In regards to your comment found here:

I start the next snack or meal as a healthy one, say an apple or banana for a snack, and then the same with dinner, making it healthy. I also meal plan for the month and make sure every meal is planned to be healthy. When I have a slip up, I've noticed as well if I can get in some movement (a walk, or playing outside with my son) that it makes me want to make healthy decisions for the rest of the day.

Thank you for your comment and I do hope this helps. You look amzing btw, your doing a great job!

Hi- Welcome to the EE team! Great place for support, and encouragement, and a place to vent if you need to!

10 Positive Assumptions

1) I will make and keep my commitments.

2) I will find the right people who can help me.

3) I will look for an answer in every problem.

4) I will give up “trying” and simply do.

5) I will make it okay to be wrong and make mistakes.

6) I will create my own “good luck”.

7) I will not be afraid to lose before I win.

8 ) I will do it now!

9) I will be who I am and become what I was meant to be.

10) I will accept that all things are possible.

-Robert Anthony, in his book “Betting on Yourself”

Hope to see you on the message boards! Have a great week!

Welcome to the EE team!!

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!

~~best of luck to you on all of your goals!!! emoticon

What a great decision you have made to join Spark People. It is an amazing site! The really cool thing is that it is FREE!! There is tons of information to absorb here and there is always someone around to help if you find yourself having a bit of trouble.

Want to make another great decision? Come check out my page. I am a co-leader of a team called QuickFire. It is the best team around by far! Yes, I am bias, but what do you have to lose? If you like what you see about the team, feel free to join! We would love to have you on board with us.

WARINING!! It is proven that QuickFiring can lead to a HOT BODY! I dare you to come play the QuickFire way!!!
