  • Need To Get Back In The Habit

    12/7/2019 11:43:40 AM, by PORTIA70

    This was one of my weak points on my last SparkPeople Profile, tracking my food. Often I would get embarrassed over going above my calorie intake that I would just skip it. So in this profile I plan to be more honest about it. We all mess up sometimes, but by facing our fears of what other ... Read more

    12/7/2019 1:02:19 AM, by FRITZYS_MAMA

    So Wyatt thinks I need my appendix out. He's probably right. I have a doctor appointment coming up soon so hopefully I can get things taken care of. I had a difficult day yesterday and didn't do well, so my stats are bad today, but I'm just not feeling well these days. I tried to do a core workout b... Read more

I haven't been able to exercise lately because I haven't been feeling good but my eating has been much improved lately. Just haven't really been hungry lately. ... Read more

    Thanksgiving of course left a mark on my weight.

    We took Fritzy to a water park to celebrate his Thanksgiving break and while I was too sick to go swimming and had to stay in the hotel, he has been having fun. I have been eating a lot more than normal, of course, and I'm sure I'll have a lot of bloat. There's not much that can be done for that. I ... Read more
