Julie, Let me you to Spark! Sounds like you have been down quite the road before you have decided to take your journey. This site can seem overwhelming..don't be scared to death! Start with one thing at a time: maybe the Food Tracker wuld be good. I know that when I sat and looked at what foods I was putting into my body and why, it was easier getting started. When you feel like you can, start moving! Even the walk out to your mailbox is exercise! Moving even 5 min. a day will make a difference! I will add you as a friend and be helpful when I can, okay? I look forward to sharing in our journeys!

Hi, my name is Julie and I live in Southern California. I just joined Spark People and am learing my way around I never had a weight problem until my late 30s early 40s when I gained 30 lbs. I was able to lose it using an early plan of Weight Watchers. In my late 40s I had a series of lifte events happen to me and the way I coped was to eat. The problem was that I did not stop when I gained 30 lbs. this time. I kept going and going until I weigh 280 lbs. at 56 years old. I just completed chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer and thought I would treat myself to a trip to PA to see my cousins. Booked my trip and checked on seat size and found out that I am most likely to big to fit in the seat. I am horrified and humilated and will have to cancel trip. I want and need to lose the weight for me and my health. I have been comfortable in my little limted life of 280 lbs. for around 4 years now but this incident with the plane seat makes me aware that their is much more life out there. I don't want to be stuck here any longer but it is comfortable and familiar. Just confused on which eating plan to use.
