Hi there! It's hard to look forward to exercising! I tried a lot of things before I figured out what I loved. I'm 30 weeks and have been doing TurboJam at home. LOVE it. It's kickboxing and fun music. I do have to modify a lot right now but it still kicks my butt! If you need anymore adivce on workouts let me know! Good luck =)

Hi Sara, welcome!

Quoting saraewhite:

Hello everyone! My name is Sara. I am 29. I have two children, Hunter is 6 and Hailey is 4. I am married to my husband Josh. We will be married 4 years in September and together 10 years in June. We live in Stanley, WI.

I had lost 30 lbs between September of 2012 and January 2013, but unfortunatly it was not the healthy way. I was only eating one meal a day. Now that I have started working again I find myself eating at work and it is not the healthiest (subs, pasta's and pizza). I usually only home two nights a week to cook meals.

I want to get away from the hamburger and chicken helper, macaroni and cheese and frozen pizzas.

I would love to get some great ideas for meals thatincorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables and way less fat!

I also hate exercising! To me it is like pulling teeth without any form of sedation or novicaine, lol! So if anyone has any wonderful ideas on exercising for those who don't that would be much appreciated as well.

If you have any questions, ask away!

Hi my name is Beth. I have a family of 5 and then 7 when my step kids are here. We are on a very tight budget and trying to stay healthy is a struggle for me. Everyone says eating healthy doesn't cost more but it sure seems like it.

Hello Everyone!  My name is Penny and I am 7 weeks pregnant with my first baby :)  While it was a definite surprise, I am very excited now that the shock has worn off!  I am an ultramarathoner living in Northern California with my husband who will unfortunately be deployed most of the pregnancy (hopefully not the birth) and my psycho, super cute, terrier mix Boomer.

Hello, ladies.

I'm a single mom of 2 teenagers.  I've been working on getting healthier and physically stronger for the last 5 years.  I have had such wonderful experiences since turning my life toward the healthier that I now pay it forward to others and teach them how to do the same, no matter their circumstances.

I look forward to getting to know more ladies here.

 Hi healthy ladies :) I am a happily married mother of  3 wonderful daughters (14,11, and almost 4) I have shed 8 pants sizes and 10 dress sizes since this time last year and I haven't had a cigarette in 3 day's Yay me! SparkPeople helped me through my weight-loss but since I am just maintaining now it is not much help anymore. I joined this group to meet other healthy mom's and make friends with women who care about what they put in their bodies.
