I have been on this journey before. I lost a little over 60 pounds more than a year ago. I was so excited! So many people noticed, and it felt awesome. Then things changed. I cannot pinpoint exactly what it was, but I knew something was different. My moods were hard to control..happy one minute, crying the next. So, I was prescribed what I like to call my "happy pills". And those little things have made my moods better, but I also gained back all the weight I had previously lost, plus a few more pounds.

I am looking forward to starting a new job right after the first of 2010. I am hoping that it will help me refocus, and get me back on my journey.

Personal Information:
Updated: 12/31/2009.

My name is Samantha, and I am a working mother of two little boys. I have worked in an elementary school since October 2006, and as much as I absolutely love working with children, I have found a job that I believe will help me and my family become more secure. Although I will miss many of the children I have worked with the past 3 years, I believe this new job will bring greater things for me and my family.

Other Information:
I love 'CSI: Miami' and both 'NCIS' and 'NCIS: Los Angeles'. If there is ever a marathon of 'Criminal Minds' on, I am probably glued to the TV.

    I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)
    Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
    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! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*

    Hi Samantha,
    Sounds great! We all need someone to be accountable to. I would be Happy to be your friend. Weight loss has been an up hill battle for me also. I need to loss 60 pounds. People say, where is your willpower or self control. I guess it did not always work for me. Sometimes you need a friend you can talk to. I think stress is my biggest enemy. I have been going to the gym. I have been telling myself you can do it. I keep Discipline in my mind, it is helping. I hope I can help. It is a battle but we can win. Judy
