I joined Sparkpeople in July 2010. It's by far the best online resource I have found. I even have the app on my phone to keep me accountable during the day. The food and fitness trackers have been a blessing, but even moreso is the Sparkpeople community. Blessed to have met some inspiring people.

I have been fighting with weight and an eating disorder for most of my life, but more than usual in the last seven years. I have joined OA this year in hopes that I can have the support of others like myself and learn to overcome my issues surrounding food and my addiction to binge eating. It has been very hard getting real with myself, but it was very necessary.

If I could give anyone advice that is having similar struggles, it is to truly love yourself, accept yourself, know that you are ENOUGH and to start to learn how to take care of you above all else. I've noticed that people that hold onto weight are those that don't take the time to truly nurture themselves outside of numbing their pain with food or by coping with food. Get out there and be active, write, and be around like-minded individuals who understand you.

That's why Spark is so great. We all cheer each other on. Life is hard enough, we all need more support. LET's do this together!

My goal is to lose 85 lbs this year (2013).

    I am doing well and LOVING Hawaii. :) Great to hear from you! Do you run laps at the track? I have a love/hate relationship with running! LOL!

    Thanks for the visit! emoticon

    You can do it! emoticon

    I found that a variety of workouts and sometimes even skipping a day can help break a plateau. I have also heard that a high calorie day can help change things up enough too. But persistence is key... don't give up!

    We are all here for similar reasons! Keep it moving! And don't beat yourself up if you fall of the horse from time to time! emoticon

    Thank you so much for the blog love! I was pretty afraid to post it out of fear of folks being judgy. I am glad you enjoyed it. Keep Sparking!

    By the way, you are so freakin cute!

    Hey Lady,
    Thanks so much for the goodie; it was so thoughtful of you. Things are going well for me. I cooked on Sunday for my family which left me with Monday and Tuesday to do whatever I wanted. It was wonderful. I'm going back to work tomorrow just so that I can break the laziness that I have grown used to in the last few days. LOL! I'm glad your dinner turned out well and your MIL was pleased. You know that you can join the group anytime you like. We are there for you. We are planning our beginning of the year brunch on the first Sunday in January. Hope to see you there. I will post it soon. I'm so glad that you're a part of our team; I hope that we see more of you next year. Keep the faith emoticon
