My First Introduction On SparkPeople
Friday, February 22, 2008
I created my SparkPage in September (or maybe it was August, I forget), and some things have changed. I am going to update my SparkPage text, but I wanted to save for posterity (or for looking back on to think, "Wow, just look how far I've come!") the original text. I decided to put it in a Blog Entry. Here it is:
"I'm a single mom of two boys, ages 16 and 8.
I recently got out of a very difficult situation at work and had been eating too much to deal with my stress. This is a pattern with me. I gained weight just before my husband announced he wanted to leave me and kept it on for a couple years afterwards until I (mostly) got over the separation and divorce. I lost a little weight last year, but the stress from my job and having a teenage son led me back to emotional eating. Recently, I've noticed that I've put on a few pounds again.
I'm hoping this will jumpstart my weight loss efforts."
