In 7.5 weeks I will be 60. I've never been upset about getting older but this time I'm not thrilled. I can't seem to lose the weight I gained after shoulder surgery last year and I'm having ankle surgery at the end of this year. I really, really... Read more

I decided to clean up my Nutrition Tracker Favorites list this morning. Boy did I have a lot of "bad" food in there. Pop tarts, which I haven't eaten in years but evidently ate when I started on Spark People back in 2009. I mainly wanted to grea... Read more
