I am a stay at home mom that is on depression drugs that have caused major weight gain. I have never had to try to loose weight in my life until after having my 3rd child & starting the medication. I was always active in high school & was always told that I was too skinny, even though I ate constantly. I believe that people probably thought I was anorexic now that I look back on it. They would be eating something & I wouldn't be hungry & they would try to put food in my mouth. I hated that. I wasn't hungry & I ALWAYS ate when I was hungry. I just never ate large portions at each sitting. I wish I could get the old me back. At least part of me anyway. :(

Member Since: 1/24/2008

Fitness Minutes: 1,382

My Goals:
I would like to be able to loose 10 pounds by March13th which is when I go to San Antonio, TX for training with EF Foundation for Foreign Study.


My Program:
I am trying to drink plenty of water throughout the day instead of soda & sugary coffee with cream. Trying to eat better & stay away from eating out as much as possible. This is usually just a treat for the entire family not something we do on a daily or evern weekly basis.



Personal Information:
I am from Las Vegas, NV. I have lived here for almost 10 years. I have 3 children - 20-12 & 7 years of age. 1 daughter (oldest) & 2 boys. For the most part they are great kids!


Other Information:
I like to read, crochet, & knit & do basic crafting projects. I have a black lab mix & 2 house cats. I have my husbands father living in my home for the last 18 years & my husbands mother moved in last March after a car accident. They have been divorced for over 20 years. Luckily they don't fight constantly. :)

    HI! I am new to this team and I just thought I would pop in to say hello. I am a co-captain on another team called "calling all Goonies-2008" and I have been a member of Spark for a little more than 2 1/2 months. It has been a wonderful experience and I have met so many awsome people! I joined THIS team too because I have always had an interrest in the paranormal so I liked the idea of joining a team full of people with similar interrests. Ghost Hunters is a great show and I love watching it when it comes on. I SOOOO wish I could get a job working on that show. Last year, the producer of the show contacted my boss and I about a new show they were thinking about doing (not paranormal related) on Maui and I got a chance to chat with her for a while. She says it's all totally real and it bugs her out. LOL! Feel free to come and visit my Spark Page! I did it up for Fall (my favorite time of year). I love visitors! Have an awsome September! Enjoy the nice weather! ((Hugs))

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. My husband doesn't want curtains covering his woodwork. LOL

    I'm fine. Today is a good day. I was just reflecting upon those moments of self-doubt that sometimes pop into our heads. I'm doing very well fighting them off, and one day they won't even cross my mind.

    I was also on those depression drugs after having my baby. i gained more weight from doing that than from having the baby. unfortunatley it was that or tear the skin off my face. so i took them but i was lucky and my doctor caught it early. i only had to take it for a couple of months and then i wanted to see if i could go without so i did. and i was better but BIGGER!. Now i am finding it challenging to get back into shape, for the first time in my life. So just know you are not alone.
    And Congrats on your progress. AJ
