard;

I found the following on Jinjerly's page, and it was a help to me, as I have been wondering how to get the "Lost ---Pounds" icon on my page for the last 4 months.
If you want the "LOST __ POUNDS WITH SPARKPEOPLE PICTURE" on your page, follow the instructions below:
1) Click "Edit My Spark Page" on the upper right side of your screen.
2) Then, click on one of your three pictures on the left side of your screen. A pop up box will appear.
3) Click on the link at the top right hand side of the page that says, in small letters, "also choose from our success gallery."

Member Since: 9/29/2007

Fitness Minutes: 6,260

My Goals:
Here are some treat goals:
Down 10: Increase motivation
Down 20: Fit into a few more pairs of jeans in my closet

I need to think about this. What would motivate me?

My Program:
Go to the gym in the morning before work. Even on my most tired days, I can still walk on the treadmill and watch TV, can't I?
Leaving earlier helps me miss the traffic too.

Try to eat better, even when not exactly on the programme.

Exercise 5 days a week. Let's see how this goes!

Personal Information:

Other Information:
I like Wally Lamb books.
I need more time to myself.
I am tired of renovating my house. I need my life back. I hate eating dinner sitting cross-legged on the kitchen floor.

    OMG I had to laugh about your comment on my "treats" on my food I was reading it I was eating some Dove Dark Chocolate candy...

    I was really having a good December until Thursday...and since Thursday...I've been pretty much out of hand as far as the treats go...

    Fortunately I did do an awful lot of cardio since Thursday I'm hoping my weigh in tomorrow isn't too awful...but I really don't deserve it to go well so I'm not expecting it to go well...

    But yes I do allow myself some treats but I try to redirect myself as soon as I am mentally able...because I've been on a rollercoaster weight ride my whole life and I really do prefer being a size 4 to a size 14:) and I know how fast I can put on weight if I don't get ahold of myself and that's why spark people helps me...It keeps me accountable...

    Thank you for the comment on my blog and your suggestion.My family is just toxic...its kind of hard to explain!Its been going on for years and years.Sometimes you just have to cut out or limit the bad things in order to have peace.Thats where I'm at.I cant control them so I just try to control what I allow in my life...does that make sense?

    ROFL!!! I love your blog comment! Yeah, I would be super offended if I got a diet book of any kind without having asked for it, I mean how rude to assume someone would want that as a gift?? Why don't you just inscribe it "You're looking pretty hefty. Perhaps you could get off your big butt and follow this plan!" *rolling eyes*
