Recent Friend Adds
Thursday, March 31, 2011      3 comments

If you are here because I recently added you as a spark (friend?) - hello. I haven't used SparkPeople in about 2-3 years. I am still not certain if I am ready to venture back into using SP as a weight loss tool but I wanted to finally add thos... Read more
No Promises

I am going to take small, slow, and steady steps to getting back on track towards health and life goals. I've been struggling the past year with many problems - family issues, relationship issues, unemployment and financial issues, health issue... Read more
Spotlight - Blessing?
Friday, January 18, 2008      17 comments

When I woke up today to see that I had about 60 e-mails from Sparkpeople (as opposed to the typical 5 daily newsletters) I knew immediately "something must be up." I wasn't too phased by it because it has been a year or so since I've lost most... Read more

SO so sooo.. it has been a long time! I've been trying to be more productive on SP but, ugh, so busy. I haven't written in my own journals or anything for months. I will try though, to write more often. The good news is that I decided t... Read more
Be A Snack Sleuth
Friday, October 19, 2007      0 comments

This is an article from iVillage TotalHealth "Conquer your Cravings" newsletters that I get in e-mails every day. I thought it was very fitting to my current challenge so I wanted to share - especially since many of the steps are the exact ones ... Read more
Sweets Week 2
Monday, October 15, 2007      2 comments

So, I think my first week of banning "pure sweets" has gone pretty well! It was beyond tough and I did make some slip ups but nothing catastrophic. First of all, I let my boyfriend know about my plan to ban sweets (basically anything sweet... Read more
Goodbye Sweetie
Tuesday, October 09, 2007      2 comments

I feel an unhealthy "addiction" to sweets inside of me. I know this seems almost a given when being someone who has struggled with weight issues, but it isn't common for me. I've never been a sweets kind of gal, more of a carbs and whatever els... Read more
Finding Deep Strength
Friday, September 07, 2007      1 comments

I've been very busy lately with classes and work, but I wanted to share this recent DailyOm passage with you all. I feel it greatly relates to the kind of process and thinking I had to go through in order to achieve the successes that I have. I ... Read more

Ahh, college has begun yet again! I can not explain how impatient I have been for this day to come. I have missed the gym so much! It felt incredible to run and jog on that treadmill again. I made a new workout playlist, incredible music made me... Read more
I Apologize for the Final Time
Wednesday, August 08, 2007      7 comments

Ooh new blogging capabilities! So, as my main page says I quit my summer camp job actually about 2 weeks ago, the day before my 22nd birthday. Things just weren't working out and I became so stressed that I was turning to food to comfort myself... Read more
New Beginnings
Wednesday, June 20, 2007      3 comments

I don't know how many new "beginnings" I've had - probably hundreds. It may seem silly, but starting "new" is what has gotten me this far. Every time I get in a rut, I have to wash the mistakes and the way of thinking from myself and start with... Read more
Day 1 of Food Journal
Tuesday, May 22, 2007      2 comments

So today was day one of writing my food down in an actual journal. I just did it now, but for the future I want to try to write it as soon as I eat (or as soon after as possible). It is really hard for me not to snack. It is almost like a c... Read more
Facing Myself
Monday, May 21, 2007      1 comments

No weigh in yet for this week, as I've been out of town - but I have no doubts that it will be a sad weigh in. I lost control of myself from Thursday on, which is really sad. I was doing really well - down to about 176 and then a birthday hit. I... Read more
New Era
Tuesday, May 15, 2007      0 comments

So I said I would begin again this week, and I believe I have. Things are still really tough and rough with college - but this should be pretty much my last week. I have two more classes tomorrow and then a final Monday. During these final days ... Read more
Impending Return
Wednesday, May 09, 2007      0 comments

I think I am ready to return to face weight loss head-on. However, this week is an extremely busy and crazy one so I think I will wait till the end of the week to take SparkPeople back on full force. I've been struggling more lately than I... Read more
