I'm frustrated by my body type. I'm an apple shape. My bust and waist measurements are about the same. My hips are several inches smaller than my waist. When I lose weight, I tend to lose it from my hips first -- just where I don't need to l... Read more

I bought a copy of The Spark recently and started reading it this week. I'm not too far along yet, only finished chapter 2, but so far, I quite like the book. One of the reasons I like it is that to start out with, it's not all about weight lo... Read more

This morning I decided to embrace BOGUSANNIE's weekly challenge and change up my Sparkpage. The background image is one I took on a hike in Phoenix a couple of years ago. That hike kicked my butt -- it was about 45 degrees celcius, and even th... Read more
