Time to SPARK it up!!!

Sunday, October 16, 2011

I have been a member of SparkPeople forever but I haven't really used the tools. So I am back and committed to using Spark to help me keep honest with my program. I love all the wonderful features so now to just use them. I am from Lubbock, TX. I am 45 years old and mom to 3 grown boys, Connery 24, Robert 23 & Joshua 21. I am also wife to my hubby Robert for almost 14 years now. He is the love of my life and is very supportive. I am blessed as he loves me just as I am! My highest weight was a little over 340 pounds... I am now somewhere around 260 pounds and would love to reach a goal weight of under 200 pounds. I am not striving to be "Thin" I just want to be healthy. I belong to TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) and I also attend OA (Overeaters Anonymous) meetings. Both are life changing for me!! I have been overweight my entire life. (except for 6 months when I was 22) This has been a life long battle for me... but it is one that I am determined to win and I promise you I will NEVER GIVE UP! Welcome to my Journey!!

    hi teresa, i'm with you, i have been a member of sp forever it seems. i have used the tools and i have not used the tools, i find using them is a big help and i'll be doing good, but then i'll get busy or having family emergencies and don't take the time to use the tools.
    i am also a member of tops, and i would be totally lost if i didn't have to be accountable for a weigh in every week. does oa help? i thought about joining that too but haven't yet. i wasn't overweight til i moved out of my parent's house and got married and i was able to buy junk food which we didn't have much of when i was younger, being the oldest of 14 kids, my parents didn't have the extra money to buy alot of junk food or eating out very often.
    but i too would like to tag along on your journey, if you don't mind.
