Hi, Katherine! Welcome to the Never Been Skinny Team! First of all, seriously, congratulations for making this step, and while you're young, that's so fabulous. I was really touched by what I read on your page, and all I have to say is STAY. Stay on SparkPeople, stay on your teams. Don't let your home situation pull you down. Yes, it's going to be hard, especially without the home support, but you can do it. There are so many people here who are married and have the family situation of no support, and they do it. You DESERVE this. You deserve to feel happy and light and cared about, and believe me, you will. You are not pathetic for failure in the past. You didn't have the right tools to succeed, and if it was a diet instead of a lifestyle change, you weren't set up for success anyway. I am really looking forward to hearing from you on the group, and I hope you'll jump into a challenge or a topic and start posting. We are there to support you, and if you need anything at all, please let me know. I am so excited for this next part of your life, and you are going to make it great! I wish you all the best!
