Hi! I'm Candi. I am a Special Education teacher in Missouri. I am a 44 year old mother of three children, one in college, one in high school, and one going into pre-school! Nuff said? My husband and I decided to join together to lose weight and eat healthy.

Wow! We have been with Sparkpeople for over a month and I have met my first goal (lost 10 pounds) and working on the next goal!
