I've been seriously ill for the past year but have finally made it into remission and need to take off all of those "prednisone pounds"!! I'm on my way. Took off 30 pounds and so I'm half way there. Looking forward to being a healthy weight again.

Some words to live by:

"Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny."


He dreams impractical dreams. He tries the patience of Job. But with his childlike trust and his zest for living, who am I to say that the drummer he marches to will not take him to the stars? --Erma Bombeck wrote this about one of her sons and she may as well have written it about mine. It's so true.

My Goals:

My Program:
I am adhering to the recommendations of SparkPeople limiting my intake of nutrients to balance them out to the recommended specifications of the site. It appears to follow the Mediteranean Diet that so many doctors recommend. It appears to be working because I am finally losing weight. I'm also using more fruits and vegies for carbs instead of starches, but I have not stopped eating those, just less frequently and in smaller portions.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
I love to read mysteries, especially Jonathan Ellerman and James Patterson novels, and I love to cook, but hate to clean up afterwards! :0) Mostly, I love cooking and baking and playing backgammon with my 17 year old son. We've been baking for holidays since he was 7 years old. He's the best person I know and I hope I am creating memories that will last him a lifetime.

    Welcome to the EE team!!

    I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!!

    Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post.

    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success!

    ~~best of luck to you on all of your goals!!!
