Weigh In & Road Trip!
Overall I was happy with my weigh in. I mentioned before I need to stop the daily weighing, which is true, I still do. But more days than not I would weigh in... what frustrated me was seeing smaller numbers until weigh in day, then the day that... Read more
I saw these pictures of myself from May 15, 2015... and I couldn't help but notice how much slimmer, healthier and just all around BETTER I looked. I thought surely I must have been in the 180's to look so awesome. The lowest I ever saw on the s... Read more
Blogging, Pot Luck & Weigh In
So I have to say my blogging has completely changed over the course of 2016. I really do miss the days of trying to write REAL stuff, that other people could relate to, and things that I was learning about myself and my journey. When I started i... Read more
I know a lot of people were reading my status update and feeling bad for me. It doesn't sound good, but I am actually ecstatic. The bridesmaid dress was always too tight around my rolls... the problem is I have no boobs. If I would have went up ... Read more
Vacay Over + Long Term Goals
I am going to try to make this short and sweet (which never happens LOL)! I had a blast in Minnesota. My two Spark BFF's are the best! The thing that I hate is because my schedule at home is working 5pm to 5am with sleeping from 6am to like 2-3 ... Read more
Ready 4 Minnesota & Luke! + Mini Goal
It is almost time! Wednesday morning I leave to see my two MInnesota BFF's and on Friday we go see my love Luke Bryan at the brand new US Bank Stadium! I have been to 4 Luke concerts, but never one at a stadium and never one with such awesome la... Read more
That Awkward Moment...
That awkward moment when you feel like you SHOULD update but you don't want to relive the horror that has been your life the last few days!
I sure don't want to go through it all again, because it makes my blood pressure rise, and I am fina... Read more
Fed Up VS. Ready
This concept didn't come from me, but boy has it really hit home! I learn so much from my friend Lynn, and sometimes she even shares what other friends have shared with her. This concept came from her friend which she shared with me, and I could... Read more
The Results Are In....
For those not in the know, during this round of Biggest Loser, I had an idea for a side bet between my two Minnesota BFF's and I. The two losers would have to buy the winner a Luke Bryan Shirt at the concert in August. Michelle who doesn't reall... Read more

Bridesmaids Dresses & Fun With Spark Friends...
Let's start with the fun one and then we can end with the not so fun. So the fun, I love watching Dawn's (DAWNSUCCESS) vlogs. I used to tease her that if she made a 20 minute vlog I could easily watch it, and I have. She is just so up beat and I... Read more
FINALLY, THAT IS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!
Not that long ago I said I was bothered by some of the very fun but pointless blogs Spark chooses to feature in the Spark Mail. I think I was partially misunderstood, but the incessant morning cups of solitude, the dogs ;) (seriously, winky face... Read more
Empty Promises & Ramblings
It's funny how such a tiny, sweet, perfectly timed comment can make your day. Today I had not one, but two very sweet comments from two of my favorite Sparkers! (Deb & Bess I'm talking about you!) I was going to write them back, but then I thoug... Read more
STEPH-KNEE UNCENSORED: VOL 6 - It Just Got Real

Doctors & Haircuts & Weight Gain (Oh My)
Yes, I totally sang the title in my head like Lions and Tigers and Bears, OH MY!
So let's see, I changed doctors, I did not at all care for the first 2 (long stories) and thought maybe 3rd times a charm. My biggest pet peeve is when I go in... Read more
