I've always struggled with emotional eating, and felt helpless. So it's really motivating to read about how you succeeded overcoming it! Congrats!

That is awesome! I also had a very trying day yesterday and it was the perfect storm where normally I would have come home from work and started emotional eating. Instead, I've already made some good habits in 2 weeks with SparkPeople. I decided on a glass of wine instead of eating. I normally don't drink every day but I purposely made the decision to do that instead of chowing down on something that would make me feel a lot worse later. That experience gave me encouragement for the upcoming weekend. Weekends are usually my biggest downfall times and I have to be extra vigilant to stay on task.

Bravo for accomplishing so much. Your story is an inspiration. I look forward to celebrating the final ten with you as well.

Congratulations! I really believe that while the diet and weight loss are fantastic and would be enough reason to use the website that they barely scratch the surface of what I get from using Spark. It is getting me back on track and making me openly struggle with issues that had gotten me in a bad rut. I am so happy for your success and for the success of so many that I read about every day. Here's hoping that all of us continue to pay it forward. Thanks for sharing! emoticon

Fantastic, I'm so pleased for you. I'm trying to do more or less the same thing, so it was good to read of your success. Keep it up and well done. Helen

Gosh, I can FEEL your excitement! WAY TO GO!!!

For me, overcoming my setbacks has been my biggest challenge AND my biggest victory. I feel as if it's old patterns and habits working their way out of my healthful lifestyle and out of the mindset of my lifetime.

Kudos to you! You are definitely in the Spark Zone... keep pushing forward, knowing that you can do this and you will do this!

Yes, this is sooooo key ... the ability to "shake it off and get back on track." I've had many setbacks but just as many comebacks (this time.)

The math of calories in/calories out is what makes me KNOW I can lose weight. The nutrition tracker provided by Spark is the tool that makes me unafraid of my opponent. No longer do I "wonder" if my strategy will work ... by planning ahead (and entering my meals a few days ahead of time) I can see the future!!

Hi! This is a little woo hoo because I am so proud of myself. I had my first big setback last week. Before Sparkpeople, I would have given up and gone back to my pattern of emotional eating. But instead, I shook it off and got right back on track. I lost 1.8 pounds this week (my target is 1 pound per week) and I just realized not only did I break 140 but I am less than 10 pounds to my goal. I'm more than half way there! This has been one of the best journeys of my life. In the last 3 months, the changes that were a challenge in the beginning have begun to be second nature. I love how my lifestyle makes me feel about myself. I love that I can do twice as many push ups as when I started and I can see the definition starting to happen all over my body. I love that I look forward to my workouts (most of the time!). Most of all, I love that I have learned to enjoy food in all it's wonderful glory and not use it to abuse myself. I haven't always had the most self esteem, and now I feel like Wonder Woman. I can do it!!!
