I miss Sparkpeople!
Back in March there was so much going on in my life that I was totally overwhelmed and I think that life came crashing down on me. Things are not ideal for me at this time either, but there is so much less stress than there was a few months ago... Read more

No more Mountain Dew
It has been very difficult for me, but I have given up my Mountain Dew. I sometimes jokingly say that I am addicted to Mountain Dew, but I really am not. I do love the flavor but mostly I drank it because it always takes the edge off my chroni... Read more
