First day and feeling very determined

Sunday, November 03, 2013

A bit overwhelmed by the website, but determined to keep at it. I have to do something. My overweight body cannot handle much more. At 4'8" and over 160 pounds, I can't get any bigger. I want to be around to watch my daughter grow up and grow old with my husband. This past year has been really horrible. I have been stuffing my face in order to numb my emotions. I miss my mom and dad so much. Success starts with self love, and I need to learn to love myself.

    So glad you joined Spark People! The site is a bit daunting at first, but you'll catch on and there are so many wonderful resources and so many great people who will support your journey. I found your page through the Meditation team. I also recommend the Thanksgiving community if you like to post gratitudes. Good luck, Rachel

    There is a lot on the site, but just take what you like and leave the rest. Use the "Getting Started Guide", ask questions in the forums or in your teams, etc.. you can do it!
    The things I like best are the trackers. That really helps me. Second best is I love chatting with my Spark friends in my teams.

    Good luck! I hope you reach your goals one step at a time!
