    6/28/2016 4:00:27 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    My lowest Spark weight was 145 lbs. I managed to maintain it for, um like, 2 months and naturally was around 147-150... before the spiral out of control that put me back into the 180's from which I am currently recovering. This journey has been so much easier I almost feel guilty about it. That i... Read more

    I had the best weekend. I got both the things done I'd been wanting to do. I removed some clutter and its amazing how much stress is relieved by the removal of clutter. I enjoyed getting up and seeing clean space. I had dinner on my patio with the twinkle lights surrounded by newly planted flowe... Read more

  • What's Next?

    6/14/2016 5:14:46 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2
