I have started the South Beach Diet ....it encourages you to change your lifestyle so that your weight stays off. The first phase is tough but keeps you from craving sugar. I don't feel hungry and actually have a hard time getting in enough food. 2804 days ago
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!
You are- WONDERFUL-cuz you’re you!!! BELIEVE IT!!! operationbeautiful-- END THE FAT TALK!!!
As one who knows what it is like to be on the "Weight-Loss Roller Coaster" let me begin by saying It doesn't matter how many times you lost and gained - it is what you do from this point forward. We cannot change the past. But we can control the future. Making healthier choices are so much easier with the information on SparkPeople. When I joined I did nothing for the first few months and then in April I got "serious" I have lost 35lbs as a result. I have learned to let go of the bad choices and concentrate on the good. You will find a lot of good support and wisdom here. I pray that you will take this wisdom and make a New lifestyle for you and your family full of healthy choices. There is no deprivation here but I have made different (better) choices as a result of joining SP. Blessings~
