That means we can learn from the successes and mistakes of others.  Right? Isn't that one of the things that makes SparkPeople such a valuable resource?  I'm not the first person to hit a weight loss plateau, try a diet, want to become a runner... Read more

That's right.  They're back.  Hiding.  Waiting to pounce on you when least expected:  when you're hungry, tired, any time your defenses might be weary...  (Or maybe it just feels that way...?)  Those sweet little animae eyes blink earnestly as y... Read more

Mtg yesterday in SC. 2 flight segments to get there, two more to get home. 1. This was the second time in a month that I've had a "prisoner transfer" on one of my flights. I can't think of another time in my travel history when I had a t... Read more

Weight loss is not linear. I know this. It's still not fun to go through. After hanging out at the same weight for what felt like over a week, in the last 2 days, the scale says i've lost 3 lbs. (which is just about as crazy as no loss ... Read more

What do Spas and Hair Salons have in common?
Saturday, January 28, 2012      9 comments

They must buy their robes and button-up capes from the same vendor -- and they are One Size Fits Some... A problem in both locations for me as the "girls" would strain against the snaps in the hair salon and I wouldn't be comfortable until the ... Read more

Woohoo - 500 goodie points at sign-in (best part - "Goodie Spa Day"; worst part - points only count toward goodie total, not toward level points). Sister's first week dieting: she weighed in this week and is down 4 lbs -- I couldn't be hap... Read more
