In serious need of getting in shape and losing weight

I got a divorce about a year old and since that time I have gained a ton of weight. I have always been fairly thin or average size, but due to the stress of finishing my Master's degree as a full-time student and full-time, single mom...I have used food to compensate for being lonely, stressed, sad, etc.

Well, after nearing 150lbs at only 5'3", having NO clothes that fit and feeling disgusted looking at pictures of myself or looking in the mirror, I realized that I need to do something about this NOW. I can't keep allowing myself to eat mindlessly and live such a sedentary lifestyle...I am approaching 30 years old and in this past year, I feel physically weak, have little muscle tone (okay, none), and my body tires WAY too easily.

I have "rejoined" Spark people several times, but have allowed excuses to keep my from really giving it my all. I say "I am too busy today..."--EVERY.DAY! So, now it is time for action...I need to feel good about myself, and need to focus on making my body strong & healthy. I am tired of having such a negative self-image.

Welcome to Spark People! It's a fantastic place for support. When I first started I was a bit overwhelmed, just stick with it & it will become second nature.
