That Sugar Film
Monday, March 13, 2017      10 comments

Tuesday, March 07, 2017      14 comments

This morning I read an article posted by a fellow Sparker on one of my team message boards. The article was interesting, and also very, very scary. Reading it would almost give anyone with serious weight issues reason to think they should just t... Read more

Watch Your Mouth
Thursday, January 26, 2017      22 comments

We all know that words hurt. It's important to realize that our own words can hurt us just as much as someone else's. After all, we may not always believe what someone else says, but we probably believe ourselves when we say something. Watc... Read more
Walking the Neighborhood
Sunday, January 22, 2017      9 comments

I'm starting to enjoy going out for a walk. Especially when it is unseasonably warm for January in Chicago. I still can go great distances... but I'm getting better and that's my goal, to do better each time. Yesterday would have really been the... Read more

Wednesday, December 28, 2016      13 comments

I wrote a blog a few days ago about the fabulous find hubby had with the PB2 (powdered peanut butter). Make no mistake, it really is a great find, and has far FAR fewer calories than standard peanut butter, and less fat too. It tastes fantastic,... Read more
Best Thing Since Peanut Butter
Friday, December 23, 2016      25 comments

I LOVE peanut butter--and, it's at least one of the good fats. However, I have never been able to justify the huge amount of calories for a small serving size, so I don't really eat it normally--until NOW. Hubby (BobP56) saw an interesting ... Read more

New NSV

Woo HOO old swim suits were too big and baggy (they were smaller than I could have worn at the start back then, so even they were an improvement). They were size 32! I bought a new suit -- size 26!!! And it FITS. Tight, but good, (it will loosen... Read more
