The next step for me

Cravings, and Emotions, and left over cake, oh my!
I'm two weeks in, and today is the first really hard craving day I've had. I'm finding it so hard to resist that left over cake I made my hubby for fathers day yesterday. And that is why I'm blogging today. I don't want to overeat... especial... Read more

First Goal: Accountability and Awareness
This is my first blog post in almost a year. I took a break from SP after I found out I was pregnant with my second son. At the beginning of my pregnancy, I was very determined to try to keep doing SP throughout. Obviously not to lose weight,... Read more
My Call Back to Reality
Last Friday was an eye-opener for me. It was the first time I chose to Blog since finding out I was pregnant. By the time I was about 3 months along, my Sparking was sketchy at best. I was inconsistent with logging my food, and my will to wal... Read more

Thank goodness for this week's little blessings
I don't think it was one thing alone, but likely a combination of things, but this week, I've felt more like myself in a very long time. It's the first week in I don't know how long, that I've been staying within my calorie range CONSISTENTLY, ... Read more

Trying to be satisfied with less than 2000 again.
2000 calories... That is what I've been hanging at for awhile now. This surpasses my goal by about 350 calories. I can tell you there was a time for much of last year, where staying within my caloric goals was dare I say "easy". I was motiva... Read more
Why is convincing myself to exercise hard, when I feel so great afterwards?
Ever ask yourself this question? Why is it so hard to motivate myself to just get up and move my butt, when I feel so great after I've worked out? I just got off the treadmill, and I feel great! My mood is light, I feel happy, I feel cleansed... Read more
