Sweet tooth - just a suggestion (if you haven't) - have yourself checked for diabetes as it could be an underlying cause of your sweet tooth. You always think that you know the signs but I've had a friend recently that had no outward indication that he was diabetic but he was.
Congratulations on taking the first step. You'll find great support here as well as new ways of thinking. For example, if you're craving ice cream, find a swap that will satisfy that craving, but not be quite so fattening...like frozen yogurt or a fudge bar. Find enough swaps and a lot of those cravings may go away. Good luck!
If you do what you always do, you will get what you always get. To get something different you have to do what you never did.

So glad you came to Spark People ... might I suggest you open your Spark page for others to visit you .... the camaraderie is just fantastic in this place .... getting folks to visit and help you as well as you helping them is a tremendous encouragement for us all .....
Ice cream is my downfall also ...... I have a very, very small bowl that I use now ... only takes a scoop rather than 4 in the big dish ..... if I deprive myself I would probably eat the whole gallon .... a little is better than none for sure ...
Hope to see you around the message boards .... I'm in the Xenia area myself.
I wish you much success in achieving your goals.

I have a 3 year old daughter she is my world and reason for waking up in the morning, I have been married for 4 years this past december. We both are overweight and when we got together we just became even more unhealthy because we just ate whatever we wanted im ashamed to say. My daughter loves fruits and veggies and i love vegging out with her. Since I was a very young teenager i had always had unwanted body and face hair i thought well my genes were hairy, wasnt until last week when i watched a special on pcos that i realized i have many of the symptoms. my doctor always said i couldnt have children but i have my daughter, i dont know if i have cysts but i know its very hard for me to lose weight and im hairy and i hate it, and as cliche as it sounds i hate the hair so much that i would eat to try and focus on something else but it became more difficult to focus on something else when every other day i have to shave my face!! then i had a bigger problem i was overweight im 5foot exactly and i weight 230 pounds i hate being fat, every month i tell my husband we are going to do this for sarah and for ourselves because i dont want to die and then that little monster in my mind that says mmmm icecream sounds great attacks me i have a horrible sweet tooth, but i feel i really have got to kill that monster and live a long healthy life monster your going down!!
