    1/1/2020 2:26:06 PM, by GEEKGIRL67

    Happy New Year! Last selfie of the year, before I went to bed. Don't ask me what I was thinking, because I really didn't know. LOL. Slept in late today, because I had issues with acid reflux. I have to remember NOT to eat red sauce at night, & to not eat before going to bed. I never had ... Read more

    2019: A YEAR OF UPS AND DOWNS..... I've spent the past few days going over everything that has happened in my life, loved one's life and my community in 2019. It has not been a bed of roses; to say the least. Feburary 2019 we had a water main break and the pipe was UNDER the Great Miami River which... Read more

    I don't make New Year's resolutions, they would just be forgotten by mid January. However, it's been a week now since I FINALLY decided to spend the money on ME and get another Fitbit. This Ionic is a huge upgrade from my old Fitbit. I have lost FIVE lbs, and of course that will drop back to a po... Read more

    12/31/2019 9:25:13 AM, by SHONDAWALKER

    Been doing WW for 3 years and have been unsuccessful. Not because of the program but because of my choices. I figure I’ll give SP to help get out of my failed mindset. Worked out for the first time today ina very long time. 2020 is time to focus on me! 😁 So excited to start this new path on my jou... Read more

  • Back...again.

    12/30/2019 8:29:19 PM, by GEEKGIRL67

    Last entry was 2/19...WOW! Has it really been that long? Been focusing on Weight Watcher's, and that seems to help. Although, I don't think I really like the purple program I decided to go with. The fact you CAN have potatoes on it could be a blessing AND a curse. I miss doing SP. I know the fo... Read more

  • Last Days Before the Official Start!

    12/30/2019 10:13:23 AM, by YOHANNAN

    I start my new regime at the stroke of midnight on New Years Eave! It might be a bit cliche, but the timing worked, so I am going to go with it. I already have temptations bugging me, but I am determined to do this. My biggest goal will be to cut the sugar. I am an addict, and that is no exagg... Read more

    I posted in last night's blog that I would be back, and here I am. Did you miss me??? :) Today is a whole new day with new challenges, but we will get through them one way or another. Sometimes we have to go around the storm, and others we have to go through the storms, but no matter what... Read more

  • Was Gone For A Few Days

    12/29/2019 1:47:38 AM, by PORTIA70

    The last few days since Christmas has kept me busy, which is why I have not done my usual posting and getting my points. But I am doing well. I hope that all of you Sparkers had a good Christmas. I know that it is hard during the holidays when the stress of running around shopping, cooking, and spen... Read more

  • One step back, many steps forward

    12/28/2019 12:47:31 AM, by WEWRTFO

    Completed a 25 hour water fast yesterday before caving into the resistance at midnight. Not from the water fast, but build up of over past two days of many things both in and out of my control limited by my mobility and recovery. Whatever excuses my mind accepted to make the huge bag of doritos ok... Read more

  • Another Year and more goals (some seem to be repeats)

    12/26/2019 1:37:50 PM, by CWILSON88

    In my quiet time on Christmas day I realized that my vision board last year looked like impossible soup. There were no clear defined spaces around goals, just photos of cars, places to travel and scales with my ideal weight on them. Just at every angle scattered about. Not really effective. ... Read more
