Thanks Nola,

Yes I've noticed alot of teams fall under or do not interact as much. It's hard to build a team to please everyone(unfortunately) but if at least one person's life is changed than it is worth to have it.

This is our team, all of us and Yes we should make it a great team. we can be there for each other and learn from each other. I know we can all get through this and achieve success. We must not give up nor give in. This journey is tough but can also be beautiful and a time of rediscovery.

Lets all stay active in SP and in this team, maybe not daily (if not possible) but at least a few times a week. Let's share our accomplishments or weaknesses... Whatever it may be. That is why we are here team.

Long-term Goal: To overcome my hesitation and stay focused long enough no matter what happens in my life.

Medium-Term Goal: Reaching my goal 5% at a time.

Short-Term Goal:
*Drink my water daily
*30 min Exercise (and work my way up) 4 times/wk

Like Yesi, I was never overweight growing up, but thougt I was. If I only knew. However, it was always in the back of my mind. Coming from a family where all the women are overweight that was my biggest fear,and that's where I am now. With each of my 4 pregnancies I piled on the lbs. I took eating for 2 to a whole new level. But luckily , within 1-2 yrs. of having birth I would always lose my weight. Except for this last time. My baby is now 4 1/2 yrs. old. I have been super stressed and so tired,it's just not conductive to weight loss. A lot has changed in the last month or so, I'm getting more rest, waking up and exercising almost every day and watching my calories. And it's working!!! For the first time in a long time, I feel like I've got this now!! Since the beginning of Feb. I've already lost 12 lbs. It can only get better from here. It's not always gonna be easy but I'm gonna do it.

I'll go first.

I was not a overweight child nor teenager. Never had a weight issue. Even when at 110-120 lbs. I thought I was fat. Food was not anything I spent so much time thinking about. As it seems now as an adult I am thinking all day long about what am I going to eat. My eating habits are horrendous. I skip meals, don't eat until I am starving or with a headache and than I eat until i'm stuffed. Not enough fiber, veggies, fruit.... Cannot stay away from Chocolate (sweets). But with all that I know that is not the root of my problem. My whole life (all 37 yrs of it) has been an emotional roller-coaster. One year I gain about 80-100 lbs over nite (after motherhood) and didn't even see it coming. I've fallen into a "I guess" depression and haven't yet surpassed it. One day I can be all up and motivated and another day I can be like "what's the point of anything"
I take it day by day that is all I can handle and pray that one day it will all make sense again and I am free from any recentments, strongholds, anger, sadness. I will find myself again and no longer get lost inside myself again. I will no longer hide my pain behind the weight. Maybe that's what's happened to me.... PAIN! Growing Pains! Life's Pains! Childhood Pains! Teenagehood Pains! Womanhood Pains. Pain, Pain, Pain!!!


Hmmm! I just wrote a blog (unintentionally)
