I've battled with my weight long enough! SparkPeople has helped so much with making connections and motivating me. I also found It Works! and... it actually does work. I have lost 11 pounds and 3.5 inches.

I can help you do the same. Whether you just need a friend, need motivation, or need help... or are even interested in hearing about It Works and how you can get healthy and become financially free... I can help. Visit me at

Fitness Minutes: 16

My Goals:
I would like to one day be able to participate with my family and friends in the 5K's that are always happening in Austin. I would also love to run and chase my kids without getting exhausted and to spend more time outside. Right now I get so winded and sometimes pass out. I also have a goal to get my health in to tip top shape.

My Program:
I try to be active every day even if it is just for 20 minutes that day. I either ride a bike or go walking. If I can keep up with it, I just started doing Insanity! I also watch what I eat and make myself drink more water.

Personal Information:
I am from the Austin Texas area and still live just outside of Austin. I am an Assistant Manager of Customer Service and Operations for a multi-million dollar ecommerce company. My name is Misty and I am 32 years old.

Other Information:
I love to read but don't have much time for it lately. I love my children and the feeling of being able to be active won't be a dream anymore.

    Hang in there! I've been in that "plateau" stage for the last few weeks. Sometimes the body just needs some time to readjust. My scale seems to get stuck about every 10 pounds. My only advice is not to give up.

    I hope your new doctor is a good fit for you. That relationship is so important!

    Hope you have a great week this week!

    Hi Misty, How is your day going today? I am working on home work all day today lol. But I thought I'd drop by and say hello. I haven't heard from you since you send me an email plus I made a new profile. So Just wanted to check in! Have a great day!

    Hi Misty! I saw your post about needing accountability buddies. I added you as a friend, hope that's OK. I thought I could try to help in any way I can. And I can really use the support also.

    Keep pushing through. I know it's very hard and I can sense your frustration with trying to figure out how to take care of yourself when you are already stretched so thin. Just breathe and take it one day at a time.

    Also 32, and did the full-time Mom/Student/Employee thing myself. Felt like I had a ton in common with you when I saw your post on the 100+ page. It's a tough trip!! That's how I got where I am with my weight and haven't been able to shake it since I graduated 2 years ago. Keep going girl, if you are this driven to succeed (with work and school and kids all packed in somewhere), you will do it here too!

    Thanks for the offer of help. That's the one thing I love about this site, the encouraging people! Feel free to toss me a message if you need anything.
