Hi and salaam,

I am Kareema; I overweight and have been for many years. I have been consumed with losing weight for the past 15 years. I have five wonderful kids and have been married for over 18 years. We have our ups and downs and for most part I use food to deal with any emotional stuff I may not want to deal with. I don't always express my true feelings so food comes in handy when I wish I could/should have said something and did not. I wouldn't say I am passive but in many instances I have allowed others to dictate who I should be and what I should be. I lost myself in my marriage. When I met my husband I was running almost everyday and wearing a size 10-12. I now wear size 18 and I hate it. I know it's time for a change. I knew way back then too but wasn't willing to do what is necessary to see change. I go back in forth- lose a pound or two gain four. I am sure most of you know what I mean. In the end; weight gain, depression and a feeling of defeat. This is the only thing that I haven't managed to succeed at. I am accomplished my educational goals while nurturing my babies but for some reason, I can't seem to get it right when it comes to me. So, I am here; like many of you. Looking for that one thing or two which will finally get me to my goal weight. I am almost there but not quite. I want to see us all succeed at this and I am here to support you all with whatever I have learned and know from experience and I can certainly use your support, motivation and advice. So, let the change begin:)

Warm Regards,
Kareema Barbara

    Hello Kareema and Welcome to Spark... I think everyone deals with sabatogging moments differently but I will tell you it doesn't help to beat yourself up over it. We all have bad meals or bad days and personally for me it helps to just accept whatever choice I've made, learn from it... and get back into focus.. You can do this and be successful and there are lots of people here that will support you if you'd like. I wish you the very best and Plz feel free to msg me anytime you'd like... Sheryl
