Welcome CATESUH! emoticon welcome to SparkPeople, and the Portland team!

Boy do I recognize how you're feeling. I was right there not so long ago, before I joined SP. You can absolutely do this, and by this I mean make yourself a priority, find time to do what you want/need to do, and decide to improve your life and health.

Stop by often and let us know how you're doing, yea? Good luck!

emoticon Good for you that you joined a soccer team. SparkPeople has a lot of inspiration. Find some other teams that you can relate to and get involved. You have nothing to lose but weight and bad health.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Did it happen overnight? Suddenly, when I glance in a mirror or I see a recent photo, I can't even believe what I am seeing. Somebody has taken over my body!! That is NOT me!! Or, uh.. wait. It IS me! :(

I wear black outfits everyday to hide how I look and how I feel. I'm sick of black!! I want to wear and feel great in cute clothes again. I want that small sense of pride when my jeans fit loosly on my hips and my t-shirt doesn't fit snug around my belly like I'm 7 months pregnant. I want to feel sexy again!!

So I'm giving this a shot. I hope I'm motivated enough to stick to something... because seriously.. I really lack motivation. I work full time.. I'm about to go back to school full time.. I'm married.. and I have a son and a stepdaughter, neither living with us but visit often. I also have an 8 month old puppy and a 1 year old cat. I joined an outdoor soccer team and will play games every Sunday this fall.

I'm very busy. I don't want to bee too busy for this. It would be awesome to find some inspiration!!
