Hello all. I am beginning...AGAIN. I want to feel hopeful...AGAIN. I am at a place in my life where weight loss is no longer just cosmetic, but is mandatory if I want to be able to one day run and play with my future grandchildren, and enjoy however many "golden years" God gifts my dear husband and me.
It is my hope that this time will be different, that having a community of support surrounding me will help me find and nurture the perseverance that has always eluded me in the past.

Member Since: 5/23/2007

My Goals:
I want to be able to play in the water again, to tie a little one's shoe without heaving and ho-ing, to ride a bike, walk with my husband, stop snoring, move with ease- these are SOME of my physical goals. Mentally and emotionally, I want to experience normal eating. At this point in time, I cannot conceive of getting through one day without massive amounts of food, sugar in particular. I want to reach a point where food is incidental in my life, not central. I hope to make significant connections at Spark, to someday be in one of those "Before/After" pictures/stories, to give hope to all those people who feel the way I do right now...uncertain, desperate, sometimes hopeless. That is my dream. I've started the path many, many times. I have never completed it. I hope to, this time.

My Program:
I am not using one yet- I am mulling over The Beck Diet Solution, as well as journaling. I am hoping to connect with like-minded folks and hear what worked for them, at the same time realizing it needs to be MY program, not someone else's. Still, I'd love the company along the way, as well as the insights some of you MUST have gained after successfully losing weight.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
"I Love Lucy" has been one of the shared joys I've had with my daughter, when she was alot younger. Always appropriate, always funny, we still watch it together occasionally, even if she's past the age where she wants to watch much with her mom :) She is a teen-ager who delights us- MOST of the time!
My firstborn, a son, is a sparkling sportswriter who lives too far away for THIS mama :( but we talk often, and text Frasier and Seinfeld quotes back and forth. This has literally happened when I've been in my classroom with my Kindergarteners- (I am an Instructional Assistant). He keeps me laughing.
I have been married for 31 years this December, to my best friend and companion. I thank God for "my people", and the life He's given me to share. But it's a life that will be shortened unless I can care enough about myself, to take CARE of myself. I thank my Spark friends in advance, for your help and encouragement.

    Just stopping by to say hi and see how everything is going for you. The last two weeks have been good for me as far as nutrition and exercise. Didn't lose anything last week, but lost two this week. I guess my body is just liking the one pound a week loss and I am not going to insist on more....Have a good week and keep sparking that's what keeps us connected. emoticon

    Just got back from 5 wonderful days with my family. I didn't do too bad eating, but I did not record my food, and I'm sure the drinking is what it was that may have put some pounds back on... Will weigh in tomorrow morning. Any way, nice to have you as a SP friend. Hopefully we can encourage one another and chat about this change for the better in our lives! Keep up the good work - don't worry about learning all this posting and blogs, and points and everything all at once, it will come to you in time!
