Hi and welcome to the team. I can imagine that there are some emotional things to deal with at your job. I don't know about you, but I eat when I can't sort through all my feelings. Perhaps journalling will help you discover how the extra weight came on. Best of luck to you.

Super to have you joining our SparkTeam!

Bet there is RARELY a dull moment on YOUR job! :-)

I'm a big fan of Michael Pollan's philosophy: Eat food (i.e. REAL food, not stuff that comes in boxes!), mostly plants, not too much. Keeps it simple!

See you 'round the message boards!

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

emoticon and emoticon to the team. This is a great site to learn about how to take it off and keep it off!! Best wishes!


Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

Hi. I am a nursing supervisor in a prison. What a hoot. Had lost 65 and kept it off a few yrs. I was a small for long enough that is the size of almost all the clothes I own. I started to gain when I started this job. Don't see a good reason for it, so I am watching what and how much of what I put in my mouth. Trying to exercise at least 10 a day too.
I read some of the happy diet and am avoiding processed foods for my overall health.
