Wednesday the kids and I go back to school. My classes also start up tomorrow. I have really enjoyed my three weeks off, but admit it will feel good to get back to a regular routine. I can follow routines. Without them, I get bored and ten... Read more

So, I'm two weeks into Sparking again and I'm feeling great. My stomach has 'shrunk' and gotten used to eating smaller amounts of food and my body has gotten used to moving in oxygen again (actually, much quicker than what I anticipated), but I... Read more

It really is amazing how far I've come. I lost a total of 30 lbs in 2007 and I have another 30 to lose in 2008. I know that I can do it because I've already done it. I think my journey this year will be different than last year. I hope i... Read more
