Hi! My name is Samantha, but most people just call me Sam. I am married and have a beautiful 3 year old boy! After moving out after highschool, getting married, and having a baby my body has gone from fit and slim to...well blah lets just say unfit. That's why I'm here! I have been depressed and stressed out about my body for years now. Self-esteem? Wth is that? After seeing how upset I was my husband decided to help and support me! When I found this site I was so excited! I know I WILL MEET MY GOAL. I WILL NOT GIVE UP. I WANT THIS. And I hope to get support from people like me who struggle and want this just as bad as I do!!! WE CAN do this! ^_^
I would like to stay motivated, and get back to my high school weight by my sons 4th b-day! I would also like to look more fit and fix problem areas!
I am cutting down to portion size meals, calorie counting, not skipping breakfast or lunch anymore, making SOME healthier food choices, and getting AT LEAST 30 minutes of exercise when my little goes to bed.
My name is Sam. I'm a 25 year old from Eldon MO.
I have tons of hobbies! I like drawing, painting, coloring (yes like a kid), gaming, listening to my favorite bands (Breaking Benjamin, 3 days grace, ect), and hanging out with family and close friends.
| current weight: 139.8
Thank you for the SparkGoodie snowflake! Each one is so pretty, it's too bad we get so many at once, isn't it?!
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that you enjoy this holiday season.

Oh boy, you're not heading in a good direction. But I've been there. Stop while you're ahead. Don't go near the scale, don't let it overpower you and control you, because it is. What you're describing is how I started over restricting and over exercising. Yeah, I lost weight, but I gained a lot of it back (I'm blaming myself and a medication I started taking that causes weight gain), but you kill your metabolism, so whenever you go over, your body is going to store it as fat. I know you don't believe that. You may know it, but you're thinking it won't happen to you. It will. It isn't fun. You're suppose to live your life, not be scared by it.

Try not to focus on the numbers. I got to the point where I was constantly weighing myself - like multiple times a day, it became a major obsession and it sucks being controlled by what that dreaded number is. It isn't about that!! I know it's stressing you out (your Thanksgiving dinner blog stress!), so I know it's preventing you from enjoying your life right now (been there, done that!). Try really hard to only weigh yourself once a week. I simply had to put the scale away. I can't even look at one now, but it's better than going back to where I was.

Thanks for the support! If a day was eating the right amount, it would be a good day. Eating too little or too much is a bad day, but I view eating too little as a good day as well, so that's my problem. I'm trying to change it!
