mom. wife. friend. cook. maid . fashionista. coffee swiller. snark extraordinaire. chaos in a skirt.

I have been clicking that edit button for week now trying to decide what to put here in my introduction. I have so much to say that I am not sure what to say...

The basic story is that I am busy mom of 4 children. In moments of insanity I wish I had one more. I work in Social Services and it is very frustrating and rewarding.

I have been a member of SparkPeople since 2006 but have only been truly active the past month. My decision to truly commit stems from just tired of feeling to bad about myself. I have terrible self esteem and I hope that confidence is what I gain in this journey. I am extremely hard on myself. I have spent the past few years taking excellent care of my family and not myself.

I am working on me and have decided that in order to be the best mom to my children I have to take care of myself and love myself too.

Physically I hope to lose at least 50 pounds and look and FEEL good.


Member Since: 4/5/2006

Fitness Minutes: 2,047

My Goals:
-to lose about 50 pounds
-to be healthier
-to be confident and feel good about myself!

My self esteem is at an all time low and just want to feel good.


My Program:
Just trying to make good choices. I acutally have a pretty clean diet overall...I just have issues with portion sizes. I am trying to work in that.

I workout at least 5 days a week. I walk 2 times a day at work and hit the gym for some cardio 5-6 days a week. I also strength train 3 days a week. I use the strength training program outlined in, The New Rules of Weightlifting for Women.



Personal Information:
I am mom to 4. I work full time inside and outside the home. I live in the Southwest.

    They say, "You can't give a smile away; it always comes back." The same is true of a kind word or a conversation starter. What goes around, comes around.

    Just thought I'd thank some of my friends and teammates for their support!

    And spark a little Spark love too.

    Spark rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. Melody Beattie

    I am grateful for my spark friends and team mates!

    "October gave a party;
    The leaves by hundreds came-
    The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
    And leaves of every name.
    The Sunshine spread a carpet,
    And everything was grand,
    Miss Weather led the dancing,
    Professor Wind the band."
    -   George Cooper, October's Party


    Let's watch our weight FALL this month with the leaves!

    "There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."~Kenneth Blanchard
