Hello and !! My name is Angela and I have been on this site since June. Congratulations on taking your first steps to a brand new you and a new weight loss experience where you are supported by en entire community of like-minded people. This website is dedicated to helping people who want a healthier lifestyle including issues with eating healthy and exercising, as well as support forums where we talk about specific issues.
With 6 kids, you would think you would be thin as a rail, wouldn't you? My mother says that her mother used to eat when she got stressed chasing her kids around... maybe that is a trigger for you. But if you are feeling the tiniest bit of depression about the weight loss, there is a team on here called Fighting Depression With Movement. I can tell you that these fun-loving women have NEVER come across as depressed, but we all are... only we keep each other bouyed up every day. And they are a super group of ladies!
So welcome and enjoy! If you have questions, you can always reach out and send me a SparkMail, or stop by my SparkPage at the link below. We can do this together, with encouragement and support from others, and SparkPeople has really great resources for any kind of workout or condition!
