To Sparkcoach or Not to Sparkcoach?
I have enjoyed my free trial with Sparkcoach! I think it's the PERFECT tool for those new to SP. Logging in each day is a little more rewarding and a lot more educational. I like the action steps and visualization! However, by day seven, I am wo... Read more
Maintenance Blogs Helped Me Realize that I Got Greedy!
A few years ago when I reached a healthy weight, after gaining a bunch in grad school, I was happy. I relished in being able to live my life without feeling self-conscious or inferior, because of my weight. I'm not sure if there weren't a bunch ... Read more
I'll Let My New Before Pic Do The Talking
The pic above is one year ago. The pic below is Christmas Day. Wow a picture truly is worth a thousand words, or should I say excuses?
Whose Life is This, Anyway?
It's about time happy days came my way. The last few years have been tough, and the proportion of work to play has been grueling. I hate to complain, because it can always be... Read more

Love at First Lick
I don't know how long this dream-come-true has been in existence, but it is now going to be a staple in my pantry!
Really, don't even question it.
The flavor will please you and so will the fat and calorie counts!
Oooooh Baaaab... Read more
Don't worry. I have not decided to become an elite athlete or a celebrity hottie, but I did go to a trainer and have a fitness assessment. It is part of my 'before' on this, my latest weight loss adventure.

Without going near a scale, I can tell you that I gained every one of the 30 lbs. I had lost.

The Past Two Months have been Too Much
Weird. I feel like I owe you an explanation. Seven weeks ago my MIL passed away. It was a peaceful death and she was surrounded by family and friends, in her home, being cared for by her sons and husband. She died with a beautiful, natural smile... Read more
