emoticon to the team! I can identify with all of your issues. I was where you are 7 years ago. I found using the Trackers here on Spark really helps. When you put in what you ate and find out how many calories you put into your body it's a real eye opener. Also, when you track the number of steps you walked for exercise it is such a rush to see how many calories you burned. Get a pedometer and track steps in the back room. I aim for 10 000 a day or more to keep my weight down. It becomes a game - how many steps can I rack up today? Good luck with your weight loss goal. You are in the right place. emoticon

Hi Dani,

Welcome. You will find loads of support here at SparksPeople and a ton of information. I'm new to using the site (signed up a few years ago, but really did not start using the site until about 1 month ago) and I'm loving it. I hope you find it as useful and I have. emoticon

Being active in a forum and reading blogs from other Sparkers is very encouraging. There are lots of very knowledgeable people who are very willing to answer your questions and help.

Have a good day.

Hey, I'm Dani, I'm 24 years old. I joined this site in hopes to find encouragement and to stop feeling like I am alone in trying to lose the weight. I'm currently 182 lbs, and my goal weight as of right now is 120. I have a part time job and I go to school full time. I currently work in the backroom, and I'm hoping that because I will be more active at work, it will help the weight come off. I've spent my whole life struggling with my weight. I was teased for a very long time, and even now, there are people who say negative things to me about my weight.

Dieting is hard for me, I'm a very picky eater, and I can't eat most fruits because they cause me to break out in hives.

Part of the reason I want to lose about 62 pounds is because lately I never like how any of my clothes fit. I also hate that I always feel like I have to wear Spanxs under my dresses and certain shirts.
I also feel like I have a very awkward body shape, my target area is my stomach, I feel like once I get my stomach down, it will be much easier to shop and I can stop wearing hoodies and tshirts all the time. I want to stay curvy, I just can't stand my stomach anymore. I hate that muffin top feeling that I have.

I think that's everything. Oh and I also have a really bad habit of being an emotional eater, and eating because I'm bored. Both which I hope to break out of.

So that me in a nutshell.
