I just started reading Chris Downie's book, The Spark. It's fantastic! I remember first hearing about SparkPeople.com back in 2006, I think. I never knew his story. It is one of the most exciting and encouraging stories I have ever heard. It def... Read more

My weekend hasn't been very good. I've mostly just isolated in my house. That's not good for the figure or my mindset. I'm out of food. It's hard to eat right when there's nothing in the house. I have a long to-do list, but I just don't feel lik... Read more

1) I must track my food. It's a hassle, but I've learned it gives me some kind of peace. It also keeps me quiet for a few minutes so I stop eating. I've heard it takes 15 minutes for you to feel full, so stopping to track my food adds towards ... Read more
