I was recently given some advice to change my user name to something more positive my old username was HEAVYHEART73 so you are not visiting the wrong site :)

I have been at this weight loss journey (this time around) since April 2012. I had a lot of success and had hit the half way mark (53 lbs) in November. However when the holidays came around unfortunately my will power was lacking and I gained (17 lbs)weight.

I had been going through some rough patches some very negative behaviors. Beating myself up about it which sent me back to binge eating to quell my feelings. Not just about weight loss but really I seek food in sadness, boredom, anger... I am learning through the help of many SP friends and blogs that beating myself up, living in a negative place isn't working for me and isn't healthy. I spend more time worrying than living.

I am trying to find the answer to why I sabotage myself whenever I hit a certain place in my weight loss. I feel I am close to the answer but not quite there yet.

So glad to be here on Spark. I am learning new things from so many people. Not just a positive self worth but advice on certain lifestyle changes.Its a blessing to be encouraged and uplifted by so many. I hope to give the same.

    Hi Holly, I love your new user name. Definitely more positive. I'm doing awful right now. Totally my fault and I accept the blame. I need to kick my butt! lol

    I just can't explain the depression and funk I'm in. It's a tough one this time. But I'll get through it.


    Have a great day!

    The circumstances of today do not determine how far you can go-they are simply the place to start.
