Two days back into Spark and I crash and burn. Fall off the wagon or whatever euphemism you choose to describe what most consider an epic failure. For me food is my drug, my addiction, and when I am stressed, upset, anxious and even bored at... Read more

So yesterday was my check-up with my doctor. This was the first appointment since I had been told to put on my big girl panties. She had wanted me to lose 2-4 lbs by yesterday and to get my blood sugars under 120. I got a gold star! My wei... Read more

This has been an interesting week and not one of my best for fitness. I had to have a nerve biopsy to check how much damage I have in my feet. My leg has been sore all week from it and not real happy when I walk or use it too much. So I have bee... Read more

A lot has happened in my life since the last time I wrote a blog. I lost my mother, my aunt and my father-in-law all within 12 days. I also lost 2 of my cats. I wallowed in grief and ate my way back up the scale about 20 lbs (on top of the other... Read more
