More than a Number on the Scale

Hello. My name is Mandi and I've been a member of Sparkpeople since November 2012. Joining SP really was a God sent since I spent the last year and a half of living in a VERY toxic environment while my husband and I saved up money for our own house.

We moved into our new place on 1/15.

I really enjoy being a member of the community and a team leader to some teams. The support available on Sparkpeople is very comforting and helps keep me accountable.

Hello. My name is Mandi and I've been a member of Sparkpeople since November 2012. Joining SP really was a God sent since I spent the last year and a half of living in a VERY toxic environment while my husband and I saved up money for our own house.

We moved into our new place on 1/15.

I really enjoy being a member of the community and a team leader to some teams. The support available on Sparkpeople is very comforting and helps keep me accountable.

I am a caregiver and when you are a caregiver you tend to look after yourself LAST. I worked with at-risk students in alternative schools for 5 years before I chose to stay at home and work with my own toddler. Finding time for myself is a daily challenge.

My daughter is turning three in February 2014 and my husband and I sadly have been diagnosed with secondary infertility for around 1 to 2 1/2 years. I even started a Sparkteam in case anyone needs any support (like I have felt I have needed in the past). There's still hope since we haven't had any huge devastating diagnosis yet, but it is a well known fact that weight plays a role in these things. Since I've been overweight my whole life, I really would like to get a handle on things. We were very lucky to even get pregnant with my daughter.

We're just trying to live healthy one day at a time to help control my husband's diabetes, my weight, and set some positive examples for my daughter so she doesnt grow up with the same bad habits we saw while we were growing up.

Thank you so much for giving me that ray of sunshine. I am glad that my blogs inspire you. The reason that I write them is that I am incredibly thankful for the little things in my life and it is my way of giving praise to God. Hugs, kathy
