I was reading through my nutrition tracker, feeling a little sad that I went over my calories twice last week...when I noticed something strange. My tracker said that I had eaten Sour Cream & Onion potato chips. I sat there staring at it. Those ... Read more

Good morning Sparkers! I'm going to be honest with you right now. I have lied to you. My weight...it is not what I claimed on my progress bar. You see, I gained some back. Not a lot. Just a little...but it was enough to cause me to be a com... Read more

Do you know what I love? Kale chips. Dehydrated, raw, kale chips. I get a bag of "Southwestern Ranch" kale chips, and I promise myself that I won't eat the whole bag. I'll only eat half...AND then I eat the whole bag...but it's okay. ... Read more

I drove away from my house this morning, and looked down at the passenger seat next to me...where my bag of snacks should be. The realization that I had left them at home made me growl. If I don't have snacks during the day, my brain goes crazy.... Read more

When someone on the forum says, “I CAN’T lose weight,” what are you supposed to say back to them? Are you supposed to say... “Yay! Yes you can! Go Sparker! RAWR!” Or... “It sounds to me like you’ve already made your mind up t... Read more
The Unsupportive Sparker
Thursday, January 10, 2013 11 comments
I am not very supportive today. In the mornings I like to go to the “Panic Button” section of the message boards. People are frantic about one thing or another. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy to give them some encouragement or advice. ... Read more

Today, I managed to stay within my calorie range with 17 calories to spare. I’m not quite sure how I managed that. It’s a victory. While my tracker was overwhelmed with a tsunami of red wine, it was spared the humiliation of being the vict... Read more

Friday, August 12, 2011 5 comments
Few things make me more angry than people than people who say obviously stupid things. There’s a featured article today here on SP that says that, despite our eating right and exercising, stress may be sabotaging our efforts to lose weight.... Read more

My scale and I have been at war for years. It's been a bit like the siege of Troy...only longer. Both of us refuse to surrender and I fear this conflict may continue for many years to come. I know what you're going to say. You are a well-r... Read more
Be Brave Sparkers!

Wandering around on the SP forums keeps me from eating compulsively. It occupies my brain for a while. I read the posts from other Sparkers who are struggling with their disordered behaviors or are declaring their triumphs. Far too often, ... Read more
Faith Vs. Strength

I just read a blog that was all about the strength and discipline we gain from our parents and grandparents. It reminded me of my own grandfather. He was a tough old sod. He endured hardship and tragedy. Through it all he maintained dignity. He ... Read more
