Life Begins at 40!

My name is Annie, I'm a 40-year-old mom of two teenagers and I'm looking for a place where I can just laugh, cry, vent and share with others during my journey to finally finding peace with myself.

I found my way to sparkpeople.com after picking up People's annual "How They Did It: Half Their Size" issue; I've picked up this issue every year and always say, "This year, I will get motivated" only to forget the magazine in a drawer or under a pile of newspapers. However, I was ...
My name is Annie, I'm a 40-year-old mom of two teenagers and I'm looking for a place where I can just laugh, cry, vent and share with others during my journey to finally finding peace with myself.

I found my way to sparkpeople.com after picking up People's annual "How They Did It: Half Their Size" issue; I've picked up this issue every year and always say, "This year, I will get motivated" only to forget the magazine in a drawer or under a pile of newspapers. However, I was reading how one woman utilized sparkpeople.com in her weight loss journey and decided that I would check out the site when the time dictated. That time was today.

I stepped on my wiifit board and was surprised to hear "OH! It appears the weight limit has been exceedeed.....blahblahblah". I was shocked. I know I have gained a lot of weight but never expected a video game to reject me. After some tears I picked up the People magazine and read the article again. That is what brought me here.

I'm not the typical mom - I love loud, angsty music and tattoos (I have three of them) but I have an awesome sense of humor and I'm determined to make this work!
