I am a 46-year-old mother of 4, step mother of 3, and grandma of 2! I never had weight issues until I started having children. I suffer from depression and anxiety which seems to get worse the older I get ๐Ÿ˜”. Unfortunately, this causes me to self-medicate with food. I have tried many different diets. Some have been successful but I always gain the weight back plus more! I have decided that I want to be healthy as well as being skinny. I know that I can do this! I have finally moved from the "diet mentality" to the "healthy living" mentality. I welcome new sparkfriends! This is a journey we are all in together. It sure makes it better, easier and more fun when we are helping each other along the way! (Big, special THANK YOU to my wonderful sparkfriends! Love you all!) Some of my favorite quotes from sparkpeople: "If at first you don't succeed, you are running about average." "Being defeated is often temporary. Giving up makes it permanent." "We either make ourselves happy or miserable. The amount of work is the same." "There are no short cuts to any place worth going." "Insanity is doing something over and over again and expecting different results."

Fitness Minutes: 26,726

My Goals:
I want to lose 80 lbs by April 2012. I'm hoping I can do it sooner but we'll see. I want to be healthy and have TONS of energy to play with my kids and do everything I enjoy. I don't want to have to say "no" to everthing because I'm too tired!

My Program:
Since I am a Diet Pepsi addict, I'm starting there. I am weaning myself off of the caffeine and making sure I drink at least 10 glasses of water a day. I am tracking my food and my exercising. I'm trying to become more involved with sparkpeople this time. Hopefully I can get more motivation through members like me.

Personal Information:
My name is Andrea and I live in Twin Falls, ID. I gained most of this weight with my 3rd and 4th children. I would lose 20-30 lbs and then gain it right back and then some! I am so ready to be a fun mom instead of a mom who's always too tired.

Other Information:
I love to read which doesn't help my weight situation. I need to move more. I love to go camping, boating, riding motorcycles, and skiing with my family. I haven't gone skiing for a couple of years because of my weight. When we go boating I never get in the water and play too. I just watch everyone else. I also love scrapbooking, sewing, crocheting, and singing. I am done being this person who can't do the things she loves. I'm tired of my weight holding me back! It's time for a change!!

    Welcome to the Idaho Team! We have a great team in here and if you have questions, just give us a holler.
    SP is a great place to keep us motivated. I personally use the calorie tracker and fitness trackers. They give me that extra push.
    Have fun!
