I am a SAHM with 2 boys, ages 10 & 14. I have struggled with my weight most of my adult life. 3+ yrs ago, I quit smoking! WOO HOO! I have multiple sclerosis and was hospitalized last year. After the terrible drugs I was given I decided I HAD to do as much as I personally could for my health. I can't do anything about having MS but I can lower my BP to a healthy rate, and eat right, and exercise more. So I decided to try Herbalife products in December of 2006. I have done well on them but I am concerned that I will have a difficult time transitioning from the shakes to real food when the time comes. Plus, the products are too expensive for me personally. As I cannot currently work, I have guilt spending the money I do on the products I use.
So I am hoping SparkPeople can help my transition. I am very excited about this new turn of events!

Fitness Minutes: 2,008

My Goals:
Lose the last 30 lbs or so(hopefully by Feb. 2007), Become tone, reduce body fat.
Control my BP with my diet.
Enjoy the remaining years as healthy as I can be and be the best role model for my children as I can possibly be!

My Program:
1-Calorie goal 1000-1200
2- Strength training -3x's /wk (30 mins.)
3- Water aerobics- 2x's/wk
4-Cardio 45-60+ mins. 5-7 days /wk
I am very motivated with exercise but I do suffer from severe fatigue so I do the best I can. Exercise helps me fight the fatigue I experience.

Personal Information:
My name is Lisa. I am from a small town in NE PA. I am happily married for 17+ yrs. We have 2 wonderful boys, 10 & 14. They are the center of our world but they are like night and day....completely opposite! They have very little in common, so yes, they argue ALOT!

Other Information:
"That which does not kill us, makes us stronger"

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are truly important.

    Partner..... I got the worst news of my life this summer. My mother died July 2nd, complications from diabeates. Oh, it is still so hard to talk about it.

    Please pray for my family, we are coming apart at the seams.
    This is so very difficult. All my Love, Kathy

    Being overweight is the pits, but being overweight and struggling with MS can make the pits feel bottomless - I know, as I was diagnosed 16 years ago... with MS, that is... I've struggled with the overweight part all my life! There are no easy answers, and no quick fixes - I just put my trust in God and then do the best I can, and it sounds like you do too.
    You're doing great - keep up the good work!

    Hello partner,
    I hope everything is okay with you. It has been a very long time since I've heard from you. I think you are my "silent partner" lol
    Things are okay on this end. Drop me a line- just so I know you are okay.
