41 now & I've struggled with weight issues my whole life. I think about food constantly.What to eat & how to overcome it.I'm addicted to carbs.I do know how & what to eat healthy & do well until I binge on carbs & have my emotional eating sessions.I'm the heaviest I've ever been & most days feel my addictions won.
I'm a widow & the mother of a 20 year old Autistic son. I love God,my family,the outdoors,how exercise makes me feel,cooking,helping people feel better,movies & laughing.

    Hi Autumn!

    Thank you for reading about me on my Spark Motivator feature story. You can go to my blogs on my spark page - "A Carl in All Sizes" is the pictorial to go along with the story.

    More important, there isa shamless plug for the Winter Challenge - that is what got me firmly on my path. I added you as a friend - call on me if I can help you or get you back on track or encouraged - whatever!

    Not sure if you are even still on here, but thought I would let you know I received your letter and will write soon.

    I don't know if you're still "here" but I was thinking about you and wanted to stop by and say Hi! Take care of yourself! emoticon
