I've gained way too much weight since my children were born. 20 years of just not feeling healthy! I'm tired of it, and hope that I can connect with some friends here to help me take it off. I'm a mom of 2 girls, 26and 23 and have a wonderful hubby who isn't the most supportive of my trying to lose weight (Guess I should be happy that he loves me the way I am....) I also have 2 great dogs that keep me on my toes. I am looking to reevaluate my life style to make sure I am around for my grandchildren. I look forward to fitting into a size 10, and making new friends!

Member Since: 1/8/2008

Fitness Minutes: 12,635

My Goals:
To be healthy! I guess my goal is to take it one day at a time. To log on daily to keep track of my progress, and to succeed for the first time in a long time.

My Program:
I need to exercise more. Living in snowy MA makes it difficult at times to get outside to walk the dogs, but I hope to do something daily to burn those calories!

Personal Information:
I'm a born and bred New Englander. I live in Western MA. I would love to connect with others that have similar likes and live in the area. I have a freshman in high school, and a sixth grader. I'm VERY lucky in that they are great kids. I met my hubby in the Bahamas 25 years ago, and the girl in that bikini just doesn't exist anymore.

Other Information:
Scrapping is my passion. I'm also big into rubber stamping. I've been a
Stampin' Up demonstrator for over 10 years and love the creative outlet that scrapping offers. I taught 2nd grade for 12 years, and am now a substitute teacher at our middle school. I tell everyone I'm on my 14th year of maternity leave! I love the freedom that subbing offers and have no plans to go back to teaching full time. I love being able to participate in all my kids activities in school without having to worry.

    Hi JOANNAGAIL ! I enjoyed looking at your Spark page! Bless you for adopting your dog from the shelter! That's where we got Belle and she has been such a joy in our lives. She has a few "issues", but don't we all??!
    Take care!

IMagine that a Red Sox fan from Joysey LOL:-) doesn't get any better than that. Your pups are adorable and LOL about you comparing them to Ortiz and Manny and Lowell.
