I found SparkPeople on August of 2008, when I stepped on the scale and realized I was at my heaviest point ever (even when I was pregnant)! Time to get down to business! I lost my dad at the age of 55, and that scared the living daylights out of me! I could get hit by a bus tomorrow, but I want to know that I did everything that I could to take care of myself and live a healthy lifestyle. For not only me, but my kids and husband.

I joined WW on Jan 23, 2013. I now have lost another 17lbs, for a total 26lbs from when I joined SparkPeople. You all are helping me do that! Thank you, way in advance!! :)

Good luck to everyone! I wish you well! Thanks for visiting my page! We are all in this together!!

My Program:
TURBO FIRE!!! LOVE IT! I hate when I miss workout. We got a new basketball goal for Christmas 2011 and so we spend a lot of time outside (weather permitting) shooting the basketball. I had lost 9lbs (fluctuating between 9 and 15lbs lost)since I joined SP. I joined WW on Jan. 23, 2013 and so far, it's been successful. Up to this point, I have lost 17lbs more lbs. Going strong and have no intentions of stopping there!!! :-)

Personal Information:
My name is Amy and I am 39 years old. I have 3 beautiful children ages 10, 9, and 7 and a wonderful husband of 14 years (Phew!) on Sept 24th. My father passed away 9 years ago with diabetes and heart disease. It has terrified me so much it makes me think about things in a whole new perspective.

Other Information:
I love being with my family, reading, playing in my yard (yes, yardwork), and getting outdoors. Love spring and fall, and hearing the laughter of my children. LOVE to cook! I am a 3rd shifter, so sleep isn't 2nd nature to me, and I'll take it when I can get it, but I love it!!!

    Hi there Miss Amy! What is the deal? You post on my spark page that you are all finally better and now you have a sick kid again! You must have jinxed it :) I'm so sorry. It's no fun having your babies sick :(
    I AM SO PROUD OF YOU!!!! You are doing amazing with WW! I would definitely count the weigh-ins at home......who cares how much your clothes weigh, right? emoticon I knew you could do it! 9 lbs is fantastic emoticon
    We are doing fine here......just plugging along :)
    Have a good day and I hope your sick one is better very soon! Talk to you later :)

    You lost 15 lbs already?! When did you start? You are so amazing!! You are going to hit your goal weight in no time emoticon I am so proud of you emoticon
    I am just hovering around the same weight. I need to get my behind in gear and get busy again! You are my inspiration......I'm going to follow your awesome example!
    What would I do without you? I agree that it feels like we have been friends forever and we will continue to be friends always emoticon
    Have a great day and I will talk to you soon!

    Hi Amy! I have been so worried about your daughter!! I am glad to hear she is doing better. How scary to have her hurting so bad!! Poor kid :( I'm glad to hear you are feeling better too. There is definitely something nasty going around....way worse then the normal flu! Stay well my friend :)

    Good for you for joining WW!! I think they have a fantastic program. I have done it many times emoticon At our WW here, the lady that weighs us in and does the classes (on the nights I can go) is a total witch. I think I can handle her and then after a few months I decide I can't take it any more and I quit. I did the online version and really liked's like sparkpeople only without all the wonderful people and their support. But, I needed more motivation which is what I get at SP. I know you can do it though! I will be cheering you on all the way emoticon emoticon emoticon Keep me updated on your fabulous progress!

    My kids are in school today, can you believe it?! It has been so cold here that I feel like an ice cube

    emoticon and im really hating it! Every morning our temp is anywhere from -2 to 5 degrees. It only warms up to about 15-20 if we are lucky! Nasty, I tell ya! I would like to move to Arizona right about now emoticon emoticon
    Have a great day today! Stay in and stay warm :) Just a tip.....the first couple of days on WW is the hardest. After that it gets lots easier and you will start figuring things out fast. You will do awesome, I just know it!!

    Talk to ya later :)

    Hey there my dear! I am so sorry to hear that you were so sick Saturday.....that is SO not fun! I sure hope you are doing better today :) We probably can't kick this because we can't take the time to just relax and be sick. We still have to take care of everyone. The joys of being a mom :)
    My kids actually started back to school on Jan. 2. They weren't too thrilled and I wasn't really ready either but what do ya do? Did yours start back today?
    I am glad I am back on here too! Thank you for not giving up on me and for always being there for me :) I sure don't know what I would do without you and all of your support!! It's been super hard since my nephew died on Halloween. I have been in such a deep depression and can't seem to get myself out of it. I am trying though and you are helping a lot :)
    I need to know how you manage to work like you do and still find time to workout?! It looks like I may need to get a new job and I am really worried about not having the time or energy to continue the workouts. Tell me your secrets :-)
    Have a great day today and know that someone in Idaho is thinking of you!!!

    Oh, by the way, I am SOOO VERY SAD!! Hubby is going to Kansas City at the end of the month and I CAN'T GO!!! No wives invited this time :( What the heck is up with that?! I would have been so fun to try to get together. Maybe next time......
