Am I Willing To Work Harder to Get Off of This Plateau?
I don't think so. Honestly, I have lost 32-34 lbs the first 6 months of this 1.5 year lifestyle change. And I've stayed there no matter what I've changed with exercise or calorie intake. My body is fighting me and does not want to release any... Read more

My Stick Out of Quicksand - An Ode to Sparkfriends' Support

Harry weighs 10 Lbs. I've Lost 3.5 Harries!
Last week, when my little baby Harry went to the vet for his eye infection, he was weighed. He's a hefty 10 lbs. (William, his brother, is a feather by contrast. He must weigh 4, if that.)
When I hold Harry, I get tired. Then I remember... Read more
