Mon, 12 May 2014 08:46:36 EST Restarting: Need Advice, Support and Prayers! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5424812 Hi! My Name is Dana. And this is my 3rd trip back to Spark. <BR> <BR> I guess it's been two years (at least from what I can tell) since I have posted a Video Blog (VLOG) on Spark. You can find my video I put together when I restarted here: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_j<BR>ournal_individual.asp?blog_id=4703898. <BR> <BR> It's been about three years since I was dedicated and active. <BR> <BR> Let me tell you a bit about me. <BR> <BR> I am a 35 year old mother of three girls... Thu, 18 Jul 2013 00:18:42 EST Good Monday Morning! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4711857 Here is my update in type! <BR> <BR> My husband is at home sick today and while I love my husband dearly I am so ready for him to get well and get out of my living room. So, maybe this afternoon he will go to sleep and I can Vlog - I still can't do this in front of him. <BR> <BR> My weekend wasn't the best - where I don't think I feel completely off the wagon I also didn't count any calories. Friday night I had homemade pizza with peppers and goat cheese - yum, but I am not sure the calori... Mon, 30 Jan 2012 09:50:13 EST Friday Morning Ramble! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4706898 Oh wow…I didn’t realize that was 18 minutes long – sorry. <BR> Here is a summary in case you don’t want to watch all of it. <BR> I got on the scale this morning – in know! I am trying not to be addicted to the scale, but I am down one pound from Wednesday. I can’t weigh myself everyday though because then I am going to get all stupid about it and say “urgh just one pound that is it” and then I will get all negative. <BR> My homework for myself is to find recipes I can cook and not worry ab...

Thu, 26 Jan 2012 22:46:41 EST Restart: My Spark Journey http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4703898 I decided to snazzy it up a bit, get creative and tell you my journey so far with SparkPeople. <BR> <BR> My oldest daughter watched this video and said she was so proud of me. She said she was proud that I was getting healthy again and that I was doing it for her. <BR> Wed, 25 Jan 2012 18:21:50 EST Baby Steps http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4703253 Hello to all of my Lovely Spark Friends! Oh how I have missed you! Look at you all! I am so happy to see so many of you still here and you are still doing Awesome! <BR> As for me things are ehh. I probably should not have posted my last Vlog and been all “I am back and staying back” because that lasted for one day and then I was back to treating my body like crap. <BR> That is pretty much what it has come down to. I stopped breasting feeding mid-December and since then have treated my body l...

Mon, 3 Jan 2011 22:44:16 EST Blog...no Vlog http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3761359 Oh married life is such an adjustment. First off and hope this doesn’t sound just awful, but Matt is going to be in town the entire month of November – this means Vlogs from the bedroom. <BR> <BR> Remember back in the day when I vlogged from the bathroom floor? That was for two reasons. One, the light was a lot better then in the bedroom and secondly, Matt could not hear me. What is with us and not wanting to vlog in front of our people? <BR> <BR> Last night we were catching up on biggest...
