Hi, I want to say welcome and let you know you are not alone. I can truly relate to your situation. I, too, feel as though I have a wealth of information about how to make healthy food choices and an abondance of exercise options, including my son who is a personal trainer, and yet here I am in the same place I've been for years. The struggle to lose weight and get more active remains. I'm not sure what is holding me back, but I'm going to keep pushing and with all the tools and support that's available here on SP, I'm sure we can be successful.
Nice to meet you. I'm Caddy. I haven't been kind to my body, and now I have to fix a few habits and lifestyle ideas. Everybody that puts out the question that you have, has been told to start tracking their food. My guess is to start there. I'll report back to you and tell you if that works. I am supposed to weigh in on December 1st.
Keep walking by spirit and you will carry out no fleshly desire at all. Galations 5:16

Hi, my name is Ginger and I desperately need motivation and support to get this weight off!! I have struggled with weight all my life so this is nothing new to me. Sometimes it seems I could teach all the classes perfectly........but head knowledge doesn't translate into losing. I've been eating pretty well and doing a lot of exercising over the last year and a half, but have not lost anything. Seems weird, but i know that stress and lack of sleep are issues also. A lot of the last 70 pounds were due to medication and health issues, but I have weened myself off all meds and just live by the motto "suck it up, Cupcake", to deal with the pain. I have really bad reactions to all the pain and muscle meds that they have given me so therein lies some of the stress. I'm also hoping my new home will provide some much needed stress relief. Check out my sparkpage for some more info.
So I'm here to cheer everyone on and hope that getting into the team will relieve some stress and we'll see what happens.
Which came first, the tornado or the travel trailer??
