Hey SOWGH! What a great group to stumble onto!!! However, I don't know if I actually belong here right now . . . . I just 'retired' (actually, I prefer 'retreaded') about 6 months ago. But I'm still in recovery from the STRESS mode that I've lived in for so many years. I feel like I'm still suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and my health is certainly still suffering. That's why I'm here at SparkPeople and that's why I thought I might fit right in here in this group.

Anyway, I am still a newly wed (3 1/2 years!) living in So Oregon where we have 5 forested acres in a quiet little valley surrounded by beautiful mountains. I'm turning 60 in a few weeks and my goal is to regain my health and give myself a make-over.

I'm looking forward to finding my spot here at SparkPeople . . . just maybe this is it.
What'dya think?

Hi. My name is Jalene. I became a member Monday September 24, 2012. I unfortunately am a stress-er. lol. I am married and have a 4 yr old. The biggest stress in my life right now is making sure I'm giving my son all the attention and learning he needs to live a normal life. He was diagnosed with Asperger's at age 2.5 yrs of age. (It's a High Functioning Autism) At home he's great, At school on the other hand he's a biter, screamer, spitter, headbutter, and he tells the teachers off. He's been in head start for 4 wks and only good for 5 days. we didn't teach him to behave like that so I'm trying to get him back on track. I figured the exercise is good for me to get rid of some stress and it's good for him because it's our bonding time and teaches him other ways to get rid of his anger. emoticon for "listening" to my stress. I'm glad there is a group for stress. Good Luck to everyone and I know together we can achieve our goals.

Hello! I've been using SP for about three weeks now, but just found this group today. I am working at stressing out less, but I'm also in the middle of a divorce, so that's not helping much, to say the least!

Exercise *is* helping, though, so that's been a great motivator to keep going. I look forward to talking with you all!

Hi,
My name is Amanda, and I'm new to SparkPeople. I'm an active duty U.S. Air Force member. I'm currently deployed to the Middle East. I'm hoping to lose 20lbs before I leave here.

Hi Everyone. Saw this team and thought I should try it out. I seem to always be stressed. I have a job that requires way too many hours and too many responsibilities. But I do love it (most days). I am single and 40, but in the process of adoption. I'm looking to adopt a school age child. I'm involved with my church as well. I look forward to meeting other team members.

I'm so happy to have found this group. STRESS is my life right now. I am 51 y/o and 50-60 lbs overweight. I am a RN on a super busy orthopedic floor in a small hospital. Three years ago I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and I have been hanging on by a thread since then. My hospital is undergoing major changes and people are being fired and escorted out of the building on a daily basis. We all live in fear, worry if we could be next. They are demeaning and abusive to us. Never following state law, but yes, they do get away with it. We are forced to clock out on time but stay late and finish all work. We work 12 hour shifts and our patients are all very dependent on us for all of their needs. Since I have been suffering from fibro the work of lifting patients and being on my feet for 12-14 hrs a day has taken it's toll. Usually the day after working I am in bed for at least 1/2 the day before I can get my painful body moving. I know that I need to lose weight in order to survive. I believe that losing weight would improve at least some of the pain. I am very determined to do this but it has brought on even more stress. In the mean time I am trying to sell my ranch so that I can move into town to a much smaller house that hopefully I can manage and afford should I lose my job. Having the house on the market and keeping it showroom ready at all times has added a bunch more stress but I just don't know what my other options would be. Sorry to dump so much on you guys all at once. I'm not usually much of a whinner and tend to suffer in silence, obviously not today though :P I hope to gain a level of support from a group that understands how much stress affects our ability to make good choices and can possible give me some insight into ways to deal with all of this besides stuffing my face full of comfort. Thanks for listening.

Forget past mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you're going to do now and DO IT! - William Durant

A little late on my introduction. I found this group a couple weeks ago, but have been super crazy busy :o)

So here goes:

Hello, I am a wife to a wonderful and supportive husband. I am a mother of two beautiful children, ages 4 and 2. I work full-time and go to school full-time. My husband also works full-time and goes to school.

In 2007 I weighed my heaviest at 195 lbs. I decided this was no longer acceptable or healthy and I started a journey to lose 60lbs.

Preg1 5/07: 174......9months pregnant 2/08 220ish
Preg2 5/09: 149......9months pregnant 2/10 190ish
2nd Child 6 mo old 8/10: 149

January 2011 I weighed 166 lbs and decided it was now time to lose the last 31 lbs of the 60 lbs I started to lose back at the beginning of 2007. I found MyFitnessPal at the end of January and restarted my journey to a healthier me.

I reached my goal on Thanksgiving Day 2011. In 2011 I lost a total of 33 lbs, which was 3 lbs past my goal!! But unfortunately as 2012 started I was not able to maintain my loss. Do to the crazy stress I have in my life right now, I let my emotional/stress eating get the better of me and I gained back almost 20 lbs.

SW on SparkPeople: 148 lbs (4/23/12)
SparkPeople GW: 130 lbs by July 13th 2012

On 4/23/12, I found SparkPeople. I was getting board with MFP and was just feed up. Began to look to see what other options I could find for logging my calories in and calories out. I love the added resources SparkPeople provides.

I know I can lose the weight, I have done it once already. I WILL reach my goal again and I WILL stay there!
