Wednesday, May 26, 2010      6 comments

I just thought about this after reading a few SP emails and other blogs about rewards people have given themselves for their accomplishments. I started thinking, "I've been on SP almost a year and have lost almost 40 lbs BUT I have not given my... Read more

I was asked this evening by my nearly 15 year old daughter what I wanted for breakfast tomorrow morning (since my kids learned to pour a bowl of cereal with milk and operate the toaster this has been a tradition for both Mother's and Father's da... Read more

Saturday, May 01, 2010      12 comments

I was having a conversation with the hubster on MSN (yes we are dorky that way and rather than actually speaking we IM each other), and I just realized that something "clicked" into place for me when I started my weight loss this time. I ha... Read more
The mirror is my friend??
Saturday, April 24, 2010      6 comments

Who'd have thought that I would actually want to look in the mirror? When I was a teenager I looked in the mirror to do my hair and make sure I looked presentable but never really admired myself in the mirror. I know many of my friends who spe... Read more

A penny for your thoughts
Saturday, April 10, 2010      4 comments

I don't really know why I am writing this but I just wanted to throw it out there and get other opinions on whether I'm being too sensative over this. My main job is to pick customers up from home, work or the shops around town and bring th... Read more

Today I took a personality quiz thing here at SP just to see what it would say. It was the Diet Personality Profiler and I was somewhat surprised by the results because I thought I'd overcome a lot of the discriptions. Here is the link: ... Read more
