I've been trying to lose weight for most of my life. It has become even more important to me now because I want to be here as long as possible to see my daughter grow and marry, and have a family of her own. I want to be here for her...I'm 40 and am very close to my Mom. I have to do this.

I have set a short term goal weight of 250 by November. The spark calculator says I can do this if I lose 3 pounds a week. I think that is a doable goal...I just have to stay on track and be strong.


Member Since: 2/27/2010

My Goals:
I AM COMMITED TO working out a minimum of 5 days a week. The days I don't work out...I will be active in different ways...I will play physical games with my daughter...I will not eat fast food every day. Instead I will just grab it in a pinch maybe twice a month. When speaking of my goal, I will speak confident and I will believe my goal will happen. Example, no more "if I can do this," now it's "I will do this, I can do this." Build up my strength and be a good example for my daughter.


My Program:
A mile minimum 5 days a week.
Calories not counted yet but will start that next week. Just eating healthy and much less fast food.
Make the journey fun.
WELCOME others to join along the way.
Overall eat right and move a lot more!



Personal Information:


Other Information:
I go to the gym 5 mornings minimum...and the cool thing I have noticed is this:

I'm a success as soon as I finish my work out. No matter what I do or don't do or what I mess up at work or home later...I'm still a rock star and I still feel great about myself. I love it!

    Hi Kim! Thanks for adding me as a friend. What a precious little girl you have! Remember to start out slowly so you don't get burned out. This is a lifestyle change, not just a weight loss and I'm sure like most of us you didn't get where you are overnight. Lasting changes take time and patience. I am one of those people who wants everything yesterday. This time I am trying a new approach. Start small and use all of the tools this site has to offer. I love it! I added you too so I hope to hear from you and here's to your success!

    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! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
