I honestly can't believe it has been 3 and a half years since my last post. WOW the time has flown by and with not much more success than before. I have had many ups and downs in the past 3 years. And that would be ups and downs in weight. W... Read more
I haven't posted since June. I haven't stuck to my healthy eating religiously since December of last year. This whole year has been such a struggle. I just read the last post I wrote in June: www.sparkpeople.com/mypa ge_public_jou... Read more
And I Can't Get Up!!!
I just celebrated my 4th anniversary with Spark. I joined initially I think because the site was free, but I really don’t think I had my heart into taking my weight off at that time, so for two years, I did little wit... Read more
I haven't blogged in over a month. Can't believe it's been that long. I was having a very difficult time for quite awhile, despite the fact I wasn't gaining. I simply had stopped losing and was struggling to maintain. A new bakery opened up ... Read more
I haven't blogged in over a week because I have been so busy. Work has gotten hectic. I feel I have had very little time at home to relax and spend quality time concentrating on me too. But yet, I feel I am getting nothing relevent done. I'm... Read more
I was reading an article this morning that really blew me away. I have always been in love with sugar and know that I eat entirely too much - whether watching my weight or not. But the article this morning really got my gears turning.

The past two months have been more difficult for me than the past six months combined. I began my journey reluctantly in March, but soon delved in with an undefeatable attitude. I had attributed all my success up to that point with having a mo... Read more
Some sparklers asked why I haven't blogged lately. My theory is if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything. My last several blogs have been on the forlorn side and I hate to keep raining on everybody's parade, so I have sustai... Read more
Today is the 23rd of September. Almost one month ago I was one half pound from hitting a 40 lb weight loss. I was thrilled and on top of the world. Today I was hoping to have another 8 to 10 lbs gone, which would have taken me to the 50 lb ma... Read more
I'm a pretty boring person, so there probably isn't too much new & exciting that I can share with my sparkler friends, but here goes:
1. One of my hobbies is doing genealogy. I have done it for over 20 years & have over 11,000 names in it... Read more
Living a healthy lifestyle is a lifetime commitment. I knew it wouldn't always be a piece of cake (no pun intended), but I didn't realize just how much effort would be required to do it successfully.
Everyone starts off with zeal and exc... Read more
My last few blogs have been more of doom and gloom than about motivation and aspiration. I really hate when I fall prey to such attitude. But I guess we can't be on the top of the mountain at every minute of every day, so I really have to lear... Read more
