I am a 35 year old mother of two having trouble shedding the weight I gained with my second child and she is 6 now! I have been stressed and anxious and am guilty of making excuses for myself and it is going to stop.

I am going to get healthy and lose some weight! I will stop catering to everyone else with desserts. I will make low calorie versions of desserts once a week, but not every day.

A sparkfriend has this posted on her page and I found it so motivational that I wanted to add it to mine so I could read it daily:

"Consult not your fears, but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do." -- Pope John XXIII

    So glad to hear about your future plans, and that my words helped in some way :) Regarding the app for couch-to-5K, I actually downloaded Zombie 5K! It has a story that progresses each workout, and you have to run from Zombies, so that's pretty fun :) Thanks again for stopping by my page!

    Your little girl did great. Those things are not easy to shoot. emoticon Hope you have a great rest of the week and can find little ways to walk a little more or do a few little things while watching tv. It sounds like your days are pretty full. emoticon
