It is so good to be back. I've been away from SP for most of 2008. I've missed you all, but I've been busy with life and then it just got hard to get back into the swing of things. I'm still not back in the swing yet, but I'm in my planning s... Read more

3/19/08, 12:35 am Last Friday, I began a downward spiral that turned me back into a possessed sugar junkie. I have sabotaged my efforts and taken quite a step backwards from all the great progress that I've made the last 5 weeks. I really w... Read more

Well it's been several days since I last posted. I've had a few setbacks with my eating since then as well. I was excited last Monday to see a 3 lb weight loss from the week before. But for some reason, my mind gave me license to eat since I ... Read more

First, I'll write about dinner last night. We ended up at Texas Land and Cattle. My grilled chicken salad aspirations went out the window when I saw the smoked sirloin and LOBSTER special. I LOVE lobster! So I got the special with baked swee... Read more

Happy New Year's Eve! It is so much easier to journal when things are going well...and they are! I am on Day 3 and the last two days have gone well. I've stayed within my calorie range and Day 2 was easier than Day 1. We are going out to eat... Read more

Wow! This one really hit me. I feel like life is just speeding by me much of the time. Everything is just rushing by. The moments I should be cherishing with my young children are speed by without me even noticing. I let all the little unim... Read more

Okay, I'm addicted to peanut M&Ms. I am getting better at accomplishing my fast break goals, but I'm still getting into the M&Ms. Today I did 50 minutes of Turbo Jam. I've been pretty inactive for over a month now, so it was difficult. But I... Read more
