Are you ready to "SPARK" through your weekend?
I am. To be quite frank I'm nervous about it. This is a big weekend for food in my hometown. We are having our annual festival and there's a local fair going on this weekend. My standard fare in these places is just about as greasy as you ca... Read more
3 whole pushups, seriously...
I did it! I reached a goal. 3 pushups! In a row! HA! It sounds so stupid to say it out loud. But it's true and I am SO proud of it. Seriously guys, I used to not even be able to do one push up. This is a big step for me. I'm going to tr... Read more
I wish I was a little bit taller...
Here's my funny take on an old Skee Lo song.
I wish I was a little bit taller
I wish my waist was smaller
I wish I was a girl who looked good
so guys would call her
I wish I had a bikini and mini
and a model figure
I wish I... Read more
Twist it, mold it, apply it...winning combination!
Okay, I had my night all planned out. I was so excited because my husband was having a "guys night out". I was going to have the house to myself. Except for my son of course, but that's no big deal because he goes to bed at seven. Here is wh... Read more
I'm not going to let it get to me this time, I can't.
It's been a rough week. I'm not going to lie. I've had a funeral and a wedding this week so the emotions have been up and down and the healthy lifestyle has been on the same roller coaster ride of insanity. Still, I thought I was doing well, ... Read more
Embarking on the unknown...will I fail?
A bit melodramatic perhaps, but to a food addict it makes perfect sense. A wedding. No big deal, right? Wrong. So very very wrong. To me it is like a death sentence. And this is no ordinary wedding. It's a (to quote the invitation) "a fri... Read more
My BEST temptation busting tip EVER!!!!
Okay folks, it may seem a little silly, but here it is...
First let me say I TRY to let myself have a little of the "naughty" stuff so I don't go crazy. However, I think we all know that there are times when a little turns into a gorge fes... Read more
$500 worth of new clothes???
A couple of years ago my husband told me that if I got to within 10 pounds of my goal weight he would buy me $500 worth of new clothes. I think it was an easy promise to make, no one ever thought I could actually do it. I never thought I could ... Read more
funny answer to a common question...
A coworker asked me today what my goal weight was. Without hesitation I said "I want to weigh what my driver's license says I weigh". Needless to say this invoked lots of laughing and "oh my gosh that's so funny". I never mind telling people ... Read more

Me, throw in the towel? Not a chance
Seven months ago I would have thrown in the towel. I would have said to heck with it, it's not worth it. Now I know better. I had a bad bad night last night. I won't blame my husband though that would be easy to do. Yes, he bought all the j... Read more
Who are you?...tragedy
Okay, so we all have our tragedies. And all families handle tragedies differently. Mine tends to lean towards freaking out then laughing hysterically. This will usually go on throughout the entire tragedy. A comic tragedy if you will. Must ... Read more
Ehh...it could always be worse...
The cherry sours (see previous post) actually didn't do too much harm, I was pleased about that. Today I felt really good, really in control, all day long. Until of course I went to KFC. I have a standard meal that I get when I go there, I kn... Read more
I dropped the...
...cherry sours? Yep, right into my mouth. Over and over and over again. Had some bad news when I got home from work and the babysitter made me mad (and as he is my father it makes things tricky) and I chewed him out. Then proceeded to chew ... Read more
Pretty panties pretty panties...
...now it's time for pretty panties. First let me say loud and proud "OUT WITH THE GRANNY PANTIES". Okay, with that off my chest I'll get on with it. There are certain moments in your "weight loss crusade" that really make you proud. I had a... Read more
