"I don't care about my weight....I just want to be healthy"
I can't even imagine how many times I've said that in the past. And I meant it...kinda. Because Yeah, who doesn't want to be healthy? But let's be honest, there was a good par... Read more
Great Day Yesterday
Hubby and I had a special date, which is always amazing between our schedules and our toddler. Had Lunch (Salad Bar and a few bites of soup), went to a Movie, then for a frozen yogurt (I kept mine small with healthier toppings). My only "Bad" ... Read more
Now that it's Impossible, I want it so bad...
I broke down and sobbed to my husband last night. I was so miserable with gas and bloating and this incessant lump (the current theory is that it's GERD or LPR).
I knew that I couldn't ask "Why is this happening to me?" I know why. For so... Read more
I realized this morning how much I am like my 3 year old daughter. From the time she was a tiny baby, I often had to "manage" her by showing her that things could be worse. Like if she was fussy because she didn't want to be in her jumparoo, I... Read more
Diet for GERD (LPR) and Insulin Resistance?
So, for my Insulin Resistance, I need to lean on the side of lower carbs. But to help with Acid Reflux (and hopefully get rid of this anxiety causing huge lump in throat once and for all!), you are supposed to be careful with fat.

I wish that I could love Spark again
I want to lose weight. I want to be healthier. I'm a list-writer, chart-maker by nature. I love to talk to other people about whatever my latest obsession is. So, by rights, Spark people and I should be made for each other.

Everything Seems so Damn Difficult
Excuse me if I sound like a whiny baby, but it's been a difficult week for me. It started with lots of pain and eventual infection in a wisdom tooth, during a time when I have to take hormones to bring on my cycle (can you say bitchy?), which i... Read more

I got really sick last week, couldn't keep anything down for a couple days. And when I recovered I was really cautious about eating fatty foods, and the effect that it was having on my body. So I decided to take advantage of my sickness, and t... Read more
Week 1: The Good, The Bad and the Ugly
Goals for the week: Didn't really define any, it was more of a generic goal to ease back into things.
*Lost 3 Pounds. This doesn't really make any logic sense, most likely it was water weight and bulkage left from the H... Read more
Day 2 Revelation....
Thus far, my journey has consisted of writing a blog, downloading the SP app, and posting on a few blogs. It hasn't yet touched my eating or physical exertion (or lack there of). But while striving to do better, I am going to be happy with any... Read more
Getting Started in Spite of Valid Excuses
A few weeks back I went to the Dr. for my yearly checkup. I had a litany of small complaints, for all which she told me to LOSE WEIGHT.
I used to know how to do that. I knew how to eat, I knew how to exercise, I knew how to combat my Insu... Read more

Converting Daily Activities into Exercise
I've spent the past couple weeks thinking about exercise. Looking at my crazy schedule over and over trying to figure out when I can fit in 10 minutes here or 20 minutes there.
The truth is, moments that I have the ability to dedicate so... Read more
