I have been struggling with my weight since I was a child. I am an emotional eater. Tried most diets and too many diet products to keep track off. I have finally accepted that there is no "diet" that is going to get and keep me healthy. It is a lifestyle and now, with thyroid issues and getting older, I am finally taking charge of my health. It is up to me. I realize that slow progress is better than no progress, and sometimes there will be "back sliding". I am resolved to get back on track when this happens and not be so hard on myself, which only sets me up for failure. I am encouraged and motivated by so many people on this site. Thank you Spark People!

My goal is to eventually hit my goal weight of 144, and maintain instead of regaining when I am not losing weight.


My Program:
I am NOT on a diet. I am changing my lifestyle, and with that, changing my likes and dislikes with food. Fast food is now pretty gross to me, although pizza does not fall in that category! I am eating healthy, low carbs, virtually no processed sugar/carbs/white stuff (bread, rice, pasta) and exercising 3-4 times per week. If I don't exercise, I miss it. It is no longer a chore.



Personal Information:
My name is Pam, and I live in Antioch, California with my husband. I have grown children, and grandchildren. My husband and I have two dogs, Sammie and Katie. He's retired but I'm still working full time. I love walking, reading, cooking, crafts, most things creative. You can find me on Pinterest Pam Daniels-Barber.


Other Information:
Food can be the best medicine, or the worse poison. Choose wisely.
