I am 57 year old and a mom of a 16 year old son who is my miracle baby and is the light of my life and trying to be healthy and setting a good sample for my son to follow. Have been with spark for some time now but never joined any teams, or challenges till now. Want this weight off once and for all and am trying to stick with it. Been on alot of diets and did lose some weight and most of them don't work for me and my problem is that I don't know how to maintain my weight that I lost. I always gain that back and more. I did lose 106 lbs and gain some back. Need to lose 45-55 lbs to get down to my weight goal. Been on alot of different plans and it is taking it toll on me physically and emotionally and am now living a life style change and am hoping to be able to reach my goal now that I am free of dieting.

    Just want you to know I am thinking of you and hope that you are able to get a grip on whats causing the binges. You are worth more than that food for a moment makes you feel - and like you said it makes you feel tired and crappy afterward!!! ((((HUGS)))) You are a STRONG woman and you have proven that. Get some rest, be kind to yourself and share how the team can help you.
