Hi, My name is Candy and I am a 40 year young mother of 3 wonderful sons! I have been married to my amazing husband for 10 years and am blessed to have the important things in life. God, family, love, and peace.

I began SparkPeople at the end of June 2010 because I began to see one of my sons get very heavy fast, he began to have health issues and it scared me! I thought I am the mom and I have to do something about this. At that time my family was not drinking very much water, eating very many fruits or vegies and we eat out a lot.

Since that time we have cleaned out the cabinets & fridge and replenished them with nuts, wholegrains, reduced fat crackers, chips, and lots of fruits and vegies. We no longer buy soda and we exercise as a family regularly. Going out to eat is an occasional treat and when we do we always try to make better choices.

SP has helped me in so many ways, by their daily messages, friends that encourage and good advice everywhere on SP! I have lost 23lbs and my family has losted some as well! I am changing up my goals and my program as of today and am excited to see where that leads me and my family!

Member Since: 6/29/2010

Fitness Minutes: 4,216

My Goals:
1. Eat mini meals every 2 hours

2. Increase exercise time by 10 minutes

3. Intensive exercise by adding faster pace and adding weights

4. Get on SP everyday

My Program:
Monday: Jog 3.25 miles in 40 minutes
Tuesday: S.E.T. class for 1 hour (using heavier weights)
Wednesday: Jog 3.25 miles uphill in 40 minutes
Thursday: Fit and Tone video 30 minutes
Friday: Jog 3.25 miles in 40 minutes
Saturday: S.E.T. Class 60 minutes

Personal Information:
I had 80 lbs to loose I am now down to 57 lbs! Eating right is not as hard as exercise can be when you don't feel like it! I really need to work on exercise to help my arms, hips, and boobs to go down.

Other Information:
I have read "The Spark" and it is great! My favorite part of SP is knowing that their is always someone like you and they need you as much as you need them!!!

    Keep up the emoticon work! You are definitely moving in the right direction.

    So what is your reward for reaching your first goal? Do tell! lol

    Yes, I did read that article. I'm at 171 now, and my goal is 160, so doing the 10% at this point wouldn't help, I don't think. I would have definitely used that theory from the beginning had I known about it! That sounds great for you, and I so know that you can do it!
    My husbands sister and her husband & 2 kids are coming to visit tomorrow & Sunday. I imagine that will entail grilling out and going swimming. Should be good times.
    I hope he takes you dancing, that sounds so nice! Enjoy!

    Thank you for your kind words!! Now that I'm getting closer to my goal weight *(my goal is 160, but Spark has me set at 150) it's getting to be more of a challenge. I use to say it's harder, but I decided to take that word out and replace it with "challenging"!

    I hope you and your family have a great weekend! Got anything fun planned?
