You're not alone. Most of us here on Spark have turned to food to assuage our emotions or troubles. But, it doesn't have to be like this. You can make a change. Instead of eating your way into depression, how about eating your way to good health ?
We can't change the past, but we can influence and change the future. If you read my spark page, you'll learn that twice in my life I weighed over 200+ pounds. A few years ago, I made a decision that wasn't going to happen a third time. I decided to move forward instead of back.
I know this all seems daunting, but you can make changes. You can lose weight and be healthy. Do you need inspiration ? Look no further than member INDYGIRL. at her highest weight, she weighed over 460+ pounds. In two years, she's lost over 200 pounds. Many other members have lost weight and regained their health. You can too.
You just start with some simple changes. Don't try to do everything at once or you will end up frustrated. Set some simple goals to start. Example, if you're not used to eating 6-9 servings of fresh fruit and veggies, set a goal to eat 2-3 servings each day for one week. If you're not used to drinking 8 glasses of water, set a goal to drink 2-4 glasses each day for one week. if you're not used to regular exercise, set a goal to take a 30 minute walk each day for one week. once you've achieved those goals, then you set new ones.
And that's how good health starts. It starts by eating a couple extra servings of veggies, drinking your water and taking a daily walk.
