So I had some disheartening news this week when I stepped on the scale (casually - I haven't been *doing* anything about the scale). It read 180. If you look over at my starting weight, you will see that at this number, I am only 15 lbs away fro... Read more
Wednesday the kids and I go back to school. My classes also start up tomorrow.
I have really enjoyed my three weeks off, but admit it will feel good to get back to a regular routine. I can follow routines. Without them, I get bored and ten... Read more
I imagine that Sparkpeople will start seeing an influx of members; after all,it is the new year. That's when I signed up with MOMMY2ANGELS in 2007. Here is it two years later and I have yet to reach my goal. I can get discouraged - if I had bee... Read more
Tonight, my husband's family came to go trick or treating with us. We had an absolute blast walking around town. The kids didn't score too much candy and after sharing with Mommy and Daddy, have eaten it all.
Tomorrow, however, marks the st... Read more

Last year, I set my goals at 10% of my body weight. I made it to one goal and almost to the second (I was just two pounds away!). This year, I have decided to set up 10 lb goals.
This morning, as I was entering my official weigh in (2 1/2... Read more
It really is amazing how far I've come. I lost a total of 30 lbs in 2007 and I have another 30 to lose in 2008. I know that I can do it because I've already done it.
I think my journey this year will be different than last year. I hope i... Read more
I updated my profile picture. I took the picture (well, my son took the picture) today (don't you just love GA weather?)
Just a couple more weeks and my journey will reach it's year anniversary.
I'm not to my original goal yet, but I ... Read more
I finally get a moment or two to come online and what do I see in my inbox:
There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.
Whew! That's a powerful message right there -- and happens to be very true.

I've been 'eating like a child' for a couple of weeks now and am very happy (and surprised!) with my results. I haven't logged any food but have instead relied on what I felt, hunger wise (it is important to note that I did not eat out of frust... Read more
