I was very active in Spark People for almost a year and successfully lost 30 pounds. Then I fell away from the program and was delighted that I was able to maintain the weight loss on my own. I never truly reached my goal of 125 pounds, but I felt so good at 146 that I didn't really care, as long as I didn't start gaining the weight back.
Life has recently dealt me an emotional blow that I am afraid will set me back. My husband and I are going through separation and most likely divorce after 33 years of marriage. Since I am truly an emotional eater....I felt it was time to rejoin Spark People and seek out the support I got the first time around. During the last month I gained almost 5 pounds back and that scares me to death. I am happy to be back here and hope that some of my old friends are still around. I also hope to find many new friends while on this journey to reach my original goal and feel great about myself once more.

Member Since: 1/12/2008

Fitness Minutes: 940

My Goals:
To lose an additional 20-25 pounds and get healthy and happy once again.

My Program:
I have never been a water drinker, nor am I too keen on exercise. I plan to change all that. From now on it is at least 6 glasses of water (or more) daily and 20-30 minutes of exercise. I will carefully monitor food intake and do my darndest to stay upbeat and positive while on this journey. I welcome Spark Mail and would really like a few "good buddies" to share the journey with.

Personal Information:
My name is Sandi and I will be 61 in June of 2009. I have been married for 33years and have 3 children (finally all out on their own since October). I retired from teaching three years ago after 35 years, and love spending time with my two adorable grandchildren, Nevaeh (6) and Treyse (2). I also like to cross-stitch, play the piano, read, and garden. I love to do crafts of all kinds and like to keep busy.

Other Information:
I have three sisters who can eat anything their heart desires and never gain weight . I am totally the opposite. All I have to do is SMELL food and I gain a pound! It is my hope that joining this group will be the incentive I need to reach the goals I have set for myself. If ican help someone else along the way....that's even BETTER!!!!
