I've been a sparkpeople member since 2009, but just recently picked it back up & became serious about tracking my goals and calories in & out. Last year was excellent in terms of fitness, but being back home in LA for a little while over the Christmas/New Year Holiday kind of (okay, REALLY) undid a lot of my hard work (Louisiana food is dangerously delicious as evidenced by our ranking in the top 5 for obesity). Nevertheless, I am on a...
