I'm a married mom of 5 that has struggled with obesity and various eating disorders my entire life. Something always seems to get in the way of doing it right and making it last. There has always been a reason to eat my way through life. As I have gotten older, my list of excuses has grown, along with the number of aches and pains. It's time to let go of the excuses and hopefully the aches and pains will lighten up too. My family is everything to me, but good friends help too. :) I disappeared again. I also got my type 2 diabetes back and weigh the most I have in forever. I need help getting back on track. I feel so lost.

Member Since: 2/26/2009

Fitness Minutes: 3,112

My Goals:
Right now my main goal is to get a running streak of pounds heading out the door. I am not having anymore children so I no longer see any reason why I can't try to be the woman I once was. I'm not as young as I was, but I don't have to just accept being overweight with being older.

My Program:
Right now I am focusing on watching what is going into my mouth. I am trying not to be too restrictive, but being very aware of how many calories things have and whether or not they are really worth it. Also trying to figure out what exercise is going to work best for me.

Personal Information:
My name is Carla. I am from San Jose, CA. Anyone can drop me an e-mail to say hi at Feel free to add me on Facebook from that e-mail too!

    How has the new job worked out for you? We remodeled two floors of the house. Too expensive to buy another house so we made changes here. I am reorganizing my craft room today. Once done I will work on an afghan for my daughter.

    I thought about joining WW too but didn't want to spend the money. It gets expensive with weekly meetings and buying the calculator, etc. The closest meeting is 45 minutes from me. Excuses - see all my excuses for not doing it! I can at least do Spark at home and still connect with people who have the same goals. I do think weighing in at a meeting would be more motivational. At least for me. Maybe I should knock on the neighbor's door and ask them to let me weigh in weekly at their house! LOL
