Hi! I'm Lori and I'm a 37 year old stay at home housewife and mom to a 7 year old girl and 6 year old boy. I'm tired of sitting around waiting for my life to belong to me. I'm tired of wanting to change and doing nothing. I joined Babyfit, Spark's "sister" when my son was 4 months old and had great results. After I stopped nursing him, I joined Spark and had great results yet again, but after a month and a half just quit. Why? I knew that exercising, getting great motivation and inspiration from my Spark community and eating right worked. This time, I'm here to stay. This is my life and I'm going to live it the way I want to, healthier. I started out at 240 pounds and lost 14 pounds with Spark in Spring of 12', gained back 4 and started this time at 230. My goal is to get to the same weight as my husband at 145 and to be healthier, play with my children without getting tired, wear knee socks and fit into my wedding ring again. I look forward to meeting new people who are also on various parts of their journey to being fit.

I had a lot of success three years ago when I was working hard and trying. Then I let something get me down and I stopped. I am back now and ready to never let anyone or anything get me down. I can do this!

I am now at 240.2 lbs and have fallen into an unhealthy lifestyle. I refuse to give up and am now working harder than ever to improve my body, health, and mindset about life.

    How was your time with your daughter? It's always good to spend individual time with the kids. I did that a lot with mine too. I had a great weigh in. Makes me even more committed to staying on plan this week.

    Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
    You won’t find glory at the center of safety, but at its edge.
    You won’t find love at a place where you are covered,
    but in the space where you are exposed. You gotta take some risks.
    You have to not only pick up the dice, but roll’em. So go ahead,
    take the gamble. You have nothing to lose except the chance to win.
    Life is not long enough to spend it on the sidelines.
    ~Neale Donald Walsch~

    If you don’t get it, you can’t change it. If you don’t acknowledge it, you can’t fix it. If you don’t own it, you can’t improve it. Stephanie Staples
