It's been a while.
That's a good thing, for the first time.
Usually, if I'm gone, it means I've fallen off the wagon and don't want to track, because all I'm eating are cookies or cakes and pies and pizza and chips... you get the point.

I'm trying to do this without logging into spark every day. Not because I don't love spark, but because I need moderation in my life.
Moderation in sweets, in exercise, in my attitude.
It's not all or nothing. But for years, my brain does th... Read more
Last week, I was on vacation and it was wonderful.
I ate pretty healthy, though I didn't keep up with tracking, I was okay with that. I made healthier choices in all that I did, and that was good for me. There will be times that I can't ... Read more
All right. I'm not complaining. I'm honestly sharing to help people see.
2 days (TWO DAYS) ago I posted about how my scale probably moved no more than a pound in a MONTH and I finally broke through to the next blip (tens) on my scale. I ... Read more
The last month has just sucked for me.
Nothing has been wrong, really, it isn't that.
It is the fact that My weight seemed so STAGNANT. The scale barely budged. I might have lost 1/2 a pound a week MAYBE. And I'm not close enough ... Read more
I'm THRILLED it is the weekend, but I'm frustrated.
I would have liked to have been further along in my weight loss. It is coming off, a tenth of a pound at a time, and it is fine, it is just FRUSTRATING me. I'm not quitting, and didn't... Read more
So many things work for me. So many things don't.
Some advice that SP gives (and many members do as well) is to not look at foods as "good" or "bad". This, for me, is easier said than done. SO many things are "bad" in my head. However, ... Read more
I hear the question all the time. How do I get motivated? Where did my motivation go?
Motivation wanes, sometimes quickly, sometimes it lasts, but honestly, it doesn't matter.
You see a picture of yourself you don't like, you feel li... Read more
This weekend I had been looking forward to for MONTHS. I bought tickets for me and friends to see a concert. (It was fantastic) and I couldn't wait until this day.
I knew we would probably eat out, and planned for it. I got a great worko... Read more
I have realized that there is more to healthy eating than just eating good foods.
Yes, it is also eating in the proper portion.
But most importantly, it isn't binge eating.
Now, I'm not saying that people don't binge. I know that... Read more
I posted yesterday how I made it through the sugar centric weekend without issue. And I did. I also posted how I was really feeling the cravings of the sugar beast.
Even as I posted it, I was thinking about getting home, finding some of th... Read more

Why is it so easy to know what you know, but at times, hard to remember and put into practice?
The last 2 or 3 weeks I've been the same weight. It was making me NUTS. I felt like I was never going to drop. I started weighing myself more ... Read more
Having a healthy life is SO much easier when you have someone outside of spark.
I love spark people. It has helped me immeasurably.
I have finally learned though, that being able to complain to my friends makes this easier and knowi... Read more
