Under Construction

Hi! My name is Marie. I live in North Carolina with my husband of 13 years. Yep..that's right...I didn't marry until I was 41. We both had one daughter before we got married and they are grown and living on their own now. I work part-time as a home health nurse. In my spare time I love to sew, craft, and do anything crafty. I also love reading and watching Movies as they are my escape from the daily grind.
I had a successful weight loss using Spark as a tool about 2 or 3 years ...

I had a successful weight loss using Spark as a tool about 2 or 3 years ago. I'm not sure why I ended up gaining it back. Maybe the stress of my Dad being sick and helping take care of him, the stressfulness of my job, my ADD which makes it difficult to get regular chores accomplished, my dysfunctional family dynamics, my depression or my lost faith. I just know that I watched it happen, knowing it was happening, and just kept eating. I weighed myself routinely and watched the scale go up.
So here I am and I am hoping to be successful this time and also hope that others on Spark can be successful. Obesity is a disease that is difficult to control. I once read that the people who lost weight and kept it of had several failed attempts prior to the final success. So here's hoping that this attempt will be the the final success
