A New Beginning
Friday, July 26, 2019      4 comments

I have been on a yo-yo ride with my weight since I was a teenager. Up, down, sideways it seems. I was at my lowest in 2013 after losing almost 100 pounds clean eating and using Spark People. Then all hell broke loose. I lost my job and I lost m... Read more

Thursday, January 01, 2015      4 comments

In looking back over the last few years on Sparkpeople, I really feel like I have wronged myself. Dreadfully. The last few blog posts are at the beginning of the year, and the end of the year. Wanting to make it "the year". Then once again ... Read more

It happens to all of us. It has happened to me so many times in the past two years. If it didn’t happen, I would’ve been at my goal weight by now. Pardon my French, but Sh*t Happens I guess. Am I right? I can come up with all the excuses ... Read more

I have been at this plateau for weeks now. I am really hoping changing up my workout routine and my eating habits a bit will help. Just making myself accountable helps. Adding things in, taking things out. Seems I do very well durin... Read more
