I love myself.

I will never Give up!

I am worthy.

I am an athlete!

I will achieve my goals!

One day at a time!

My plan: tracking my food, drinking my water, finding other things to do besides eat when I'm bored, tired, crabby, happy, sad or any other time I want to stuff sweets into my system. Working out 3-5 times a week. Never give up on myself.

I was thin or at least average until I turned about 20 years old. I changed jobs and gained about 15 pounds by the time I got married. My husband and I moved across the state right after I got married and I probably gained about 20 lbs in the first 2 months. I gained slowly each year to maintain at 205-235 for the last 15 years. I have lost 30-40 lbs 3 times in that time frame from different diets like Weight Watchers, Prism, Ediets etc.

What I really want is to be happy with my body, mind, and soul! I'm reading more books on health. I took a class on Emotional Eating and it has helped.

I'm taking baby steps and I know I will reach my goals!

I'm so done being the fat friend.
I'm so done being worried if this outfit makes me look fat!
I'm so done being tired.
I'm so done not exercising.
I'm so done not taking care of myself!
I'm so done being the fat girl~

    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!!

    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. That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success!

    ~~best of luck to you on all of your goals!!!
