Well I'm back after 2 years. Going to try to focus on making the right food choices for a better body image! ~ 9/27/13

I'm doing a low carb, high fat, moderate protein daily intake of food. Am tracking my food (the good & bad) daily. The pounds are coming off & my body mass is shrinking! I feel better mentally & physically!

4/1/14 ~ Feeling better, happier each day. My friends are overjoyed to see this new positive person slowly emerging!

6/13/14 ~ Love how I am feeling. Enjoying life and laughing more. Weight loss (57 lbs gone) is really noticeable now. People who know me when I was heavier~ now don't recognize me unless they take a 2nd look.

    How is the gelatin? I am considering buying that brand and wanted to make sure was worth it (I know Knox isn't as good for you but its SO much cheaper).

    Hi! Thank you so very much for the add! Also for such great feedback on my little blog. I need to spend more time reading. I wish they had an eating plan for Paleo on here. Oh well cant help but love this site! Say, would you happen to know anything about bullet proof coffee? I finally gave up eating fast food, so far, so good! Also pizza, it was like a drug to me. Cooking at home again, so we'll see if I can make it work this time. It seems difficult now, but I hope it gets easier. Thanks again! Your fabulous! emoticon

    Got busy, that's an excuse. Honestly, I just got frustrated tracking calories and exercise.
    I still track my calories, but usually in a notebook in the kitchen.
    I have slacked on exercise, I admit it.
    I'm going to try to start logging in every day again. It really does help me stay on track with the exercise minutes.
    Most importantly, though, I'm sorry I wasn't here for you.
    The loss of a loved one is hard.
    Please know I am sending you peaceful, hopeful thoughts.
    Your Spark friend, Quin emoticon
