I just re-joined Spark after a long hiatus. My biggest problems are a sedentary job, boredom/emotional eating and portion control... and along with medications that had "weight gain" as a side effect I'm the heaviest I've ever been. I know I've only got myself to blame and now I'm hoping to be on the right track again. My hubby challenged me to our own Biggest Loser challenge. I intend to beat his pants off and keep it that way!
