Working on my recovery with OA, as i am a recovering COE (compulsive overeater)/binger & bulimic, sugar addict & working on bettering the quality of my life.. The struggles each day for me are overwhelming, and needing tools in my life *such as this site* which put me in a better place emotionally as well as building my strengths and motivation. i am on a journey to a happier, healthier & more well balanced me..

April 28, of 2011 i made the decision that i had enough. my self esteem suffered greatly, i always felt sluggish and unmotivated, my blood pressure was constantly up, and i felt unhealthy..a Diet Pepsi addict, food & sugar addict & seriously downspiraling at a very fast pace. i was at 317 lbs & slowly started to make changes to my diet, to my activity and here i am today. i joined SparkPeople and am 100% ready to continue this journey. It's not only about weight loss for me, but also good health, positivity & happiness, building my self-esteem and improving my quality of life by about 200%.. i am well on my way!! i can do this, and will!

If i could offer any advice to anyone - it would be this.. One step at a time - One day at a time - Remember to stop & breathe often - Don't take on everything at once, and get overwhelmed, build it gradually - Seek ways to love yourself each day - Find positivity & surround yourself with positive people - Don't make excuses, be real & honest with yourself - Find ways to always make yourself accountable & lastly -- do the hard work.. There will always be good days & bad days & in my experience so far, a bad day comes with lessons & growth - look within and find the lesson , rather than dwell on that bad day.. Turn it into something positive..

i have a blog & a facebook page about my weight loss & recovery journey.. links are below ..

My name is Josée, I co-lead the team with three other fantastic members. I have added you as a friend, please do the same. You will find great tools and support here on Sparks.

Don't be shy, will look forward of reading your posts, blogs and of course drop by the team section and check-out the boards. I am also a fellow Canuck, Gatineau, Quebec.

Have a great weekend, Josée

Hey! I found you in the NB team. I'm also from NB, and wanted to add you since we seem to have a lot of similarities. :)
I currently work for a graphics and signage business.
I'm also learning about Buddhism, and spirituality.
I also suffer from binge issues.

I checked your "Sully" facebook page, and your journey is inspirational. I suffer from certain trigger foods as well, and I like the way you're tracking, posting and keeping motivated. I wish I could be so open!

Nice to see a fellow NB'er on here, and good luck with your journey!

Haley
