My whole blog post just got deleted by the laptop ghost. I swear, every time I try to type something he just sneaks in and wipes it all out and I get to type everything over again. *sigh* So, tomorrow I get to return to my office without my... Read more

Let me take you back to 2007. I was 188 pounds. Miserable in my own skin. I'd been a big girl all my life, and my husband at the time was not exactly kind about it. I found SparkPeople and joined... and flourished. I was a stay-at-home mom so I ... Read more

Wednesday, March 14, 2018      1 comments

Okay. So, I really don't expect perfection. I've done this before and I know what lies ahead. I also know that the first few weeks are the hardest. I do know that the one thing that kept me on track 10 years ago was planning my food at least a d... Read more

This whole week has been a blowout for me. I'm beating myself up for it, but at the same time, there is no way that I could control how things played out. We had my guys sons over for three days. Within those three days, I drove for over 1... Read more

Sunday, May 29, 2016      2 comments

I have to admit that I have been very discouraged as of late. To me, it seemed as though I was getting nowhere. I'd been back with Sparkpeople for a little over a month and had only lost 10 pounds. The last few weeks have been very slow-going. I... Read more

I have to say that my second time around is proving to be discouraging. I have so much working against me now that I didn't have back in 2007. Back then I was a heavy smoker. As of now I've gone from 24mg of nicotine down to 0mg in the last... Read more
