Having a hard time.
The past couple of days have been so hard. I've been in the bed sick for the past couple of days and been doing horribly with my eating. You would think that when you are sick you wouldn't want to eat, but not me. It's been so horrible, like t... Read more
I Think I'm Going To Be Sick Now
I woke up energized and ready to roll at 7:00 am this morning so I did T-Tapp, some of The Firm's Cardio Blast, and a 2 mile walk all before church this morning. Great right? Well, that is where the good news ends.

Why can't I be like everyone else??
It is always wonderful to hear about other Spark people enjoying a steady weight loss. You know, they are eating right and exercising and enjoying the benefits of a gradual but rewarding drop on the scale. Why can't I have that? Why can't I b... Read more

Ugh, I hate this!
So I am still sick and the doctor put me out of work until next week. I have the flu, sinusitis, and a terrible ear infection (the NP said it was one of the worst she's ever seen). So I have to take an antibotic and several other medications a... Read more
It's Not All About Me
Although we all have to travel this journey for ourselves, lest we will end up in failure, this process is not all about me.
My family (daughter and husband) are the most important people in the world to me and I want to be around for many ... Read more
Why, why, why is this so hard!!!
I just don't know why my body is being so difficult. I will lose 4-5 pounds just to gain 3-4, and for no reason. I have been so faithful to this plan, obsessively sticking with the program to find the weight loss moving so slowwwwwwwwwwwly. Y... Read more
