I am way less confident in making a transformation then I was in 2011. Since then I have gained 20 pounds. My current weight is around 185 pounds.

I'm hoping to find some spark friends to encourage me as I'm really feeling fat, old and stuck right now.

I'm 48 years old, mother to two teens and an 11 year old. I'm certified as a teacher but have been unable to get a teaching job after taking off ten years to raise kids. I work full time as a paraprofessional (teachers' assistant) to cognitively disabled middle school kids.

We just adopted a ten week old yellow lab puppy to foster/raise to become a guide dog for the blind. She will be returned to the Occupaws organization when she is a year or a year and a half. She's adorable and I will post a picture soon!

I'm not sure of my plan right now, it just hoping for encouragement to get going on something!

Thank you!
