I am a 44 year old Mom of 5 boys ages 17, 15, 12, 10 and 3. I've been married for 20 years to my wonderful and supportive husband! We have a busy lifestyle with all our activities!

God blessed us with our 5th baby in 2009! We were surprised to be new parents again in our 40s but he will keep us young! I am working hard to re-lose this weight! And to keep it off this time!! It's a new phase in my life of having a preschooler at home again after having all 4 older boys in school for a couple years!

Don't belong to the gym anymore (dropped it during pregnancy 2008-2009 and now feel it's too expensive when I'm not into an exercise routine) so I gotta do this at home! Once I get a routine established I might decide that I can splurge on the gym membership again!

Member Since: 8/27/2007

Fitness Minutes: 6,092

My Goals:
I want to get back to my "real" size before my oldest son's highs school graduation!

I want to fit into the clothes I bought 7 years ago when I previously lost 20 pounds (was down to 125) for my 20 year class reunion! I want to look good and feel good! I also want to be a positive role model for my boys about how to take care of yourself!

My Program:
When I lost about 20 pounds for my reunion, I was working out at the gym for about 2 hours almost every day for at least 4 months.

Now I've had another baby, don't belong to the gym, and am having trouble getting back into a workout routine.

I'm working on eating "cleaner" and slowly increasing my exercise!

Personal Information:
~Michele: HT: 5'0"

Goal - 120 by 5/1/13

Other Information:
6/10 - Just got all my hair chopped off!! Got tired of the long hair and always pulling it up because it's too hot/humid to wear it down so I'm back to short hair! (I'll try to get a picture posted soon.)

    emoticon Happy second Sparkversary! What an amazing accomplishment to have stayed with your new lifestyle for two whole years! I see how fantastic you have done as your tracker has just moved on down! While 95% of people who started with you QUIT, you loved yourself enough to stay with this and change your lifestyle. I know they sure wish they had done as much!!!! emoticon This third year will be even better! emoticon

    Thanks for adding me as a "friend!" I'm still trying to figure out all the community features... I read your last blog entry... I'm in the same boat after a long weekend. Too much food, not enough exercise, and my kids had a late start for school today - and well, I'm not making it to the gym today either! Ugh. I stay at home with my little guys... I know that day will come all too soon when they are all in school. Gotta run - well, get busy with the rest of my day anyway. Have a great afternoon!
