Not sure if anyone is still on this team, but I thought I would try. My name is Cassie, and I'm the mom of a busy 12 year old.

Hello, I am mom to 2 amazing boys, 5 and 6. They are so fun...And energetic...I always say that I would be so skinny if only I had 1/8th the energy that they do. I am trying to focus a bit more on myself so that I can keep up with them.

Hi,
I have been a member of this team for a while, but never introduced myself. I am blessed with 2 boys, ages 8 and 11. I marvel at the world they see and am lucky to be a part of it! (Even though it is very LOUD at times.) I am looking forward to their summer break and taking hikes, playing in the park and going swimming. Also looking forward to BBQ some healthy fare, they especially like carrots in a foil pack.
Glad to join the journey with other women who are privvy to the secrets of a boy's world!

Life is a roller coaster! Be that person who holds someone hand in the dark tunnel and shares a knowing look up the high peaks. Most of all, be that person who throws hands up in the air and screams for joy!

Hello everyone. My name is Patricia and I joined this team a couple of years back. I've been M.I.A. for a long time but now I am back. I am the mother of three boys. I think having three sons is a blessing and I see some people are more blessed than I am :) Anyway, I am looking forward to getting to know as many of you as I can. I hope everyone had a wonderful day.

Hello to all I have 4 boys still at home ages 9,11.15, and 16. And a 20 year old.
Together they come up with such great ideas like seeing which animals on our farm could swim...they dove after a couple of them. This went on for weeks since they would quit as soon as they were caught and then wait for the next opportunity.
My boys all hunt, fish, and ride 4-wheelers across our 31 acres of mountain and yes my hair is turning gray. I learned very quickly... Noise is Good, Quiet is Bad.
No day is a boring day
Looking forward to hearing more about your boys.

Everyday is a new day, with new beginnings, and new chooses.

Hello, My name is Beckie. I am just starting my journey here and hope this to be a great team. I have 4 boys ages 6, 12, 14, and 14 (no twins). I also have 5 girls. They are such a joy to have, well most of the time. I can't say I am a fan of the attitude that comes with the older ages, but I will take it all as a package. They are great kids and I am told the boys are very respectful to others, of course, when I'm not there most of the time. Anyway, We have lots of time to get to know one another. I am very excited to be on this journey with all of you.

Always a better tomorrow...

Hello All! My name is Mirela and I am new to this site and this group. I have a 6 yo boy that is very sweet and not too much trouble. He likes NinjaGo videogames and LEGO, but we also spend a lot of time biking and playing outdoors.
My goal is to get back in shape and prepare for another pregnancy. Also I need to better control my diabetes so I manage my food and insulin intake on this website. It's hard to keep track every day of my food and exercise, so if you have any tips on how not to spend all day in front of the computer doing this, I would be grateful.
It is very good to be part of this group and I am looking forward to meeting everyone!

Good morning to all! My name is Dani and I've been in sp actually a while I'm just not always good at checking in. I have two boys 9 and 6 and they are so important to us! The oldest loves trains and the youngest is into cowboy stuff and horses....tho we are really city folk lol. I try to exercise everyday before the kiddos wake up and I homeschool. I also work part-time in the evening and most weekends.

Just love my life and love to meet other moms....hope your day is great and we can get to know each other and be encouraging for each other. Well, gotta go exercise!

Hi all. I'm Shannon, 35 year old homeschooling Mom of three boys ages 14 years, 11 years, and 1 year.

I've lost a lot of weight since having the 1 year old (hooray for breastfeeding!), but now that he's starting to wean, I'm slowly gaining it back. I've been a SP member for five years or so now, but I've been largely inactive. Now I'm activating again. I want to kick this weight in the butt before it really starts coming back.

Hi my name is Traci. I am the mom of 2 boys. Ages 12 and 5. Love having boys. There are the light of my life. Alot of energy with boys. They love sports and so do I. I am getting healthier so that I can be more active with them and body doesn't feel so run down.

Hi there,
I am a mother of two boys-4 and 8. What a wild ride it is and I love it. After the holiday I must confess I wasn't too sad to see them go to school for a little quiet :)
Anyway I have been sparking for over a year and have been very happy with my progress. About 6 weeks ago, I had surgery and couldn't work out for at least 4 weeks. Then it was Thanksgiving. I fell off the wagon, but I'm getting back.
Hope you all are having a great and highly motivated and energetic day. I'm happy to join this group!

Hi my name is Crystal, I am a mom to two boys 2years, and 5 years. They are my little men they mean the world to me. They do tend to test me at times my 5 year old thinks he's twenty and my 2 year can't help but be everything like his older brother. I am on Spark people and this team so I can lose some weight and gain alittle bit of my younger energy back so I can keep up with these handfuls of boys!

I have survived, so I will conquer any obstacle that awaits me.

I'm new to this team but have been using sp since October 2010. I have 2 sons that go to college in the Chicago area--about 6 hrs away from me and my husband. We are very proud of the young men they have become! The oldest will be student teaching in the fall. He has been studying to be a music teacher. The youngest is a history major and hopes to work in the gov't or a museum.....we'll see.... :)
I hope you all have had an amazing Mother's Day and I look forward to getting to know you!

New here...four boys ages 5-14. I have been on and off of SP since 2009 but am really going to stick with it this time. IT IS TIME! I feel stressed and behind ALL THE TIME and I know that eating has been my coping mechanism. I need to shift it to focusing on being healthy. My goal is to spend 15-30 min./day on SP - either tracking, posting, or reading - to stay FOCUSED! Since Sunday, I have tracked each day and worked out 4 times (this is alot for me) with plans to work out with a friend tomorrow :)!

I run a business from home (Scrapbooking-related!) and help run a Cub Scout den and am very involved in my faith (Catholic) - so all of this keeps me quite busy on top of the boys' needs. Oh - and my husband is in the Navy Reserves and does a ton of volunteering - so it's just hectic hectic!! My husband is my healthy role-model - he runs and eats right most of the time so he's good for me ;)!

Hi all! I'm A, I'm mom to a 2 month old that I call Guppy or Critter. I'm a "single mom" in that the daddy isn't around but I have a HUGE support network. I gained over fifty pounds while pregnant and was already overweight. I need to lose around 70 pounds to get back to a size 8, which I haven't been in about ten years but I know I can do it--for me and for him. I'm glad I found this group!

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams

Hi my name is Wendy and I am a mother of 2 young boys (6 and almost 4). I am trying (again) to get healthy. I put on 120 lbs with my first pregnancy and never got rid of all the weight. I keep bouncing back and forth from 200-220 and would really like to make it to 150 and stay there. I look forward to meeting other moms and supporting each other on this journey

My son is 18. Graduates May 27th. Then we are off on a 5 day trip to the Grand Canyon one last time before we move to Texas, where Jim will be attending The Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts of Dallas.
I am a very proud mama, who raised her child pretty much on her own for 18 years. His dad paid child support, but only because it went through the state. Other than that it is pretty tough to get him even help with lunch money for Jim. And now that he is 18, he will not help at all. His answer is....he is 18, not my problem anymore. Nice guy.


But hey! Happy Mothers day everyone. The weather here is decent, a little brezzy. Hope everyone has had a relaxing day!

Thanks. I think I will. Since we are all moms of boys, I am sure there will be common ground with quite a few other moms here!

Welcome to SP & the team. I'm so excited for you! It really was one of the worst days I remember when my oldest son left for college, even now thinking about it, tears are in my eyes. I unfortunately, was totally alone & probably more hurt that NO ONE called to comfort me. But that was 6 years ago, he's since graduated & I've sent my youngest off to college. I was lucky, they both went to school 70 miles away. Now, my oldest is staying with me to save $, so I guess they never totally leave.
I think it is great that you are getting healthy & in shape with your boys! How fun & when you start eating healthy, you will set an example for your son.
I look forward to hearing how it is going.

Hi everyone! I am a single mom to 2 teenage boys, ages 18 and 14. My 18 year old is getting ready to go to college in the fall, so I am scared to death of having to start to let these guys go!! He was the captain of his high school swim team and is in tip top shape - he is so excited that I'm starting to do something about my weight and fitness. He has also encouraged my 14 year old to join the swim team and they both start practice tomorrow.

My 14 year old son also needs to lose some weight - but he is in the middle of a huge growth spurt, and along with swimming, I'm sure he will actually feel that he can never eat enough- so his challenges are pretty different than mine.

It's really a lot of fun to be getting fit as a family, although I'm so far behind in the whole fitness area, and carrying way more extra weight than them - so our workouts are entirely different. Last night we went for a 2 mile walk together, and my 18 year old was really pushing me to walk faster and even made me JOG for a couple of short stretches!! Yikes!! I'm still way too big for that, and now I have aches and pains I haven't felt in a long time!! :)

I'm glad to have found this group.

Welcome back!! So gald to have you! I know what you mean about this time is it. I am there too. I want to be healthy for my boys, hubby! I want to make them proud!! I want to be a healthy person, the kind of person I looked up too & wanted to be like. I am going to do it!!!

I agree about the Faith Hill, I like her but some people are lucky with good jeans. I am not one of them - DARN IT!!! My x sister n law is one of them. She has had 4 boys and the youngest is 4 months and doesnt look like she had even one let alone 4!!!! But she at least admits it.

Have a good night girls! Talk to you soon...

Welcome back! I remember laughing when Faith Hill was asked how she stays thin, she replied that it was from running after her children, I just thought "BS!" we would all be that thin, then, especially mother's of boys. I think the problem is, we have to eat "convenient" or fast foods which are so unhealthy & fattening, because we are running after then. Plus, if you are like me, I didn't want them to not have certain foods, just because I was on a diet, so there was always junk food in the house & it's so hard to stay away from! So, I know what you are going thru! But, you can do it & you have tons of support here!!!

Hello! I'm JJ and I'm the proud mom of two "ALL BOY" boys ages 7&9. You'd think with all the running around I do with them I'd be 100 lbs, but alas that is not the case and since I want to be around when they have kids it's time to get serious again about weight loss. I was a SparkPeople person several years ago when I lost over 25 lbs, unfortunately, like so many others out there, I managed to put it all back on. Well, I'm in my 40's, recently put on statins and have had enough. Hoping to make some new friends this time around on SP and lose this weight again and KEEP IT OFF!!!

JJ

HI there,
My name is Kris and I love it here on SP! I have 3 boys ages 13, 15, adn 18 (in 2 weeks!) My big one is graduating from high school in June and I can't believe he grew up that quickly! I have a child care business in my home that I started 16 years ago so I could earn a living while I raised my boys. I spend most of my free time driving to soccer or track meets. I am excited to get to know this team!

peace, love and happiness
