I'm so sorry it's been so long since I've written a blog on here. I write in my Open Diary a few times a week, but I usually save my blogs on Spark for more meaningful entries. So for those of you that have been asking about me, I'm doing pretty... Read more

In December 2009, I wrote a list of 30 goals to accomplish by the time I turn 30 years old (my 30x30 list, which I refer to often). Feeling ambitious, I included "Enter a 5k race and RUN it" as one of the goals on my list. At that point, I had n... Read more

Saturday, September 25, 2010      409 comments

I think for many (maybe most) of us here on Sparkpeople, this is not our first weight loss attempt. I know that I have tried to lose weight dozens, maybe even hundreds, of times. A few times, I was even successful--losing as much as 60 pounds. ... Read more

I've been getting probably 1-2 private messages every day asking me if I have issues with excess skin now that I've lost over 100 pounds. Some of these messages are very tactful, and I'm more than happy to answer them. However, a few of them hav... Read more

I really don't want to write much about this, because I honestly hated every second of it. Everyone in my group had SO MUCH FUN, and I feel like a total Debbie Downer for even saying that I hated it, but it's the truth. I felt HORRIBLE about my... Read more
