Back to Square One
Well, I had lost about 5 lbs before the middle of last week. I was very happy with my progress and was actually feeling better. I had some slip-ups and things spiraled out of control. I'm working on getting back on track now and hope I can do it... Read more
Marching on ahead....
I intended to work on getting my mojo back last week, but I woke up sick on Monday. It kicked my butt, but I'm better now. We signed our 9 mo old up for swim class and I had to get in a swimsuit this past Saturday. Could that experience be where... Read more

In dire need of some support and encouragement :(
Well, I got back on sparkpeople 6 weeks ago and still have not done a thing! I am so disgusted and disappointed with myself. My son will now be 12 wks old this week! Time has just flown by and he's getting bigger by the day. I really want to sta... Read more

I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before but DH and I are unable to have children. We are planning on going through donor sperm IVF soon, but have applied for grants and then, after hearing about those, were going to have to apply for a loan. ... Read more
