My name is Buffy, and I joined spark to get assistance in developing healthy eating and living habits that will potentially lead to weight loss and a more healthier, confident me.
All my life I've struggled with obesity. Since I was a small child I've gone through ridicule from family and peers about my weight. This eventually led into poor self image, low confidence, and whatever else follows a young girl who doesn't know or love herself for who she is instead of what the world demands her to be. This I've sunk deep in for years occasionally reaching the surface for a breath of air before receding back to the depths. And don't get the idea I'm some "sad fat girl," this was more of an internal struggle.
Time to overcome...admit my flaws, accept the past and what I cannot change....everything said and done in response...grasp what I can change (through God's power and love), and not let the way I look determine my feelings and image of myself. No more excuses, moaning, groaning, blaming, or feeling sorry for myself....taking responsibilty, believing in myself that I CAN DO THIS.
Now, a college grad, newlywed, loving my job, and preparing for gradschool, I know God has a purpose for my life...and drives me even more to want to make wise choices about my health so I may please him and be there longer for my family.

I'm doing this for me, my God, my family, my friends, and for everyone who's ever said over and over..."i just can't do it."

So that's me in a longer than brief intro...feel free to add me as a friend...I'm looking give and receive encouragement, motivation, or just a bit o' love in a life today.

    ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¨Welcome to the EE team!!
    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! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
