I understand new seasons of life. We have four kids and my youngest is 14, entering her sophomore year in high school. I'm savoring every moment with her. I know how fleeting they are. Now is the time for you to take care of mama! This is the place to do it. I'm delighted that you've joined us here. Welcome aboard!!

thanks! I love several of those already, but will check out some of the others. Now that my teenagers will be gone, I do want to incorporate more whole grains and vegetarian cuisine into our diet, as I know that will help in the overall weight goals for both me and my husband.

Welcome!

I love cooking too, and one of my favorite things to do is to find beautiful, healthy recipes to prepare. I also look for recipes that I can modify to include more fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains. Here is a list of some of my favorite healthy cooking blogs:

Stats: Female, 5'4", 28 years old.

Goal: From 152 (07/24/2011) to 125 by December, 2011. DONE! December 4th weighed in at 124. In 2012 I've been maintaining around 122, which is a thirty pound loss. My BMI has gone from 26.1 to 20.9 since following the Spark plan!

Hi everyone, my name is Melinda. As I write this I am about to watch my younger son graduate from high school, and will have an empty nest in the fall. I have not been able to keep on top of my weight and I am now just plain fat! I want to get in shape, lose about 40 pounds, and find a way to keep it off. I love to cook and that is probably part of the problem, ha ha. I thought maybe joining a community would help give me some moral support. Sometimes it's the little things that can make a diet (and fitness) plan succeed, and having friends to lean on is a big help to achieving goals.

I am excited to start making friends here and hope as the weeks go on I will have positive news to share. Thanks for reading, and hope to meet many others of you soon.
