    Today's SparkCoach lesson is to go back and re-read my earlier blogs. I went back to the very first one. Wow. I was so motivated and had such great results. I think re-reading my previous successful blogs can help a person to learn some new things about this journey. I also learned some of the ... Read more

  • Stay Focused, Move Ahead and Don't Look Back!

    When I first married I weighed 98 pounds. I uprooted and moved to Illinois to live on base with my husband. I didn't know how to cook, but I could read a cookbook and I could clean a house with ease. I really had no skills as far as working goes other than typing and because I didn't quite know m...

    Well, it has been 15 days since I started this new journey. I believe I'm getting the hang of it. I have shed 10 pounds now. I am continually learning about this new way of eating.

  • Sugar Journey - WooHoo!!

    I have wonderful news about this NO SUGAR adventure. Yes, it's an adventure because you just never know when or what may trigger your want for sugar. A person needs a Plan B to utilize, just in case. However, I am totally amazed that I have minimal to none. Prior to this journey I ... Read more

  • Read the Labels to see what you are eating.

    10/4/2017 10:02:30 AM, by NOLAHORSERIDER

    Well, let me tell you this... I am doing well without sugar. I never thought I'd be able to say those words. I read every label now...not just calories (I only peruse those now). I look at the carbs and dietary fiber content as I deduct the Fiber from the Carbs for my Net Carbs. I also look down... Read more

  • Another day in NO SUGAR Land.

    Today marks my fifth day without sugar. Thank You God. I survived! The shakes are less now I don't really crave sugar. As a result of my new lifestyle, I am much more vigilant in reading the labels. It's mind boggling how much hidden "junk" is in foods these days. If they decrease the sodium, i... Read more

I haven't had one hunger pang either.... Read more
