Today is the day!

Sunday, January 13, 2008

I just joined this site yesterday and found so much info and groups its hard to comprend it all, but i am confident this is exactly what i need to lose weight. I find i get bored and so i eat. i know that is one of my problems, another is excepting myself as i am.. loving my self and being realistic that i might never be a skinny woman and do i want to?? not sure. I think we all need to realize why we are over weight. How did we get like this?? for me it was being sexually abused when i was young and so gained weight so wouldnt get attention from men.. so now have to deal with that and lose the weight for me.. to feel better about me!! today has been a good day .. didnt eat a lot.. excerized and feel so good.. this is the day to start a new life..!!!

    It is very overwhelming!! I joined awhile ago but just now am getting my feet wet. People have been so supportive, even when I don't say a lot. I joined a few teams, but don't find that the best for me, I just end up lurking and don't participate! You have to find your own spot. I have yet to find it. My daughter in law has been great support for me, she has lost 40 pounds since joining SparkPeople. Me?? well I lost 20 pounds and have kept that off for several years, but have lost only 2 since joining SP. The main thing for me is all the information to be gleaned, and I am going to just keep reading until it sinks in!
Welcome to SparkPeople, and the best to you!!

    Sonia's right. Dive into all that SP has to offer and you'll find support everywhere. I found so many people with common interests and goals by clicking on to other peoples friends. The success stories and following other SP member's progress is amazingly motivating for me.

I'm so sorry that you had such a terrible thing happen to you when you were a girl. I had the same experience but came to realize that I continued to give that person power over me by living my life around that experience. It's incredibly empowering to TAKE your life back and to finally make it what you envisioned it to be all along. Success is the best revenge isn't it? And the pride that you feel when you meet one goal at a time is amazing.

I surely hope that you can find that in yourself. We're here whenever you need to vent or when you struggle. Don't starve yourself! Don't beat yourself up if you falter from your plan. Pick up where you left off and keep going.

You CAN do this for yourself. It's about time! You deserve it! Just imagine the control over your life that you have finally obtained. Good luck and please keep me informed about your progress. I'm anxious to here how well you'll adjust to your new happy life.

Keep the faith and determination and you'll do great!

    If you find and join SparkTeams that fit your interests and needs, you will find buddies that have things in common with you (best place to talk to friends you have never met, and get all the support and motivation you will need). SparkPeople really works, but the key is you and consistency. Stay active on the forum and post frequently. Track your food, drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and add exercise to your day. Take baby steps, and before you know it those baby steps become giant leaps. SparkPeople is free, but the rewards are priceless.
