Hi there. I need to lose 75lbs (again) and am no longer looking for quick fixes but for a way to eat healthier and stay motivated through the long process its going to take. I love to eat (or I wouldn't be here LOL), hate to exercise (help!) read, travel, go to movies, and socialize with friends. Im 49, single, have a 29 year old daughter a 10 year old grandaughter, both who live with me and my cats, in Toronto, Canada. Im turning the big 50 this year and have planned a European vacation this June with my girlfriend to visit 7 countries and the last thing I want is to be overweight and out of shape for this once in a lifetime vacation!
The one thing i've learned is that I can't do it alone, so with the help of my spark friends and my awesome sparkteam, this is the year for a healthier leaner new me!

My Goals:
My goal is to lose 75 lbs by eating healthier and moving more.

My Program:
Since every diet known to man has failed to keep this weight off I have committed myself to eating healthier. I also hate to exercise and have very painful knees so am removing the clothes from the gazelle and dusting off my total gym and pledge to use them at least 3 times a week.

Personal Information:
My name is Vera, im 47 and I live in Toronto Canada with my daughter, granddaughter and 3 cats!

Other Information:
Favorite quote: "And this too shall pass" as well as "Why put off for tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow" (hence the need for motivation!)

    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!!!

    Vera; The following is a copy of my first comment on your page (dated 12/27/06). It applies now more than ever !!

    "O.K., Vera my friend. You got me into this. It's time to put up or shut up. In other words, blow the dust off your workout clothes, knock the cobwebs off your Gazelle, and fill up your waterbottle. It's a new year (or will be in a few days), and no more excuses !!
    Remember, excuses are like a$$holes . . . everyone has one, and they all stink !!
    Your bestest buddy, and "friend to the end" (to quote that creepy little doll, "Chucky"),
    PS; I'd better hear from you soon. Remember, sparks was YOUR idea . . . . "

    Let's get rollin' kiddo ! Only 363 more days b/4 you're next b'day.
