Shared Food Tracker
I currently work for a company that makes diesel engines. I am 24 and ready to get back into shape. Years ago I was a national gymnast, but after an injury that prevented me from continuing gymnastics, I fell into a rut and gained a lot of weight. In addition, I got diagnosed with a really rare kidney disease for which I take several medications - the medications make me gain weight too, so I feel like the odds are stacked against me. Still, though, I want to get back to my goal weight and be healthier in general. I refuse to let this kidney disease beat me.
Get back to my goal weight: 105lbs, eat healthier, exercise regularly.
Tracking foods, finding a community to exercise with, finding healthy alternatives for my favorite foods!
Originally from Pennsylvania. Now live in Indiana.
Love to read, sing, write, scrapbook...

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! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
