I have found myself searching many diets and many programs and nothing seemed to fit what I wanted to accomplish. I am at a time in my life where it is finally my turn to do things over, and do them right. I am a big fan of support and encouragement from others in the same situation, so I will be cheerleader for any and all who need the motivation! This isn't easy and I don't want to have surgery because I KNOW I can do this without that kind of intervention--and, it doesn't always work and I do know this from friends and loved ones who had the surgery. I am finally taking the first step to get it done!

*****It is now several years yet again, now 2011, and I am trying to get back on track once again. Do I get points because I keep trying? I hope so. Maybe my situation will change to help me reach my goals....here is to a new year and a new me.....

I disappeared for awhile because I let life get in the way of what I had wanted to do here. I found my way home and now I am going to remind myself everyday to be here and get moving.



Member Since: 6/5/2007

Fitness Minutes: 776

My Goals:
Goals:
1. drink more water
2. walk every day
3. journal my feelings, behaviors, and results
4. Remember the bathing suit!!!
5. To not look 39, but rather look healthy!!!


My Program:
I have just started, so this will be updated as I figure it all out. I love to walk and have a home gym and lots of stairs to the upstairs here, so this is all going to help me put it all together bit by bit.

For starters, I am not allowing myself to sleep in every morning and forcing myself to rise and greet the day!

I was a stay home mom for awhile but after my 3rd child, I realized I needed to get back to work for my sanity. I now have 4 and love working, enjoy my time home again but definitely miss the adult conversation and intellectual stimulation.



Personal Information:
My name is Marie, and I am a native of Chicopee, MA and I was born in Worcester, MA. I lived in TN in 2006 and loved it, and hope to move back there someday.....I feel so at home in the south.
If anyone wants to make pen pals, or want to vent on a frustrating food weakness day, or want encouragement for their efforts, feel free to write me here at Sparkmail and let me know you read about me here. I'm a great listener and never judgemental. Good luck to everyone here!


Other Information:
I am a crime novel buff, along with movies of all kinds, enjoying being a mom of 4 at 39 and love cooking and gardening--gardening is a great exercise because of all the bending, squatting, and work you do...you can also find me at the playground with the kids because it is a great way to get them out and running as well. Also enjoyed are biking, walking, swimming, hiking, camping, and almost anything that is family fun!

    VERY stressed out with work of late. A lot of billing conundrums with deadlines to meet that are not realistic. I have wanted to chow down on everything in the house, especially later at night when everyone has gone to bed. I have been going through a lot of relationship problems as well, rather large ones, and that has affected things as well. My mood has been very low. My energy level has been so low that when I do make it home from work and the kids are in bed, I am so exhausted I can't bring myself to get out and walk. Working has kept me from pigging out so to speak, so I suppose not gaining weight is a plus, but not losing is dragging me down as well. I need to rise above the sadness so I can be productive in my weight loss goals once again.

    I am not faring too well with this. Time escapes me so quickly, because of work and school. The kids demand so much from me. My husband is driving over the road and gone for indefinite periods of time. My parents have been a lifesaver. So can I try this again? It is now 2011, so I am hoping I can really, truly make this happen once and for all.
