I'm frustrated with myself. I lost over 50 pounds, and they all found me. I helped them, of course -- they followed the trail of peanuts, and chips, and, well, you get the picture. So I'm back to square 1, wanting to lose 140 pounds and get h... Read more

I've been wondering for a while what's wrong with me. I've been "limping along", half-tracking, not weighing in, not measuring portions, dialing in my exercise, just plain old not sticking to my plan. During my morning cup-of-tea-on-the-de... Read more

He, like me, was an in-law. We married into the same family. He and his wife would have raised our son, had something happened to DH & me. He never stopped smiling. He was a world-class engineer with the soul of a poet. He always knew t... Read more

I've been pondering my adult eating habits lately, particularly since I want to eat fewer processed foods. I do fairly well at meal times, but I'm realizing that my snacks are tripping me up. My eating plan calls for 3 meals and 3 snac... Read more

One of my SparkFriends (REBECCATKD) asked me what I thought my future would look like once I crossed the finish line and met my weight loss goal. Gotta tell ya -- when I read her note I realized that I had no clue. Sure, I know the number ... Read more

Sometimes the best way to move forward is to just start over. I'm exercising, but I'm not tracking my food. Therefore, I've gained 4 pounds in the last month. I also haven't been weighing myself, because. I told myself I was on a SparkBr... Read more

The hubs and I have been talking lately about eating less salt and adding more un- or gently processed foods to our meals. I would definitely benefit from less salt & sugar (amazing where they're hiding those things these days!), and so would h... Read more

Last Monday, we were still chipping/shoveling/sweeping out from a weekend's worth of winter. Despite slightly warmer (and longer!) days, I was beginning to wonder when the weather would feel more Spring-like. Usually by now, the crocuses are ... Read more

Those are the words that ran through my head when my weight popped up on the scale this morning. I have gained back 12 pounds. Ugh. It feels like a rubbery, fat-filled balloon has inflated around me. I kept thinking of the Cowa... Read more

I've been reading over my past few blogs, and chuckled that I thought that I had even remotely gotten myself back on track. Well, I had. Then a "tornado" hit -- physical, mental, and emotional turmoil at a level I've never experienced befo... Read more
