Hello! My name is Kortney. I'm 27 and married to a wonderful guy! We both struggle with our weight. I get discouraged when we eat the same exact thing and he loses 5lbs and I gain 2! I really struggle with patience! I have to keep reminding myself that I didn't put this weight on overnight, so it won't come off overnight, but eventually my impatience wins over and I figure I'm never going to lose this weight so I give up! Well, I can't give up anymore! I've reached that point where it's imperative for me to lose this weight and keep it off! So, this is my umpteenth time trying to lose weight and everytime I lose a little then celebrate (with food) and get WAY off track. I can't be off track any longer. I'm pushing 300 now and I can't get to that number! I've got to do something, for me, for my health, for my family.

I am considered "morbidly obese" right now. I've tried other diets and programs, but I can't seem to stick with them. I'm so tired of the just plain rude comments ("Don't fall, you might break the floor" or "When's the baby due?"), so finally after a broken chair at work and constantly being reminded how fat I am, I'm finally ready to do this for myself and to stick with this through the good and bad! I love meeting new people and could really use some support like everyone else here! I currently weigh 289 pounds. My ultimate goal weight is 135 pounds. I have 154 pounds to lose, so I'll be around a while...

I will be paying myself $5 for every pound I lose. I will decide later what to do with the money I save up...

Member Since: 3/8/2010

Fitness Minutes: 35

My Goals:
*To change my life and my health for life. I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. I want to have energy and not have a medicine bag the size of a granny's!
*To like what I see in the mirror!
*To be patient with myself and not always demand perfection!
*To reward myself for the small milestones!

My Program:
Right now, I'm focusing on eating only when I'm hungry and watching my portion sizes. I was eating "normal" adult size portions when I was a kid! I'm also an emotional eater! So I've got a lot of work ahead retraining my brain and eyes! I'm also tracking everything that I eat. My workouts right now will start with short walks and swimming.

Personal Information:
My name is Kortney and I'm 27. I'm originally from Chattanooga, TN. I currently live in Clearwater, FL. I'm married to a wonderful, loving man who has 2 beautiful daughters. He is much older than I am, so you might be surprised to read that I am a grandma! I have 3 grandkids whom I adore! They all live in Mississippi (too far away). My husband and I have 3 cats who are our children, stress relievers, cuddle buddies and foot warmers. If you want to know anything, feel free to ask.

Other Information:
My husband and I love going to the movies or the beach at night to listen to the waves. There is just something so soothing about the crash of them against the beach. I LOVE scrapbooking!!! My family is very important to me! My mom and my sister are my best friends!

    Hey Kortney, thanks so much for adding me as a friend. I can relate to being impatient with the weight loss, that's why this time I had to look at it totally differently. I wanted to get healthy and I wanted to feel better, and a knew a healthier lifestyle would do that, and by eating better and exercising, losing weight would be a wonderful benefit. I take things one day at a time, looking back at the victories but not looking ahead to where I have yet to go - that road is just too long. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow isn't promised to us, all we have is today and everyone can be victorious one day at a time! God bless, Kim

    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!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)

    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! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
