Back "home" at Sparkpeople

I strayed and tried using another site for a couple of years but it lacked the intimacy that SP gives. So... Here's what I've been up to.
I'm still taking care of my dad. Since my last post here, I got engaged, got married, and my husband lives with me now. I feel bad saying this but he has made me a worse person. He spends a lot of time sitting the computer so I've become a person who does too and I'm suffering for it.
Backstory: I used to be depressed and on the pc 24/7. I broke that habit, got an active job, had a kid, and became someone who spends their remaining free time on the computer, maybe. I could go weeks without touching one. I was more active, healthy, my house stayed clean. Now, in order to spend time with the husband (who has, himself, gained 50 lbs) I'm back where I was.
But things are changing. I'm going to stop waiting on him. I've got a new hobby, I'm really trying to be more social. It's a slow process, because I still have many issues with overwhelming anxiety, but they're fewer and far between now. I've been really pushing myself out of my comfort zone. Oh, and I signed my kiddo up for soccer so playing with her gives me a reason to be active as well.
I started a couple days at my highest weight since I was pregnant (eek!) Of 202. I'm hoping to lose, total, 66 pounds. My first goal is 175.
I'm gonna do it!!
