I'm ready to take the first step towards my new Lifestyle!

Hello. I joined SparkPeople on Friday August 3, 2112.

I have lot's of weight to lose (over 100 pounds) and am excited about getting started...again. I am hopeful that SparkPeople can help me because it is more of a lifestyle than a diet. I've failed many diets in the past. SparkPeople looks different...I'm eager to learn all about it!

Member Since: 8/3/2012

SparkPoints: 1,409

Fitness Minutes: 945

My Goals:
1.Make God first place in my life instead of food.

2. Lose over 100 pounds...and keep it off.

3. Learn how to live in the moment!

My Program:
Eat 1500 calories or less a day.

Track my food intake daily.

Exercise at least 60 minutes a day for five days a week.

Personal Information:
About five months ago I called a Bariatric Surgery Center and asked to speak with a psychologist to see if he could help me stop my compulsive overeating in order for me to have weight loss surgery. I felt that if I didn't stop my constant overeating the surgery would not really work. Since then I have been seeing the psychologist every week. He diagnosed me with Binge Eating Disorder and worked with me on identifying and controlling emotions that cause me to binge, portion control, feelings about myself, fears...

On Friday, August 3, 2012 he told me we could now move to the weight loss portion of the program. I signed up on SparkPeople that night! Beginning the next day, I began to log my food intake and exercise.

Right now (August 13,2012), I am planning on still working with the Psychologist and being active on SparkPeople. I no longer want to have the surgery because I feel prepared and supported for this lifestyle change that I am beginning!



Other Information:
Things I love: God, cabins in the woods, country roads, lakes and beaches, old charming cottages, children, Fall, Christmas, my cats Eli and Emelia, Shabby Chic decor, picket fences, Vermont, Maui, meatloaf with green beans and new potatoes and my biggest support, Mom!

Just thinking about you! Hope you are still doing well! I just had a bad week with a cold and then a lot of other family stuff and gained 3 pounds! Yikes! But i'm not giving up... just re-focusing and starting to track my food again and trying to get back and consistently exercise again! Remember we are worth it! And anything worth having is worth working toward! You can do it! Smiles and Blessings! - Kelly

Just thinking about ya! Whatever you do... don't give up on yourself. Fight against the urge to believe that you can't do this... that you just can't control binges etc... YOU CAN! Just like with God's grace... every day is a new day to begin a new! Bless you and Have a wonderful day! I've struggled with my eating this week and probably won't lose much. But i'm not going to flip out! What's past is past and again... tomorrow is a new day! Smiles - Kelly :)
