Day 13-16th: Understanding Truth
This goes both ways. It didn't go on overnight, either. So, when I admit that Friday was slightly more, and Saturday was WAY over, and today is a mess, I have to forgive ... Read more
Day 12: Feeling Better, Gotta get back to where I was
I've been in a bad place with insomnia, and last night, for the first night in over a week, I got five consecutive hours of sleep and then a couple more interrupted hours ... Read more
Day 11: Hope

Day 10: Disappointment the size of Texas
Insomnia has gripped my life in a way I never thought possible. A week ago, I was thrilled that I took Ambien and slept all night long for the first time in months. However, since then, Ambien hasn't done anything for me. I just get tired an... Read more
Day 9: Insomnia
For the past 8 months, I've suffered from insomnia.

Day 8: What Is Going On Here?

Day 5&6: So Much For Everyday!
Since a week ago, I told myself that I was going to try to blog everyday. I really meant to, but life gets busy and I get tired.
I also told myself that I was going to track my food everyday for two weeks. I'm almost a week in, and I've d... Read more
Days 3 & 4, because some days are just like that
As much as I wanted to blog everyday, yesterday I just couldn't bring myself to do so. I haven't been sleeping well so I only got three hours of sleep the night before last. At work, everything seemed to be chore, so when I got home at 3:45, I... Read more
Day 2, or whatever I decide to do
So, since inspiration is my issue, I've decided to try to post everyday about something/someone that inspired me. That way, even when I've let myself down, I have a positive spin on it (I hope).
I'm suffering from insomnia (a combination... Read more
Day 1E-Or whatever---Inspirations
I've started and stopped so many times. I've read and re-read every eating program that exists. I've taken notes, purchased books and cookbooks. At one time, I considered weight loss surgery.
So, probably E is conservative. It's probab... Read more

So many times I've become enraptured in the drama of others...
Last year I considered weight loss surgery because a colleague of mine lo... Read more
I'm tried of writing "Here I go again..." Here's an update...
I was reading through some of my last blog entry, most of which I deleted. So much has happened since "Before."
If you were to read my last blog entry, you would find that in April, 2014, I was dealing with a torn tendon, a racing heart, a... Read more
Do It Now. Don't WAIT!
I wish that I could tell everyone out there in SparkPeopleLand to get out and exercise and get healthy, while you still can.
This is my umpteenth time at trying to lose weight---probably my third or fourth on SparkPeople.
Right now, ... Read more
