back from vacation & fatter than ever!
Wow! I didn't realize a person could gain so much weight on vacation. It doesn't help when you are kind of forced to eat out every night for two weeks. Even if you make good choices sometimes, the food at a restaurant is not prepared the way ... Read more

I'm going to my second weigh-in at WW tomorrow. I feel like I'm doing well, but I think my scale at home is conspiring against me. Hopefully he didn't throw in with the WW scale. I was able to fit into a work outfit that I haven't worn in a f... Read more
back to life
Well, the initial shock of the past few weeks is starting to wear off. Thanks to all my spark friends who commented to me or sent me well wishes in a spark mail. Now it is time to try and focus back on life. My mom was very overweight and did... Read more
It's just not fair...
Why is life so cruel sometimes? Why does tragedy come in waves like high tide, one right on top of the other? I ask these questions as I sit here thinking about the loses my family has just suffered over this holiday season.
On Christmas... Read more

We wanted to go pumpkin picking today, but we will h... Read more

Ok, why is it that you can do so well for a long string of days, and then one bump and BOOM, straight to mickey D's. Which by the way I am convinced is lacing the food with addicting meat juice! GRRR! I am so mad at myself for giving in again... Read more
