What will it take for me to commit to being healthy? How much weight do I need to gain before I commit to checking in to SparkPeople daily? How much pain do I need to be in before I pull some weight off this very tired body? Being this heavy, fe... Read more
SparkCoach has instructed me to blog three compliments of myself. Sigh. This shouldn't be so difficult.
1. I'm a good mom.
2. I have a good sense of humor.
3. I'm smart.
I could probably easily think of 30 things I don't lik... Read more
I started working downtown. It's a consulting job that may turn into a permanent job. I absolutely love the work. However, the commute is rough. I get up between 4:30 and 5:00 in the morning. I get home around 6:30pm.
I started eating a to... Read more
I'm struggling lately with making good food choices. I haven't been writing down my challenges in my journal. I have hated food shopping lately. I don't feel like cooking. The good news in all of this is that even though I'm not doing as well as... Read more
Today, I'm wearing my new pink SparkPeople t-shirt and drinking from my new SparkPeople glass water bottle. They are gifts from my husband and my son. They both are very supportive of my weight-loss journey. My son even got me a birthday card th... Read more

I have a sore arm. I pulled a muscle or tendons or something yesterday. I haven't gone to the doctor, but I may have someone look at it tomorrow if I'm not feeling better. I couldn't sleep last night, because it just hurt too much. I finally end... Read more
I had an a-ha moment today. Sometimes I consider eating healthy and exercising a punishment because I'm morbidly obese. Too many times, I have eaten healthy foods grudgingly. Too many times I've rolled my eyes at exercise as if it's something te... Read more
I lost three pounds this past week. I'm ecstatic. However, I had a non-scale victory (NSV) that was just as important to me, if not more so. I felt crummy this weekend. I just felt achy and icky. All I wanted to do was sleep and eat. (I almost a... Read more
Every once in a while, I feel as if I have the flu. It's usually when my allergies are bothering me. I ache all over and have a slight fever. That happened this weekend. I felt really crummy on Friday and Saturday, and I got very little done. I'... Read more
I'm feeling a little blah today. I'm not sure why. Things are going well with my nutrition and fitness. I'm kind of sore, but it's nothing serious. I'm not sure why I've got the blues today. Well, it will pass.
I recently bought the Spark Activity Tracker. I had been thinking about getting a Fitbit or something like that, so I was really excited when SP came up with their own tracker.
I really like the tracker. So far, I've only used it for walkin... Read more

I know you are embarr... Read more
