Well, this was not such a good week. I gained a little bit, which I didn't expect, since I thought I had done well (although not great) -- I figured I had lost about 1 pound. I thought I had planned out my food appropriately and got some exerc... Read more
End of Week 4 of BLC! I had a rough week last week, which was frustrating because I thought I was in good shape, but I think it was due to my "visitor." I got a bit frustrated by it though and kinda threw my hands up in the air, but the WW cou... Read more
HI Sparkpeople world! I haven't been very vocal on here in quite a while, but I have still been around. For the Biggest Loser Challenge I"m doing right now, one of the tasks is a weekly update blog, so here I go.
This week was A-OK. I jo... Read more
This blog won't be a 90%-asleep, so garbled you can't read it blog like I tried to write last time. Just an update with a few thoughts.

Where I've been for weeks.....
I have been severely MIA on Spark for several weeks now, and I have to emote/get this down. I have kept logging in, and trying to read blogs, but have been delinquent on actually following the program and paying attention to my BLC Pink Pythons... Read more

BLC WUB #6
I am having trouble with the boat. I keep saying, I fell off the boat, but anytime I've said that, I really just meant exercise. I've never really been in the boat with food. I realized when I looked at Sonia's blog from the challenges for We... Read more
Weekly Update Blog #2
Well, this week was a disaster. I only had one meal at home out of 14, I think. I will have to edit and post my chart from this week. There's going to be a LOT of red on that chart. A lot of that will be simply unknown, so it's red because I... Read more

And the third hammer finally dropped...
This is going to be a lot shorter than it was originally going to be. I'm actually hanging in there, which is a huge surprise to me given my history...but it's all been really distracting and rather devastating and has caused a lot of binging a... Read more

Reflections on BLC articles/quizzes and points breakdown
Thoughts on the Aerobic Exercise article:
