January 8, 2015
Somewhere along the way I forgot how to take care of myself. The past couple of years have been very stressful and I haven't handled things well at all. I am an emotional eater and medicate with food. I am at my heaviest weight now thanks to my constant binging. I barely recognize the woman I see in the mirror. My only resolution for 2015 is to make myself a priority and take care of me for a change.

February 18, 2014
I have read through my past entries on this page and I have to say that I am a little disappointed that I find myself in this cycle over and over. Thank goodness for I may lose and gain the same 25 pounds each year but I am always motivated by this website and some new friends along the way. I am not a failure......I reach my goal and gradually gain it back but I learn a little bit each time. I currently have 18 pounds that I want to lose by May 1, 2014. Wish me luck!

Here we go again. Start again February 2013. I have gained 30 pounds in the last year by eating my feelings....again!

Update: November 15, 2012
I am still eating everything in sight and medicating with food. I've started exercising again this week and trying to cut back on snacking. I know I can do it, after all, I've done it so many many times.

Update: April 30, 2012. I reached my goal weight on December 26. In early February, my husband got laid off from his job along with a few more stressful things. I managed to slip back into my old habit of medicating with food. I have gained back 15 pounds. Today I am starting over once again.

December 1, 2011 - I am happy to report that I am still plugging along, losing an average of one pound a week. Its very slow but I have lost 18 pounds. i continue to exercise 4 - 5 times a week which helps me feel better overall. My goal for December is to not gain any weight during the holiday season.

October 12, 2011 - Reached an all time high of 159 pounds on Sept 6. Decided I had enough of feeling fat and being unhappy. I have managed to keep my head in the game for about five weeks and I have lost 10 pounds. Slow and steady. I have started exercising again and that is helping me in so many ways. I hope to get back to where I was in October of 2006 but I am trying not to put too much pressure on myself.

April 11, 2011 Not much changed from April 2009 to April 2011. I have fought the battle for two years. Got to my highest weight in March after completely losing my mind over the holidays and my oldest daughter moving out. I ate from morning to night, sweets and chips at all hours. I have my head in the game after three weeks of changing my eating habits. Hope to get back to myself by July.

Update: April 24, 2009
I have gained back the 26 pounds lost in 2006 and I am miserable. I am determined to get my head back in this game and put myself first. I have been logging into Sparkpeople for two weeks tracking my calories and getting support. I have managed to add exercise back in my life and look forward to putting that info into Sparkpeople and watching the points add up. Its all about small victories and putting myself first every once in a while.

UPDATE: 5-23-08: I have now gained back 23 pounds. I am almost back to the exact point I started. I began a full-time job and have let exercise fall to the wayside. I have been stress-eating at night. I know what to do but i just can't seem to get back on track. I'm not giving up, I'm just frustrated.

45 year old mother of three. I feel much younger than that. I have been working hard to shed the extra 25 pounds I had gained during the last 3 years. I am very close to my goal thanks to SparkPeople. I worry about maintaining my weight and not falling into old habits.

The next four months will be a test with the holidays coming up. I am from the South and we celebrate everything with food.

UPDATE: Well, my worst fears have come true. I got off track during the holidays which I expected. I am terribly dissappointed that I didnt' get back on track in January and now it is February and I have gained back eight pounds. I do not have a handle on the emotional eating and I need to stop celebrating everything with food. It's back to the drawing board for me.

UPDATE 5-16-07: I am still struggling to lose the weight I have gained back. I have now gained 13 pounds. I haven't given up, but I am very discouraged. I cannot seem to get a handle on my emotional eating. I am at a stressful time in my life and I medicate with food. I am still logging on to Spark and exercising off and on. I hope to get back into my normal eating and exercise program soon. I am looking for a Spark Buddy to talk one on one.

My Goals:
My short term goal is to lose 15 pounds by my birthday in mid February. I would like to lose 15 more by June 1.

Past Goal (but still relevant): I want to get back that awesome feeling you get when you have on that sexy little black dress and you actually FEEL like you are sexy and beautiful. I want to feel like a vibrant and pretty woman and not just someone''s mother.

My Program:
I am counting calories and taking a close look at what I am eating. No junk food or mindless eating in front of the TV. No sweets and very limited white stuff. I do treat myself to pizza with my family every other week. Cardio exercise 5 days a week, strength work with weights 2-3 days each week.

Personal Information:
I am from Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
