Hi, my name is Christine. This is my second time around. I lost over 20 pounds the first time but quit and gained it all back. Now that my daughters are getting older, they are really looking to me to be a role model and I want to be the best role model possible. First by eating healthy and then by becoming fit. I have a lot of weight to lose and am looking for the support I don't get at home.

It doesn't matter where you go in life, what you do, or how much you have... what matters is who you have beside you along the way.

Hi! My name is Karen and I'm a second timer on sp. I lost over 200 lbs the last time but have put 50 of it back on. I blame my new husband for that. He swept me off on a year long travel adventure and I just had to eat new foods. LOL Not really. My choice to put the food in my mouth. Now I'm back to lose the weight I gained.

Strive to be content. Happiness follows.

Welcome to the team Julie and Musikegirl. We are so glad that you are with us. Our goal is to give you the support and encouragement you need as well as give you a place to help others.

Hi Everyone! I am 24 and have been in a relationship with my boyfriend for six years. Since I graduated high school seven years ago, I have gained 66 lbs. My heaviest was 186 - I got down to 177 last year and stayed at that weight for about six months until the end of the year when I gained back a couple of pounds. I have struggled with chronic migraines (daily in fact) for the past four years and I am hoping that losing the weight will allow me to not only feel better about myself, but help to get rid of the migraines as well.

Hi I'm Julie. I'm 49, married with 3 kids ages 30,28 and 11, only my youngest is living at home. I was doing all right until Christmas then I started slipping back into old habits. I gained some weight back and am having a hard time getting back on track. I really want to get back in control.

Hi I am Michelle, I am single with no kids. I have struggled with my weight for years because of emotional eating. I am just starting the journey of getting that under control and making other things then food my rewards and pick me up in life. I am struggling because food is cheap and readily available and most of the things I want are expensive on my budget. I have decided this is a journey for life and I will have good days and bad days. My job is to learn to handle the bad days so I don't go completely off track. I work as a server so I keep odd hours but am very active at my job so that helps to keep me in balance.

Welcome to the team Gainingmylife. I too struggle with portion control, as I am sure many of us do. But now we don't have to figure it out alone. We can all work together to learn better ways to deal with the things that are holding us back.

Greetings,
I'm a grandmother soon to be 56 YO with 6 grandchildren from my 2 wonderful sons.

I have always battled my weight and was taught eat everything on your plate that was given to you.Proper serving control is something I'm still learning because I was never taught this.

Then there is the emotional eating that I have basicly under control most days. Its taken in 8 months to lose 40 lbs, but I still keep going alone with the assistance of my Sparks Buddies.

Hi my name is Sue. I live in CA with my sons and my husband. I have 3 boys ages 15,21 & 23. I never had a weight problem until the last couple of years. I get frustrated that there is no place to go for support so I'm loving this team. I hit goal and then gained back 10 lbs. so I'm still needing support. Thanks for inviting me to the team.

Sue

It helps a lot just to realize that there are others out there who feel the same as I do.

Hi Tryn,
I am with you. We have alot in common. My struggles have been many of the same, although I never battle anorexia. We also work in the same field. I teach in an EBD program. It can be quite stressful and easy to forget to take care of oneself. I understand the control you mentioned. I also believe the energy we put into control can be diverted into determination. My children are grown but I still want to be a good example for them, to be healthy, to see them go through adulthood. I'm 45 years old and have yet to give myself the respect that I really should have. I don't want to be in this alone either. Tried that; failed many times. We are both strong, having not given up on ourselves. How can I help support you?

I am a mother of three girls, ages 6, 9, and 16. I work as an elementary school Instructional Assistant. I have struggled with weight issues for my entire life. As a teen I was always worried about what others thought of me which led to becoming anorexic. As a young adult I fought my way through the disease and had boughts with bulimia. After getting married I felt more alone than ever before and turned to food as a companion because it was the only thing that I had control of in my life anymore. As I had children I gained more and more weight and stopped caring about myself. Now I have realized that my children deserve a healthy mother and I deserve to be healthy and happy so it is time for a cange.


I am determined to better myself.

I will be healthier and be the mom my daughters deserve.
