Making a change!

February 2013 will be 4 years since I joined Spark People. I love all the resources available here & have made some great friends. The past couple of years since moving from Missouri to Washington have been full of ups and downs. I have dealt with the stress & depression by eating. Unfortunately I have gained a lot of the weight I had lost back so am starting over again. Here's to 2013 being a better year!

Thank you for the well wishes...but it's a minor problem in light of all you're considering. So sweet of you to think of me...

Thanks Martha for your encouragement and understanding. I too have avoided so many things because I felt that I wasn't an acceptable weight. In fact didn't think I was an acceptable person because of my weight. That makes me extremely sad and I hope to god this is the last time I have to do this. Don't know if I would have the courage to start again. So on to another weekend, filled with healthy food, lovely walks, perhaps a movie and just enjoying life with my DH. Hope your weekend is good as well! emoticon
