Hey, welcome to my space. I think I'm finally really ready to lose this d@mn weight. I'm tired of being big and tired. I want to be skinny and healthy and not have to worry about blood sugar or cholesterol or any of that other junk. I just want to find the real me under all this....
1. To be skinny.
2. To win this war against food.
3. To reprogram my brain, I need to eat to live not the other way around.
4. To have my son not think I'm ...you know, the F word.
I work out with a TEAM Weightloss program at the gym 3 days per week and am trying to incorporate more activity into the other days.
I eat (achem, try to eat) 1600 calories per day and work on an exchange basis - 5 carbs, 12 protein, 4 fruit, 6 veggies and 9 fats.
I am Canadian and living in Texas where I don't have to put up with the cold! I've lived here since 2001.
I have 2 kids and a hubby, and one dog.
I am also a chef and freelance writer. Being a chef makes it REALLY hard because I can cook whatever I want and boy, can I make it taste good. I now have to figure out how to make skinny food taste as good!

¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¨Welcome to the EE team!!
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! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
