Sunday, May 15, 2011      19 comments

I sucked this weekend. Seriously, I was all over the place. I've been extremely emotional lately and yesterday was a "last straw" kind of day. I feel sorry for the kids and Hubs, who are trying so hard to forgive me for every mood swing but, ... Read more

Learning about Food

Friday, May 06, 2011      6 comments

I spent yesterday learning about food. Yes, that sounds strange coming from someone who has lost over 90 pounds in a year, but it's true. You see, way back when, I was eating pretty much the same thing every day. I knew if I followed ... Read more

In Pieces...

Thursday, April 28, 2011      13 comments

Last night I did something REALLY, REALLY stupid. I asked the Hubs to take me to the Chinese place for dinner. STUPID STUPID STUPID!! I figured I could handle it. See that, friends? I got too sure of myself. Plus, I've learned that you can... Read more

Chobani, I Miss You!!! *tear*

Wednesday, April 27, 2011      15 comments

So, yes...I forgot my yogurt today, which is making me extremely sad. I know that might sound silly to some people, but my Sparkies know what a good snack is like. We rely upon it. We trust in it. We don't have to think about how many calori... Read more

Friday, April 22, 2011      16 comments

It's something I never mentioned in my Spark blog about what I learned last year with SP, because I guess I was learning it at the time. Asking for help. Sometimes it's necessary to break down and scream and call in reinforcements. I kept say... Read more

Tuesday, April 19, 2011      5 comments

I will not abandon another goal I set for myself. I said 12 days of reflections and I will do them. I'm in a better place already after doing days 1-3, but I'm still needing some work, as my anger last night at the gym and subsequent eating ma... Read more
