I am married with a two and a half year old son. I wasn't exactly happy with my prepregnancy weight, so now I am trying to lose the lingering pregnancy pounds plus more...almost 3 years later! I have been a yo-yo dieter for as long as I can remember, and I am tired of it! I have lost weight and gained it back so many times I can't even keep track. I've tried every diet out there, and even the ones that cost me hundreds of dollars failed when I didn't follow through. I've recently realized that I am a binge eater, and I'm trying to recognize patterns and behaviors, but it's not easy. People look at me and say I "carry my weight well" or they would never guess my size or weight. That doesn't matter to me. I'm unhealthy and unhappy and I need to do something about it.

Member Since: 4/8/2009

Fitness Minutes: 287

My Goals:
I have a few goals in mind, and I'm sure as I progress, my goals will change.

I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I do not want to set a bad example for my son as he gets older.

I want to feel good about myself again.

I want to be at a healthy weight before trying to get pregnant again. I wasn't at a healthy weight when I got pregnant the first time, and it has made losing the weight even harder.

I want to lower my blood pressure.

Lastly, as shallow as it may sound, I'd really like to be looking fabulous when I stand up in my sister's wedding in May.

My Program:
I am currently making an effort to eat healthier. I pack my lunch or go to Subway. I am trying to fit in time to exercise, but it's hard, so I need to figure out how to manage my time to get to the gym.

Personal Information:
I currently live in Warren with my husband, my 2 1/2 year old son, two dogs, and a cat.

Other Information:
I have been a yo-yo dieter for a long time. Before becoming pregnant, 194 was my heaviest weight. Through Weight Watchers and daily workouts, I got down to 150, and I was happy with that. Once I got married, I started gaining weight, and at the delivery of my son, I weighed 234. I am determined to not be that weight again. I'm going to get healthy!

    I'm so very glad that you've joined the Emotional Eaters Team. The team is a place where you can vent. And where you will receive some awesome support. Of course, I am biased ... its my favorite team at SparkPeople! I hope you find exactly what you are looking for! Welcome to the team!

    Be sure to ask questions if you have them ... someone will likely have the answer. Use the tools SparkPeople provides. They are invaluable. If you feel an emotional eating attack coming on, come to the boards first. Write about it instead of pushing the feelings away with food. We're here for you!

    Eat well, journey well,
