Any Sparkies with pins/screws/plates in their leg or ankles?
Such a random question, I know. About a month ago, I fell down the stairs at my house (because I am just one of the most clumsy people EVER)... and ended up breaking my leg and my ankle. I had to have surgery and now have a plate with pins on th... Read more
The fat didn't get here on it's own...
so it's not going to leave all on it's own either! Ha ha. I really believe (and sincerely hope) that I am actually getting *it* this time. I've been doing my best to form new eating habits, to find new, healthy foods that I enjoy. I've been doin... Read more
"Is that DIET food?" Ugh, I hate the food police! ;)
Okay, so I absolutely love love love my job, (the job itself). I'm a dispatcher, I love it, I'm good at it, the deputies heart me and I heart them... I take pride in being able to help them with everyday stuff, but more importantly I enjoy being... Read more
Anyone see the new MTV Show "I Used To Be Fat..."
I just watched it's first episode on MTV.com, and while I did enjoy watching the show, the girl on it lost 90 pounds in 111 days. Insanity!! She was doing intense exercise with a trainer everyday. Just thought it was a bit over the top I guess. ... Read more
What I've Learned In 2010...
On the downside, I don't have some incredible weight loss story. No awesome before and after pictures to show all that I've accomplished. But I do feel that I've learned a lot this year, and I am determined to make 2011 my year!

Ups and Downs...
So I know we all go through ups and downs, but it's like I have gone through both in a matter of like 6 days! It's crazy. I wish I could just have one good week, so that I could build my confidence and remind myself that I ACTUALLY know how to d... Read more
Have you ever thought about...
how no one *really* cares whether you lose this weight or not? I know, silly question. I also don't want anyone to think that I genuinely mean that no one cares if we get healthy or not. I know my dad truly worries about my health from time to t... Read more
I'm Too Freakin Fat For This LOL!
I find myself thinking that a lot these days. I get winded SO easily, and I am only 24... It shouldn't be like this. There are two sets of stairs in my house... a set leading up to the bathrooms/bedrooms and a set leading down to the garage. So ... Read more
Need Advice Sparkers: 1200 calories forever?
1200 calories is the lowest end of my calorie range here on spark, and I also totally believe when they say no one should ever be going under 1200 calories. I am perfectly content eating 1200, but my question is, do you think that'll hurt me in ... Read more
Disappointed, accepting it, and moving on.
So as I sit here at a weight of about 260, I could not be more disappointed in myself. Last year around this time I started doing what I needed to, and lost about 22 pounds. I hit a plateu, and hovered around the weight of 250 for a long time. T... Read more
Have you ever had a dream where you were thin?
I have only been having them recently, and they are strange LOL. I have had 3 of them. In each one I am thin (or more like medium) and I am so shocked by what I see... but then I still feel fat. I am sure that is because my mind knows that I am ... Read more
I have spiraled so far out of control, I just feel helpless. So I'm just breaking it down. Step 1 is going to be stop eating fast food (I've been on a fast food kick for almost 2 weeks now, ridiculousness)... or at least cut WAAAAAYYYY back. Ste... Read more
My brother is pretttttyyy sllliiiiick haha!
So basically, when my dad approaches me about my weight issues... I get defensive. The way he goes about it is more like an attack, or him trying to tell me what to do and how to do it, but not in a constructive way.
My brother on the other... Read more

Back To Basics
So I have a super dooper-ly awesome spark friend, she rocks. She's lost 50 pounds and she always listens to me and my nonsense. I am very thankful for her, without her I probably wouldn't even be logging into the site at this point.
I keep ... Read more
