Hello. My name is Amanda and I am 30 years old. A few years ago, I utilized Sparkpeople and lost over 70 pounds. I lost my motivation and fell back into old habits, regaining those 70 lbs. plus even more! I don't have any excuses. Yes, life is stressful, busy and unpredictable, but I shouldn't have let myself get back to that place. I often feel lonely, which is when I eat the most.

I have recently been to an OA meeting, where you have to admit that you are POWERLESS over food. I refuse to believe I am powerless over anything, especially with God watching over and guiding me. I can do this.

I am here for yet another try. As long as I'm trying, I'm not failing. My weight limits me in so many ways and it would be nice to just live life the way it was meant to be lived. I am a great person, but am so afraid to let it show sometimes because I am afraid of being criticized for my weight.

I currently work full time in marketing, am married, and have a 7 year old daughter. Whenever I put my mind to something, I always succeed, but have such a hard time when it comes to losing weight and staying on track.

Thank you for listening and I look forward to the challenge this time around. I just need to stick to it and stop getting in my own way!

    I have been struggling to lose weight since Matisyn's been born! The first time I lost weight it was so easy and now it is a huge struggle. There's a lot going on on this end, so things keep coming up so I end up getting off track. But today I am starting fresh and really need to focus on doing well during the weekends!

    8 pounds in a month is good. It is definitely hard for Bobby to be gone, but it will give me time to focus on myself. I am so hungry, lol, I hate that I let myself go, because the hardest part is shrinking the stomach, so I know for the next week or so, I will be hungry like all the time! I hope you do keep in contact, but if not, it is ok!

    Aw thanks for the comment on my blog. I felt so much better after I wrote all that out on a blog, I was able to realize that only I can change my ways, no one else can! So today I am doing much better with my food, I just have to make sure I keep it up the rest of the day.
    Are you back on track, or what is your plan? We could support each other you know :)
