Back at this healthy living thing once again. I have been struggling with stress, depression and anxiety, and have used food to cope entirely too often. Making changes and looking for friends/accountability partners with a similar mindset.... Read more
My opinion on "the other" on-line weight loss option
Wednesday, July 18, 2012      5 comments

Been almost a year since I last blogged here. I took a break from SP and tried Weight Watcher's On-line for part of that time. I was curious if having fruits and veggies be "free" would help me to keep on track and also help me consume more frui... Read more

I have been away for a while. I haven't been logging on or tracking my food or fitness this summer. I have regained 15 of the 70 pounds I had lost in the last year. It is frustrating, but it is what it is. I know what I did (or mostly what I did... Read more

I know I am not alone. I know that other people are struggling with this. I have really been having a hard time this winter, and am hopeful that sunshine and warmer weather will help. But I also realize that this is likely to be a lasting battle... Read more

I joined the Harry Potter Challenge team last night. (So cool, wish I had found that sooner.) I was sorted into Ravenclaw by the sorting hat. (I am cool with that.) Their Winter Term week #5 challenge includes writing a blog about your three cur... Read more

It has been a long time since I blogged at all. I have to admit that I lost my focus over the holidays. I regained ten of the 63 pounds I had struggled so hard to lose. What a rough road it was to have to RE-LOSE the same ten pounds. You feel so... Read more

I realized today that I haven't blogged in a month or so. I need to be more on top of that, but it has been crazy these past few weeks. So much has happened and changed in my life! First and foremost, my second daughter moved into the dorms... Read more

OK, I am looking for some support here on an issue that is not really weight loss related. How do other people deal with unreasonable and unsupportive relatives? I called my father yesterday and in the course of the conversation we were discuss... Read more

I must come clean. I have lost my way. Today is day 4 of my pity party. We lost power over the weekend and I lost all of the food I had prepped for myself for this week, along with most of the food I had for the family. We spent the weekend eat... Read more

I have been reading posts and message boards every day, and I love to check out new people's SparkPages. I recently noticed something. A lot of Sparkers don't have any friends on their pages! I can't even imagine. The only reason I'm here is bec... Read more
Confessions of a Real Life Mom...

OK, so I was doing well for a little bit on the exercise. But, guess what? Life gets in the way sometimes. I have been busy and tired all week, and I have been lazy where workouts are concerned. But I have learned that is okay, and that I can ge... Read more

Finally getting a little more regular exercise. Walking 20 minutes per morning, five mornings a week. It is a start, which is what I needed to do. Unfortunately the heat here has been too stifling after work (or even during the work day), but so... Read more

Still having trouble getting exercising. My life is busy, but not physically active enough to meet my goals. I know that life's stressors are not helping my depression, which is in turn making it harder to get up and moving. I know I can do th... Read more
