A Good Place
My last post was nearly 2 years ago to the day! I've spent the last 2 years living my life, the result of which is 18 pounds...because that life included quite a few doughnuts.
But that's ok! I'm still more than 50 pounds less than my 200... Read more
Here goes nothin (pics)
I have been trying and failing to rein in my appetite this week. I have been slowly falling down my slippery slope. There are many reasons (....excuses....) for my bad choices: my husband got hurt at work, then got sick, school is getting tough,... Read more
I just got back from my soccer game, where I scored my first goal!! I'm so happy! It's really the pinnacle of all my hard work. I push myself at the gym all week, just so I can keep up with all of the girls on my team. But now I do more than jus... Read more
A New Game Plan
I'm ready for a change. My sparklife has been going very well since February. I've been tracking every single day since then, except when I go out of town. I've also been loyally tracking all of my fitness minutes, spinning my wheel, doing quizz... Read more
BLOG (a quickie but a goodie)
I only have a minute before my next class, but I just wanted to share a success with everyone really quickly!
1. I just got back from the gym, where I ran a track mile in 9:30! Crazy. No side aches or cramps either. I '... Read more
A Tasty Vacation
I'm back from my anniversary trip! We stayed at a bed and breakfast in the country, and we had a lovely time. I won't spend a lot of time describing all of the things I ate, I'll just say that I didn't track, and I would probably be pretty horri... Read more
Now and Later
It's kind of been an odd week so far. I played soccer with a wicked bad cold, and it turned out to be kind of a bad idea. I took a couple of falls during the game, and I was more sore than I've ever been after a game. I have a couple of little p... Read more
Updates and Foods I love
School is keeping me very busy, as always, so I haven't been keeping up with my spark buddies. Things have evened out a bit school wise, and this week has been much better then the last. My group comm class partners have listened to reason about... Read more
I've focused heavily on my anger issues this week. Instead of dwelling on why the world is getting me down, I've thought about what in my life is going right. And there's so much going right! Here are a few of my favorite things this week :)

I try not to make negative posts, but I just have to get this out before I expload!
My classes this quarter are all below my level, and I'm constantly having to wait for other people to catch up to me. These are all required classes, so I d... Read more
My Beloved Before Photos
These are pictures of me at my heaviest, and they were all taken on the best day of my life. Even though I'm about 55 pounds lighter now, I won't let my old weight stop me from loving every picture of my wedding.

The Choices of Others
It's amazing how the eating choices of others affect me. Today, while sitting in my oh so long group communications class, I couldn't help but look around and see what my peers were eating.
The boy across from me walked in with a large jamb... Read more
A Perfectly Positive Post
I believe the key to a lifelong lifestyle change is a positive outlook. It's easy to be guilty about slip ups, or to get yourself down about a missed gym visit or two. Guilt is a useless emotion when it comes to weight loss. It only leads to a ... Read more
Struggles and Sidestepping
I started school again this week, which brought on a new set of struggles. I've had to adapt to a whole new schedule, so I've changed my eating habits quite a bit. I've been packing bars and fruit to eat while I'm in school, and I've been stayin... Read more

Spring Break Wrap Up
I start school tomorrow, after almost three weeks of spring break. I used to use breaks as an excuse to overeat. I would accept every offer to go out, and always order without restraint. Nighttime sweets were abundant, and I ate whole packages o... Read more
