I think the tag line says it all. My name is Angel and I'm 31 years old. I have just had the most challenging year of my life and the struggles continue. However, today I chose to be in the solution rather than the problem. I have learned more about who I AM and what is most important to ME in MY LIFE. I have hope about what the future holds as long as I keep focused and continue to take action instead of being just a player on the sidelines watching life go by instead of living it. I have struggled with my weight all my life. I have been successful in losing upto 40+ pounds in the past but I inevitably gain it all back. I have realized through SP that weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight is a life style change not a "temporary phase" I go through. I am confident that I can reach my goals and am commited to being a healthier and happier ME for ME.

    ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¨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!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)
    Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
    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. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
