I've really worked hard this week, and thought I was "entitled" to eat out of my regular menu today. I was out at a great Mexican restaurant, and even though I didn't overdo it, had more than I bargained for today. I'll have to watch out as I ... Read more
You'll Hear My Scream Far and Wide
Monday morning will not be just any weigh-in day. It'll be a day when I'll go nuts if, after all my very hard work this week, I don't see a loss and downward trend after a very long plateau. If I don't see a loss, every city will reverberate w... Read more

Day 3- I failed at Detoxing from Caffeine. Will have to try again someday soon.
There is no Day 3. I made it to the second day without coffee and felt so sick that I succumbed to a 1/3 of a small mug. Thank you for all of the supportive blogs. I feel like a heel for failing. Like a dependent little addict. But I'll try... Read more
Day 2- No Coffee (and a big ouchie of a headache)
Yesterday was tough. By noon, I was ready to go to sleep. You wouldn't think that the very small amount of coffee I've been drinking would matter that much (1/2 small mug a day). By late afternoon, I hadthe huge headache that accompanies this... Read more
Day 1 - No Coffee

To Go Raw or Not to Go Raw - that is the question!
Okay, I'm in awe over the results some sparkfriends are having with the raw diet. I've begun researching, and have to admit that it's like learning a new language. I've heard of juicers, but never really understood what they do, what they're f... Read more

ME & D3-A Match Made in Heaven
