Overcoming the Challenge!

December 2013
Here we go again! Hi! I'm Laurie and I have screwed this up. Ok, not screwed up but lost the flow. I lost 60 and gained back 25. Not terrible but I miss how I was feeling was I had lost all that weight. So now I know it can be done and it will be done again. I've had so many changes in my life in the past year and a half since I stopped Sparking regularly. End of 1 long relationship, beginning of another, new (to me) house, new house disaster, back to graduate ...

Here we go again! Hi! I'm Laurie and I have screwed this up. Ok, not screwed up but lost the flow. I lost 60 and gained back 25. Not terrible but I miss how I was feeling was I had lost all that weight. So now I know it can be done and it will be done again. I've had so many changes in my life in the past year and a half since I stopped Sparking regularly. End of 1 long relationship, beginning of another, new (to me) house, new house disaster, back to graduate school, new job. All these ups and downs have made me stronger and I now think I can fit some time for my health in the schedule. Let's do this!!

Original Into: Hi I'm Laurie! I have been struggling with my weight my entire life. I was a figure skater growing up so I was always exercising but I guess that just wasn't enough for me. Last year I joined an adult Theater on Ice skating team, Imagica, and I have found alot of motivation to lose weight to fit into costumes.

GOOD LUCK to everyone!


Update: 11/15/2010
I have lost quite a bit weight on this journey so far. I have made many changes in my life, but I'm not quiet to where I need to be. I have addeded exercise to my schedule at least 5 days a week trying for 7 and I eat way more fruits and vegetable.

I know the problems I have. I know I eat when I'm bored, I eat when I'm depressed, I eat when I'm stressed, I eat when I'm happy, I eat when I just feel like it. I need to change my relationship with food. I need to be in charge. It's very scary to think about how much I think about food. I sit at a desk all day doing boring tedious work and when I get spacey, I find I'm thinking about what I want to eat. It doesn't help that all the boys in the office start talking about lunch at 9am.

I can admit my problems. I can admit that I almost think of this as a disease. I need to get food off my mind. I am now trying to think about crafting and doing something better with my future. Things I can do to keep my hands from going into the kitchen looking for something to do.

I have come so far with SparkPeople and I know that this team of people who are all having the same issues and challenges with their lives are going to be what gets me to my goal. I do appreciate SparkPeople and am so thrilled to have brought this into my life.

Thank you SparkPeople and all of my Sparkfriends who support me when I'm down and push me to get where I want to go! Thank you Thank you Thank you!
