Live in true comfort

No more impulse eating and fat girl thinking. Saying "Yes!" to me.

After 20 years of fat gains, losses, and more gains I've finally overcome emotional eating and am living a healthy lifestyle. I never believed this day would come. NEVER. Yes, for others, but I thought I was too weak. From the ashes of sadness, pessimism and despair have come joy and hope, something I want to share with sparkfriends.

No more impulse eating and fat girl thinking. Saying "Yes!" to me.

After 20 years of fat gains, losses, and more gains I've finally overcome emotional eating and am living a healthy lifestyle. I never believed this day would come. NEVER. Yes, for others, but I thought I was too weak. From the ashes of sadness, pessimism and despair have come joy and hope, something I want to share with sparkfriends.

I'm a homeschooling mother of many with 100 pounds left to lose. In my "before kids" days I worked as a researcher in one of the sciences. I gave up my position 15 years ago to homeschool and started putting on the weight. Bad habits, boredom, and forgetting to care for myself have resulted in my being uncomfortable in this body. I'm enjoying meeting new spark friends and am finding the journey much easier this time thanks to the community here.

I've been MIA for 5.5 months. I've noticed that my spark friends with large families are struggling. I think we have so many others to put before ourselves. I'm trying to put myself first so I can get healthy and actually have more to give. I hope all is well!

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

"You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistake, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space."
-Johnny Cash

I have really missed talking to you. But, I am glad that you have found something that works for you. I hope that life is treating you well and that everything is calm for the moment with the kids. My little guy started kinder and is loving it. I am waiting for the free time that was supposed to show up. It seems to be filling with other stuff. I guess that is how life goes. I am down about 45 pounds, now. Very slow but, I really feel like it is sustainable. So that is good.

I hope your joy is going well. I love SP but sometimes it is too much on the computer.
