I'm pretty discouraged. I just read my May post and I could just cut and past it and post it today. Still gaining. My back is bothering me again. I've adjusted my weight loss goal to be back where I started on 1/1/14. To try to lose the wei... Read more

Week 2 of "fast start"
I'm doing so-so meeting my goals of 8 glasses of water, 10 min. of exercise, and posting something on spark every day. The hardest goal is the water. I can make it to 6 ok, but I run out of hours in the day to get all 8 in. I'm searching spar... Read more

You know, I've never really gotten into giving spark goodies. I always found it hard to find the right one to match the words I wanted to express. But this evening I started scrolling through all the goodies I've received through the years and... Read more
