***UPDATE**** I left spark and now I am back!!! Nothing has changed from the intro below except that I am 6 years older and emotionally I think I have a different out look on weight loss. I WILL LOSE IT THIS TIME!!!! No one can stop me from doing this...just me! That statement seems so simple...everyone knows that...but do they really??? Cause I just got it! No one can stop me but me!! I WILL SUCCEED!

I am a 37 year old happily remarried mother of now 6! I have struggled with my weight since i was 12 but it has been out of hand for 15 years now. 9 years ago I went through a divorce and lost 45 lbs and since then I have yo-yo'd about 20 lbs. Have never done message boards so I am new to this but would appreciate the help from anyone!! For now my page will be empty but I will update as I learn!!!! I am sticking to it this time but could use advise on exercise because I have a 10 hour a day desk job and I am limited on funds for gyms. My current goal is 80 lbs. I started Sparkpeople in Feb. 3 years ago and lost 40 lbs but went through an emotional time with family (NOT hubby he is GREAT!). I am an emotional eater therefore I gained it all back. My son graduates in May and I now I cant loose it all but it would sure be nice to drop a couple sizes by then. I am looking for friends that have the same problem and would like to give support and needs it givin. My husband is awesome but has no problem with my weight and thinks I beat myself up too much.

I can not imagine living one day with out God in my life! That being said, it has just been recently that I have given my weight loss struggle to him. I trust in him for everything else...why not this! You know what? I think its working...those haunting cravings have left for a while now...PRAISE GOD!
