First, I refuse to ever start over when it comes to weight loss. All you can do is keep moving forward. It is easy to dwell on yesterday, but you can't. Yesterday, for the first time in forever, I tracked everything I ate. Everything. ... Read more

I left Spark People about 3 years ago. It was not because I did not love SP or my wonderful friends here, life just got busy and the reality is, I wasn't important enough to take the time out to be here. March 1st marked one year since my ... Read more

There are days I don't track every BLT (bite, lick & taste). There are days I am too tired or more honestly, too lazy to exercise. There are days I wonder if I am ever going to reach my goal. There are days I get discouraged. There are d... Read more

Last Saturday I went to a local Color & Glow 5K run with a group of friends. If you are not familiar, it is a run that you do at night, you are sprayed with neon paint along the way, and run under black lights not to mention you wear a bunch of... Read more

Life would not be life without a few bumps in the road. Lately I have hit those bumps ... really hard. It is when you hit those bumps, you discover who will walk with you & who will step on your back when you fall. I nearly let this per... Read more

This morning I logged onto Facebook & the top status on my newsfeed was from a high school classmate that I had not seen since the day we graduated. In a few short weeks she is headed to the dreaded DMV to have her license picture taken. She a... Read more

It is 10:42 pm, Tuesday, August 19th. I have blogged, made excuses, made a commitment to myself to make this work. I even made an unspoken promise to my child, that he was important enough for me to do this. Nothing has worked. I am di... Read more

I have come to the end of the detour. Time to get back on the Weight Watchers road and reach my goal. The last 2 weeks I have eaten like an unsupervised fat kid. First, we went to visit family at the beach for 4 days. I packed WW frien... Read more

I hate to admit it... but I am pretty sure "the change" is coming my way. From all that I have read, I am thinking that menopause may not be quite as far away as I thought. It feels like my body is doing a whole lot of stuff that it did no... Read more

Last Friday, July 18th, I had 3.4 lb gain at Weight Watchers. I didn't get upset, I didn't wonder why ... I already knew the answer. The drive thru. I have no excuse. Last week my munchkin had camp until 1p each day. As a "treat", we wo... Read more

I hate to exercise. There I said it. I am not a fan of sweating, panting, aching, etc. Walking has become boring. We have a gym membership, but the "dread"mill is well, the dreadmill. Eating well is extremely important, but it is not ... Read more
