Fighting from Fat to Fit

I have always been heavy, but being an emotional eater, every time I go through any type of crisis (life, health, work, family, financial) I gain weight and hit a new plateau where I stay until my next weight gain.

Recent history: I had been losing weight for my brother's wedding and my 40th birthday when I started having "female" problems. Worrying about what was possibly wrong, I started eating a lot of comfort food. I had a hysterectomy and my bladder lifted in July 2007. ...
I have always been heavy, but being an emotional eater, every time I go through any type of crisis (life, health, work, family, financial) I gain weight and hit a new plateau where I stay until my next weight gain.

Recent history: I had been losing weight for my brother's wedding and my 40th birthday when I started having "female" problems. Worrying about what was possibly wrong, I started eating a lot of comfort food. I had a hysterectomy and my bladder lifted in July 2007. Since then I have had other problems that have given me an excuse to not diet and work out. However, my brother and I have recently opened a new business, Amyx Fine Jewelry Consignment Appraisal Consulting (www.AmyxFineJewelry.com) in our home town, and we had our picture in the local paper. Needless to say I was not happy with how I looked in the picture. I am trying to motivate myself to loose weight now that I am in a position to see so many people in my community.

Problems with weight loss: I have a few health problems that are not major, but all make it easier for me to decide to not work out or eat right. 1) I have always gotten sick when I was hungry. As a child, I would vomit. As an adult, I would feel faint. I learned to eat whenever I felt sick. 2) I do not have a good sense of smell or taste. I dislike food that is sour, hot, salty, pickled, etc. But I love sweets. 3) I have 3 (yes, three) sleep disorders, so I am always tired. I have periodic leg movement disorder, mild narcolepsy, and now, with my last weight gain, sleep apnea. 4) I have high inflammation levels and I get tendinitis and muscle cramps easily. Other than that, I am fine ;-p

Welcome to the EE team!!

Ive belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, its 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!!

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. 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!!!
