It's a beautiful new day today, and I am taking a deep breath, letting go of the past, and embarking on a new road.

My Goals:
To reach 150 pounds by the end of 2014!

To become more consistent in my ability to care for myself and my health, even when life brings struggles.

To grow in my self-expression as a loving presence, toward myself and others whose lives I touch.

My Program:
A work in progress!

I want to work specifically on reducing my emotional eating (boredom, comfort, stress, etc).

Other Information:
I made huge strides in my health journey in 2011 - I lost 40 pounds! 2012 was more of a rollercoaster - I mostly maintained my weight in the 160s, with some wobbles during life's ups and downs. I also went on an amazing trip to Europe, and completed C25K, and ran my first 5K in June 2012.

In the winter of 2012-2013, I began juggling a new relationship and a new job, and the combination of holiday-eating, love-eating, and stress-eating, and winter-exercise-slacking, was killer!

Now I see the light at the end of the tunnel - I have a dissertation defense date set for Spring 2014, and a job lined up for once I graduate. I am beginning anew.

Awesome to hear from you:) Sorry about the response delay, I have to admit I'm not a frequent Sparker anymore although getting back at it has been on my mind more and more so maybe this is the catalyst I need!
I'm back around 157 after some ups and downs :( Not horrible, not wonderful either. Gave away all my "fat" clothes and now things are getting pretty snug. My only saving grace is that I've more or less been consistently exercising. But I know what you mean about "love eating". I've been seeing someone since January and at first I wasn't sure what was going on so there was some stress eating and now that everything is good the love eating is going on! Why is it that men think a seven layer dip and pretzel bread covered in cheese is a balanced dinner??? And why is it we (well me anyway) say what the heck and eat it too? Anyway, I know if I start to watch what I eat again I can get back on track all the logging just takes so much time so it's hard to convince myself but I think it's the only way. Good luck to you, I know you can do this! You've made the first step dipping your toes back in and it's a great reminder for me too so thank you!

OMG! It was so wonderful to see you on my page! I agree stress eating and love eating is a killer combo indeed. It resulted in a major weight gain for me also and I am back in obesity which kills me. Not even being in ONEderland kills me even more. I can't wait to hear about your new man. You will have to give me some deets when you find the time.

Hey there! Haven't talked to you in forever. How are you doing? Hope your holidays were wonderful. I ate like I lost a temptation challenge on the Biggest Loser and am ready to get back on track. I just feel ookie. Fell in love over the winter break which you can probably tell by my page. :) How's things in your dating life going?
