i really do sit and take pictures when I am bored. And then delete most of them because i look huge.
i loved these glasses.
Well, I am here. Again. More motivated than ever!
-Lose 60 lbs.
-quit smoking, for good.
-Run a consecutive 3 miles, no stopping!
I have this battle with food, that I just cannot control. When I was in high school, I began my battle with food. I was Anorexic, and literally survived off apples and Pepsi. I swam 2-3 hours a day on average, worked a full time job, and went to school. My eating habits went virtually unnoticed by anyone. I was so self conscious, that even at 125lbs (and almost solid muscle) that I WOULD NOT be seen in a bikini, or shorts for that matter. I felt that I wasn't attractive, and life was out of control. In all the mess that my life was at the time, I was able to control only one thing. My wieght.
Life went on, and through the chains of events that occured through the years, I have developed an emotional attachment to food, that is now, undeniably, out of control.
I am trying to get back to a healthy weight for me. I want to feel better about myself, and feel more comfortable in my day to day activities.
Portion control, and doing whatever physical activities I can!
I am awesome. No, really. Ha, I am a tattooed and pierced photographer, and realist. Music and friends are equally as important as family is. Most of my friends I consider my family.

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!
You are- WONDERFUL-cuz you’re you!!! BELIEVE IT!!! operationbeautiful-- END THE FAT TALK!!!
~~best of luck to you on all of your goals!!!
