Karla's Time

Hey everyone! I joined SparkPeople so I can lose weight and get healthy by receiving inspiration as well as hopefully returning some.
My children have inspired me to get back on track with my weight loss.
I was in shape growing up. I showed my horses and loved to barrel race.
But after I quit smoking in 1986, a year after I married my wonderful husband, Bill, I began gaining weight. It was a sneak attack, you know, a couple of pounds here and there.

Hey everyone! I joined SparkPeople so I can lose weight and get healthy by receiving inspiration as well as hopefully returning some.
My children have inspired me to get back on track with my weight loss.
I was in shape growing up. I showed my horses and loved to barrel race.
But after I quit smoking in 1986, a year after I married my wonderful husband, Bill, I began gaining weight. It was a sneak attack, you know, a couple of pounds here and there.
Each time I was pregnant, I saw an excuse to eat more and more, and gain more and more. (I loved Hawaiian Pizza way too much!).
My oldest daughter, Melissa, introduced me to Sparkspeople. At first I only joined so I would have the tools to track my food intake and exercise. But I now realize how wonderful it is to also receive, and hopefully return, all the inspiration needed to continue on this journey!
As for my personal life, I have been married to my wonderful husband for 25 years, 26 on November 16th.
We have four terrific kids, Brad 23, Mark 22, Melissa 18 and Lauren 15. I also have two great daughter in laws, Danielle and Courtney, two beautiful granddaughters, Callie 5 and Kylie 1 months, and my beautiful grandson, Ryan, will be 1 on Oct. 6th! My family is my life and they keep me pretty darn busy.
I returned to college and am working on my BSW (Social Work), and am half way there.
I also shoot pictures for our local newspaper, mostly sports! I love to do crafts when I have time, which isn't often, and I also LOVE sports!!! I am a huge fan of the Biggest Loser, which inspires my weight loss! If you want to know anything else, or just want to talk, don't be shy...just ask!
