It has been a long time since I've entered a blog on my spark page as well as be an emotional wreck due to making poor decisions lately. I don't want to turn to food for comfort. Writing it out should make me feel better. Then I'll do my cardio ... Read more

I haven't been able to keep up with my Sparks. I take that back. Since I lost weight it has been difficult to lose any more than 30lbs. I changed my exercise regiment as often as possible, my knees started bothering me, but I would do as much as... Read more

I will never complain about snow again! Who knew shoveling the white stuff burned so many calories! I used my side and back muscles plus worked in a few squats! And for the first time I wasn't out of breath after one or two shovels full. Later o... Read more

OK. I know when you lose weight you will have to purchase new clothes. So, I included shoes and boots in the shopping trip. For the first time in ...I won't say how many years in order not to give my age away...I tried on a pair of boots and I C... Read more

I attended my first office party since I joined Sparks. My old habits almost came back when one of my co-workers asked me if I was still on the program (Sparks) and what I was drinking. My response was yes and what I wanted to drink was in a pit... Read more

In the beginning there was light....just kidding:). One of my many goals was to be able to touch my toes without anyone pushing down on my lower back. Now, I can reach them. Boy do those hamstrings need it after standing on a concrete floor all ... Read more

I'm so close to losing the first 20# of a hundred I can taste it. YEAH!!! I have come to grips with a few things though: 1. Carbs are like some of my friends. They are good for you, they mean well even when you find it difficult to be ar... Read more

While shopping my husband decided he wanted a large bag of chips. Keep in mind that potato chips were once a weakness of mine and they haven't been in the house since I've started sparks. I'm sure he thought he was being considerate by also purc... Read more

A friend of mine invited me to a family reunion/BBQ. My first reaction was a panic attack. With every social event I always panic especially if it involves food. Shortly after I reached into my bag of tricks. Eat the pre-planned meals, drink lot... Read more

Maybe I'm taking things too far but since I've started "Sparking" I have noticed a low tolerance for people who have personal agendas. Not just friends but relatives as well. Some say it's great that you are working on being a healthier and more... Read more

On a whim I tried on a pair of pants I purchased last summer. In the beginning of this summer I refused to wear them because I remembered how uncomfortable they became at the end of the season. Today, not only do they fit I actually have a littl... Read more
