Hello. My name is Amanda and I am 30 years old. A few years ago, I utilized Sparkpeople and lost over 70 pounds. I lost my motivation and fell back into old habits, regaining those 70 lbs. plus even more! I don't have any excuses. Yes, life is stressful, busy and unpredictable, but I shouldn't have let myself get back to that place. I often feel lonely, which is when I eat the most.

I have recently been to an OA meeting, where you have to admit that you are POWERLESS over food. I refuse to believe I am powerless over anything, especially with God watching over and guiding me. I can do this.

I am here for yet another try. As long as I'm trying, I'm not failing. My weight limits me in so many ways and it would be nice to just live life the way it was meant to be lived. I am a great person, but am so afraid to let it show sometimes because I am afraid of being criticized for my weight.

I currently work full time in marketing, am married, and have a 7 year old daughter. Whenever I put my mind to something, I always succeed, but have such a hard time when it comes to losing weight and staying on track.

Thank you for listening and I look forward to the challenge this time around. I just need to stick to it and stop getting in my own way!

    Thanks for your advice and encouragement on my blog. I posted my current weight like you advised. I knew it was the right thing to do. It felt better like I was facing up to it. emoticon

    i too have been there, on the roller coaster of losing so much weight and feeling so great, then letting it creep back on and knowing i have nobody to blame but myself - and just for fun i did it 3 times now!!
    i would love to help you reach your goal and stay there, and then you can motivate me too ;)

    Hey girlie. I've been overweight my whole life. When I lost weight in my 30s, all I had to do was eat a little less and exercise a little and it would start coming off. Now I'm lucky if I lose one pound a week. It's frustrating but I'm grateful to have all my spark friends to cheer me on. I hope I can do the same for you.
