Being chosen as a featured motivator earlier this week was really cool and yet I don't feel I've done that much... just kind of decided on my course and followed it until I was done. It was hard some days but overall, it was what it was. In so... Read more

If you are a Douglas Adams fan (author of The Hitchhiker's Guide Trilogy), you will get the reference there... I'm certainly not saying So Long like the dolphins did, though. I have been active on SparkPeople for a year as of Saturday, even tho... Read more

Well, I have discovered my inner beach bum... well a healthy one anyway! The trip to San Diego was fantabulous and not nearly long enough... but well, we still made the most of our short time there. All flights & car travel went smoothly, ... Read more

It's very weird, I have been in maintenance for 6 1/2 months now and am just realizing that I must have had my mother's birdlike metabolism (very fast, that is) buried under all that fat all those years. She was always tiny and moved around wit... Read more

It's been a few weeks since my last entry, mainly because I have been sick, exhausted or in San Antonio TX for my Army Physical.... I may finally have gotten a little bit caught up on least I hope so. Miss M brought home either a... Read more

I am proving right now that when I feel bad, I DON'T eat. We have a family crisis going on right now... a crisis that makes me question our parenting... and leaves me not knowing what to do. I went from bursting with pride in my daughter to qu... Read more
