Getting back up after failing!
Friday, February 23, 2018      9 comments

I admit I stayed away from spark people for a long time because I was disappointed with myself after regaining all the weight I had worked so hard to get off. I looked at my ticker on my spark page and saw where it used to be and dreaded having... Read more

It seems like I'm revisiting some road I've passed by before, but I'm grateful to have to not start from where I've been. Back in 2007 I weighed 285 pounds. I was in a dark place. I lost my best friend, that I had known half my life. She was... Read more

fatty liver blues
Thursday, May 13, 2010      1 comments

I guess I'm feeling down because I havent seen any weightloss for about a month. This is most likely because of my fatty liver. It makes me worry about if the effort I'm putting in is ever going to show on the scale. I know I need to stay pos... Read more
