I LOVE being a mom, but am not too pleased with what happened to my body after having a child every other year (2001, 2003, 2005). I joined Spark because I wanted to get fit and be a good role model for my kids, never see #s like 220 on the scale again, and just plain feel good about myself!

I had always been a little on the chunky side, but after gaining over 60 pounds with each of my pregnancies I was downright fat. I finally admitted it and it was the best present I could have given myself. The realization came that it wasn't just going to go away, so I laced up my sneakers and RAN! With the help of Spark I lost all the weight and more and felt awesome. I am now in better shape than I was in highschool!

It's tough fitting in exercise with 3 young kids. It is my biggest challenge, but when I'm committed I MAKE IT WORK.

Words to live by :D

now whip it
into shape
shape it up
get straight
go forward
move ahead
try to detect it
it's not too late
to whip it
whip it good
