2017 update. Spark Friends I miss you terribly. I never quite understood how people couldn't find the time to update their Sparkpages, food logs, etc when I was so active on SP, but now that it's been YEARS that I've been off, I find myself relating so much to this. Please join me on MyFitnessPal if you're on there (username = kristonibologna)... Right now that's about all I can muster, but I'm hoping to find more BALANCE this year.
Written January 2009 -- Ever since I can remember, I've never felt like the skinny girl. Even when I was nearly 100 lbs skinnier in high school, I felt like a cow compared to my thin friends. After gaining some weight towards the end of high school, I felt even worse. I lost about 15 lbs on weight watchers before I went to college, but when I met my beautiful and thin college roommate (who is still one of my best friends) over six years ago, it was what you might call another ego-crushing moment!

Why is it that people always need to compare themselves to others? I suppose it is only human nature. In six years I have gained ~60 lbs and a lot more neuroses, but in some ways I couldn't be happier. I have a wonderful boyfriend, I live in one of the coolest cities in the world and I am alive! I joined this site to try to help myself change myself... not so I can look like a Hollywood celebrity, or even look like my best friend. From now on I am only going to compare myself to myself. Setting tangible, realistic goals, and only hoping to become a better me. Not a better somebody else.

    oh yea and I think Matt's making a sparkpage! he really doesnt have much of anything to lose but he wants to track his food anyway to see how many carbs and how much protein he's really getting.

    yeah i didnt weigh myself for a couple weeks there a while back because i was afraid of the same thing. then i looked at this girl's page who weighs herself every day (she's doing Atkins and losing FAST) and I decided I must, even if its not what I want to see.

    My scale shows some seriously weight fluctuations from time to time. Like some days I'll suddenly be 2lbs heavier, but then the next day its normal again. I'm going to buy a tape measure to start logging in my measurements too, because I think that it'll be way more exciting to see an inch go than to see 1lb go.

    hahahaha big poop! I didnt lose any at all this week. I'm changing it up and trying to eat every 3 hours, so we'll see how that goes and hopefully I'll see results next week.
