I am a 40 year old mother of three who is tired of sitting on the side lines watching my kids play! I want to play with them and my weight has kept me from that! I have gotten to the point where everything is painful and I am tired of feeling this way! So glad I found Spark People to help me in my journey!
UPDATE: This has been the toughest, but most rewarding journey of my life! I am finally important to myself and nothing is getting in the way of that again! I finally realized that if I don't take care of me -- NO ONE else is going to and I am important to a lot of people including ME!

My Goals:
I am looking to lose over 100 lbs and to start to enjoy exercise. My kids are almost grown and I feel like I have missed out on a lot of their life because of my weight and the limitations it has put on me! I am tired of feeling tired and hurting all the time and have decided it is MY TIME to do something about it!

My Program:
I originally started on ediets and during my search for a recipe, ran across SparkPeople and I am so so so glad I did! It has sent me in the direction I need to be going instead of wandering aimlessly around in today's world of dieting! This is not a diet! This is my life and I am fighting for it!
I have gone 90% organic and eat as clean as I possibly can, although I do still struggle greatly with the cravings, but I am still learning and I am gaining ground!

Personal Information:
I have been a state licensed day care provider in Iowa for almost 12 years now. You can check out my web page if you want www.kidsaquariumdaycare.com

Other Information:
I am also a "GREEN" fanatic!

    Thank you for reading my blog "Do I get Spark points for dreaming about exercising?"
    I'm happy to say I didn't dream about exercising last night again and slept a lot better! emoticon

    Thank you for reading, and commenting on my "Man, what a great day!" blog... Staring at the empty locker all I could think of was I wonder if I'm brave enough to walk to the front desk dressed like this... lol... Thank God I opened the locker next to mine, cause I would've done it lol... Talk about living in your truth lol...

    I'm glad you had a good laugh with me... emoticon

    P.S. I added you as a spark friend...
