Dear Jamie, We are here for you. Take advantage of all Spark has to offer. Stay involved with the teams you choose and keep writing down you food. It works if you work it! We will be your support system. Take a look at my page and check out the WW At Home team I'm on as well.I use both Spark And WW and have maintained at goal for a year now. It is possible to do. I am an emotional eater as well. Don't ever give up because you will conquer this and you are worth it.

It's important to blog daily too or at least a few times a week. I admit I haven't been doing that lately and i need to get back to that. Writing really helps.

Take a look at all the different postings here I do. There is a lot of information on this team to help you out.

I actually wrote this yesterday when I first joined this sparkteam but when I hit "post", the site messed up and my post was erased. Iíll keep it short this time because I really donít feel like typing it all again.

I noticed it yesterday that I have started sneaking food. Hiding from my husband and daughter while I eat a snack. I hide from my husband so he wonít say anything to me about it and I hide from my daughter so I wonít have to share with her. I lie to my husband and hide foods that I donít like so that weíll go buy groceries so I can get what I do want. When I go to the laundry room at our apartment I try to squeeze my loads so that I can do fewer and use the extra money to get a snack from the vending machine. I even eat food off my daughterís plate when sheís not looking. When my husband calls me on the his way home from work, I search the apartment for wrappers that I forgot to throw away. I try making a grocery list and sticking to it but either my husband gets snacks or I end up walking to the gas station for chips. I drink water to try to curb my hunger but even after 3-4 cups in an hour, I still want to eat. I kept a food diary for a few days but I forget to write things down, miscalculate calories or I get frustrated because halfway through the day Iíve used about 80% of my calories and unless I only eat a few bites for dinner I know Iíll go over my calories so I just say screw it and end up going extremely over. Iíve planned my meals out the day before but itís so hard to stick to it. When waiting for lunch or dinner time Iím constantly checking the clock and looking in the fridge. I feel like a crack addict waiting for a fix. I walk about 1 Ĺ-2 miles a day about 5-6 days a week but since I canít control my eating itís not causing me to lose weight. Exercise is easy for me now that Iíve found the time for it but I feel like my eating has gotten more out of control.

I donít have a good support system. Iím not a social person, I donít have friends or family. My husband is always either too easy or too hard on me. One day heís getting me a treat that I didnít even ask for and the next day heíll get onto me for getting seconds of dinner. We are financially challenged and live in a small motel apartment, I donít have a vehicle or money. I stay home with my daughter and I am basically stuck all day. I need a support system but I just donít know how to get one anymore. The people I do know around me are either not serious about their weight loss and health or want the quick fix and into the fad lo-carb diets. I know that these people are not the people I want to be around. If you have unhealthy friends, you will be unhealthy.
