Go Val Go!

Humor, spirit, joy of life, laughter, love, and fun...they are the core emotions that have encompassed my life...and the emotions I am MOST comfortable with in my own skin. For me, these emotions are deeply rooted with family and food has always been center stage when family gathered. I realized that my love for food is connected to these "happy" feelings. I use to be a size 9 pant and loved it. I have always had to watch what I ate though to maintain a thin wasteline. I gained 50 lbs. ...
Humor, spirit, joy of life, laughter, love, and fun...they are the core emotions that have encompassed my life...and the emotions I am MOST comfortable with in my own skin. For me, these emotions are deeply rooted with family and food has always been center stage when family gathered. I realized that my love for food is connected to these "happy" feelings. I use to be a size 9 pant and loved it. I have always had to watch what I ate though to maintain a thin wasteline. I gained 50 lbs. with my first child and lost all but 10 lbs of it. I quit smoking and gained 40 pounds. At the time, I was quite upset but thrilled that I had quit smoking. I also kept another 10 lbs. on after my second child...so there you have it....60 pounds that STILL need to come off 20 years later!!! So, here I am on Sparkpeople....trying to keep on posting....keep on blogging....tracking my food, water, and exercise....hoping to keep my weight loss woes in the forefront rather than on the back burner.
