I'm living with Scleroderma, an autoimmune disease like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, that only get's worse without gentle and consistent exercise. I need to return to a healthier weight for me - a fat and sassy 220 pounds - so I can remain flexible and regain some of the stamina I've lost the past year or so.
3 Fresh Veggies
Plenty of Protein
20+ g fiber
Less than 40 g net carb
No sugar, HFCS
2 Glasses pure water
WAP x 4
Stretching x 4
Walk Away The Pounds
Eating a low carbohydrate foods are the only way my body responds to losing excess weight. I'd tried most every diet plan out there - sensible and NOT - and nothing ever worked. I gave up and lived my life. Until 2003 when I tried Atkins - and bang! Amazing! My body chemistry changed, blood fats, blood sugars, blood pressure, weight ... WEIGHT! They all plummeted! For 3 years, I lived and loved a "LC WOL", but the last few years have seen too many changes and I've lost my focus, returned to unhealthy habits ... but with the help of my loved ones and Sparks ... I'll get back on track and back in the saddle ...

I'm so very glad that you've joined the Emotional Eaters Team. The team is a place where you can vent. And where you will receive some awesome support. Of course, I am biased ... its my favorite team at SparkPeople! I hope you find exactly what you are looking for! Welcome to the team!
Be sure to ask questions if you have them ... someone will likely have the answer. Use the tools SparkPeople provides. They are invaluable. If you feel an emotional eating attack coming on, come to the boards first. Write about it instead of pushing the feelings away with food. We're here for you!
Eat well, journey well,
