Ready to live healthy!

I have been struggling with weight since junior high. As I got older, the problem only got worse. I hated the way I looked, and the way I felt in my own skin, but never could stick to a weight loss plan (not to mention that I had to focus on my studies first, and weight loss was just too overwhilming for me). The repeated unsuccesful attempts made me loose a great deal of self-esteem. Over time, I had become quite an emotional eater. Binge eating became a part of me, and I just didn't know how ...
I have been struggling with weight since junior high. As I got older, the problem only got worse. I hated the way I looked, and the way I felt in my own skin, but never could stick to a weight loss plan (not to mention that I had to focus on my studies first, and weight loss was just too overwhilming for me). The repeated unsuccesful attempts made me loose a great deal of self-esteem. Over time, I had become quite an emotional eater. Binge eating became a part of me, and I just didn't know how to get rid of it, how to stop obsessing about food, especially late night cravings. When I discovered SparkPeople, I had been working out 5-6 times a week for a few months and got rid of a few pounds, but the emotional eating was so frustrating: the more i wanted to avoid it, the more I ate, the more I ate, the more I hated myself and well, you know what this leads to: more binge eating!
Finding SparkPeople happened at a time when I really needed guidance and support, and I'm sooo grateful that I did. I just love everything it offers, the teams, the trackers, the great articles, I even think I'm getting the SP fever.
Anyway, one month after I joined SP, I already feel like a huge change happened in my life, and I am ready, more than ever, to tackle the everyday challenge of living healthier!
I may be halfway to my goal weight, but I've just started my healthy life journey and I'm soo excited about it!

Happy Belated Birthday to You!!

Born October 13, you are quite likely to achieve astonishing success in your lifetime, and live to enjoy the fruits of your labors in ways that you may not have dreamt of when young -- and that others are likely to envy. You have a great deal of staying power, and once you make a name for yourself you are likely to stay in the public eye and maintain the kind of high position in the public esteem that you have worked so hard to achieve.

Despite your wicked and irreverent sense of humor, you do have your serious side -- and you are likely to remain keenly attuned to the way of the world, focusing on key issues again and again, throughout your lifetime. You want to do something important -- and so you shall!

Today’s Libra Horoscope: The time has come for you to attempt the impossible -- though you know full well that if you can dream it, you can do it!

You share a birthday with: Sacha Baron Cohen, actor and comedian; Nancy Kerrigan, Olympic skater; Kelly Preston, actress; Jerry Rice, football player; Marie Osmond, singer and entertainer; Paul Simon, singer and songwriter; Lenny Bruce, comic; Margaret Thatcher, former British prime minister; Yves Montand, actor; Cornel Wilde, actor; L.L. Bean, outdoorsman, merchant.

Hope your day was wonderful!

Hey!!! Thanks for writing. Yeah, I did a similar thing. I allowed the weight to creep back in the fall and during the winter I have been working on loosing but it has been more difficult than before. Low thyroid function the Doc said so now I have to work much harder at it. Spring is here and I am so motivated to get the extra weight off. We can get there right? 1 lb/week lost is my goal.
All is well otherwise. Glad you are here.
It's nice there is 2 Ninas around!

Happy Birthday to You!!

Born today (Oct. 13), You may be wishing you could do things the old-fashioned way, especially when technological assistance makes things more difficult.

When young, you no doubt enjoyed playing games, and you played to win; nothing is likely to have changed when you grow older, for you still want to come out on top -- but perhaps even more so than when you were young, you want to have fun on your way there.

Today’s Libra Horoscope: Are you ready to bring your A-game? Nothing less is going to get the job done, and you know there is a lot at stake right now.

Hope your day is wonderful!

Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! emoticon (¸.•´ (¸.•´ ♥¸.•´¸¸.• (¸.•´ (¸.•*¨ (¸.¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. You are- WONDERFUL-cuz you’re you!!!
