Thank you all for your advice on breaking out of my plateau. I have really been soaking it up because there was so much good stuff and information provided. SARAL72 suggested that I recalculate my Basal Metabolic Rate which was a great idea. ... Read more

I'm coming to my trusted experts, MY SPARKIES, for advice. I know most of you have experienced plateaus and if you haven't, you will. I weighed-in and measured yesterday and didn't lose any weight, went up a couple of inches in some places and... Read more

That's a hard fact to swallow, but it is in fact, a fact. When I purchased my BodyBugg, I had to create a program based on my weight loss goals. The bugg told me that as long as I lost two pounds each and every week, I would be at my goal of 1... Read more

Where should I start? How much the race sucked or how much the weigh-in sucked. The truth is neither really sucked, they just didn't go as I planned and since i am a perfectionist, it throws me off my game a little, but I am suprisingly cool w... Read more
