Howdy! I'm Robin! I finally decided I was done with excuses not to be healthy. I have over one hundred pounds to loose and plan to do it one pound at a time. I'm a single, with no kids, school teacher. Yep - the stereotypical old maid school marm. I love my work and my life except for health issues. My hope is that Spark People and I can work together to make a healthier me.

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much! - Helen Keller

Start every day ...

Robin, I'm so sorry you're going through such a hard time. Life can be cruel sometimes and we can lose our desire to care about ourselves anymore. I can only offer you this: a plea for you to nurture yourself right now.

Please sit down in a quiet moment, close your eyes, and feel the loving arms of all the people who care about you, including those of us on spark. We care about you and are sending prayers your way for healing. Give yourself permission to weep if you need to, and to know that you are cared for. Eating the right foods and exercising may seem inconsequential with everything else going on in your family, but when you take care of yourself, you're better able to take care of others - so it is really a selfless act to eat right and exercise.

It's hard but try not to beat yourself up. When thinks calm down and your ready you know where we all are. You lost weight before here and know that you can, so try not to sweat it. you'll know when your ready and we'll be right here waiting. emoticon

From one Robin to another please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I completely understand why you are having such a difficult time and while I know it's hard not to, try not to beat yourself up about it. I had lost 32 lbs and then put 20 of it back on. I had eaten myself out of all my beautiful new thin clothes. But luckily for me I found SparkPeople. Through this program and everyone's support and encouragement I have lost almost 7 lbs. I join as many challenges as I can because I am by nature a competitive person and the challenges make me follow through on eating healthy and exercising.

So hang in there. We are all here to help you so just let us know what we can do for you.
