I'm trying to post more regularly in order to enhance my SP experience :) but also because my only real-life buddy in this journey is my son, and sometimes I'm not sure that's by choice. I run alone, and I don't have anyone to whom I hold myself... Read more

Wow...I can't believe it! Where did the time go? It's been four years since I started tracking my food and exercise on SparkPeople. Sure, I've fallen off the wagon a couple times, had a few missteps, taken a look at myself and said "oops" - but ... Read more

So, it's almost summer and I have a closet full of clothes that don't fit. I bought them all at my goal weight, which I reached two summers ago thanks to Sparkpeople. Last summer, I could kind of squeeze into some of them (and ripped the crotch ... Read more

November was a bad, bad month...lots of eating, little exercise, and overall a pretty piss-poor attitude towards all things healthy. What a funk I was in! December brought about my one-year SP anniversary, and renewed interest in maintainin... Read more

Okay, so my sucky eating habits have persisted. I'm now a night grazer. I NEVER was before, even though I know it's a problem for others. All of a sudden, I can't seem to get enough to eat at night, even though I'm probably not hungry. I've... Read more

My running and healthy eating habits have been entirely non-existent the past couple weeks. I can't explain the eating...but I've been having trouble with my legs and foot. I keep waking up with cramps in my legs...not good when you're trying to... Read more

Why is it the California has a waiting period for divorces? I don't get the premise for this waiting period. My hearing is tomorrow, and the divorce will likely be granted at that time. But it won't be final until 6 months after the date I filed... Read more

I've always had trouble with self-image, and it has prevented me from taking a lot of chances or experiencing a lot of what life had to offer. I'm not a huge Oprah fan, I've never watched her show, but I found this article on CNN and it really h... Read more

Okay, so TTOM was due....a long time ago? I'm at least a week late. In the meantime, I'm bloated and crampy and moody...just a real joy to be around! Nothing seems to be making it any better...not exercise, not eating healthy, not eating poorly,... Read more
