It's amazing how much better I feel now that I have been doing Sparkpeople for a little more than 2 months. The 7.5 pounds I lost is really only the beginning. Since I started this program, my self-esteem has improved, I am happier, my relationship with my husband is better, and I have stopped drinking alcohol (a habit I was worried about since all four of my grandparents were addicted at one time in their lives).
Since my husband and I are considering having children, it is important to me that I develop good habits to pass onto my children. As a former anorexic and binge eater, I can finally say that I truly feel that I am taking care of myself and that I am closer to being ready to start teaching a family about HEALTY habits. My journey is far from over, but I finally feel like I am truly headed down the right path, not towards being skinny or being out of control, but towards being the best me I can be.
