My name is Shelley. I am a 31 year old mom who wants to lose weight. I grew up and still reside near Bridgewater, Nova Scotia! I have gotten sidetrack in recent months. I blame it on having no willpower, lol! Well from Christmas to late January I had major back problems due to injury. It was feeling better, but returning once again. I have put on a few pounds, so I have reset my goals, and starting over!

My Goals:
I want so much to lose weight!

My Program:
I am in love with the charting method on Spark People as it really make me aware of what I need to eat. We have cut out so many things ( there are no chips, bologna or pepperoni to be seen here) . Trying to brown bag lunch more and skip the drive thrus! Added lots of whole grains, more fruit and veggies. Have always drank skim milk, diet pepsi if pop. Paid $140 for an exercise bike, well I need motivation...! I just can''t wait for the weather to warm up so I can push my son in the stroller, although he is getting to big for that! My BF works evenings and once the little guy is asleep I sit on the pc or chair, not good!

Personal Information:
I am a 31 year old female in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada. My name is Shelley.I work about 35 hours a week, as a home care worker. I live with my BF of 13 years and we have a 4 year old son. We both need to lose weight. He had been trying since Jan. 28 and amazingly lost almost 70 lbs already! I lead a busy lifestyle with split shifts,weekend work, and time is limited for exercise. Hubby works evenings so I just can''t take off for a walk right now...!

Other Information:
I am an active eBay seller!
