Hi there. I'm back after a long hiatus and have even more weight to lose now.

I did personal training last year and it worked great as far as my feeling better. At least until my trainer's schedule changed and I started going on back to back days which was not helpful for me. However it did let me know I can feel better if I stay at this!

Oh one good thing, in the past year I've also managed to pretty much kick the soda habit. I may have one when out to eat if it's a place I am unsure about the options. Or very rarely for a headache at work when nothing else works(ironic how this seems to work). I really hate water so this is a big deal. Mostly I'm drinking lower calorie drinks and some sweet tea or lemonade.

I'm also eating out somewhat less.

I'm back to trying Spark now and hoping I can get myself back on track.

    Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog! It IS a beautiful piece of land, lots of oak trees and coastal grass...........Can't wait to be out there, and actually living on it. Right now, we are still in Glen Rose. Enjoying it, though! Today, we ditchwitched all the lines for the electricity and the water. Whew! emoticon

    Learn something new every day! Never had heard of Oatmeal, TX before! We are moving from Cleburne, which is just south of Fort Worth, to DeLeon, which is just west of Dublin, TX. We love it out there, as the pace of life is going to be much slower, and also, I will be able to ride Peanut for miles on the sandy based county roads! DeLeon is on highway 16, the same highway that goes through Fredericksburg and Kerrville. So, we are more or less straight north of Fredericksburg. emoticon
