Slow and steady wins the race, right? Small successes add to big success later on down the road, so I will take what I can get. I have decided to weigh and measure only once per month, because I can not obsess over it.... Read more
Here we go, AGAIN!

Wow, I am just annoyed with myself, but that's ok. It's motivating me to get my ass in gear. I knew I had gained a little but stepping on that scale really opened my eyes. So here we go AGAIN. It's amazing what stress and having no time to you... Read more
It has been a successful week.

I did ok this week and the scale shows it! It was not as bad as I thought it would be. I am starting a "Biggest Winner" contest at work next week (September 27th) and that ought to be interesting. We have teams of 3 and we need to weigh in each ... Read more

Well, it has been a long time since I have been on here and I need to kick myself in the ass. I let life get in the way again and I need to remember that I am important too. The good news: My husband and I are both working full time again.... Read more

Yesterday, our Massachusetts Sparklers team had a meetup. It was a great day. It was nice to meet so many new people that face the same challenges with life. I then took a walk on the Cape Cod Canal. I am proud to say I walked 1.25 miles in ea... Read more

Ok, so here goes me venting again! I finally spoke to someone at Unemployment last week about my claim. It has been 10 weeks now that I haven't been paid, so I thought this would be the end of it and I would start collecting finally. Well, gu... Read more
I am stressed

Ok, so I have been out of work for 8 weeks, and I am frustrated. I am still waiting to collect, and it is very annoying. It is just such a stupid reason why they are holding my claim. I was working 2 jobs. I quit one because it was too much to w... Read more

Ok, I am back AGAIN! Why do I keep doing this to myself? Life got in the way again and I lost my motivation. Hubby and I are both unemployed right now, and it is stressful, and we are struggling. I know, that is an excuse, but it is hard to c... Read more

HI, so now that I am only working 1 job, I should be able to devote more time to Spark People. I feel relieved. Financially, things aren't good, but my emotional health is better for it. I have joined a gym with some friends, and so far I hav... Read more

Well, I have decided to quit my second job. Although I really could use the money, I don't need the stress and aggravation that goes along with it. I have been sick 3 times in 6 months (and all 3 visits required me visiting a doctor), and even t... Read more
I need sunshine

I have had enough winter. I want sunshine and warmth. I read something the other day about vitamin D, and really think it would help me. I know I can take a supplement, but I would rather get it through some sunshine and warmth. If I coul... Read more

We had to put down our beloved dog today (the day after her 15th birthday). It is a very upsetting, emotional day for us. I feel sick inside and am completely depressed. I know she was suffering, so we didn't hesitate to make the right decisi... Read more

I don't know what is wrong with me today. I am tired and extremely cranky. We got more snow. I am really tired of winter. I have to go grocery shopping and really don't want to. DD is sick with a fever and sore throat, not strep, just some kind ... Read more

Hi everyone. I just joined a walking group, and had my first walk with a new friend this morning. It is only 15 degrees outside, but we walked for an hour. It felt good. Next week we are going to walk in the mall, due to bad weather we will b... Read more
