I will be the first to admit it...I not only have a weight problem, but I have an obsession with food and my weight. You hear some say...when I'm depressed, I stop eating or when I'm happy I eat right. Well although my moods do effect my eating, I tend to overeat or eat junk when I'm depressed AND when I'm happy. When I'm upset I stuff myself with high sugar high fat foods with an "I just don't care anymore" attitude...and when I'm happy I overeat because I'm comfortable....which of course then leads me to feel depressed due to the weight. So here I am again...for the upteenth time. But like they say, "you are never a failure until you stop trying."

Member Since: 6/4/2006

Fitness Minutes: 3,015

My Goals:
I want to be able to walk the stairs without getting winded. I want to feel good when getting dressed. I want to be able to wear dresses with curves again. I want to be smaller on my 50th birthday then I was on my 40th. I want to change my lifestyle so that food doesn't control me

My Program:
Day by day. I have set myself up so many times by logging on with the highest of energy and commitment only to be defeated in a few days because I made too many unrealistic goals. So this time I'm trying something different..only dealing one day at a time and learning to forgive myself.

    I am also of French decent, and although I was the past president of the Franco-American Day Committee in Lowell the past two years, je ne parle pas francais, aussi. THAT is about the extent of my French & I don't even remember if I wrote THAT correctly. emoticon

    I only took French in high school and although my parents spoke fluent French, when I was young, I REFUSED to learn. Now, I am always trying to remember the little bit I did know & learn more.

    I think you chose a WONDERFUL name, Madame Alouette! emoticon
    I hope to meet you at the SP Rally on Saturday in Sturbridge.

    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. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! emoticon
