I'm a Christian, I'm a SAHM to a wonderful son, my husband and I will celebrate 12 years on September 30th (5 years married-same anniversary). I joined MFP b/c I want to be healthy!!! I lost 120 pounds but gained a few back and now I'm just maintaining through ultra training. I want to continue to avoid the weight related illnesses such as high blood pressure, diabetes, joint pain, high cholesterol, heart disease, etc. I want to be fit!!! I want to be strong! I want to be Super Mom! I want to live a healthy lifestyle. I want to play sports as an adult. I want to out run my kiddo. I want to live a long life. I want to set a good example for my family. Hubby doesn't use any app to track but through healthier habits has lost 120 pounds as well. He's within his ideal weight range and now will begin focusing more on body composition. I don't want my son to ever remember us being overweight. I don't want him to ever worry about his parent's health.
