Well, well, well... We meet again.

I've thought about this place often, but just "didn't have the time" and "wasn't in the mood" to come back and keep up with things. The mere idea, honestly, exhausted me. Excuses excuses. And yet, I sure as hell found the "time" for unhealthy ha... Read more
Where I've been & where I'm going...
Tuesday, November 09, 2010      0 comments

Needless to say, I've been absent from Sparkpeople for awhile now. It's been a crazy, hectic few months, and things are about to get even crazier. I simply haven't made checking in to the site a priority. This doesn't mean I have completely aban... Read more

First of all, thank you, again, to those that took a minute to respond to my last blog/send a goodie/personal message of support and encouragement. It just further reminds me why I love this site and find it an invaluable resource. I truly belie... Read more
Frustration abounds!
Saturday, August 28, 2010      4 comments

I normally don't like to be a Negative Nancy or all "woe is me", but I'm frustrated! I admit, I've had a couple slip-ups in the past few days, but nothing to the tune of completely throwing in the towel and giving up on all of this. Since I star... Read more

(Written by DeLores Pressley www.bornsuccessful.com) 1. Don’t wait for tomorrow to start living today. Stop putting your life on hold waiting to be something that you are not. We spend precious time yearning and hoping instead of embracing ... Read more
Had to share this video...
Tuesday, August 17, 2010      1 comments

I saw this awhile ago, when it made the rounds on Facebook, but I thought I'd share it here, too. We could all take a lesson from this little Miss on how to stay positive! I think I need to wake up and do this every morning (sans standing on the... Read more
Phoning this one in (comment repost)
Tuesday, August 17, 2010      2 comments

I just posted this as a comment on someone's blog after she mentioned being stressed and doing terribly with her eating and exercise. I figured it was a good reminder for myself, too (since I'm an excellent cheerleader for others, but sometimes ... Read more
Owwww. Need advice for lower-back pain!
Friday, August 13, 2010      6 comments

I've had lower back issues pretty much my whole life. Even as a young child, before I was considered obese, my back was my "achilles heel". I carry my stress in my back and used to have regular chiropractor visits to help alleviate some of the i... Read more
Dusting this off and getting back at it...
Thursday, August 12, 2010      4 comments

I decided to make my page public again, after having it private for the past year. Granted, I hadn't used this site much in that past year, so it's not like anyone was missing out on a whole lot. But now that I'm back and becoming more active in... Read more
Good stuff/Non-scale victories
Monday, April 27, 2009      2 comments

Yesterday was a birthday BBQ for one of my cousins, held at my Aunt & Uncle's property (gorgeous farmland and house my uncle built). When I arrived, I could see the jaws of a number of people drop when I walked into the room. It felt great to be... Read more
Just a quickie
Friday, March 13, 2009      1 comments

After being stuck at the same weight (within 5-10lbs) for months, I'm finally on the losing path again. In fact, I've lost almost 20lbs in just the past month. Aside from caving a bit and having sweets yesterday (sister's birthday), I've pretty ... Read more
Still at it
Friday, January 23, 2009      0 comments

Got more walking in yesterday, and my legs are nice and sore. And I really do mean "nice", because it's a good kind of sore when you know it's helping you in the long-run! Dropped MJ off at school and took Max out to walk along Alki again. When ... Read more
Making progress
Wednesday, January 21, 2009      2 comments

I made it out to take a nice brisk walk this morning, after dropping my daughter off at school. I bundled up little man and pushed him in the stroller along Alki beach. I would've liked to walk even more, but it was still pretty chilly out, and ... Read more
Au revoir, 2008. Well hello there, 2009.
Friday, January 02, 2009      1 comments

I'm sure SparkPeople has gotten its share of new members over the past couple of days, and will continue to see a spike in signups as people make and try to stick to resolutions of changed health. I've been around, though not signing on to ... Read more
Hello, again, hello.
Sunday, August 10, 2008      3 comments

Long time no post, eh? Wish I could say it was because I was off having fabulous adventures and managed to lose 10 more pounds in the process! But no. Well, that's not entirely incorrect. We did take the kids for a wonderful week-long ... Read more
