My friends...will you join me?
My sparkbuddy MikeAZ just came back to Sparkpeople after a little break. He shared that it's the magic of SP and the encouragement that is plentiful that will help him travel towards his goals. I challenged him that I will use the nutrition tr... Read more
Need a kick in the ...
frustrated, mad, and bored. Every week I look at my actions and the scale (and tight pants/tops) and the anger continues to rise. I have my goals posted around the house, pack my food, go to the gym and the results are the same: no change in i... Read more
