I began using Sparkpeople in 2009. I had lost weight successfully with Weight Watchers, but was tired of that program and felt like I needed more tools.

I've come back here a few times and am hoping this new start as of November 2015 will be the one that takes me to where I'd like to be: comfortable with myself and my weight, liking myself, and healthy.

For many years, I've struggled with emotional eating as well as depression, where I lost a significant amount of weight. I have had several years of grief and loss in my life and am in the process of recovering from the toll that several critical events have taken on me, including a traumatic brain injury. I'm pleased that this place has so many resources and positivity! Thanks for stopping by.
