Not another year will bite the Twinkie dust!

I am a 31 year old mother of one, a three year old little girl. I am a recent transplant to the Lower Hudson Valley in NY. I have battled body image, weight, and emotional eating for well over half of my life. When I was in high school, I felt that I was so fat and disgusting, yet I was only 120 pounds and 5'4"-really quite skinny actually. But I didn't appreciate it or realize that I was healthy then.

I am a 31 year old mother of one, a three year old little girl. I am a recent transplant to the Lower Hudson Valley in NY. I have battled body image, weight, and emotional eating for well over half of my life. When I was in high school, I felt that I was so fat and disgusting, yet I was only 120 pounds and 5'4"-really quite skinny actually. But I didn't appreciate it or realize that I was healthy then. At most, I could have used regular activity to be more "fit" and "toned" but otherwise, I was no where near overweight. Now, 17 years later, I constantly hover around 185 pounds, give or take, and am considered "obese" according to the BMI chart. I have so many emotional issues but I don't know how to identify them or to get past them and I know that without that, whatever success I have in weight loss is probably only temporary until I learn to believe in myself and love myself as I should. How does one learn this?? I just don't know.

So, my goals here are:
Health/Weight:
*to make consistently healthy choices in food over 85% of each day
*to make the recommended water consumption a regular occurrence
*to make activity of some kind a regular part of my life, starting out with 3-4 days a week and working up
*to reach a healthy weight range, anywhere from 125-140lbs

Mental/Emotional:
*to believe in myself
*to learn to identify feelings and to accept them instead of numbing them with food
*to learn about myself, who I am, what I want from my life, and to work toward it
*to get out of my own shell, out of my own way, and start doing things I want to do

Oh sweetie, it is never too late unless you give up on yourself - Never ever give up on yourself.

When I joined in 2006 - I didn't come back for 2 years! I am ever thankful that I did come back and I am thrilled that you came back too!

I will be here for the rest of my life, tracking my daily foods "no matter what!" I will never be obese again!

Sandra, I was on SP for a long time before I got more involved, too - I think it's all just a 'process' that may work differently for each person but some of us seem to 'need' to pop in and out for awhile before it catches on. Glad you're on track now and I wish you the very best with your journey!!
