You have already made the all important step to come here to Sparkpeople. And you are participating - that's what really does the trick. Right On Tricia!
I'm so glad you started this topic. Let's see 4 years ago. I don't exactly remember, but I was pretty heavy - not like I got up to, but heavier than I'd been in a long long time. I felt real self conscious being heavy. But that seemed to just make me eat more and more junk food. I was full of shame and self dislike.
My mother was clearly not doing well and I hated that. I tried to make her better but mostly things didn't work.
I gotta say, I'm in a much better place these days. I love SparkPeople too. I think it is awesome and truly is the way to go. Thank you everyone!
