Hi, I'm Edie and I am a 55 year old wife, mother and grandmother. I am way overweight, but I'm determined to turn it around this year. I've started and stopped every kind of diet and spent so much money doing so. This year, slow and steady is my goal - one day at a time!
Drink eight cups of water daily.
Work-out five days a week.
Keep up with my food diary.
Making myself drink water instead of diet coke!
Joined a gym, and started swimming in our subdivision.
On my Spark pages all the time.
I live in Buford, Georgia. I used to be young and thin, but now I am older, fatter and grayer. I love being older, and I love my gray hair, but the fat has got to go!
I've got four grandchildren who are three and under. I help with them, love to read and love to bake (part of my downfall!)

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