I want to be "HER" again.

My Sparkpage banner is a photo of my feet when I was super fit and doing the right things. I remember HER. I want to be her again. That was 14 years ago. I don't expect to be exactly the same. I just want to be doing and being what she did back ... Read more

I do not like mirrors. I avoid them. I do have a couple of full length mirrors in my house. I just hide my eyes and don't look as I pass by them. I don't want to look. In fact mirrors are so adversarial to my life and being, I would love if I di... Read more

Just about everything I do in regard to my "weight loss journey" makes me laugh these days. I know what to do. I know how to do it. I just DON'T do it (sometimes). I have said many times before on this site that I do not do "cheat days" for the ... Read more

Oh geesh. So here we go. I stopped eating bread and bread-like substances years ago. I have a body type that craves starchy carbs. I think I could actually live on loaves of bread. Of course, I wouldn't live long, but I would die happy. LOL Anyw... Read more

I will be the first to admit, I have an issue with not being very positive. Luckily in the past year, I have started learning to catch myself when that brain roll of negative self talk starts happening. I have written in a Gratitude Journal on a... Read more

OK! Here we go again. LOL LOL I am laughing because it has become ridiculously silly. For me, it isn't that I don't know what or how to be the person I want to be. I know exactly what to do and how to do it. I just have to DO IT! I decided to ... Read more

I am to the point I am laughing hysterically. I joined SP last year. I was doing so well. About the 7th month, things started to get wobbly. I didn't want to stick to it and each week, it got worse and worse. I started eating junk. I wasn't exer... Read more

I did a very dumb thing, but I don't regret it at all. Back when I hopped on this bandwagon, I did so well. I was dropping weight and exercising more and more. Each month, I progressed and felt great. THEN a little over a month ago, I just let i... Read more

I just have to laugh at myself. This coming week will be the end of May. This month has been a ^(*^(*&^4&^$&^$!!!!!!! for me. I have had about as many good days as bad. Even Steven. In other words, I am holding and standing in place. It reminds ... Read more

I had a really great revelation today. I noticed something really good. When I was a little girl, my family life was very dysfunctional. Consequently, I developed habits to cope. Obviously, eating too much was often one of them. We didn't have g... Read more
