Frustrated or Happy?

Thursday, October 07, 2010      3 comments

I don't know whether to be frustrated or happy. A coworker keeps telling me that she can tell I'm losing weight. That's not the same story the scale is telling me. I will be the first to admit that I am obsessed with weighing myself. I weigh mys... Read more

Pedometer Challenge

Saturday, September 25, 2010      2 comments

I realize now how much Sparkpeople helps me out. I had not logged in for a few weeks and my old eating habits began to kick in. My eating slowly but surely increased to an unhealthy diet, I exercised less and less, and became generally more inac... Read more
