41 now & I've struggled with weight issues my whole life. I think about food constantly.What to eat & how to overcome it.I'm addicted to carbs.I do know how & what to eat healthy & do well until I binge on carbs & have my emotional eating sessions.I'm the heaviest I've ever been & most days feel my addictions won.
I'm a widow & the mother of a 20 year old Autistic son. I love God,my family,the outdoors,how exercise makes me feel,cooking,helping people feel better,movies & laughing.

    Hi Autumn!

    Thank you for reading about me on my Spark Motivator feature story. You can go to my blogs on my spark page - "A Carl in All Sizes" is the pictorial to go along with the story.

    More important, there isa shamless plug for the Winter Challenge - that is what got me firmly on my path. I added you as a friend - call on me if I can help you or get you back on track or encouraged - whatever!

    Not sure if you are even still on here, but thought I would let you know I received your letter and will write soon.

    You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

    Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!

    Again, Congratulations Beautiful! Hugs!
