Hi! My name is Julie, and I'm a 34 year old, full-time working mommy to a 2 year old, active little boy. I joined Sparkpeople because I need some support. I've learned it's much easier to stay on track when you're accountable - and with that - doing it alone isn't easy.

Hi everyone,

My name is Sheryl and I'm a 32yo mommy of a 25mo daughter. I gained about 40 lbs during my pregnancy, but unfortunately didn't take very good care of myself afterwards. My goal is to lose 50 lbs so I can get my BMI back down to safer levels.

Take care!

I'm Amy, a 31 year old mother of a little boy who will be 3 in July, and another that just turned 12 in May. It's a crazy time for me, but it's a good one! Just started the journey again and hope to find good friends and motivation here.

Hi, my name is Malissa. I am a working mommy of a toddler who knows only 2 speeds -- fast and faster! Avery will be 2 in July, and she is one busy little girl. My husband and I like to try to take her on hikes or on a bike ride in the buggy whenever possible. She is also a *great* help in the garden and flowerbeds!

Hello everyone! I'm Katie, mother to a VERY active 1 1/2 year boy. This isn't my first trip around the block, but I'm ready for it to be my last. A couple of things led me back to spark. (1) I loved it! (2) My best friend and I just got back from the beach and I developed the pictures, not very pleased with bikini pictures (3) I need to be able to keep up with Braiden (my son).

I'm determined to change my lifestyle and I have the moral support of co-workers and family members. My siblings and mother have all gained too much weight as well so we're in this together.

Hi everyone! My name is Tonia and I am a 32 yo SAHM of 5. My baby, Naomi, is going to be 2 on June 8th. Naomi has always been clingy. I have only been able to leave her in a nursery a time or two with out her screaming, unless my 11 yo daughter is there with her. I really want to join a gym, but feel that it's almost pointless unless Naomi will stay in the nursery. That's my big issue right now. LOL. My other kids are 15 (boy, step-son), 13 (girl, step-daughter), 12 (boy, step-son) and my 11 yo daughter. We also have 3 dogs! :-)

I have 15-20 pounds left to lose, and I am losing it just to be fit and healthy. My family has definitely benefited from my changes.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Hello all! My name is Valerie and I have a 4 year-old(OCtober 16, so almost 5) named Zaiden and a 3 year-old(June 10) named Maddix. I will be 23 in July. I had them pretty young so I have my hands full. I wouldn't miss a minute of it! They are the greatest boys any mother could ask for!
I just signed up on this site a couple days ago. I am here to lose ALL my baby weight! It has been a difficult journey for me. I take care of my family first and by the time it is my turn, I end up too tired to bother! Now it's time for me! I can't wait to meet everyone! Good luck to all!

Hi... I signed up a few days ago but have barely had time to track my food let alone browse and post to the message boards! I have a very active 3 year old boy (well, he'll be 3 next week) and work full-time while my hubbie is a stay-at-home dad. I sometimes wonder why home expectations on a working mom are so much different than when the man works and the woman stays home. Anyways, hoping this site will help me lose the 50+ pounds I've gained since having my beautiful son and keep my sanity as I struggle with balancing work and home!

Cheers!

Hi! I'm Kelly! I have a four year old boy named Aidan and a one year old girl named Abby. They definitely keep my busy! I think that is why I was able to shed my pregnancy weight so easily after they were born! There's no time to sit still! However, those last ten pounds are still hanging on! I want to get rid of them once and for all!

Hello,

I'm Michelle and I have two boys, 3 & 5 (almost 6). I have about 30 lbs. to lose. I lost all but ten of it last summer but proceeded to put it back on and then some. We moved to right around Labor Day and I stopped exercising regularly for some reason. I believe exercise is the key to my success!

I look forward to seeing all of you around the team!

She keeps me hoping, but not enough to loose weight, just enough to get tired though! I need to loose pounds so I can find more energy to play with her and the others without all the pain and tiredness that I experience now.

Hello everyone....My name Latrice and I'm 32 years old. I live in a small town about 65 miles south of Atlanta, Georgia. I have a very active 3 year old son named Amare. I have struggled over the years to maintain my weight. Part of my weight gain is due to depression. My goal is to lose about 75 to 100 pounds.

Hi I am Tracy. I am in Canada. I have two kids. Paige who is 6 and Conor who is 2.5.

I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I'm out of control, and at times I'm hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

Hi, I'm the mom of two children. One that just turned 4 years old and one that will be two in September. I work full time. Have two dogs and one cat. Am frazzled most of the time :) My son (the preschooler)will actually be going to preschool this fall - if I can find the time to call pre-schools for information that is...... He's active, wound up, and I learn a lot from him and how to deal with his behavior. I have done weight watchers twice with good success except that I got pregnant shortly after reaching my goal weight both times! I don't have the time to invest in Weight Watchers now - so I was so happy to find this site! It is way better! I had an extra 25 pounds packed on after my last baby. I have managed to lose 10 with a little effort but am ready to get back into my smaller clothes. Am wondering if my belly can shrink back to flatness or if it will sag because of the pregnancies? My pooch is the problem! Thanks - went on too long. I look forward to participating.

I just joined a couple of days ago. I have three year old twins who keep me busy, but not so busy that I don't have time to eat everything in sight! LOL. I'm an avid runner and have lost most of the eighty-plus pounds I gained while pregnant, but started HRT a few months ago and have put on several pounds from that.

I tend to eat when the kids are napping and I'm "bored." I try not to start big projects b/c I don't know when they'll wake up and I hate not finishing something, so I tend to sit in front of the tv/read a book and EAT! I'm trying really hard to break myself of that habit. . . and also not to finish their food when they don't eat everything on their plates. It's HARD!

Hi, I'm Helen and mom to a 3 year old - Elliott. I started Weight Watchers in June, lost 50 lbs, and have been trying to maintain since Feb. But the maintaining is haaard, so I am giving sparkpeople a try. I find that food tracking makes all the difference for me.

Hi everyone! I just signed up yesterday and I'm still learning the ropes on the site. I have two boys, Aiden is almost 5 and Liam is just over 2. I hope that SparkPeople will help me stick to working out and eating right. I tend to burn out on exercise and gain back all the weight that I had lost. I am really ready to not struggle with this anymore.
