Wednesday, September 05, 2012      1 comments

My husband hates eating out for the most part so unlike a lot of our friends, we eat almost all of our meals at home. That made it a lot easier for me when I came back to Spark People in May of this year. I've always been a slow loser but ... Read more

Tuesday, August 21, 2012      2 comments

Well, I don't need them at every meal that is..... What a revelation! All these years I thought you absolutely had to have a starch with every single meal. I come from an Italian-American background, and Italians love to eat, and they eat BIG... Read more

I know how depressing it can be when we can't do the thing we used to, do. I had some bombs fall on me in 2011 and my life was suddenly very different. I had a cancerous breast tumor removed in Jan. 2011. It was very tiny and the prognos... Read more

I came from an Italian-American family who had huge hearts and, unfortunately, huge appetites to match. Growing up with my family was a non-stop food feast and holidays were unbelievable. While most families sit down to a Turkey and the trimmin... Read more

I have been doing things right this time - yes, this is not the first time I've been on SparkPeople but I've never stuck with it for more then a few weeks. I was on again, off again, and I never reached my goal. I think I'm going to make it thi... Read more
