Well hello marypg40, you and I have some things in common. I'm not from Ireland, but my dad's whole family is of Irish decent, I started out at 244.6 lbs, I'm also 43 and I have a wonderful 9 year old as well, although my 9 year old is a daughter (we also have 2 younger daughters). Currently I'm a SAHM, which doesn't come with much of a paycheck, but is never the less a full time + job. I'm so glad to hear that your "healthy+fitness" switch has flipped on. I don't know about you but I get a lot of motivation from my children, I want to be a good example of how to live a healthy life, to show my girls how it's done, so they will lead healthy lives. My mom is a nurse and she said to me that at the hospital where she works when you meet a healthy mom, you meet a healthy family and when you meet an unhealthy mom you meet a sick family. Congratulations on those 8 lbs!!! You're off to a fantastic start.
