My challenge with the RV Enthusiasts team is done tomorrow - wow! 6 weeks went quickly. I didn't weigh in last week - I forgot my scales at home when we were out of town - and got a "vacation" week. If I am less than I was two weeks ago, I wi... Read more

I began a challenge with one of my first two Spark teams - RV Enthusiasts - six weeks ago. As of yesterday, I have lost just under 6#. An average of 1# per week seems to be a good fit for me. I'm not starving, I'm not exercising for hours on ... Read more

Back in July, I wrote about the new challenge I was on with members of the RV Enthusiasts and 50+ Females teams. I wrote about how I had been "off track" for WAYYYYYYY too long. I am keeping a note to myself with my smartphone so that... Read more

Monday, May 01, 2017      3 comments

Some years ago I was very successful with Sparkpeople. I lost approximately 90 pounds in about 18 months, but once there, I began to slowly put some of that back on. In fact, on a high weight day [salt is NOT my friend], I have put all but 30 ... Read more

Tomorrow my oldest will turn 30. I really hadn't thought about how it would affect me. I'm remembering things that I haven't thought about in years - I was already at the hospital 30 years ago and was in labor for 24+ hours. I won't go into a... Read more
