I don't understand how a 28 year old wife and mother becomes a widow. How does a 30 year old husband, father, son, brother, friend, and teacher die so young? I know that we are blessed with our loved ones only briefly and that God calls us back ... Read more

I have been griping about my scale for a while now. Well, to be fair, I've been griping about the numbers on my scale not the scale itself. Anyway, my husband has been suggesting that it wasn't calibrated properly and that we should get a new di... Read more

So, in late December my hubby and I went out to eat. The next day I had gained like 4 lbs. It took until last week for me to really see it gone again. Then, Friday night we went out to eat and I had a couple of drinks that I am sure were loaded ... Read more

According to SP I can lose 15 pounds by early April '09. I started on Spark 12/24. I have yet to lose any weight. I wonder if it will just start flying off at some point or if the goal is unrealistic? Like I've said, I'm minding my nutrition ... Read more

Oooh, I am SO frustrated. I have already missed 2 out of my 3 scheduled strength days this week. "What happened?", you might ask. Well, I tend to exercise in the early evening. Then, I shower, eat and get ready for the next day. Unfortunately, i... Read more
