    Ok, so here I am again. Surprise! I have been on Sparkpeople for over 10 years. In 2008-09, I lost 70 lbs. I have never gained them all back, but I did gain 57 of them back. Then in 2017, I lost 47, most of which I have gained back (around 35 lbs.) I can't tell you why I can't make this wo... Read more

    I realized this week, I am stressed as I prepare for my trip to South America. I have so many to do lists, I can't find them all LOL. Regardless the plane leaves Sunday at 6:35 AM and I will be on it. The scale is telling me that I have been doing a bit of stress eating. While my weight has fl... Read more

  • No energy at all

    2/12/2020 5:00:54 PM, by AUNTRENEE

    Well, the low energy (sometimes no energy) is back. No matter if I do take iron pills and B12 pills or not, I am tired. As we speak, I am REALLY tired. I had plenty of sleep last night (a little over 8 hours of sleep) . I know that I am not depressed (if I am, it's not even a 1 on the scale) because... Read more

    Ok, I stayed at low end of my calorie range and got 10,000 steps everyday except one. I avoided fast food and chocolate on a high stress day and ice cream and cupcake at a birthday celebration.

  • Tough Day

    2/5/2020 6:16:53 AM, by BEACHCOMBER16

    Yesterday was hard. We usually have 3 people in our classroom and we were down to just me. The kids were definitely not at there best. I was so stressed I just wanted to leave and never come back. My usual habit would be to soothe myself with fast food and a huge amount of chocolate. I got in th... Read more

  • Ground Hog Day & After the Party & Targets

    2/2/2020 2:14:38 PM, by KALISWALKER

    Some think Canada has a lot of national holidays but Ground Hog Day is not one of them, it's classified as a celebration. I am challenged to think of it's importance as something to celebrate today. These are the paid holidays (statutory) where I live. New Year's Day Wednesday, January 1 ... Read more

  • Switching doctors

    1/30/2020 8:29:34 AM, by AUNTRENEE

    I had to switch 2 of my doctors. Not due to bad care but due to insurance. My insurance and the hospital that 2 doctors work for doesn't have a contract. Both new doctors are an hour away but at least I have a doctor to go to. The two that I had to replace was my gastroenterologist and my pulmonolog... Read more
