I'm 51 yrs old and have been a member here for a while but got away from my trying to be healthy and left. I have returned because I need help getting back to healthy eating and exercise. My Dr has informed me of concerns about my health and told me I need to start eating low carb low fat. I need to really learn how to cook healthier. To me dieting has always been just baking or broiling foods but I want to learn how to make delicious healthy meals my whole family can enjoy. I have three daughters ages 30, 18, and 16. I also have 5 granddaughters. My oldest daughter lost her dad to a motorcycle accident earlier this year. She tells me to please get healthy because she couldn't handle losing me too. I've got to lose weight and get healthier not only for myself but for my family. "I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHICH STRENGTHENS ME"

Member Since: 5/4/2009

Fitness Minutes: 4,095

My Goals:
My goal is to change my lifestyle and be a healthier me. I'm no longer calling it a diet just making healthier choices. My goal is to get to come off my 2 blood pressure meds and never go on diabetic meds. This goal will be met with Christ as my strength.

My Program:
My program is to not call this a diet because the first three letters are die. I just want to make healthier choices and exercise more. I want to get to a healthy weight and to become healthier.

Personal Information:
I am a 46 yr old, married woman from Alabama. I have 3 daughters and 3 grandaughters. I've always been an emotional eater but determined to change this with God's help.

Other Information:
My favorite quote is from the Bible- "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me".

When your down to nothing and God is up to something and the devil comes knocking at the door just simply say "Jesus can you get that for me"

    Welcome to the emotional eaters team. You will get a lot of support, advice and encouragement here. Post us often. We will listen and help pick you up when you mess up and pat you on the back when you succeed. A valuable tool is the nutrition tracker. You will find it under the my tools tab. It will show your calories, fat, carbs and protein. Drink 8 glasses of water a day and get 30 grams of fiber with the water a day. Exercise 30 min. a day. Spark mail me if you need any help. Check out my spark page. Maybe it will inspire you.

    Thanks for the add... I believe in a support system to lean on in times of emotional distress...hopefully I can be part of that for you. Instead of eating, try journaling - either on here or in a notebook. Anything to keep you out of the snacks. In the meantime, get rid of all those horrible snacks - it won't be so bad to emotionally binge if you are doing it with carrot sticks!
