If At First...
Well, that time sure went fast! Not sure where the summer went, but here it is already October! Hard to believe I've been a member of SparkPeople for over 7 years! I joined back in 2010. I haven't had the success I would like, but the only p... Read more
My Own Worst Enemy...
Ah, summer! (Well, ALMOST summer!) 100+ degree days are quickly approaching. UGH!

Weighed at Weight Watchers this morning. Since I started back 6 weeks ago, I've lost a total of 8 pounds! I'd like to lose more, but I had gained some last week so I just basically lost what I had gained last week plus another 0.2 pounds. My ... Read more

Ah, April! Spring has sprung and stirred up my allergies more than they already were! That's fine with me! We got away with very little snow this winter here in the middle of Kansas! When I was a child, I would have lamented that fact, now I... Read more
