Just got back from the gym, and I'm feeling pretty good! I used the treadmill for 40 minutes and swam for a half hour. I'm tying to plan specific times each week to go to the gym, but it's difficult. I'm trying to decide if it would be better to... Read more
Another New Start
I was looking at my Spark weight loss goal chart from the past year and realized I am back up to my original starting weight. . . Not good, not good at all. I looked at my "weight loss report" and it was actually hilarious. I've made my own litt... Read more

Completely, Totally, Absolutely Bummed Out
I gained 2 ounces this week. Before you all comment that it's no big deal and body weight fluctuates throughout the month, etc., etc., let me just say I know I know I know I know!
Honestly I did not do great with my food and exercise last ... Read more
I guess it will balance out...
Today I spent hours going to different stores with my mom. I'm pretty exhausted. It was not the best nutrition day (understatement), but I think it will balance out with all the walking I did. For lunch, I had a Jersey Mike's Italian sub (regula... Read more
