Today I'm blogging a little bit off the beaten path for me. I'm usually about emotions, Ah Ha Moments, and faith. Today, I'm about dessert and how to have your cake and eat it too - without guilt. What I want to share with you is a little desser... Read more

Last night was the first real "event" I've been to since I got serious and adopted my new "Sparkatude." For those of you who don't know what a Sparkatude is, it's a type of attitude that will enable you to be a winner in the area of weight loss ... Read more

I Wasn't Planning on Blogging Today......

Sunday, June 07, 2015      7 comments

I was looking at some comments on my Spark Page photos of my two little dogs and it hit me - my dogs are wiser than I am. Sometimes I fall into "pity party" mode and think about how hard the journey is and how long it takes. Looking at thes... Read more

Do I Like Myself?

Saturday, May 30, 2015      6 comments

I've been asking myself that a lot over the last couple of days. Looking back at my old blogs, I wonder why I didn't follow through with the things I said I was going to do. It wasn't because I didn't mean what I said when I said it - I think I ... Read more

July 8th will always be a day I remember because today I lost my Pug, Trixie - my friend, my companion and my loyal doggie of 15 years. Sadly, I had to make the decision whether to let her continue with her pain or let her go. Read more

Blessings in Disguise

Thursday, June 27, 2013      4 comments

There's an old saying, "You never miss the water 'til the well runs dry." I can attest to the truth of this because, while I did exercise, I never liked it much, or looked forward to it. Then I fell on my back and, over a period of time, I sta... Read more

For All My Wonderful Spark Friends!

Saturday, November 10, 2012      5 comments

Yesterday, my DH and I experienced a miracle. A nodule that was seen by Pt-scan in my hubby's left lung was to be biopsied to see if it was cancer. That is scary enough but, in this case, DH is a 5 yr. lung cancer survivor. He also had a battle... Read more

I realize I may be opening a big can or worms by writing this blog but, nonetheless, this is "my" thing and it isn't going to be for everyone. Losing weight - just like many other things in life - is not a "one Size Fits All' proposition, and I'... Read more

Overcoming Fear Of Eating Outside My Home

Wednesday, September 05, 2012      1 comments

My husband hates eating out for the most part so unlike a lot of our friends, we eat almost all of our meals at home. That made it a lot easier for me when I came back to Spark People in May of this year. I've always been a slow loser but ... Read more

Time To Take On Meal Planning

Tuesday, August 21, 2012      2 comments

One thing I have never really done is to plan the week's meals in advance - and then stick to the plan! Today's video by Dietician Becky got me thinking about how much easier my life would be if I did plan my week's meals, shopped accordingly, ... Read more
