Hi, my name is Tania. I am 31 years old and way over weigh. I am looking for help and support on here, and for what i have seen there are a lot of you willing to help me. I want to thank you all in advance and know that it comes from the bottom of mt heart.

I want to lose 100 lbs in order to be healthier and be able to take the kids out and not be a shamed of me, however i know that by reading on here i have to take it one day at a time. I am going to set a smaller goal and go from there. I still want to lose 100lbs, but i think i am going to start off by losing 25lbs first. I think that is a more realistic goal that i can meet, and see results little by little. I want to be able to take the kids to the park, movies, mall and all the places they want to go without being embarrassed, I know they say they don't mind mommy being so big and i know they love me, but i love em enough to want to be here for their entire lives. I do not want them thinking,"mommy passed away because her heart couldn't hold her weigh.

I know that i love myself and family enough to do this. God Bless you all.

Today is 8-7-09 and i have been sitting here thinking. I know that i am a changed woman and i know that I am blessed by our father in Heaven. I come to him on a daily basis and talk to him about whatever i need to talk about. People think i am crazy because when i talk to God, I do so on paper. I journal to God and i know that he see's all and knows what we need to say before we do. My biggest problem is focusing while i pray. The Bible say praise him with you voice. I sing to him and i do pray in my room, but i can't keep my mind focus while i am praying. (on one subject at a time). It's like i want to talk about everything at once and i can not control my thought process. Does anybody have any suggestion?

Today is 8-15-09 and i am sitting here looking at all that I have done on here since day 1. I remember when I started on here I was so lost. Now I am finding people, articles, goals, trackers etc! You might think i have done this b4. LOL. I think I am going to brake down and get a scale today, It has been 2 weeks since i started and I think high time for me to stop being scared. I mean I can't see the numbers moving in my head! Can I?

On 8-18-09 I finally reached 1,000 points and my new trophy. I am so excited and i am working on 1,500 more points. I think this is gonna help me to keep focused on my goal. This is very important. Well we will see how long it takes me to get to 2,500 points. God bless!

I have been getting a little better on this site. I have recommended people who love this site as well and are now losing weight as well. I am scared to jump on a scale and i know i have 2 so i can weigh in, but i fear that my numbers might have gone up rather then down.I will update the page in a few days to see where i am at in weight.

With all this stress, I have not lost weight, however i am a lot more active then i was when i started on SP. I know that the weight will come off as soon as all this Drama in my life subsides. I can not wait, because i have been having a lot of trouble breathing and walking. I am tired of my feet hurting to the point of me being in tears. I know that it is me who has to do this, because i know i definitely want to lose this weight.... Will update again in a few weeks to see how i am doing....

My Program:
talking to my doctor. Ignoring cravings for junk food and hoping to find a support team on here so that i have a team backing me when i am weak.

Since signing up, I have found some really cool people on here that i speak to on a daily basis. I know that they are all doing so well and help lift my spirits when i am getting down. God Bless You all and welcome to spark mama.
