Picking myself up and moving forward
Friday, October 11, 2013      1 comments

Today's SparkCoach topic was very timely for me. I have had a lot going on lately and I haven't been keeping up with my tracking as much as I would like to. That's hard for me, because I have strong perfectionist tendencies that want to be sur... Read more

Wednesday, September 25, 2013      3 comments

I knew I needed to get back on the weight loss bandwagon for a while before I mustered up the energy to do it. I was hesitant to commit to it at this time in my life, because I knew I would have a lot of stress going on around buying my house, ... Read more
My "Why"

The disease question
Monday, September 09, 2013      2 comments

(This was my response on the discussion boards. I wanted to save it here as a blog, too.) It's a great topic for discussion, although I definitely agree it's more than either/or. In trying to answer the question, it depends a lot on who i... Read more
Positive Changes

Today's Sparkcoach task is very timely for me. I HAVE been working hard, and although the scale has moved, it is only VERY slightly. However, there are other things to notice: I'm less stiff when I get up from sitting, and that's something ... Read more

I am buying a house! My closing is this Friday. My kids will have their own bedrooms, and I will be able to have a bedroom that is just a bedroom, instead of a bedroom/ office / craft area/ exercise equipment / off season storage area! (In my ... Read more
Overdid it last night
Wednesday, August 21, 2013      4 comments

Well that's frustrating. I had an almost complete blog written and I don't know where it went. I just wanted to confess my overeating episode from last night. I stayed up and watched more TV than I needed to and ate half of my lunch for t... Read more

Coming back

I've been struggling for a while, especially since my sister was diagnosed with leukemia last summer. I have let go of the healthy habits one by one that I worked so hard to build, and surprise! most of the weight is back. My sister's cancer cam... Read more
This Takes the Cake!!
Thursday, September 15, 2011      4 comments

Reconnected with my brother
Friday, September 09, 2011      6 comments

First, Thank you all so much for the prayers and good wishes after my last blog. It's really touching to see (again!) what a caring community this is. I got in touch with my brother the day after that was written. I was shocked that he p... Read more
My so-called family
Tuesday, September 06, 2011      10 comments

I've alluded to the issues with my family a bit here and there in my blogs, but I usually try to keep things positive and light and happy. I've been estranged from my sister since I left my husband and ended my marriage. Apparently she disappr... Read more
