I'm feeling a bit torn about abandoning this page and all the years it was a part of me, but I'm feeling the need to start fresh with Soark so I got a new account yesterday. My new username is missy_magootwo. I haven't been around for over a yea... Read more
My scale still hasn't caught on to the fact that I'm shrinking. Again it's been weeks since I've lost a single pound. I seem to be playing my own little game of the slowest loser. I'll admit I haven't been here much, and my eating habits haven't... Read more
Last week I did great! Ate well, exercised like crazy, only lost a half pound, but I measured and last month I lost five inches of my waist!!! How does that even happen with only a half pound lost in the last six weeks? Must be building muscle? ... Read more
I saw this on the I *censored* Love Science Facebook page and thought it was super interesting. It's a body scan of a 250 pound woman vs. one of a 120 pound woman. Just looking at how the hip and ankle bones sit really blew my mind! Anyways- tho... Read more

Okay, so since Owen was born I couldn't real... Read more
In the month of August I lost exactly 0 pounds. I did mostly good with food, I'd say I had about 25 good days out of 31, not too bad for my first month getting serious here again. What I did better then expected with was getting back into runnin... Read more
Confession- I get jealous when people I know lose weight. Not here on Spark- but out in real life. It's not a good quality. I don't consider myself a jealous person. I don't ever feel it when it comes to possessions and such, seems I only feel i... Read more

Today was a great Sunday.
After getting Owen and fed a dressed this morning I headed out for a walk/jog. I never know how far I'll get to go before Owen starts fussing n the stroller, sometimes it's 15 minutes, sometimes an hour. Today was pre... Read more
Today I'm really proud of how well I did, again despite being a really really hard day to stay on track.
I'll get to today but I kinda feel like first I need to address something. I debated whether or not to say anything, but in the end it's m... Read more
Today was a bit harder. I was just busy busy busy all day- which means no time for cooking. So today was a you gotta do what you gotta do, eat the best you can in the situation, not perfect but close enough day.
A few years ago I found myself struggling to track and to be honest with my tracking and here I am back in that same place again... what worked last time was doing a week of taking a photo and blogging everything I ate.
why it worked-

I'm back after both my kid's birthdays and our family vacation! I didn't lose anything (actually gained a pound back) but I'm still in Onderland so I've chosen not to stress that pound, after two birthday cakes in one week and all the delicious ... Read more
