I am a 27 year old, originally from Ghana, looking to finally lose weight in a healthy and sustainable way.

I am determined to live a healthy life, and have finally admitted to myself that my key issues are emotional eating, consistency, and self-sabotage. I have a long way to go, but I am learning to really love myself for me, at any size, along the way.

I am a 27 year old, originally from Ghana, looking to finally lose weight in a healthy and sustainable way.

I am determined to live a healthy life, and have finally admitted to myself that my key issues are emotional eating, consistency, and self-sabotage. I have a long way to go, but I am learning to really love myself for me, at any size, along the way.

My general goals are:

Learn to love my body at any size

View food as nourishment and fuel for my body, rather than as a proxy for comfort, entertainment and whatever else I use it for

Learn to tune out negative comments of detractors. The journey is for me, and not for others to define.

Find self-esteem from within/develop mental as well as physical strength

Finally, I got married on July 13, 2013! This new step definitely makes me want to live a healthy life for myself, my husband and our future family

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my "Journey" blog. You asked about the 5% challenges.

As it happens, the Winter one has just wrapped up and sign ups for the Spring one will be open in another week or so.

Here's a link (you'll have to copy and paste it in your browser) to a blog I wrote a year ago when the Winter 2013 one (my first) had just finished. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_j
ournal_individual.asp?blog_id=5331685

If you are interested in joining up for the 8 week Spring one, spark mail me in about a week and I can send you the link to the team to join. I've done 5 in a row and am in again for Spring 2014. Hope to see you there!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for your comments. It's amazing the unhealthy things we sometimes subject ourselves to in order to get healthier, isn't it?
