I joined Sparkpeople in July 2010. It's by far the best online resource I have found. I even have the app on my phone to keep me accountable during the day. The food and fitness trackers have been a blessing, but even moreso is the Sparkpeople community. Blessed to have met some inspiring people.

I have been fighting with weight and an eating disorder for most of my life, but more than usual in the last seven years. I have joined OA this year in hopes that I can have the support of others like myself and learn to overcome my issues surrounding food and my addiction to binge eating. It has been very hard getting real with myself, but it was very necessary.

If I could give anyone advice that is having similar struggles, it is to truly love yourself, accept yourself, know that you are ENOUGH and to start to learn how to take care of you above all else. I've noticed that people that hold onto weight are those that don't take the time to truly nurture themselves outside of numbing their pain with food or by coping with food. Get out there and be active, write, and be around like-minded individuals who understand you.

That's why Spark is so great. We all cheer each other on. Life is hard enough, we all need more support. LET's do this together!

My goal is to lose 85 lbs this year (2013).

    Thank you for the picture comments! I didn't realize that you had been active on SP recently because your activity doesn't show up in my friend feed, which is what I rely on to stay on top of my friends. I'm so sorry that I've been negligent!

    I read through a couple of your recent blogs - the oxygen bar sounded interesting! We don't have anything like that here in central Illinois. I hope you're doing well and I'll try to do a better job of checking in. :)
