That's what my 5 year old daughter said earlier today. Wow. I was stung, of course. I told her that my feelings were hurt and that it's not polite to comment on how others look. Then I went into the bathroom and cried. I cried because she'... Read more

I am having a hard time committing to one eating program. I know Weight Watchers works, but I'm intrigued by the South Beach Diet. It seems easier to follow and I like the focus on healthy, whole foods. I cannot stand the thought of counting poi... Read more

There's something really cool about a new week. It's a fresh start, a chance to make even more good choices. I've now made very healthy choices for the past 4 days, but it's over now. Today is a whole new week. This week I will stay within... Read more

I dropped the Community Tean from my Sparkteams pages because I felt I could not seriously hope to motivate others if I could not consistently motivate myself. I regret that now, and I'm not sure how to un-do that. See, maybe the best way to mot... Read more
