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!!!
Moma Bear is right. Take it one day at a time. Read all you can on this site. I think it's the best all around. I've learned a lot and I can say I've opened up quite a bit. I will be successful and you will too.
Hi Mae and welcome to Spark People and our Managing Diabetes Group where you will receive lots of support and encouragement from everyone. Remember to just take one day at a time on this journey of a lifetime. This journey consists of many small steps, a few speed bumps and pot holes, and a lot of fun. I will be here for you and try to help you on this journey to your goals. You have come to the right place. Take advantage of what Spark has to offer. I want to see you accomplish your goal(s). Stay focused and keep a positive attitude as this will be a great help to you in your daily life!!! Smile although sometimes that is the hardest, but it really helps!!! And, if nothing else, it makes people wonder what you're up to. Use your fitness and nutrition tracker daily. Watch your portion control. Be sure to drink plenty of water (8 - 8oz glasses a day) and walk. Water and walking will help you on this journey of weight loss and lowering numbers. Start small if that is all you can do or have time to do and add to it as you are able. Even 5-10 minutes several times a day adds up to bigger numbers and will keep you moving. It's good to meet and have you with us. If I can be of any help, please let me know. I am here for you. God's blessings to you. Hugs, Helen
