    11/24/2014 1:59:18 PM, by RUGLA-TIGER

    I am not sure what to blog or how to blog. I am pretty overweight. 344.6 pounds right now. Weighed myself for the first time this weekend and was shocked. I know I was overweight but that number is higher than I thought. I've been thinking and half ass trying to lose weight for a little while, ... Read more

  • Monday, Monday; Spark Progress & Tips

    11/24/2014 1:59:09 PM, by IRONBESS

    Not feeling so good at the moment but otherwise it's a beautiful Monday. Let's see, if I tell myself I feel great, will I? It's worked before. I get occasional bouts of atrial fibrillation. When that happens, my throat feels full, my head light, and before the pacemaker I'd crumple. Today it's lasti... Read more
