emoticon Guess I'm your closest neighbour here up in "cottage country" - or so the Toronto newscasters like to call it! Both my son and daughter are in the Toronto area - East York and North York. My daughter is also on SP.
You have made the right move for your long-term health coming back to SP and deciding to take control. There are many on SP who will cheer you on - just get involved in some chat threads or group challenges. It sure helped me along the way - and still does!
As Charlotte mentioned, do come visit the chat thread - even if it's been a bit quiet lately. Sometimes we're there chatting more often.

Good luck to you on your journey!

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Breathe in love & compassion.. Breathe out peace & forgiveness.

From my friend Besshale.....maintenance is as much work as losing but we get to do it in cuter clothes.

Hi Everyone!!

I was first on Sparkpeople over 10 years ago and loved it, however, it seems whenever a change happens in my world I fall to pieces and emotionally/stress eat. In the last five years, my family has moved from Winnipeg to Vancouver to Richmond Hill On and most recently to Toronto.
I am in my early 40s now with well over 100lbs to loose.
I am hoping to make new friends to chat with and support each other.
I look forward to getting to know you all :)
