I see myself as a tall, plain, quiet and thoughtful person that has a few things to work on. Always able to work on something -- I am my worst critic. I can improve my mile, I can improve my eating habits (completely revamp them), I can improve my whole outlook on life!

A laugh is simply a smile out loud...

I feel down because I can't seem to get into the mindset this time to loose my weight, I keep see-sawing back and forth a few pounds. I want to loose weight so I feel better and my legs quit hurting from all the extra pounds I carry. I found this site in the First Magazine today and decided to check it out. W.W.'s doesn't seem to be helping me this time, so I thought I'd try something else. I really feel I can loose my weight, I just need to get on the right program. And have support.

Good Morning all,
I'm two days new to Spark People. I completely understand where you are coming from. It's a pattern I fall into alot. Everyone else before me. I'm thinking now that is part of the emotional eating issues I have. Over the last year I've really began to notice how I seem to put myself last. So, one week I told myself that no matter what I was going to exercise and the family might need to take care of themselves. (I also have three dogs and raise puppies) What was wonderful is that my family started taking care of me as I was taking care of myself. I simply said, I'm going for a walk or to curves. The just took care of things at home. Curves has been the first program I've stuck with. Anyway, I think that's what Spark People is here for, we support each other on our weight lose journey. That's why I needed them! I know that puppy could use a walk, how about the kids and yourself? So, get moving girl, sometime today. Just for today! I'm heading to Curves, I hope to talk again, You can do this!! We are all behind you! Remember, there are day's we all need help. You are not alone

I see myself as someone that is not able to motivate herself. I feel so busy with the kids and puppy that I have no time to log on to SparkPeople. I know I need to treat myself better, but I am just not doing it enough.

I am starting to see myself in a better light than when I first started with Sparks, just over three weeks ago.

I am eating better and exercising more. Getting in touch with those feelings that make me want to reach for the "bad" food.

I have always been very active all through my years growing up, so I really never had a problem gaining weight until I got married and had a daughter that was disabled. And I was even able to stay fairly active until she reached an age - and I reached an age where it became unable to move her easily. I carried her until she was about 12yrs.old., but now that she is over a 100 pounds and 21yrs.old that is just impossible to do! Any ideas?

Please LORD take me where I need to go show me the way! I hurt so bad and I love my daughter so much! Guide me I could never do this before without YOU,MY BELOVED SAVIOR, and i can't continue to do it without YOUR GUIDIANCE!
AMEN!

exposed, weak, stupid

it feel's like I have a big sign on.

that's not how I feel about my whole self because I am a lot more than my extra weight.

I read this over a day ago and it kept coming to mind because of the controversy brought up of thinking positive (or not beating yourself up) opposed to being honest and I feel I can do both. I'm all for positive thinking and 100% believe never should we say negative things about ourselves. On the other hand I have gotten myself in a mess (in health and weight as well as other areas of my life) by pretending things are not bad when they are, or pretending I'm not feeling bad feelings when I am.

This thread made me think about how I'm really feeling and being honest only reinforced my feelings of how much I want to and need to fix this.

Fortune favors the bold. Which I interpret as get off the sofa n do something real.

Depends on the day. Some days, like today, I see myself as a person who needs to lose some weight; other days I completely disgust myself. I will change my shirt 5 times to find one that does not enhance my dreaded "BACK FAT," or I try to find the pants that "stretch" with my ever growing waist and hips. On days like this I am usually known a "Bitch" and everyone takes cover. Skinny people beware because I usually take my anger out on you on days like this! Just yesterday I said, "I want to lose enough weight that I can look at a skinny person eating without getting angry!"
