I'm a single (separated) mom of 5 young kiddos. Ready to finally loose all those pregnancy and post-pregnancy pounds for GOOD.

My Goals:
I want to look good again! I want to be able to fit into a size 6 or even an 8...was almost to an 8 last year, back up to a 12/14 right now. I would love to be able to go out and run a 5K or just hike with my kids without feeling huge or out of breath.

My Program:
1. I'm going to do this by cutting back on the junk. No more eating out, esp. at the burger joints. They are my big downfall.

2. 1200-1500 cals a day on average. This isn't a MUST..just a goal to shoot for.

3. Less sugar! My other big downfall is desserts! Donuts, cake, sugar in my oatmeal and cream of wheat, etc. Cookies! Chocolate of course!

4. Exercise!!! Shooting for 5 days a week of at least 30 min, at least 3 days at 45 minutes. There will be some strength exercises thrown in there as well. I'm very muscular, so want to keep the muscles in shape and boost my metabolism.

5. Support and Accountability! Hopefully this site will help!

Personal Information:
I'm from WA state, born and raised. I've also lived in Anchorage, Eugene, OR, Misawa, Japan, Dayton, OH, and Bossier City, LA. My husband is in the AF so we moved around some.

I've been married for over 13 years, but am now separated from my husband. We have 5 children together, all of which are with me full-time. It isn't at all easy being a single mother, let alone of 5! I have one boy who is 11, and 4 little girls ages 8, 5, almost 4 and 23 months.

I'm the ultimate Soccer Mom! My three oldest all play soccer and the younger two can't wait until they are old enough to. I even coached my daughter's team this past spring, and hope to coach again sometime.

I am shy, yet warm up quickly and easily and then can be the best friend ever. I love to laugh and have fun, just don't get very many opportunities lately to do so.

I love football...and other sports as well...but I have this THING for football! GO SEAHAWKS and DUCKS!!!

I graduate

    Ah I see, when I first looked at your page, it was pretty empty. I see you are living in the Northwest. Do ya love it there? Or one of the other places you lived?

    I'm a soccer dad! My daughter is 9 and loves soccer too. I don't think our children will have our weight problem as long as they continue to be athletes.

    Welcome to spark! Keep up the great attitude, and keep in touch!
