I Know I Can Do This!

My name is Alison and I am ready to take control of my weight and my health for good! I'm very excited and also pretty nervous about jumping into SparkPeople with both feet, but I know it's the right time.

I was a pretty average size through my teens and early twenties. Not in super great shape, but not really overweight. I ran cross-country in high school and loved to go camping. Then I went through some pretty tough times in my late twenties and started gaining weight. This ...
My name is Alison and I am ready to take control of my weight and my health for good! I'm very excited and also pretty nervous about jumping into SparkPeople with both feet, but I know it's the right time.

I was a pretty average size through my teens and early twenties. Not in super great shape, but not really overweight. I ran cross-country in high school and loved to go camping. Then I went through some pretty tough times in my late twenties and started gaining weight. This trend has continued into my thirties and I haven't been able to get ahold of it no matter what I try.

Last October, I lost my mom to Pancreatic Cancer. Given my track record with putting on weight as my go-to behavior when life gets tough, I'm pretty scared that If I don't stop it now, I will be fat the rest of my life! I just turned 36 and I weigh the most I ever have in my entire life. I am ready for things to change!

Hi there!! Welcome to SparkPeople!!

Try not to get overwhelmed by this site. You will get the hang of it in no time. I found the easiest way to learn what's here is to try and collect SparkPoints. You will see all the different things that earn points.

If you need any help or support along the way, please let me know! You can add me as a friend, stop by my SparkPage or send me a message.

Good luck!!! emoticon
