My name is Michele, and I am a complete newbie to Sparkpeople. So far I am so impressed with the positive reinforcement and tools available. A little about me, I'm a mother to three amazing children, ages 14, 11, and 9. I've been married to my best friend for 15 years. I've had weight issues since I stopped playing sports at about 20yrs old. I had been active playing basketball, volleyball, and softball through high school and some college. Little did I know you can't eat the way I always had when you're not running and playing sports constantly. (just a little sarcasm there). I gained 30lbs with each pregnancy and then entered a battle with depression after losing a brother at the age of 41 and miscarrying our fourth pregnancy less than two years after the birth of my youngest child. Nearly two years ago I took the step to have lapband surgery. I lost 40lbs over 9 months, but struggled with the restrictions and self control issues. I'm currently working with a therapist to help deal with my food addiction and finding ways to cope and make a healthy life for my family and I. I look forward to being apart of the team and can't wait to meet you all. Best wishes! Michele
