You can do this! It's all about taking small healthy steps then building onto them. A few good small steps are measuring food portions getting enough water to drink.

Charity, I can tell you that it gets better once you take control of your life. I've been where you are and can tell you that you're doing exactly what you need to do. Your little girl needs you to be healthy and strong so do it for her and do it for yourself.

You've taken the first step so give yourself a big YAY! Take little steps now and see how good you start to feel and be encouraged. Welcome to the team!!!

Hi Charity. Be selfish for a change. Do this for yourself. You would be amazed how happy that first pair of smaller panties can make you! I know it won't solve all of your problems, but it certainly can't hurt.

Hi again Charity. Take that depression and chuck it. You are a wonderful dervering person. Love yourself and your baby, that is all that is important now.

Hi Charity and welcome to the team. I believe there are Spark teams for people dealing with depression. Maybe you could find one and get some helpful tips from other Sparkers.

Hello everyone, my name is Charity and I am finally deciding it is time to make a change in my life. Currently I am 23 y/o, mother to a wonderful 2 1/2 y/o girl and Wife to a US Army Soldier. Although my life is in chaos I have decided there will be no better time than to get my health back.
For several years I was a firefighter but have had to put that on hold for the past few years. Back in June 2007 I got pregnant with my daughter and after being told no working out at all I gained just over 100 lbs even while eating healthy. In January I found out my husband was cheating on me and that put me into a spin. So now that I am starting a new chapter I figure loosing the weight that has brought me down and made me feel bad about myself can only help boost my self confidence and help me feel better about myself.

I know that I cant do it on my own but with encouragement and support I CAN DO IT!

My biggest hope is that once I loose my weight and get healthy I will also loose my depression that I have found with the constant gaining of weight.
