Thanks for visiting my SparkPage :) ...
I am finally back, after 6 unsuccessful monthsof no weight loss, but full of work and stressful events.
I am Eilean, 31 years old and I am fed up with being fat. I have tried so many diets, counting calories and nothing works. I have to blame myself, I give up too easily. I have just come back from a holiday and saw the pictures and I can't believe that I even fit on them! Something has to change and I am back to start a second attempt on SparkPeople. Hopefully with more success this time.
I had my first diet when I was ten, when my mother bought a dress for me which just would not fit, it was nearly two sizes two small. Since my mother did not want to give the dress back, she put me on a diet. Tea and soured cream, crisp bread and cucumber for 4 weeks. It was an utter nightmare and although I managed to fit into the dress at that time, I later gained all the weight back and more.
I have been told that I am fat all my life, from my school mates, teachers, parents but to be fair I wasn't a particularly big child. My older sister was tall and slim and a top model would have looked fat next to her. My partner would have called her a stick insect, not nice but he isn't wrong (no worries though, she looks stunning today, she was just one of them very slim kids). Well, so I was the fat little girl, not pretty and certainly not what my parents had hoped for. And although I get along very well with both of them today and I do love them to bits, the constant nagging about me being fat is still lingering deep inside of me.
The during puberty I got to the point when I thought I am fat anyway, so what the heck, it doesn't matter anymore anyway and started to eat whatever I liked and too much of it, too.
At the age of 19 I was about 130 kg and managed to get down to 115 kg. In the last year I managed to get down to 106 kg but reached a plateau and gave up. Back at 115 kg now I want to give it another try, with the support of my twin sister and my beloved partner Paul who loves me just the way I am. When we met I was 121 kg and he loved it. But he understands why I want to lose weight, why I want to be slim and attractive and more importantly healthy.
I am glad to have found this site and I am looking forward to losing weight and to getting to know the SparkPeople out there :) .

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.
