Hi Jo,

Welcome to our team. Sparkpeople is a great place to be to continue with your goals of weight loss/control and not comparing yourself to others. We are all in various places in our lives and battling the same enemy....overeating. I joined this team because I loved the name! I feel like that is what I am doing is taking my life back! I want to be in charge not my appetite or lack of self restraint!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving. We all have much to be thankful for.

This can be a successful journey for you. emoticon emoticon

Thank you, Elle.
I'm getting a slow start right now because of so much going on behind the scenes but I hope to have my profile page set by tomorrow.

Hi everyone.
My name is Jo and my main goal is to live my life with no excuses.

My weight loss goal is 70-75 pounds (optimistically) though I think I could be happy losing only 50-55 pounds and maintaining it.

I've battled with my weight all my life and have also chose to fight anorexia and bulimia with hospitalization. I haven't engaged in the behavior for more than 15 years but the constant comparing myself to others (part of my eating disorders) lasted until last year. Comparing myself to others caused me to drop out of other weight loss programs like Weight Watchers, Weigh Down Workshop, First Place, etc. Comparing myself caused me to restrict my calories too much while I was in the weight loss programs.

Last year I went to a program at the hospital and I finally think I have won the battle with comparing myself to others. Now I only look at myself and what I am and what I want to be.

I hope all of you find the courage and encouragement you need to reach your goals.
Thanks for welcoming me here.

~jo
