A little bit about me....

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

My name is Ellen and I have been over weight for about 10 years now. Before that I was healthy and fit. Then my daughters father died of brain cancer and my world as I knew it stopped. I started eating all the wrong foods and did not care what I was doing to my body. I refused to face it. I would avoid looking at myself in the mirror and totally denying that my body was changing and getting bigger every day. I was addicted to carbs mostly. Food was the only thing besides my daughter and son that kept me going. I think it covered me with a warm comfy blanket at the time I was eating it, but I always felt guilty after words. Like I had done something bad. For some unexplained reason I keep eating and here I am 115 pounds over weight and I am not really sure what to do, but I know I have to get back in shape. I'm done being over weight. emoticon

    Welcome to sparkpeople!

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Emotional eating has put me in the same predicament as you 100lbs overweight and trying to work my way back to a healthy weight.
    Spark people is a really great resource, I'm already seeing some great results and I know you can too! Take a look around the site, I really recommend joining teams, making spark friends and blogging, it makes losing weight a little bit easier and a lot more fun.
    Glad to have you here!
