    Sorry for the loss of your mother. I lost mine in Jan 09 after she battled cancer for 8 years. It was awful to lose her and I turned to food big time for about 3 months. I then just as I was starting to cope I lost a beloved brother in early Dec 09. That really sent me over the edge. But like you, I am realizing I need to be healthy for my family. I have found many coping mechanisms here on Sparkpeople and I recently started attending Overeaters Anonymous which is also very helpful. Good Journey!

    Thanks for the motivation!! The biggest thing for me is learning that food is meant to fuel and nourish us...not to make me feel better about a stressful day! lol emoticon

    Hi and welcome! You're right, this site is amazing and you've made a great decision in choosing to utilize it to it's fullest. I lost 40 lbs with SP a few years back, but after some personal struggles I stopped coming here and gained it almost all back. Boo. I'm back now and really excited to get back on track. I have about 25 lbs to lose for health reasons and an additional 15lbs for vanity emoticon

    I know I can do it and I know you can too! I just made a blog post that you may find helpful about some of the things I learned during my first go-around here. If you need help, support or whatever just I'm more than willing.
