Have lost 100 pounds and frightened of gaining it back, when I know I need to lose 50 more

Hi everyone! I am new to the Spark People and I am very excited to meeting new friends that are dealing with similiar problems as mine " Namely -WEIGHT!" I have lost over 100 lbs. and have managed to keep it off for nearly 5 years, but I need to loose about 30 lbs more and I could use some support. I was a circuit trainer and a weight management instructor for CURVES in my local town for nearly 5 years, but due to the falling ecconomy, they had to close their doors. I was devastated....I knew how important exercise had become to me, so I joined the YMCA and 2 weeks later I was asked to become an instructor there. I truly love helping others and find it very rewarding helping them reach their goals, but I feel that I can't asked them for support, when in fact, that is what I am to do for them as part of my job discription. If I did, I feel it would be a sign of weakness on my part, and they wouldn't see me in the same light. Sooooo that is why I am reaching out to all of you. Please help me when you can, and I will be more than help any of you in any way I can in return. I hope to make new friends in here and may we all reach out to each other in our times of weakness. Thank you very much for listening to my problem.

    Welcome to Spark, and best wishes on your journey. SP has a lot of great features and I suggest you take it slow and not become overwhelmed. Join some groups for motivation and support! DONE is my fav ;) but maybe I'm biased. lol.

    The stairway to success has thousands of steps. Take them one at a time and with the positive assurance that you will reach the top!

    I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)
    Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
