I like order. So tracking food and exercise is one of my favorite parts of sparkpeople. However, the data base of foods has a lot. Does everyone add there own item or do you choose one already available that closely matches your item? And how cl... Read more

I am so diappointed with my marriage. You think you know someone and unexpectedly you find yourself married to someone you don't know. Awaiting my husband's assault trial feels like life has stopped. It feels like looking over a cliff and findin... Read more

It's been an interesting week. I've gone completely gluten free, something I have up to this point not been able to do for more than 3 days at a time. I have cut down on sugar and cut out caffine all together. I also still have a couple of can o... Read more

Tuesday, January 22, 2013      1 comments

When I decided to take a break from daily sparking back in November, I was not thinking it would cost me 15lbs and a whole lot of acne and mouth sores. I had intended to start back up with daily tracking and article reading and logging my activi... Read more

I am making hedge way on the plateau. I've been looking at all the different areas that I am struggling with and finding ways to work through it. There are no sure answers to any of the hang ups anyone runs into while losing excess weight. But I... Read more
First Plateau

It has been a crazy couple of weeks. I try to keep the sleepless nights in perspective, but after a while it gets tough. Having three toddlers adds to the insomia as someone is always awake and needing something. Sometimes it seems like tripplet... Read more
My Habit, My Vice
Thursday, October 18, 2012      3 comments

At what point do I admit that I might have a habit problem. Certain things are easy to say no to and others, not so much. A bag of oreos, not so hard. Starbucks frappuchinno, not easy. I wish I could just shut down all the fast food. Or at least... Read more
Every Small Success
Monday, October 15, 2012      0 comments

There are days when I really got to put the voice in my head in check. Other days don't seem to be such a problem. I'm still reading Dr. Phil's the Weight Solution, and I am getting so much out of the self talk training. I never even realized h... Read more
