All that bad girl party food weig... Read more

    1 pound to go and all my bad girl party weight will be gone *whew*! I have logged into Spark for 82 days in a row. Pretty darn good if I do say so myself.

    Is it really considered a weakness in a fat person to want to eat the same kinds of foods that everyone else eats? Isn't it our right to want to share in the celebration and the party and the FOOD without resorting to eating celery sticks while everyone else has cake? Why does eating a peice of ca... Read more

    This morning back to 306, whew! I still have a shot at this. Ya know when I started all of this I didn't so much think about my emotional well being.

    Just a quick quick note on the heels of my previous blog. I am up 2 pounds, oh the joys of water weight. Weight because I ate SALT, that was on CHIPS that I shouldn't have had but IS a weakness for me. Ive drank sugar free lemonade, water and sugar free tea. Lots more going in than coming out. ...

    8/31/2014 10:40:48 AM, by SANDY1969

    Maybe this is wrong of me but I am one of those people that needs a little recognition for a job well done or I just lose the will to even try. I know it's silly but I joined this monthly challenge and the first month went well and I lost and I reported my losses and it was posted. I didn't re... Read more
