It's time to get down to business! I can't wait to join in on life instead of watching it!

And guess what I finally am! I have a new bike that I love riding and I enjoy walking, I love sitting at my computer because I can fit in the chair, I don't need an extender on my car seat belt, I love shopping at the salvation army for new clothes and saving money to do all the fun things I want. I am looking forward to gatherings and meeting people... I always shyed away because of my size. I am really feeling comfortable in my own skin, and best of all I am HAPPY!

i look at old pictures and I can't believe its really me... the way I look now and that it was really me then. All I can say is WOW! My life is so different and has so much meaning. I'm not sitting on the side line. I am making my life the way I want it

Personal Information:
My name is Ellaree, I have been over weight for over 20 years. I had the RNY surgery to help me as a tool in my weight loss journey. I still struggle with making the right choices. I did very well but it's hard. I can slowly see the weight going up and I want to stop it in its place now!

Other Information:
I love playing games, I love the wii, I like to paint,crotchet, some sewing, making stuff from junk and giving it a new life, resale shops, but most of all I love being with my family. Now I love dancing type exercises! I joined a gym recently so I have no excuses about the weather or the time it open 24/7

    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! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
