I started on Sparkpeople last Friday. I have been finding so many useful tools to use. The best part is all the encouragement we give each other. I am going through some difficult times right now and I need all the encouragement I can get.
I broke my back a year ago Easter Sunday night. It didn't heal right and left me in pain and with scoliosis. In December, I had an operation to put rods and screws in to straighten my spine. I couldn't do ANYTHING the first three months. It was easy for me to get depressed and use food as a comforter.
My marraige is faling apart on top of the back problems. This added more stress and comforte eating. I will be leaving this weekend to get my life back in order BY AND FOR MYSELF.
I am bound and determined to win over the depression, reach out to old friends and make new friends, and get my body healthy. I want to thank everyone that has encouraged me so far. It means so much to me.
