I can't believe I've been off SP for so long. But now I'm back, and feeling really motivated again. I've gained back a few (okay, 20) pounds since last November, but I'm down from 220 to 212 again, so 8 lbs down in the last 3 weeks; I'll take... Read more

Just a quick WOOHOO because I've finally ditched my size 18 jeans that I've been pulling up constantly to keep from falling down. I went shopping for a few things last week, and was surprised to realize I now fit very comfortably into size 14 ... Read more

Went to the doctor today for a routine followup. For the first time in who knows HOW long, my blood pressure is safely within the normal range. It wasn't horrifically high before, but always hovering just a point or two below the level where m... Read more

Back to my old workout routine again...feels awesome! When I was a child, adults who knew me used to say I had "nervous energy," which was simply a polite euphamism for "why can't that girl sit still?" I never really grew out of it. Unles... Read more
