Hi Spark! It's been so long!
I love the New Year and the reflection it brings :) 2013 was probably the hardest year of my life, but also one of the best. Here's what stands out:
- Early in the year I was very stressed about my paren... Read more
Whew, can it possibly be a new year already! I can't believe I haven't blogged since MAY!
Quick life update:
- Moved to Maryland with my husband!

Wanted to post a positive update since my previous ones were from over a month ago and they were bummers :) Here are some quick life updates:

Hello Spark World!
Last week I felt like I was beginning to regain a "grip" on my eating issues. I started posting at the "Living Binge Free" team again, and I have always found the support and loose structure of the "21 Day" thread to be s... Read more
I have not been following WW :( I have been working out more :) But now I've hurt my back. I'm nervous about not working out (and being way more sedentary than usual) as I heal, so I pledge to follow WW (or count calories in Spark... Read more

Goal Post! Why have I never giggled at that before! Clearly the Superbowl is on my mind (though I'm more excited about the following episode of GLEE).
January wasn't too bad! It's funny how the last quarter I was a total stress-ball, but... Read more
Today is my 12th day on Weight Watchers and I've lost 2 pounds! While I was hoping for a bigger loss at first, 2 pounds is 2 pounds! Plus I've been unable to exercise due to a lingering bad chest cold, so I'm hoping things will improve :)

OK, so I've got my starting weight for the year - 210. This is the highest I've been in about 4.5 years, but I'm not as bummed about it as usual. Just means I'll have a bigger weight-loss number in the end :)
When I've been successful in th... Read more
I usually get very reflective as the year draws to a close, but this year end really snuck up on me! This may sound cheesy, but I believe that your attitude about New Year sets the tone for the year. On 1/1/09, I was THRILLED for what 2009 would... Read more
What a week! Apologies in advance for the pity party post!
In my last "tough time" post, I talked about how I feel like every are of my life was falling apart - my dad had a brain tumor removed, my parents were being nasty to each other, I... Read more
Hi Sparkworld! I'm feeling less awesome about life (well, about my - body) today, but I'm still determined to track my food and treat myself and my body well.

I'm feeling pretty good today, and I'm ready to start making positive changes. Last time I wrote, I was pretty stressed and upset about a lot of things, so here's an update of how things have improved. Things always seem to ... Read more
I've been pretty absent from Spark lately. I feel out of control in every area of my life. Logically I know that I'm doing a decent job juggling my responsibilities and that my like is headed in a positive direction, but sometimes (like last Fri... Read more
