I think I've said this in my main SparkPage: I've been "working on" quitting smoking for about seven years.

Meal planning. It's driving me insane.
I don't really know what to do. For 5% Challenge, I had decided I was going to use Spark meal plans, but then, when I tried to organize them, I realized they kind of blow. I'm sure they're good for ... Read more
What do you want to change? Well, that's purely vanity. I want to change my shape, and be cute again. I used to be super-cute, and you know what? When I was super-cute, I didn't even realize it.
How do you want to look? Mostly thinner,... Read more
I used these adjectives today when I got upset. That's how I feel. I feel a little better now, because after I went through a crying jag, I took a six-hour nap.

I'll make it up at the gym in the next couple days.
I'm editing to ask...it's only almost 8. Should I go back to the gym? I did... Read more
I guess I am not totally out of the funk...Maybe I am. I had a good day today. And the sun set at 4:59 today, which means tomorrow, it will set at 5. Maybe even 5:01.
I went to the gym. I ate within my calorie range. We cooked up foo... Read more
I felt kind of the same way today as I did yesterday, with two big differences. One, I felt really depressed, not just tired and down, but really, really sad about Sammy. Two, I didn't drag my butt to the gym. I went to the pet store to find ... Read more
Today was the first day I was committed to going to the gym. And I didn't go. I was excited until I was sitting in traffic. And it was dark. And it is COLD outside. I get out of work at 4pm, and if I don't leave straightaway, I get stuck in... Read more
My girlfriend and I stopped at Einstein Brothers this morning, and a lady on the sidewalk was walking from the opposite direction and I almost hit her. =( I was really apologetic, but she was not going to hear it, so she kept yelling, even as ... Read more

The challenge today in the group "The Knees" is to blog about my weight loss. I don't know how I got started doing these challenges--I so rarely have gone to my teams--but after I did one, I guess I wanted to have a streak.
I used to be ve... Read more
