  • Week 25 Post VSG Update

    4/26/2016 1:29:20 PM, by CALLIKIA

    Howdy! I know it's been a little while. Please forgive me - life has been active and busy and crazy! They've got me traveling all over the state this month and I haven't had much time to do much of anything...but I'm still on track and doing well with my health and fitness, so that's good! In fa...

  • When food shuts up

    4/22/2016 6:39:24 AM, by ANNIEONLI

    PJH2028 "so.... magic balance of paying attention and NOT making food the center of my focus. Activities... opening up to more.... delicate as a butterfly wing ... flapping... " That is a status quote from my Sparkfriend this morning and it resonated with me because it is very on point. A ... Read more

  • Binge Busting

    4/17/2016 2:16:21 PM, by KITHKINCAID

    Things have been going well for a few weeks now. I have found a bit of a groove with cooking meals, and exercising and have posted losses on the scale. Until this past week. Despite my best efforts, I've been hungry all week, have eaten well over my calorie range every day, only exercised once an... Read more

  • Reach out & speak up!

    4/12/2016 6:25:07 AM, by ANNIEONLI

    I'm guilty of not reaching out when I need it the most....that's why I have a little blurb on my page telling people to do so when they need to. And I really love it when people actually do....and what I say actually works for them! There is no secret to what I tell people....in fact, it's... Read more

  • A guilt-free night out

    4/10/2016 7:11:10 AM, by ANNIEONLI

    I went out with friends last night to a Whiskey and Wine bar...the kind that has the small plate menu. I've been there before, and it was OK....and with these places, the food is always rich and high in calories...and you can EASILY over eat with the meat & cheese board and the gooey mac & chee...

  • Day 1,435,281

    4/9/2016 7:29:27 AM, by ANNIEONLI

    Ok....it's not really that day because I'm not 3932 years old...but it is a little tongue in cheek on how some people title things...because let's face it, to find something in your writing when you search for "that moment" when only doing a day count without much else in it, makes that search next ...

  • Sparkgoodies - we need a new one: WINE

    4/7/2016 6:35:04 AM, by ANNIEONLI

    I've found that I use the same Sparkgoodies over and over again when I give them out. I'd even say I can list them right now: - smiley face - rainbow - flame - coffee (use that one a lot) - hug - mediation - candle - megaphone - flowers - confetti Yeah....those are m... Read more

  • April 2016

    4/4/2016 2:35:45 PM, by WOLFKITTY

    "April showers brings May flowers..." I've always loved that saying, and for me, April has historically been a month of dramatic change. It's in that spirit that I started tracking my food again today. And over the weekend I stated aloud my intention to reach 250 lbs by the end of the year. I ... Read more

  • Spring cleaning

    4/3/2016 8:11:36 PM, by ANNIEONLI

    I have to thank everyone who reached out to me on my last blog and on my page....it really does mean the world to me that you are always here to support, even though I forget to reach out when I need it the most. Some comments really brought tears to my eyes along with a smile to my face....so than... Read more

  • The disappearing act

    4/2/2016 7:04:53 AM, by ANNIEONLI

    I openly admit that I go and do a Spark-disappearing act from time to time....and it's usually when things are derailing in some way, shape or form. This time, the derailing factor was me. It's not that I've been too busy to get on here....at night I have plenty of time to play Spark-cat... Read more

  • What Next?

    4/1/2016 12:30:00 PM, by KITHKINCAID

    It's been a while since I was able to answer the question "What makes me feel good?" I find when I can't answer that question, it's because the only answer I have is food. It's a sad state of affairs when I can't come up with one other thing in my life that doesn't feel like an effort or "work.... Read more
