Amy Will this time.....

I am a happily married, Mom of 3 great kids! I love my life and my family, but I do NOT love my current weight, nor the way I look, nor the way I feel physically. I have battled this my whole life, but I am as big as I have ever been and I am now a diabetic. I am 43, and I am really starting to feel like a ticking time bomb.

I am a happily married, Mom of 3 great kids! I love my life and my family, but I do NOT love my current weight, nor the way I look, nor the way I feel physically. I have battled this my whole life, but I am as big as I have ever been and I am now a diabetic. I am 43, and I am really starting to feel like a ticking time bomb. Really not sure how many birthdays I will have left if I continue on this way. I am getting to the point where I am scared every day of dropping of a heard attack or stroke or not waking up one day!! I love my kids and my husband SO much and I do not want to leave him a widow and them without a mother. I struggle daily with staying on-track, mostly because I have been "dieting" my whole life, tried everything under the sun short of surgery (including SparkPeople), and am just plain sick of it!! I need to see results...I need daily motivation...I need for eating healthy to be something I can learn to enjoy, not something that is chore. I am looking forward to trying this again, and I hope to get my husband on board with me too!! I also hope I will make a few good friends along the way!!!

My Goals:
Well, it had been my grand plan to lose this weight BEFORE turning 40, but that fell to the wayside. Now, a dear friend has motivated me to pick myself back up and get back on the horse! Now I will just lose it before turning 44!! I have 3 beautiful kids that I want to see grow up!!! So far as my shorter term goals, I want to lose 50, just because that is a more reasonable number for me to start!!

My Program:
I amfollowing Spark Diabetic Plan and have just signed up for the Spark Coaching!!


Personal Information:
I live in central Ohio, between Columbus and Cleveland!! Love it here!!


Other Information:
I love my family--we do almost everything together!! I love music, especially JOSH GROBAN! I love pets! Especially dachshunds (I have 4!!) I love to paint! I recently had 3 of my paintings accepted into a local gallery, and actually sold one about 3 weeks ago!! =)

emoticon Hi, sweet Amy! Hope all is well! emoticon
The boys went to their annual summer camp for a whole week, so Ricky and I enjoyed a short-n-sweet vacation in our favorite tourist spot, Pismo Beach... where I unfortunately ate ALL the wrong foods! emoticon On the positive side, I actually used a hotel fitness room for the first time in my LIFE, hahaha! emoticon And I ran along the beach, too, which was *amazing*! So, next time I will know to be better prepared in the dining department.
How are things going? Keep Sparkin'! emoticon

Hi, Amy!
Re: our canyon, first I power-walk up (it is VERY steep) and then I do intervals of walking & jogging on the way back down. I read on SP that interval training is the best way to get your heart muscle fit. I'm hoping I can soon work up to jogging UP the canyon, but that just ain't happening yet, haha! Every time I get to the top, I'm amazed I even made it! emoticon
Our boys are ages 8, 10, 12 and 13. They will be in grades 3, 5, 7 and 8 this year. I'm really going to miss home schooling them, but honestly I was burned out. I hope they do well in their new school! Like yours, ours are active in sports: AYSO, Kung Fu, Little League. (It's good for them but a *lot* of driving for me!)
I hope you are having a great evening! I am sick again so trying to learn how to "stick with the program" when I'm under the weather. Thanks so much for your cheery note on my page!!! emoticon
