So I started working out a little while ago, and got sick AGAIN! I have been sick more this winter than I've been healthy. I think part of it has to do with working out in a cold, moldy basement (that's where my treadmill is). So it got me... Read more

I dont mind the snow...actually, I love it. I love snowmobiling, watching my dog play, even shoveling (it's a great workout). I love watching it fall and seeing the snowcovered ground and trees....HOWEVER, I HATE the cold! I knew we were getting... Read more

I started SparkPeople about 2.5 months ago, starting at 218 pounds. I started out doing pretty well, watching what I was eating, logging my food, increasing my activity level. I started to slow down during the holidays, not logging everything, b... Read more

I am starting to really hate winter. I had Friday off and went Christmas shopping with my mother. We had a great time and got a lot accomplished. It started to snow a few minutes from our house on our way home. We were less than 5 minutes from ... Read more

I keep hearing that slow and steady is the way to go. In that case I guess I am doing things the right way. My goal is to be at or under 200 pounds by Christmas. I am not sure that I will reach that goal, but I am steadily losing 1-2 pounds a we... Read more

I really did not get in as much exercise as I would have wanted this past week, so when it came time for my weekly weight in, I put it off for a day. I was dreading looking at the scale to see no progress being made. I manned up and jumped on t... Read more

I promised myself that I would start moving more today. I planned on getting up early and taking my dog for a nice long fast paced walk. I get up and it is POURING out! I do not have a gym membership (too $$$), so now I am trying to figure out h... Read more

Chocolate is my weakness. I love candy bars and have been craving chocolate. Someone offered me on of my favorite candy bars yesterday, and I turned it down! I was feeling so good about my decision that I only ate half of what I normally would f... Read more
