First of all, thanks to the previous commenters who helped reassure and support me in my time of utter rambling insanity. My defense is in two days and I'm feeling much better about it (although still totally nervous)...but hey, at least I'... Read more

I feel just a little guilty, but in the last few days I have been eating pretty poorly. Skipping meals sometimes, eating about 1o or 12 (admittedly small) peanut butter cookies, and I'm pretty sure there was one day where I ate no fruits or vege... Read more

It's nice to see you again! Yes, it HAS been a long time since we last saw each other. But I'm going to do my best to keep in touch with you now, because I want to see you every day for the rest of my life! I'm sorry if that sounds cli... Read more

I have to say, I didn't intend to do much with the website when I first signed up with SparkPeople. I still never click on emails to earn my SparkPoints, though I do love reading all the articles and tips that are sent. Lately, however, I'm star... Read more

I have had a very slow weight loss experience. I began changing my diet and adding more exercise into my daily routine back in November or 2009. Here it is, May 2011...and I'm nowhere near my goal. I've had months-long plateaus, periods where I... Read more
