Aha! I See You, Figure, You Can't Hide Anymore!!!
I CAN SEE IT!!!!
This is a huge deal for me. HUGE deal.
Last time I lost a bunch of weight with the help of Spark People I went from 240 lb to 190 lb. I'd say more than enough to shake a stick at, but I couldn't see it. I could hold... Read more

My Brain + Food = Frenemies
I accidentally came under my calories again yesterday.
I was SURE, positive, I was going to be at the top end if not over... and then I'm under.
Clearly my brain and food need to work on their friendship! Or frenemiship... Is that a word?... Read more
That Pole Must be in the Middle of the Highway!!
I work / live / gym very near a small rural highway. As in it runs pretty much immediately behind my work/gym (but down a big hill with trees in between, which is nice) and just a couple miles from my apartment.

How Far Second Should the Rest of My Life Come?

Re-learning from the Same Mistakes (at least one more time)
So while I've been feeling pretty cool about wearing my size 16 jeans, even after drying them all the way in the dryer, I didn't consider the change in size "official" until Sunday. I mean, I've been wearing these jeans even though they were to... Read more
