Janet

I am currently working on changing my lifestyle. I am overweight and have blamed it on pregnancies for years. Now my youngest child is 9 and the excuse is old.

When I was younger, I always said I did not want to be overweight like many of the people I know. However, here I am weighing more than those people do. I have seen the stress the weight has put on their bodies and the health issues they have had due to that weight. I don't want to go through the same thing.

I have recently noticed my children picking up my same eating habits and immediately want to break these habits. The best way...be an example.

I took a break due to some illness and injuries but am back and ready to go!

I have started and stopped my attempt to lose weight so many times it is ridiculous. I am commited this time to making a lifestyle change.

Other Information:
I love music of all kinds. I play the piano and would love to learn guitar but haven't managed that yet.

I love to read, to the point it could be called an addiction, which does not lead to an active lifestyle.

I am tired of being fat and the effects it has had on my life.

Hi Janet - thank you so much for stopping by and commenting on my blog - it really does mean a lot to me emoticon

You and I have similar family lifestyles - by boys are 10 and just started 5th Grade. they are also on a travel soccer team so we are all over the place.

Also reading to me is an addiction also - 2 many hours spent sitting on my butt - telling my kids "one more chapter" trying to change that and limit the amount of time i spend reading

Have a great day and it is nice to meet you emoticon
