BEATLETOT's SparkPeople Blog BEATLETOT's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Oct-Sober and Other Things I haven't written a blog in a long time. There are a lot of ideas swirling in my head, and I think, "This is brilliant! I should TOTALLY blog about it!" but then I don't. They continue to swirl, and maybe someday, I'll write them all down. <BR> <BR> Starting on September 30, I'm giving up alcohol. I don't have a drinking problem, but I do like a beer in the evening, and I think that it's really cutting into my deficit. My deficit is already really kind of sad, as a 4'10.5", 33-year-old woman... Tue, 27 Sep 2016 22:32:57 EST Fremdscham I've been watching the probably unsurprising uproar about the changes to the SparkPages since I first clicked on a blog link on my Friend Feed and realized there was a change. The changes are fine. I agree that the old pages looked, well, old. These are more modern, and everything is still there. <BR> <BR> My feelings toward the people who were upset by the changes have morphed from sympathy to amusement to fremdscham to utter disgust. <BR> <BR> I understood them first. I saw myself in the ... Sun, 22 May 2016 14:41:06 EST SparkPeople's "Customer" Service This is so the kind of blog that I would pretend that I was going to register a very serious complaint, but I just can't today. <BR> <BR> <em>252</em> <em>252</em> <em>252</em> <em>252</em> <em>252</em> <em>252</em> <em>252</em> <BR> <BR> On Tuesday, while getting out of my friend's car, my SparkPeople Activity Tracker got caught on something and broke off. <em>40</em> <BR> <BR> I posted to the SPAT team about my broken clip, and Coach Jen told me to send my address, and they'... Sun, 8 May 2016 11:48:43 EST Self-Care Sunday: Trails, Beer and Cookies The last blog I wrote, I thought I was really focusing on the comfort of sitting down to a really corny movie, but most of the comments were about Self-Care Sunday, so I thought I'd write another one about what I did today for Self-Care Sunday. <BR> <BR> I was going to go to the gym for 45 minutes today, but we did some yardwork instead. I kind of wanted to skip, but my husband had asked me to pick up something from the grocery store that is next to the gym, so I started to get ready to head... Sun, 24 Apr 2016 19:17:06 EST A Hallmark Weekend My husband was gone again this weekend. After the last time, I would get the very occasional pang, "Man, I wish I had watched Hallmark Channel movies while he was gone." Weird, right? <BR> <BR> I never watch those. I watch the Hallmark Channel, because they have reruns of the Middle and the Golden Girls, and I see the cheesy commercials. I had put them in the same drawer of my mind as I do the Lifetime movies. I mean, the content is completely different, but they're both corny with bad actin... Sun, 17 Apr 2016 19:45:15 EST Freedom I dropped my husband off at the airport tonight. I now have nine days, just me and the dog. <BR> <BR> Whatever will I do? Suggestions? <BR> <BR> Right now, we are chilling on the couch. I am going to the library to do some research this weekend. I'll have some time for a Self-Care Sunday. I'll hit the gym several times. I'd like to drop a couple pounds... <BR> <BR> I don't have to cook because my husband does that, so he made sure I'm all stocked up on split peas, tuna salad, and "peanut ... Fri, 18 Mar 2016 20:41:26 EST Pretty Low It's been a rough month. <BR> <BR> I've been committed to visit my grandmother once a year for the last several years. My plan for this year was to go see her in April for her 91st birthday. I say "my" like it was mine, but it wasn't. My sister had a baby and wanted to introduce her to her great-grandmother in April for her birthday. These visits can be very difficult, so I wanted to tag along to have support when it got sad. <BR> <BR> Last month, my grandmother had some diagnostic care don... Sun, 21 Feb 2016 15:56:22 EST Weighing Everyday - The Evolution I think some people might feel strongly on this issue. Should one weigh everyday? Or will it just cause neurosis? There are ups and downs on the scale. You don't want to be so obsessed with a number. Or discouraged if you have a higher number due to water weight, food in your belly, hormones, etc., etc.... <BR> <BR> I used to think I wanted to weigh myself frequently, because *what if* a day I missed is the day that I actually showed a loss? Because weight loss was so mysterious and elusive,... Sun, 4 Oct 2015 07:57:57 EST Have Only Been Maintaining - Bonus! A Cool Tool Do you know why I haven't really been losing anything, just sticking with the same three or so pounds the last little while? Hormones? Genetics? <BR> <BR> Nope. Check this out: <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> And there's the answer. I've been eating at maintenance. Not cool for someone trying to lose weight. <BR> <BR> I just got back from a camping trip with my really fit friends. It's always a little embarra... Mon, 7 Sep 2015 22:00:39 EST More Weight Loss Sanity I read this article today. I skipped the top section, but the rest was a good read, a good reminder of the definition of a calorie and how weight loss occurs: <BR> <BR> <link><BR>-in-nutrition/ </link> Mon, 8 Jun 2015 18:51:20 EST Now I Understand Why I Haven't Been Losing Weight! Here are a couple really good articles that put a lot of what we hear about weight loss into perspective: <BR> <BR> <link><BR>i-not-losing-weight/ </link> <BR> <BR> This one I read awhile ago and loved it. Someone had linked to it under an SP article. I think about it often and was glad to stumble on it, linked from the above blog. It's by the same writer: <BR> <BR> <link><BR>ode/ </link> Thu, 28 May 2015 18:45:27 EST Please, Take Care of Yourselves Today, I Googled a friend of mine from high school. He was actually a work friend, and the older cousin of a good friend. He was morbidly obese. He would eat an entire container of Cool Whip after a bucket of fried chicken. His shirts were always stretched tight and busting at the seams. I remember him talking one day about how once he had better health insurance, he would get bariatric surgery. I remember him coming with his mom to pick us up from the mall on his 21st birthday. He kept a pic... Mon, 25 May 2015 17:30:21 EST Changing Focus I collect stickers. <BR> <BR> It started when I quit smoking. I used to walk into CVS and walk out with stickers instead of cigarettes (now you can't buy them there if you wanted to!), and it got a bit out of hand. People gift me with them, I buy them everywhere, and I just...I have a lot of stickers. <BR> <BR> I didn't know what to do with this large collection after it got large, so I decided I would write letters, smother them in stickers and send them to people. I committed to one lette... Fri, 22 May 2015 19:53:42 EST Excuses, excuses... I, um, "ride" my stationary bike while I watch TV (what DOES one do on a stationary bike?). I "ride" it while I watch The People's Court. I "ride" it while I watch Judge Judy, Roseanne and Suze. I "ride" it while I watch Blanche, Dorothy, Rose and Sophia. I "ride" it while I watch The Middle, which I am moderately obsessed with (that's an oxymoron, no? Moderately obsessed?). <BR> <BR> I could go on, but I won't. You get the picture. I watch too much TV, but I "ride" my bike while doing so. <... Tue, 24 Mar 2015 15:44:48 EST My Dissatisfaction With Spaghetti Geez, I can't believe it's been so long since I've had any thoughts to jot down and keep in mind regarding weight loss. <BR> <BR> I'm down 3.8 pounds since February 20. That's nice. I'm being very, very strict with No S. I cheated at No S A LOT for AWHILE, and the dumb thing about that is that it's just like eating a lot all the time. You have to DO it for it to work. <BR> <BR> I am doing better with it, because 1. EVERYTHING COUNTS. It COUNTS! If you sneak a sweet, it counts. If you don't ... Mon, 16 Mar 2015 19:49:45 EST A Few More Thoughts and Reactions Well, shucks, guys! Thanks so much for the suggestions and comments and questions!!! <BR> <BR> I have heard of muesli. I never eat it, though. I'm not a huge fan of yogurt, but what ACCEPTHECHALLENGE described sounds really yummy, and if it keeps me full, all the better. I do feel like I have my breakfasts down pat and know what I can and how much to eat to get me through to lunch, but hey, sometimes you gotta switch things up. <BR> <BR> When I said pasta doesn't fill me up, I meant any kin... Thu, 26 Feb 2015 04:02:03 EST Today's Thoughts I can't guarantee I'm going to do this everyday, but I realized that if I actually noted my thoughts about losing weight and the choices I make, and the things I do, I may recognize the patterns better than if I just try to keep them in my head. It won't be very organized, either, especially at first, because I'll be sort of catching up at the beginning. Nothing to see here, really. <BR> <BR> Breakfast: Peanut butter and banana sandwiches keep me full until lunchtime. One egg thingie from th... Tue, 24 Feb 2015 23:30:57 EST Welcome Home! I moved back to Virginia on the 23rd, and so far it's been okay. My husband found a job right away! He was looking in the Chicagoland area for two years and found NOTHING. He's here less than two weeks, and he already has something. I'm glad, because, yeah, hello, money, but also because it provides further evidence that it wasn't him or his resume, but stupid Chicago and Northwest Indiana that was the problem. Third largest city...mutter... <BR> <BR> And our tenants I guess were good, as fa... Thu, 12 Feb 2015 19:55:26 EST Forgiveness Anchor - An Epiphany So in my last blog (that was almost two weeks ago--so much for once a week blogging!), I mentioned how after I put in my notice, Drizella came to my office to ask why, and then I let loose on her and told her (almost) everything that I needed to say. Almost. In my loss of snark, I forgot to say, "So I'm taking my 'folksy' Georgetown education and my 'down home' international experience, and going back to DC, where people are used to a higher standard of professionalism." <BR> <BR> And there ... Tue, 20 Jan 2015 08:48:19 EST (sorta) Celebrating Well I put my notice in at my job today. Thank goodness, this nightmare is almost over. I talked to the big boss, and then sent an email to all relevant parties. Drizella was soon at my door asking me why. And I let it all out. <BR> <BR> I told her there were lots of reasons, but that the biggest is that I'm not doing another performance evaluation with them again. She said that the evaluation would be different this year, because I did a good job this year. I said that I did a good job the year ... Mon, 5 Jan 2015 20:48:15 EST Who Can Think of a Clever, Creative Title for a New Year's Blog? I can't. We are leaving soon for a dinner, and I don't think I'll have time to blog between now and midnight, otherwise, so here I am. <BR> <BR> I have read some really, really beautiful blogs for the New Year. JOHNTJ1, THE-SHELBSTER, FEEDTHEHUNGER, ONEKIDSMOM, PIXIE-LICIOUS...I don't know if I have these names just right, I'm in a bit of a hurry, but they have written just, wow, and I'm quite sure you know who I'm talking about! I feel pretty inadequate trying to put this together and with such a ti... Wed, 31 Dec 2014 22:17:41 EST My Forgiveness Anchor I haven't been working very hard on my anchors, because it's easy to throw things out there into cyberspace and then forget about them. Plus, I've had quite a lot going on with really important, pressing things that I'll share once there is more to tell. But I did get to spend some time this week thinking about forgiveness and getting there. And jeepers. It is TOUGH. <BR> <BR> Forgiveness is such an abstract term. Almost ethereal, really. I think it's hard for most of us to wrap our heads ar... Tue, 16 Dec 2014 17:46:52 EST Those Anchors In early October, I wrote a blog about my anchors. I kept adding to the list (which started out at about 12, I think) until I had two dozen things that in some way or another "hold me down." Here is the list: <BR> <BR> 1. My student loan debt <BR> 2. My sentimentality <BR> 3. My strong sense of nostalgia <BR> 4. My dog (hinders traveling) <BR> 5. My weight <BR> 6. My old clothes that must fit someday <BR> 7. My tendency to procrastinate <BR> 8. My anxiety <BR> 9. My funks <B... Thu, 20 Nov 2014 07:32:12 EST Basically the Same Blog I'm quite sure I have written this kind of thing and had these thoughts about commitment and stick-to-it-tive-ness, and how this SparkProgram I've been doing for 7 years would work if I actually DID it, rather than "doing" it. But maybe the fact that I saw myself in someone else will make a difference. <BR> <BR> Last night, I got a notification that one of my groups that there was a new message board topic. It was a new person. The person introduced herself, and she said that she was "going ... Mon, 3 Nov 2014 20:51:02 EST A Mug... I just realized I never updated this blog: <link><BR>urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=4218525 </link> <BR> <BR> Probably because I forgot I had made such a blog entry. But I have a very old update! You should read the old blog first before continuing... <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> Today, I am drinking from a mug. It's a black mug. It has Karl Marx's face and says Karl-Marx Universitaet Trier on it. How did I get this mug? Well, it's a story. <BR> <BR> When tha... Thu, 23 Oct 2014 15:17:31 EST My Anchors I've been reading those self-help books again. <em>246</em> This time, I'm reading up on decluttering, so that I only schlep what I want to schlep back home. The local women's shelter is very happy with us, as we've emptied out our linen closet and kitchen. We have been schlepping a giant plastic bag full of new, still individually-wrapped silverware around, and I have NO idea where it came from, when it got into our inventory of crap, and how it got there. I just know it has moved with us... Sun, 5 Oct 2014 09:50:51 EST Strategizing I'm copying and pasting a similar exercise from a couple years ago, but changing it up a little to recognize the changes in my lifestyle at this time (i.e., I don't really eat meat now). <BR> <BR> Give 3 or 4 reasons and for each (reason/excuse on why my diets and exercise plans have not been well-executed in the past) write a strategy that will keep me on track for 8 weeks. <BR> <BR> I really like this assignment. It is methodical and systematic. It also reminds me of the EX method of qui... Thu, 4 Sep 2014 20:44:33 EST Had It Backward... So during the Pound-A-Thon Challenge, I decided I would weigh myself if certain conditions were met. They were that I had to stay in my calorie range and stay in my sodium range, among other things. <BR> <BR> I didn't weigh very often. <BR> <BR> If I stayed in calorie range, I was eating chili or spaghetti sauce (high in sodium). If I stayed in my sodium range, I ate too much. <BR> <BR> And then I weighed myself today after my camping trip today. YIKES. I don't even want to tell you! <BR> ... Wed, 3 Sep 2014 19:38:07 EST Something Old... After over a year hiatus, I'm back on the 5% Challenge. I was very active on the challenge for a couple years, taking on leadership roles and having a blast, but never lost my 5%. <BR> <BR> I can do this. I can lose my 5%. <BR> <BR> The Pre-Challenge assignments are mostly the same. I am writing out my Nutrition Commitment and Fitness Commitment now and will work through the others in short order. The very committed and hard-working Overall Challenge Leaders have added a couple really good-... Tue, 2 Sep 2014 11:22:00 EST Repost of the Blog I Wrote Earlier I posted a blog then got all freaked out because I did it from my work computer. So I deleted it. Not that it would matter if they were monitoring it, but I don't know. Do people still do that? I figure there is too much web traffic at even the smallest offices for anyone to actually monitor any more the way they seemed to in the 90s. But still, you can never be too careful. <BR> <BR> Since it's still valid, here it is: <BR> <BR> I had a bad dream last night. I dreamt that the Scarecrow was... Mon, 16 Jun 2014 19:32:12 EST Blue Zones I was reading this blog: <link><BR>cond-wind-in-body-acceptance/ </link> <BR> <BR> which linked me to this article: <link><BR>tters/2014/05/22/what-if-we-all-just-s<BR>topped-trying-to-lose-weight-video/ </link> <BR> <BR> which comes with a video. <BR> <BR> And it was lovely and inspiring. It talked about what I'm hoping to achieve through this month--keeping healthy habits for their own sake, rather than for w... Fri, 13 Jun 2014 03:58:45 EST I Am In Love With Myself and with a lot of other people, really. Tommy Shaw, for one. He is so hot. For reals. <BR> <BR> But especially with myself. Today, within a span of 20 minutes, I had--no kidding!--five jobs fall into my lap, or my inbox, as it were. The first was from a guy I emailed just to say hi 9 months ago when I was deliriously happy here, telling me that they have an opening, and to please let him know if I'm interested, he'll email me when it posts. Then, the other four were from a friend who told me... Tue, 10 Jun 2014 13:54:05 EST Puppies My puppy ate the carpet today. Like, a lot. There's no way we're getting our security deposit back now. I wanted to murder her. <BR> <BR> But then, I heard her heaving under the couch. I looked under there just in time to see her upchuck. When I went to clean it up, there were SPLINTERS in it. <BR> <BR> So I freaked out, found subs for my work, called my husband (who's overseas right now), sobbing about what a horrible mother I am and what if she isn't going to be okay? <BR> <BR> I took he... Sat, 24 May 2014 22:27:47 EST Investment in Confidence I'm trying to decide if I should spend $50 at Sephora so I can get a consultation there before my upcoming conference. On one hand, I'm kind of uncomfortable about money these days, but on the other hand, it might help my confidence and my appearance for the conference, where I'm hoping to put out feelers on a new job. <BR> <BR> My skin hasn't been looking as nice as it used to, and I've never been good with color and the actual putting-on of these things. However, I'm sure I spend the $50 o... Fri, 23 May 2014 10:48:06 EST I've Held These "Truths" to Be Self-Evident. I got a birthday card last year. This blog has been sitting in my drafts box for a looooong time--at least five months. Anyway, my friend who sent me the birthday card isn't just anyone--she's a very good friend who lived with us for a year and a half, so she knows a lot about me and my lifestyle. In the card, she wished me a day full of my favorite things: puppies, massages, mac and cheese, salt and vinegar chips, and Judge Judy. <BR> <BR> This got me thinking. Is this what people associa... Fri, 16 May 2014 19:22:51 EST 2014, you're about to get owned. So, I think I've thoroughly regrouped after my performance evaluation. I've come to terms with the fact that if I'd had it earlier, this wouldn't have happened, that these people are not going to change their minds, no matter how ridiculous, and I shouldn't care what they think. I realize that I should have known once my primary supervisor jumped out of her chair, ran from the room and with a quavering voice whispered, "Drizella, can you come here for a minute?" that I already won. Wimp. I'm ... Sun, 2 Mar 2014 10:12:25 EST The Post-Evaluation Email I Wish I Could Send Dear Drizella and Anastasia, <BR> <BR> I wanted to follow up on the meeting we had on Friday evening--my performance evaluation. I am glad to have had some time to decompress all of it, and now want to go over some of the issues I see. <BR> <BR> First of all, I am offended to have had to sit there and be told I don't have to "count my hours" or "defend myself," when it's quite clear that I do. Anastasia's eye-rolling when I said that I'd been taking photos of the clocks outside the office w... Sat, 1 Mar 2014 19:08:13 EST So over these people... I was a grouch today. I admit that. This doggie was allowed to sleep with us last night, and she couldn't decide if she was hot or cold, so she went back and forth from under the covers to next to my head over and over, panting when she was hot. After my husband finally got up and put her away, I still had a hard time and woke up three more times. <BR> <BR> So everything everybody did was getting on my nerves. Plus, I'm still smarting from the blowback from my supervisors at the beginning of... Tue, 11 Feb 2014 20:58:01 EST Brendarelly, Brendarelly... I know it's been awhile since I've blogged, but I don't know. I have a blog sitting in my drafts box, and I just haven't had the desire to finish it. Perhaps I will at some point. <BR> <BR> Daisy's doing well. She is very sweet and silly. Yeeeeeah, I'd say I love her. Not as much as Sammy, and I'll never love her like I loved him, but that's okay. She'll have her own "groovy kind of love." <BR> <BR> So far, New Year's stuff is going okay. I'm meeting my goals with decent consistency. I stil... Wed, 15 Jan 2014 22:36:28 EST So...I Got a Puppy... Yeah, I got a puppy. Seeing her and getting her made me realize I'm not quite ready for a new dog, but my husband sure is. He had, like, hearts coming out of his eyes like a cartoon character when he saw her. Ah-OOO-ga! <em>100</em> <BR> <BR> Oh, and she's sweet. She's pretty and silly and smart. We named her Daisy. She's just not mine, yet, but she will be. Probably won't take too long. She's quite lovable. =) <BR> <BR> My husband didn't care too much for Sammy when we first got him. ... Tue, 8 Oct 2013 15:07:52 EST Impossible Day! Tracking my calories today would be a lesson in futility, starting with even the most basic thing one takes for granted when tracking calories: I can't even tell where yesterday ended and today began! Overnight flights, man. I'm in Brasilia, the capital of Brazil, on business right now. <BR> <BR> Plus, I did poorly with even the most basic tenets...nibbles here and there abounded. And lunch was a buffet, and though I only ate one plate, it was a big plate with a lot of things I couldn't iden... Thu, 29 Aug 2013 21:42:57 EST Eh, sort of a NSV, followed by...not one. I went to get a massage today, because I got an email special. I'd never used this guy before, and he was really, really good. His background was in physical therapy, so he really knew his stuff. Unfortunately, he was quite a talker, which I don't like. You are rubbing my calloused, rough, disgusting feet, my hairy legs, and navigating gobs of fat to get to the parts you're supposed to fix. I do not want to hear about your plans for the evening. Let's save the humanizing for after I'm dressed... Sat, 24 Aug 2013 19:20:45 EST Minor Binge... I went over my calories today. It was the first time. I had 10 days of being in-range. I didn't mean to go over, and I only barely went over...and what tipped me over was a pluot I'd forgotten I'd eaten at lunch! That's what happens when you eat fruit...! =) <BR> <BR> Well, I was hungry, anyway, when I remembered my pluot, and I was already over. So I went a wee bit nuts. Now I don't feel good. But it's okay. Now I want 11 days minimum in-range from now on. <BR> <BR> I found a dog I want to... Thu, 22 Aug 2013 00:17:38 EST All Kinds of Loss... Today wasn't easy. <BR> <BR> I wound up not picking up Sammy's ashes. I couldn't. I really couldn't. I feel very bad about it but I made my husband go by himself. I could be there with Sammy at the end, because he needed me, but this was just too hard. <BR> <BR> And all I want to do is eat. <BR> <BR> I haven't gone over my calorie range since I re-started everything. I've been doing really great with that. But today, I SO wanted to. I did break a rule by eating a candy bar this evening, bu... Tue, 20 Aug 2013 20:33:36 EST My Baby's Gone We had to take Sammy to the vet on Monday to be put down. It was hands-down, no-question, the absolute worst day of my entire life...until the next day, which was even worse. <BR> <BR> It had to be done. He cried a lot, couldn't stand at all and on Saturday, he wasn't eating. We took him to four different vets, including a woo woo doctor that gave him acupuncture and chiropractic treatments...but I just couldn't fix him. <BR> <BR> The pain has been completely unbearable. We had an intense r... Fri, 2 Aug 2013 11:49:15 EST Deviant Prey Dang, has it been a long time since I've blogged or what?! Well, not for nothing, but I have been here, checking my friend feed, tracking my exercise, intermittently tracking my food intake... <BR> <BR> I've been traveling a lot for work. Two trips ago, I went to DC, which was AWESOME, because I miss it there like crazy. I got to see so many friends and do so many things I used to do when I lived there. And the conference was very informative, of course! <BR> <BR> They had me set up at the ... Fri, 19 Jul 2013 22:32:04 EST Sugar Tooth Ramble I haven't been around much, because I went to visit my grandmother with my sister AMYLONGHORN. Grandma's birthday was on Sunday, and it was really great to see her and make her happy and really hard to see how she's declining and then leave her. My heart hurt so badly as we closed the door behind us the last time, knowing on the other side, she was sitting alone. Still quite hurts thinking about it. <BR> <BR> I haven't gotten any exercise this week with the visit. Also, something somewhere o... Wed, 10 Apr 2013 21:46:16 EST Million Step Club First, my sugar stuff...I ate a Jordan almond, and not a second one, which was good. We had a luncheon today at work, so I was holding off on eating, but I was STARVING. I ate one chocolate, and then had another one. One thing I noticed (not for the first time) is that, because I eat so quickly, I normally eat twice...once like a snake, and then again to savor it. It'd be nice if I could teach myself to skip that first step! <BR> <BR> Husband and I both joined the "Million Step Club" at my ... Wed, 3 Apr 2013 21:18:38 EST Doo-Doo-Doo DOO doo-DOO! CAAAARBS! <em>335</em> <em>300</em> <BR> <BR> I was only hopeful I'd get insights on my Sweet Tooth that doesn't really need taming. But today, I had some! <BR> <BR> First of all, I craved them, and when not sweets, craved SOMETHING today. I was sleepy. I went to bed too late last night, and then my Baby-Monster-Dog woke me up at 3:30am, so I was dragging. And I kept thinking chocolate would help. But I didn't eat chocolate. I went an got a fountain of Diet DP. And *voice dropping to a mumble* I... Tue, 2 Apr 2013 21:14:13 EST Taming My Sweet Tooth I don't actually have a sweet tooth. <BR> <BR> Ice cream? Doesn't faze me. <BR> <BR> Store-bought chocolate chip cookies? I'll pass. <BR> <BR> Sugary cereal? Pshaw. <BR> <BR> And so it goes... <BR> <BR> So why am I taming my sweet tooth? Because I decided to do all the official SparkPeople eating challenges. <BR> <BR> Why would I do that? <BR> <BR> Because my diet sucks. <BR> <BR> Anyway, I'm supposed to make a list of reasons that I want to cut back on the sugar. There are only a... Mon, 1 Apr 2013 22:26:09 EST
