Hey there, IAMAZGIRL, I, too, live in Tucson and am back on SparkPeople (New Year's resolutions and all...). This is just an encouraging note to keep at it -- we'll get to our goal weights and health goals if we just keep plugging away at it this year. I like to scrapbook too.
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!!
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. That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success!
