Losing my butt....not my mind

Welcome to my page!

My name is Donna and I'm from the littlest state in the union, Rhode Island. I am 45. I've got 55 pounds (at least!) to lose, along with other goals that I've set for myself. I am hideously disorganized and I'm a smoker. While I'm not quite ready to give up smoking yet (mostly because I don't think starting a new eating plan...beginning and exercise program again...becoming organized AND quitting smoking are things that I can tackle all at once!) Anyway, I ...
Welcome to my page!

My name is Donna and I'm from the littlest state in the union, Rhode Island. I am 45. I've got 55 pounds (at least!) to lose, along with other goals that I've set for myself. I am hideously disorganized and I'm a smoker. While I'm not quite ready to give up smoking yet (mostly because I don't think starting a new eating plan...beginning and exercise program again...becoming organized AND quitting smoking are things that I can tackle all at once!) Anyway, I have been battling my weight all of my life. I'm an emotional eater; no matter what my emotion is...it gets well-fed. Happiness is a reason to eat as is boredom yet interestingly enough the darker emotions...sadness and anger and such....make me completely lose my apetite.

So this is the beginning of my page towards a healthy new lifestyle....comments are greatly appreciated. Oh....and if you live in Rhode Island and would like to walk/hike....drop me a note.

Lastly....no pictures yet! My laptop died and my pictures were on it. I refuse to take any pictures until I fit into a size 16!

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. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ emoticon

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! emoticon
