I don't want it to be about weight but about comfort in size. I would like to get back to my size 10 as that was my comfort level. Goals: size 10, lower blood pressure, stop avoiding mirrors, feel good about myself again
Blog at least 4 times a week.

Favorite quote: When someone shows you who they are, believe them.
That quote has brought me into great friendships and kept me from some horrible experiences. People will show you who they are, good and bad, you just have to see it. Don't excuse behaviors of other or yourself.
Thanks for the flowers...I lost 70 lbs in 7 months mostly by watching portions..who knew a serving of pasta is only 1/2 cup!?..I gave up white bread and mostly eat only light wheat breads and rolls now...I moved alot more than I had been..I put 20 back on by thinking I'd reached my goal and could relax some...and I had a bout of depression...but there are always blips in the road and I'm trying to make lifestyle changes...glad we're on this journey together, Hugs, Judy
Thanks for the comment on my sparkpage - it keeps me going to know that others get something from this journey as well. Well - I have to say - for me especially excersise is SO important and you have that one going pretty well with 4 miles a day - but for me FOOD counting is a MUST the moment I quit counting I start to gain! So - hope that tidbit helps you on your journey as well. Keep walking and having fun!
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!!
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. That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success!
