When the world says, "Give up," Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."
Hope is a beautiful and amazing thing; perhaps the most powerful emotion (besides love) that there is.
No matter where you are this morning, HOPE. No matter what you've done in the past day, week, month, year - HOPE. No matter how much ... Read more
"Knowing Is Not Enough, We Must Apply"
We have a whiteboard in our office where people are supposed to sign in and out. One day I drew a funny cartoon on there so that people would come into the office and have a smile to start their day. They loved it! They told their friends and... Read more
Overwhelmed with the Love of My Friends
You guys are great... don't know how I can ever thank you. It's always scary to post a blog that others may find as "TMI" or that reveals those deep-down vulnerabilities; but I also think (at least for me) that it's necessary sometimes. Beside... Read more
I Can't Kill IT Until I Expose IT (Caution: RAW Reflection Inside)
We have all heard the condemnation about "fat people." You're fat because you have no self control - you're fat because you're a pig - you're fat because you're lazy - you're fat because of genetics (which REALLY sucks because it sounds like th... Read more
Healthy Living Just Makes Sense!
So this morning I had a check up with the doctor. I was so excited about hopping on the scale - what a feeling that was! The doctor couldn't believe how much I had lost. I, of course, went on and on about Sparkpeople and told her to recommend... Read more
Thanks to All My Spark Friends!
In case I haven't told you all lately, I could NOT do this without your ongoing support and encouragement. There are so many FAITHFUL FRIENDS who, without fail, read my blog and always have wonderful, positive comments. I really believe that s... Read more
Back to the Basics!
Okay, so I didn't do too bad while I was on the road. Did my exercise everyday, logged my food... but I can TOTALLY see some bad habits coming back. To the point where yesterday I did the whole "cheat" day. I DON'T DO CHEAT DAYS!
So to... Read more
On The Road Again...
Headed out of town today. Will be involved in social worker training Wednesday through Friday in Monroe, NC (a booming metropolis - NOT). Anyway, I packed my bathing suit AND workout clothes so I can keep up my habits.
Have a new man in... Read more
So Very Blessed...
I haven't blogged in a couple of days - which I DON'T like - because it's one of the things that I think really does keep me accountable! In the past, it would have been because I had a bad time, was hiding, isolating, hiding out while I bemoan... Read more
Habits... I think?
So the past couple of weeks have been really busy. Mostly my fault - so many men, so little time. *snicker* No, seriously, just having too much fun coupled with all my responsibilities has put me where I'm NOT spending as much time on Sparkpe... Read more

50 Things About Me!! (Baaa Baaa)
SEXBOBOMB borrowed this little "getting to know you" quiz from LBFROMBUFAD and LULUBELLE65 borrowed it from her and I am borrowing it from her. Because what could be more interesting than a blog all about me? I'll repeat their words here as well... Read more
The Pinnacle to the Pit...
Yesterday sucked. It still amazes me how I can go from the pinnacle to the pit so quickly. I pretty much isolated and ate - albeit healthy stuff because I don't keep any unhealthy stuff around anymore - but I ate more than I would normally AND... Read more
It's been a really busy, but fun weekend. Went out on Friday with a new guy - a cop -and had a really good time. Just might see that one again! Didn't get home until 2 am, but got up at 6:20 to take my brother treasure-hunting. Found some fu... Read more

For My Brother...
I wouldn't normally be involved in any kind of solicitation activities, but this is not for me. My brother is really worried about how he's going to be able to continue to pay for his chemo co-payments, so I created a Facebook page to help him.... Read more
