Last week was a difficult one on me. After losing 2 pounds a week consistently over the last 3 weeks, I gained 2. I know why it happened, and I'm refusing to beat myself up over it. My weight gain simply boils down to this: I wasn't paying ... Read more

Since my last burst of motivation to use Spark People, I have become single twice. I have spent time in a hospital. I have lost 3/4 of my hair due to head surgery. This time, it's for me. I've realized that, no matter how much a person... Read more
