I am looking to lose a LOT of weight, so that I'm not the "fat mom" when my son starts school. I think about the way that I am teaching my son on his self-esteem and then I think about how I look at myself and I realize I'm not "practicing what I preach". I realize that if I keep saying mommy is fat to him, then one day he'll tell me that I'm fat. I just need a LOT of work in a LOT of areas to achieve the goals that I've set for myself (realistic or not!).

Member Since: 5/22/2008

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
My goals are to be able to strip for my husband without being emabarrassed about the fat jiggling (sorry mom). I have to admit that is probably one of my husbands goals too.
I would like to be able to keep up with my 3 year old and to be able to have another little one soon and not have to worry about weight complications (and looking pregnant instead of just fat would be a bonus!)

My Program:
My mom and my sister are going to be my biggest program considering they belong too. I belong to the YMCA but don't really go, because of various excuses I make. I guess whatever will work will be my plan.

Personal Information:
My name is Holly and I'm from KCMO. I am a nurse and a mom to a wonderful but exhausting 3 year old and a wife to an equally exhausting husband of 4 years. I've tried thousands if not millions of times to lose weight, but an excuse always comes up, usually I blame work, but I'm really just lazy. If you can't tell I like to use humor to disguise how disgusted I am with my weight. I'm always known as the funny one because I can always make fun of myself before someone else does. It's hard to tell my son that mommy used to play sports in high school and in college because I don't look like I did once upon a time.

Other Information:
I'm a tom boy at heart and hate wearing makeup, but I do. My favorite movie in the entire world is a League of their own, and I can probably say the entire script by heart if you were to ask me.

    Hey there! And welcome to Spark People. Just wanted to pop by and invite you to join one of the -villes. Basically, they are towns you join and leave each time you drop within a certain weight range. I'm the mayor of 280-ville and 220-ville, so ill wait at the gate to encourage you on to the Golden Archway to the south. In the meantime, just do a search of Spark teams for "ville" and all the buzzing communities will come up. They are a great motivator to help you to your goal -- especially when you get on the road and start speeding through the towns! There are no tickets given on the Ville Highway! Hope to see you! - Sherry :-)
