I MAY not have a LOT to lose, but the fight to lose is the same. No matter what weight, it's not easy to get where you'd like to be - or even feeling more fit & healthy. I'm never giving up the fight; I was at goal once & will do this again; it just takes more due to some impairments now.
I'm STARTING OVER EVERYONE!!!!!!!! Too many gains and not enough losses.....I am looking to get back to a fairly good weight where I feel better. My 'imperfections' are always going to be there, but at least they'd be "smaller"!
ALSO hoping to get this page figured out; today's the first day I have actually SEEN this!
I'm currently about setting up my goals page; still learning the ropes.
I want to do some "light" forms of exercise as I have some permanent injuries to deal with.
Also, since I don't count calories I need to be able to enter my foods & let the system count them for me....Then again; I truly know nil about 'exchanges', carbs, proteins, etc.
If ANYONE can help in that area, feel free.
I'm 56 years old and married for 36 1/2 yrs. Have a 35 year old son who married about 1 1/2 yrs. ago. My daughter-in-law's a real sweetheart. Have 3 'grandcats'........
Currently work part time in a very small machine shop. I am the quality control person, as well as secondary worker, parts cleaner, etc. have been employed there since my sone was in middle school.
In 2003 I was in a car accident; having been hit by a semi. I had just undone my seatbelt as we were nearing the driveway; bad move & lesson well-learned. After time being poked, prodded, and tested, and hours with a maxillofacial/dental surgeon (The BEST ever, in my opinion!), I was sent home to recover. I ended up with a heel/ankle fracture; common in car accidents I'm told. That was extensive enough to be a permanent problem; hence part time work. Laid up 9 months recovering. But - unlike many who meet up with a semi, I made it through. Hit us head on, or as close as it gets; and husband SHOULD have been hurt the
I LOVE to read just about any romances, but favor Danielle Steel. And like autobiographies and some mystery stories.
Am way into (or was when our cable system carried it) COURT/TRU TV shows; always enjoyed watching them figure those cases out. Now I enjoy "Next Top Model", most shows on TLC like 18 & counting (?) , Trauma Life in the ER, and any of the weight themed ones. The rest is just far too "copycat" for me.

Welcome to the EE team!!
Iíve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, itís 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 ďstickiedĒ 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. Iíve 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!
~~best of luck to you on all of your goals!!!
