It's been a good day so far! We went out to breakfast to see our favorite waitress Felicia. Then we came home and have been trimming bushes and digging up dead ones. Now I can have the landscape service come finish the rest! Now, we're going... Read more

Slow and Steady Wins the Race....?
Well, it has been slow and not really so steady, but after a month of waiting, I finally lost 6 pounds this week! I'm in the 220's for the first time in probably 15 years. I worry, though, because I'm caught in that image issue where no matter... Read more
Back to Blog Basics
I haven't been able to truly blog for awhile because I was having difficulty getting to SparkPeople during the day. Not much has changed since I last made an entry, except that I'm back to a plateau that is very frustrating.

Name in Lights!
I got my name in lights for the BLC9 week 10 challenge! That's very exciting, although I wish our team would pull out one hellacious and amazing weigh-in week this week and we can all celebrate by having the team name up in lights!

As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again (GWTW)
I'm recovering from the flu. And I'm terrified because I haven't worked out for 5 days and probably can't until Thursday. I just am not feeling strong enough yet. Isn't it funny how addicted we become to the workout once we start? I can reme... Read more
