I have decided to keep Spark People but use the basic membership rather than the premium. I am not successful enough to justify the cost when I can do the basic for free. I love this site for the encouragment and to keep track of my food., an... Read more

I rode my mountain bike this morning. I felt euphoric but also this ride was quite a reality check concerning my fitness level. I followed my walking route and found out I can't make the trek without stopping when riding my bike. I stopped a lot... Read more

I get down on myself when I eat off track but the thing is I usually don't go over the calories and that is improvement for me. I am a food addict and a hard core binge eater. Therefore, to be able to get right back on plan is such an improvem... Read more

I am eyeing the 190's. I am going to be below 200 and that will be so awesome. I have never stayed over 200 this long. Ironically, earlier this year, I was below 190, but I ate myself up to 220. I was trying to lose, but I got stuck and star... Read more

So that anxiety sensation has finally waned.
Saturday, June 13, 2020      4 comments

Prayer, exercise and capturing thoughts that can send me on an emotional spiral have helped alleviate that ball of anxiety that had become a part of my days. The world is still nuts, I am still in pain, difficult relationships remain difficult,... Read more
