This time I will keep it off!

I have lost weight before and the pounds seemed to come off fairly easily. Unfortunately, I would slowly ease back into my old habits and I would gain some or all of the weight back. I know this yo-yo dieting is not good for my body and I need to establish healthy habits that I can live with. I do not really like to exercise and I am an emotional eater.

I have lost weight before and the pounds seemed to come off fairly easily. Unfortunately, I would slowly ease back into my old habits and I would gain some or all of the weight back. I know this yo-yo dieting is not good for my body and I need to establish healthy habits that I can live with. I do not really like to exercise and I am an emotional eater. My weight has hit an all time high this summer. I have slowly gained 35 pounds over the last 4 1/2 years. Controlling my weight has become increasingly difficult since I hit my late 30's. I do have a hormone imbalance and that has been part of the problem but not all of the problem. I know I eat for the wrong reasons. I know I need to reprogram myself. I hope to form new habits. I am not on a "diet" but am on a journey to change my lifestyle.

Welcome to the EE team!!

I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!!

Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post.

Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success!

You are- WONDERFUL-cuz you’re you!!! BELIEVE IT!!! operationbeautiful-- END THE FAT TALK!!!

~~best of luck to you on all of your goals!!!
