I have finally figured out that I love the thought of doing something about my health and weight, but just don't like actually doing it. It's kinda like it gives me a project to work on and I never have to fail because I never really start. I just bought a new road bike and can't wait to hit the road. I love being outside and this gives me another great way to do just that. The only thing is I feel self-conscious because of my weight. So here I am!

My Goals:
“Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”
Mark Victor Hansen

My Program:
Walk 4 x week. On other days work on working out with weights or on my eliptical. Plan my meals on a daily basis and track what I eat. Stay on track with my food plan. When frustrated, instead of eating I will take deep breaths, take a walk or whatever I can think of to distract myself and calm down.

Personal Information:
I moved to Tucson in October 2004 and love it here. It was a difficult transition coming from Seattle but the right choice for many reasons.
I enjoy the outdoors, gardening, hiking, reading, scrapbooking, nature, dogs and my family.

Other Information:
I would love to hear your thoughts on the web site, how its working, or not working for you, and life in general.

    Hey there, IAMAZGIRL,
    I, too, live in Tucson and am back on SparkPeople (New Year's resolutions and all...). This is just an encouraging note to keep at it -- we'll get to our goal weights and health goals if we just keep plugging away at it this year. I like to scrapbook too.

    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!!

    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. 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!!!
