I have been using the Spark program now for years, and it's really been an incredible experience. Although I can't say that I am losing weight, I am maintaining what I weigh (which is something I most certainly did not do while I took a two month break from Spark). I truly believe that the absolute best part of Sparkpeople is the terrific support that I get from everyone on this site. I hope that I can be as good a motivator and as much of an inspiration as the people that I've met here.

I am a wife, mother, student and teacher. I really don't have a lot of time to spend on food preparation or exercise so I try to maximize the time that I have.

Good luck with your journey.

Oct 2012: I am trying to reassess my goals, as I don't seem to be making the kind of progress that I would have liked. I am shaving 20 pounds off my goal weight, and hope that by bringing the goal closer I will be more motivated to reach it.

My Goals:
To lose the weight that I put on BEFORE my pregnancy! (I wrote that two babies ago!)

Current weight loss goals:

1) To get back to my pre-pregnancy weight.

2) To lose ~10% of my body weight (goal weight 150 lbs)

My Program:
To try to be really good about fitting excercise into my daily routine.
I've been doing at least 30 minutes of cardio daily. Missed days get made up with double time the next.
I've started walking more (which in my neighborhood is more like climbing). I love Cathe and Turbo Jam for the days that I can't get out.

Personal Information:
Proud mother of 7 beautiful children.

    Hope you like the pickled kohlrabi! I don't remember ever seeing kohlrabi when I was in Israel. Is it easy to find there?

    I'll be sporadic on sparkpeople - depends on finding wifi. Will travel with the laptop, and we have a blog - - so everyone can follow us around the world!

    I hope to meet Ania (ILoveRoses) when we get to Australia - and you are definitely on the Israel list! I hope I can find Myrna when we hit London!

    Thank you for the goodie and for your comments, sweetie - and we've been planning this for a while, so it isn't as scary as it might seem. Although we both are sad today, having sold our cars and handed over the keys. (We both loved our cars!)

    Maybe we'll meet up when we get to Israel!

    I'm so glad to hear that! It's been a transition for sure, and we've been traveling so much this summer that we haven't really processed much yet. I'm anticipating the fall really being when we get to go through all the emotions. I am doing LEs Mills Pump and loving it- I gained a few too many pounds when we got back to the USA in June! It will be gone fast, and was a reality check about how I was eating! Good to hear from you! Keep up your good work!
