You're so right, Emily, age has so much to do with it, you'd think as we get older, we'd get smarter, but that's not always the case. We have to fight harder, and we can do this, and will.

We're here for you so never stop fighting, move ahead, and we'll get there!!

Thank you for the welcome, Ali! Funny how as the years add up so does the scale. :)

It is so great to be part of a supportive team in this effort! It is so nice to see the support out there for everyone, through the good days and the bad days. You are absolutely right about getting back up when we slip. It will happen to all of us and we can't dwell on it. Get up and move forward! :)

A huge part of this journey for me is mental. I just keep telling myself that I know I can do this and I WANT to do this! I also realize now that everything that brought me to this point in my life was my choice, and now that I see that I can make different and better choices because I want to.

I just want to wish everyone out there the best of luck on their journey and to say that I know we can all do this!

Hi Emily and welcome,
Sorry this is late, I've been gone since the morning you posted and just got back. Welcome to the team. I think many of us have added weights the same way you have, I've been married 32 years this year and yep, same thing (but I've had 2 kids).

So glad you've decided to join us, and sounds like you've got a great start! We're all in the same fight together and we'll conquer this, TEAMWORK, right?

Wow, 17 pound loss total between the two of you is wonderful, congrats. Keep up the great work! You are doing tremendously, don't give up, and if you slip, just get yourself up, brush yourself off and know we all have done it. Stay strong, head up, and keep moving, that's the key, well, and all the other things, but we can do this!

Welcome, again, glad to have you on board! emoticon

Hi Everyone!

My name is Emily and I am 30 years old. I have been happily married to my hubby Andy for 8 years now. We have 2 very active chocolate brown Cockapoos (Tucker and Piper). No kids as of yet. :)

In addition to my husband and 2 dogs, I have unfortunately added some extra pounds over the years. :( I have been struggling with my slow weight gain ever since getting married. Before Andy I was eating right and exercising and in much better shape! I had been very unhappy with myself for quite a while and 3 weeks ago finally hit the breaking point. I realized that so many things that I thought were wrong in my life had to do with how I felt about myself (if that makes any sense). I finally made the decision to really make an effort to get healthier but needed guidance to do it. Sparkpeople has been the answer I needed! With Andy's total support I have lost almost 7 pounds in about 3 weeks. We are eating right and exercising more and I feel so much better, physically and mentally! Andy is looking pretty good, too! He has lost about 10 pounds! We are both feeling so much better! We have both tightened our belts a notch!!! Looking forward to keeping it up and watching the scale numbers and clothing sizes get smaller. :) Pushing to get a really good start before 6 months of winter sets in. ;-)

Take care!
Emily
