S L O W and STEADY, STEADY and S L O W, That's the Way I Always Go
I started on Christmas...again. It was a slow start, since I got sick and couldn't exercise for a couple weeks. Focusing on diet was a blessing, since I always rely on ridiculous amounts of exercise to lose. I'm too tired to work out that much-a... Read more
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

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
I WILL SUCCESSFULLY NAVIGATE THIS FAMILIAR TERRITORY!

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!
