Starting Over

I am 36 years old and a mother of three. My youngest is 5 and my oldest is 19.
My husband and I have recently moved to a dream location less than a mile from the beach. We love it. I am literally starting over.
Over the last 2 years I have been through a lot and I have pretty much lost every thing. My career, posessions and money.

I am 36 years old and a mother of three. My youngest is 5 and my oldest is 19.
My husband and I have recently moved to a dream location less than a mile from the beach. We love it. I am literally starting over.
Over the last 2 years I have been through a lot and I have pretty much lost every thing. My career, posessions and money.
I have spent this time in a major depression and in a very angry state.I had been losing weight before this time and had lost around 40 lbs and was on my way to getting my body back and then everything began to spin out of control, including my weight.
And now I am over 200 pounds and depressed and I have been using food as an escape and comfort for all that has happened.
Now it is time that I stop punishing myself and start taking back control over my life.
I know I will have to take this one meal and one day at a time. And I am also going to need a lot of suppport, which is why I have joined SparkPeople.
I will post some pictures of me now later and I also will post pics of my progress. I hope by doing so that it will make me more accountable.

SparkPoints: 670

Fitness Minutes: 620

My Goals:
My goals are
To exercise at least 20mins a day, five days per week.

To lose 1-2lbs per week.
And to give up all sodas including diet drinks.

My Program:
I am going to stick to the high end of my calorie allowance to allow room for adjustment if weight loss slows.
I am going to be sure to drink 8 glasses of h2o daily.
And exercise at least 20 mins at least 5 days per week.

Personal Information:
I am originally from Ga and I lived in South GA for over 15 years and thank God I am now out of the state and living near the beach and in a much larger community with much more to do.

I am a psychology student and I am eventually going to get my degree in substance abuse counseling and helping people who practice self injury.
I love to eat and I need help to eat my favorite things in moderation.

I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)
Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
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! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*

Hi- Welcome to the EE team! Great place for support, and encouragement, and a place to vent if you need to!

10 Positive Assumptions

1) I will make and keep my commitments.

2) I will find the right people who can help me.

3) I will look for an answer in every problem.

4) I will give up trying and simply do.

5) I will make it okay to be wrong and make mistakes.

6) I will create my own good luck.

7) I will not be afraid to lose before I win.

8 ) I will do it now!

9) I will be who I am and become what I was meant to be.

10) I will accept that all things are possible.

-Robert Anthony, in his book Betting on Yourself.

Hope to see you on the message boards! Have a great day!
