I am 35 years old, married, and I have two boys, a 15 year old and a 3 year old.
I wasn't overweight as a child, but gained as a teen and was overweight in junior high and high school. I didn't know what healthy habits were. My idea of exercise was turning pages in a book! In college, I lost a lot of weight by not eating much. I was at a healthy weight, but I wasn't healthy.
When I met my husband I picked up a lot of his eating habits and thought I would always be "skinny" and though the pounds crept up over the past 10 years, I was in denial about it. I thought I was eating and exercising ok, and made excuses about why I was struggling to lose weight.
I have learned how to eat so much better for my body. Exercising however, is still not my friend. We have a love-hate relationship. I have to force myself to workout. I am at a healthy weight now after being on SP for a few months, but I will always have to work on the fitness aspect.
After struggling with infertility for 2 years, I found a specialist in June 2012 that helped me to fix my diet even more and she swore it would help me to get pregnant. I wasn't overweight but the foods I was eating were contributing to a hormonal imbalance that prevented me from getting pregnant. I am happy to say that it was a success and I have my 3 year old now. We are trying again for number 3!

    Hey there,
    I'm sorry work is so consuming. I hope you and the boys are doing well. I'm reaching the end of SP I think. Some of its usefulness has gone for me. I don't practice the way of eating promoted on here and I can track my food on several other apps just as easily. Not to mention that many members are judgmental and I don't need that kind of influences on my stress levels. I'm going to cut down to visiting Reaching our Goals team mostly and logging food here. If I disappear I will sparkmail you my personal address if you don't have it already. Maybe add each other to fitbit or something to challenge and support each other in a way that fits in with our busy lives.
