emoticon TESAM2931 (nice to meet you! & best of luck on your weight loss goals too!), and EHAGFELD (When I first started on SP I weighed 405 pounds - lost 160 pounds by using SP and their tools ... I've just been stuck and more off track than on - I just owe it to myself to get back on track and start losing weight again.) Thanks you two for taking the time to write to me. :)

Hope you're both having a good week.

Welcome, Kim! SparkPeople is all about helping people make fresh starts!

While some might think I'm done with my weight loss journey with being on Week Nine of Maintenance (having lost 100 lbs), I still enjoy food and have learned how to channel that eating into much more nutritious avenues -- but not without great diligence to tracking, participating in challenges, reading articles, blogs, and creating or making better recipes. While I sometimes (improperly) envy my partner's ability to eat to live, even with a strong and active faith life, I tend to live to eat. As such, I will always have a weight problem because the importance food plays in my life. I need to continue tracking as this lifestyle becomes my desired lifestyle. I need to continue to learn how to respect this temple God gave me.

You came back at a great time and we're just beginning to be challenged, effective July 10, with a CELEBRATION OF LIFE through a number of cool threads designed to get us back on track. Please join us in the discussion and action of making some great self improvements! Just hop in with your goals, successes, concerns, etc.

I'm from the UK, but have been to Toronto a couple of times, as we have family who live in Burlington.
Good luck with your weight loss goals.

Hi Everyone! ... My name is Kim. Been here before - needed a new start. I am hoping this time will be the time that my spark is re-lighted. :) I live in Toronto Canada with my husband. Don't have any kids but lots of stuffed animals. :) I am addicted to horror movies, facebook, hello kitty, black&white photography, reading, listening to music (all kinds), and apparently collecting stuffed animals. :)

I am a binge-eater, late night snacker, emotional eater, addicted to food (mostly sweets & high calorie stuff). :( The worse time for me really in the day/night is around 11pm. I guess I should really make sure to be in bed by then. (haha) I really need a lot of help to control my binge-eating and emotional eating. There are times that I just want to eat everything in sight.. and, sometimes I *do*.. & then totally regret it about 5 minutes later. :( I feel like I don't get very much support from home so that is why I am here. For support. I know that SP has a *great* support system .. because I was here for 10 straight months before. And, had a lot of great friends who stood beside me through the bad times AND the good times. :) SO.. I guess I'm just looking for that same kind of support now.. while I try to get back on track.

By re-joining SP - I am hoping to re-find my spark and make new (as well as get back my old) friends! Also.. I am hoping to get back on track. I've been off track too long and I am totally unhappy with myself. So - I am hoping to change all that. :)

Good luck with all of your goals... we can DO THIS. :)

o.O Kimberley (aka. NightVixen) O.o

PS: Also this being September 11th.. I would like to say that I am thinking (and praying) for all those who lost family and friends during the terriorist attacks on September 11th, 2001. :(
