My name is Emmy. I am a 32, and I am a widowed mother of three wonderful boys, ages 13, 5, and almost 2. My husband was killed 7/3/09 in a tragic accident, and the past 10 1/2 months have been really hard on us all. I am currently enrolled in the vet tech program @ penn foster college, and loving it. Up until my husband's death I was doing very well maintaining my weight, but stress, sadness, and every day life has taken a toll, and all the weight I worked so hard to lose returned, and I can't get the motivation to start working on the road to losing it again. My husband was my biggest fan and always supported my in every thing I did, and with him not here I have lost a lot of my motivation, and I need to find that again. I need to lose the weight, not only for myself, but for my boys, i am all they have, and I want to be more active for them and be able to be a bigger, more active part of their lives. I hope to meet so great new friend along this weight loss trip I am about to take!!!!!

My Goals:
I am looking to get in better shape, I want to be a more active part in my kids lives, I want my kids to learn from me and make better life choices, I just want to feel better about myself and the choices I make.

My Program:
I want to get back into cooking more than I am now, I want to take walks daily with my kids, I need to drink more water, and not eat when I have nothing better to do.

Personal Information:
I am from Palm Bay, Florida. It is a smaller town located in Brevard county. I am currently enrolled in online classes to get my degree as a vet tech. I am loving the classes so far.

Other Information:
I love country music, my kids are my life, I used to own two beautiful horse, but due to money I had to sell them. I hope one day I will be reunited with them. I love to go 4-wheeling, and playing in the mud =). I don't really have time to watch very much tv, but I love deadliest catch, the vampire diaries, tori and dean, and dancing with the stars. My favorite all time movie is the blind side. That was such a great movie.

    Hi, Emmy! I wanted to welcome you to spark people and to the 30 somethings team. I read your page, and honestly you are an inspiration to me. You have beautiful boys and are a motivation to me as a mother. You have a lot to handle on your own. I am very sorry to hear about your husband. I know you can do this. We are all here for you.
